Indiana Beach Apartment Hotel
Ranked #9 of 14 Hotels in Bamburi
Reviewed 6 August 2017 via mobile

Stayed for 2 nights , our room was far from the receptions you actually get into another gate so didnt find it very safe , we we however close to the beach. The restaurant is on the beach and we had dinner twice a la carte and both days it was excellent. Rooms were ok for the price but very old.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled with family

Perfect. Tidy rooms with sheets changed regularly. Location is fab. Well looked after in the restaurant which catered for all our needs. Meal times arranged to suit us. Transport for big group no problem, including airport transfers. Fantastic value for the price. Fussy '4star' travellers should look for a 4 star hotel. This place is relaxed, welcoming and plenty good enough. We have paid loads more and got a lot less than is offered at Indiana.

My and my friends stayed in a 4 bed apartment for one night - never again. We weren't expecting great things considering the price, but we were greeted with a dirty room, lights that didn't work, a shower that didn't work and no hot water.... We decided to put up with it, but later that night my friend turned on what looked like a light switch and the boiler in the lounge area sparked! An actual bang, flash of light and smoke. Serious health and safety risk and actually really scary.

We went to reception and the staff on the night shift were very understanding and moved us to a different room (at 2am). However, the next morning we complained with no luck - we were just told that 'these things happen' and the owner left when he heard us complaining, refused to speak to us and even hung up the phone on his own member of staff at reception. Appalling service, especially after such a bad experience the night before.

It's such a shame as the hotel could be lovely - it's in a great location and the communal areas, pools etc. are quite nice. But the rooms are rundown, dirty and dangerous - please don't book this hotel.

Complex with bungalows, apartments and hotel that has old fashioned charm. This is a place to stay a little longer. If you rent monthly the price is reasonable. It used to be $ 500(overwinter that cannot be compared to 2 weeks or so), now tourism is lower so you could get it cheaper. Hotel side has breakfast, it's nice even tough every day the same and the chairs are for anorectic. Or I'm getting fattier with age.

It's really great that housekeeping aren't yelling in the morning and waking up elder gentleman who is trying to get better from Club Casablanca Tropican / Dropan experience. I heard rumors that EU has cattle marked 3 million euros to destroy Dropan cultural history.
Comlex has three swimming pools. So when on if them has distraction you can move to the next one. And of course you can go to the beach.

On of my favourite hobbies is feeding monkeys and getting them drunk. Stole bread form breakfast or buy some. Wet it in brandy or whisky and older male monkeys enjoy it happily so that leaving balcony is groggy. Tipsy alfa monkey takes his herd to raid easily the next door resort. Opposite of the hotels balconies there are cross stick huts where are a lot of open hanging places with peoples stuff all over the place. Good place for a monkey herd. Bungalow manager once came raging that white man is persuading three dozen of monkeys on to his customers. The next day I bought three times more mangos and bread. I don't like when bungalow customers kids are shouting during my evening brandy on the balcony.

Apartment side has small restaurant where the food is okay, all tough meals are small. With kindness, bribery and blackmailing you can try to get bigger sizes. Pool bar on this side has the evil snake, loud TV, which will be turned quiet if you say it appropiately. The apartment building has a very good quality gym in down stairs.

Always check the price before you go there. Sometimes weak minded Narobian gets ripped off. It's a good forth.

This is a good place to relax. Alone or with friends.

Stayed: November 2016, travelled solo

Tried 4 rooms until we found one that we could accept.

List of issues

Wood worm in wardrobes & kitchen units
Dirty sheets & beds
TV very old & unreliable
No internet in room (had to join others in reception)
Chambermaids regularly screaming & shouting to each other along corridors
Hardly any cooking facilities
No hot water for days (No water at all for one day)

Basically, the place needs new ownership & investment.... No really the staffs fault, although a few were totally apathetic to these issues.

Room Tip: Avoid ground floor room near chambermaids room, its so loud with their screaming at 7am...
