This is another dream for you! Visiting Kenia is quite tricky, but here at the beach side you have time to relax and the azuri will protect you from the beach boys which try to sell you souveniers and themself-be aware! The hotel transformed to a real buity. Please think about that many of the locals needs you: please bring... More

We stayed here in September 2007 when we arrived in Mombasa the sight that met us was the poverty so very sad, but the people are always smiling and happy, the children seem to appear from nowhere and they are most happy just to have pens, paper, pencils and maybe the odd sweet now the adults love socks, any clothes,...

I was there in the spring of 2007 with children, three weeks of top entertainment and leisure. In addition to two multi-day safaris (Tsavo East and Amboseli), we went on excursions to the nearby Mombasa, in Mtwapa Creek,and other places with their taxi who called tuc-tuc.People are friendly and polite, generally happy .. The hotel is really old and need... More

Okay so when I stayed here it was a good few years ago, 2001 to be precise. So either the hotel and resort have change HUGELY, or as usual the bad reviews have come from ever unsatisfied Brits; who expect chips for dinner and eastenders for their evening entertainment! We had the most amazing time in Kenya. The hotel was... More

The room we stayed in was damp, hotel was unclean, swimming pool dirty and the food repetitive . The club was eager to keep you in the hotel however we ventured out several times and met lots of really nice people so don't be swayed into staying in the hotel the whole time. Also the beach has lots of interesting... More

I didn't stay at the Coral Palm Beach Hotel, but was down the road at the Dolphin. We went walking around Shanzu and came across the Coral Palm Beach Hotel. It was completely deserted, like the Marie Celeste. We were able to walk around it as if it were a ghost town. It's such a shame, as it looked like... More

Having read the reviews on this website we approached our booking with caution. The last minute deal was however strong enough for us to go with "you get what you pay for" in mind. The ASC plane was very dated and the delux transfer option we'd pre-booked was a waste of time First impressions on arrival at the hotel were,... More
