Got moved to a slightly better room, but both were small, old, a bit mouldy and with a stuttering air con. Bar - small, dark and...

Booked with Thompsons 6 weeks before we traveled and we had the most amazing experience. Kenya is an amazing place to visit the staff and administrators at the hotel are so friendly and are so keen to ensure you have a great holiday, couldn't of had a better holiday.

We stayed at Bamburi Beach hotel for one week at the end of September. I have never met people like the Kenyan people. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, from the cleaner to the Manager. The entertainment staff worked their socks off all day and evening to make sure your stay was excellent. Look out for Weasley Snipes...

We booked our wedding package and holiday to Bamburi through first choice. I wasn't impressed with the service we received, a collection of small gripes rather than anything serious, but as it was our wedding, and i was expecting to be better cared for. I wouldn't recommend anyone use these for their wedding as they are simply not interested in...

Stayed at Bamburi Beach 23/10/08 - 7/11/07. Was a bit apprensive after reading mixed reviews on T/A, the only thing wrong with the hotel is that it is dated and in need of a refurb. Watch out if you have natural blonde hair, it turns green in the swimming pool. The food was great, the staff lovely, Animation team leave...

We stayed at this hotel 25/10-05/11 2007 and after reading various reviews were somewhat pessimistic. Thankfully our doubts were quickly dispelled as the hotel was much better than the reviews led us to believe. The staff could not do enough for you and any request was dealt with quickly and efficiently. We asked to change our room as the air...

Don’t accept room 112 it’s mould in it and very high humidity. We got room 340 after the first night and it was perfect. A very god place to stay. It would be better if you could stay without al inclusive so the other restaurants could survive…
