Very comfortable rooms overlooking Mombasa old harbour, an idyllic, historic and romantic setting. Fantastic amenities right on the waterfront, excellent service, and world class cuisine, highly recommended.

I managed to have an opportunity of doing a site inspection of this property and two things that I can point that stand out; 1) The location of the apartments is amazing overlooking the Indian Ocean and 2) The rooms are very spaceous

Visited the property over new years on a family holiday. Really enjoyed.good food service was good despite the large no of visitors. The apartments are also clean and is perfect for a family holiday as it offers the option of self catering.you can also hire a chef at a small cost. All in all very enjoyable family holiday

Personable, intimate and yet all the amenities you need. Very reasonable for what you get. Love the rooms, love the decor, love the staff. Service is excellent. Getting your bill is a little long, so be sure to give yourself time to checkout. The tamarind restaurant is typically great food and great atmosphere, but for some reason they sometimes book...

I always stay here when in Mombasa. Accommodation is a little dated but more than spacious with great views. Staff very friendly. Great bar and the restaurant is always a great place for quality meals.

This restaurant is great for seafood, the service, the views, the music, the ambience is authentic. The swahili welcoming culture is seen as you interact with the staff . Be sure to ask for recommendations of what's good.

Reviewed 24 November 2016

The Tamarind has the distinction of having an on-site casino for those who fancy a gamble. The facilities are are basic, but is adequate for whiling away the time. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the bars and restaurants on site are great. A fishing charter is available that departs from the hotel jetty.
