We arrived late in the day to what appeared to be an abandoned camp. All the buildings were falling apart. There were rusty old swings and climbing frames and all sorts of broken sheds and piles of junk. Suddenly George appeared and welcomed us and to our amazement told us that they were indeed open. We took a look around.... More

A cool place sweet for picnics and weekend rest. They stock a variety of drinks, expensive though. the beach is covered with lots of hyacinth so fishing is not possible at the moment . They sell good fresh fish from the ponds.

After a looooong ride we arrived at the shores of Lake Victoria at the Kisumu Beach Resort. Although a little run down, the staff was incredibly friendly and attentive and offered us a cold beer in an instant. A well stocked bar, and fresh fish on the menu, this place makes the few guests it receives these days feel welcomed... More

From poor reception, lack of room service, confused guests and no uniformed room service staff.The place is a disappointment.I can't forget the security dogs which are late out in the evening and you can't even enjoy the only best thing in that place being a stroll under the palm trees. Truly the photos in the website are misleading and the... More

If you wish to enjoy the 'fragrance' of Kisumu City's open sewage traveling over the waters to your nostrils, be "greeted" by an arrogant son of the proprietor with an unwelcoming "smile", waking up 'refreshed' after a sleepless night (bedbugs and other bugs) and enjoying cold breakfast while falling backwards on a very cheap plastic chair than this is the...

We book two nights at this "resort" after looking at their website, which is rather misleading. When we arrived there was no one around and we had to look for someone to check us in.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
KISUMU BEACH RESORT started operations in 1997. We are a family owned resort. The resort sits on approximately 20 acres of land on the shores of Lake Victoria. We are an environmentally friendly resort and are self sufficient in numerous ways. We grow our own fruits, make our own charcoal and have our own independent water supply. As we have built our hotel around nature, birds such as Fish Eagles, Egyptian Geese, Kingfishers, Egyptian Ibis, Black Ibis and Hammer Cops and a variety of river birds nest within the resort. Hippos grazing are a common site in the evenings. We have the capacity of catering for small and large groups for activities such as camping, conferences or private parties. ... more   less
