We had a fantastic stay at Kenyaways B&B for 8 nights in December 2016. Stephen, the manager was extremely friendly and they helps us with several requests such as storing our bags when we were off to Safari.

Thank you very much for your positive review and good advise. We are sorry the restaurant manager was grumpy - not very Christmas spirited! Usually he is very charming and helpful maybe the tensions was high because it was very busy! It was very nice to meet your family and friends and hope you have a wonderful 2017.

Due to the restaurante and the kite school being independent from the hotel, lot os people took the place and the beds. It´s unaceptable that people from outside the hotel, not ever...

Hi - Many thanks for your positive review and helpful comments. The security team also complained of outsiders using the facilities and not cooperating. Something we are strongly working on. You are absolutely right. Thank you.

The location is near the ocean in the coastal forest. There are fee rooms in an old big and confortable house. If you wish a real typical African atmosphere here you find it. From the white house you see the white sand of the beach. All is confortable and relaxing. The restaurant serves good food. Here there is an International...

Very quiet and relaxing stay right on the beach. My only complaint would be poor wi-fi but it was nice to unplug and lounge by the water reading books. Would definitely recommend a stay here if you're looking for a simple, clean and affordable place right on the water.
