Kilifi is one of the main holiday towns on the Kenya north coast (ie north of Mombasa), and because it's proximity to the Somalia border, it's (tourism driven) local economy is often bullied by travel advisories. However, this is Africa. So be a little adventurous! We stayed at Mnarani Club on the recommendation of a Saffer (South African) friend a...

This hotel is beautifully situated and has a lovely infinity pool and sand beach. The rooms are comfortable and clean, but a bit basic and it took a while for the air conditioner to reach a comfortable temperature. Sitting on the terrace for dinner and breakfast was delightful. The food was a bit mixed. We enjoyed some delicious local fish...

We visited Mnarani as a day trip from Mombasa. It was a quite reasonable KSh1,300/= per person for the lunch buffet and swimming. Buffet Lunch: My wife had the chicken, which was bland. I had steak with fries, which was much tastier. Swimming Pool: The infinity pool was exquisite. It looks out onto the Kilifi creek from a high vantage...

I have annually visited Mnarani for the last almost 10 years and it is a great place to be. Their breakfast is the best that I know of and their services are excellent. The rooms are clean. Insist on a creek room upstairs to get a better view of the ocean. Their swimming pool is one of the best and...

From the moment I arrived I had a great welcom from all the staff. I stayed in a spotlessly clean room by The Garden. The pool is the best I have ever seen. Everything is taken care for you by the lovely staff. Even my boarding pass for my flight home was printed for me by the reception I look...

I went for a business lunch here and ended up extending my stay. I loved their food and service.The views are amazing. I didn't get to spend the night here,so I would know how the rooms are,but I'm guessing they are good.

As usual we had a great welcome from the staff. Such a joy to return to the Club. For the next five and a half weeks we were looked after so very well.
