Loved this hotel, it was a real joy to relax after the busy week that i had on safari. This hotel has really friendly staff, great food and fabulous beach - no beach boys trying to sell you things, they are not allowed to, security guards patrol the beach! Beautiful white sandy beach, but would be advised to wear sandals...

We stayed for 4 days and then went on safari and returned for a week.

We felt this was an excellent place to come and relax after all the travelling we'd done on safari. The room was very pleasant, well maintained, and the food was very good - I particularly recommend the carvery.

This is a great place to relax after a safari. Don't under estimate the importance of being able to walk on the beach without being hassled by beach boys. These can be a big nuisance even though they are always polite. The guards here ensure you have the freedom of the Indian Ocean to enjoy. Staff are really helpful and...

My cousin and I travelled to IOBC in June of this year,we stayed for a week with a little safari thrown in the middle. I wished we had stayed longer.

The hotel is a little oasis of pure relaxation, to be found on the northside of mombassa, its general appearence is likened to your favourite slippers , very comfortable, a bit frayed round the edges,but well loved... the hotels staff are its best assets, you arrive as a stranger and leave as a friend... the general ambiance of the hotel...
