Pros: great location on the beach. Lots of lounge chairs. Pool & swim up bar. Lots of places to sit to eat/drink. Friendly staff, except 1 lady at beach bar. Breakfast included. Food was ok. Cons: cleaning staff always forgot to give us towels. Moldy shower curtain in Africa 6. Can hear the beach bar late at night from the rooms (ours was far way). Can’t bring your own drinks or snacks in. Power is off and on throughout the night (A/C turns off). Slow service except for the beach bartenders.

Amazing time at Kendwa! Beautiful beach with the bluest water I have ever seen! Beach beds and towels included, great breakfast included! My room was always cleaned perfectly. Although beach had quite a bit of garbage... I also didn’t like how many plastic water bottles they went through, seems like such a waste... Restaurant staff was always friendly... reception was quite rude. Tessilla gave me quite a bit of attitude when I asked about the excursions, as if I was stupid for now already knowing everything lol Besides the small downsides, Kendwa Rocks was a great choice!

What a gem!
Just wow. Kendwa Rocks is absolutely the best. We arrived on the night of the full moon party which was superb, the staff is lovely and helpful, eager to teach basic words in Swahili as well. We had a traditional room, quite spaceous and clean. The pool is great, the beach stretches wider than any other hotels in the area. Sunsets are unbelievable to watch from the beach as well. The food selection is great too. One thing needs fixing and it's the bumpy "road" down to the hotel from the highway. Get ready for a roller-coaster ride, which is well worth it! This was a once in a lifetime experience.
