    This is a resort not a beach resort cause there is no beach. The water that it provides access to is very rocky so you can’t walk on the or in the beach. The food was great. At the Maliki’s, Barharini and Spice Route. The service was great. The pools are beautiful. The hotel really goofed up on certain things- no phone or heart dryer in our room. Had to ask for it. There are no things to use in the water - paddle boards, snorkel gear etc. They are a resort? We paid full board I.e all food included, but at times we were told we could eat anything and at others that we couldn’t eat seafood. They give you a welcome letter to try their specialty restaurant but they are fully booked. Water is paid for. Really? Which world do we live in? Worst of all- no wifi in the rooms and very patchy through the resort.

    Great hotel, service and food!! Wonderful swimming pools where children can enjoy so much! The only real problem was the beach, one of the worse in that area!

    The customer service is superb a 5star service to every guest. I would recommend this hotel anytime to anyone without hesitation. I have stayed at hundreds of beach hotels in Mombasa Malindi Lamu Zanzibar and I would say Swahili beach hotel is the BEST. Bravo to the managers.
