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.

The rooms are a 10/10 and the exterior (pools, decor etc )looks awesome. The dining experience however left a lot to be desired, choosing to have concrete roofs next to hot stoves is very puzzling - cooler palm trees are a fire hazard but the alternative solution cannot to just let guest sweat it out. I have never sweat more during meals. Options for kids menu was limited (esp my 5 yr old). Staff could be friendlier and more efficient- my wife and I had to separately endure over 10 minutes waits on pasta (dinner ), egg stand (b/fast ) when attendant chefs just left for ingredients without warning. it also took over 40 minutes to clear used cutlery from tables which we plied at the center. I didnt feel staff motivation- the frond desk staff and kids attedants however did a great job. We were there for 18 hours as we needed a place for a day as our usual Diani destination was full for that day. Having never been to Swahili beach, I thought would provide a great opportunity to assess for a future stay. Given we travelled with two kids- I wouldn't rate them high for family stay- but would make for a great couple/ individual stay. Service enthusiasm needs to improve a tad but they desperately need to fix the heat levels in their open restaurant to get a higher rating from me( the paid specialty restaurants may have aircon but we didnt venture there due to kids - but that cant be an excuse not to cater for everyone else).

Beautiful hotel! We had a great time! The staff was so helpful and the food was wonderful!
