The place is just on the beach, good for drinking something. Affordable prices. Prepare to be hussled by many false guides and vendors if you sit next to the beach. They cannot enter the place anyway. The food was decent but nothing more. Fries soaking oily but they kindly made them again for us. Nicely done!

you have the best bands but you need to improve little bit, we had the expectations of listening to Bango music as we were told hats the taste of coastal people mostly the Mijikendas, the food yes u have the best chefs. security wise its average why because in most cases during public holidays it gets crowded and u never know who can help you keep your belongings.

We stopped by the bar to have a couple of drinks and to do some people watching on the beach...it was a pretty area and nice scenery. All in all, it's your typical beach bar. However, the bar staff did nothing to stop people from hassling their guests. We live in Kenya so we're used to it but it was really not comfortable sitting there and having multiple people come up to us and hassle us even after we firmly said "no" multiple times. I would not go here with children or with anyone that easily feels unsafe.

a spectacular view of the Indian ocean.affordable drinks,great service and good music as the waves roll in the sea shore. and you can access the beach.tourist police are always around carry your documents when on the beach at night for locals.
the best place in the Mombasa to watch fireworks as they light up in the open beautiful sea during New Years eve.the nightlife here doesn't disappoint...Mombasa raha indeed!

After reading a raving description of Pirates in our guidebook, we'd pretty much made up our mind to spend the 3 days we were having at Kenyatta Beach basically eating and drinking at Pirates the whole time. It described it as family friendly, the place to be, absolutely buzzing, great night life, music, dancing, great food and with all facilities you could possibly need. Unfortunately the reality was far from it.... The place was basically empty, of people and of water in the whole of the swimming pool area at the back! The 'changing rooms' were pitch black with no lights and could hardly be described as facilities and with that that and the fact that there were no working showers and all the toilets were either not working, had no running water or literally had maintenance men in them 24/7, we were hard push to find any working or decent facilties. With the location it was hardly like we could nip to the next bar as there weren't any.... When it came to ordering food, most of what we requested on the menu wasn't available, as a vegetarian I had to keep settling for a plate of chips and some sad looking salad whereas my friend ordered chicken and chips. When it came to paying, we paid the amount on the bill, leaving a generous tip and headed off down the beach, only to be chased by the waiter who explained that we'd underpaid and owed quite a bit more. Mortified at having this happen in public we paid but on return the next day discovered we had been massively overcharged and after grilling the waiter was told this was because the chef had decided to give my friend more chicken (despite not asking for it) and so it was double the price. The lockers which were available to hire didn't inspire much hope at all as most of the padlocks were broken and most of the lockers themselves rusting and falling apart. Needless to say we only used them for a short period of time, far too paranoid to leave our belongings for any length of time.

Overall very disappointed as we'd had high hopes for this place but it didn't live up to it's reputation at all.
