I rented an apartment here for a number of months and it was a complete disaster.. Day one the neighbours were fighting and police were called. Internet problems.. They promised to create a gym and this wasn’t done - after 4 months They made me pay for maintenance and then charged me for painting when I left when it was never done when I lived in??? Management is a disgrace and just money grabbers, no care for tenants, just $$$ Weekends are noisy - fine if on holiday but not if you want quiet / peace.. For the price they charge and services offered- I’d go somewhere else.. much better to be found around Mombasa, unless you accept sub standard service and a management team that just don’t care for you!

Clean, safe, and spacious apartment. All of the staff were welcoming, hardworking, and friendly, and the food was delicious. We stayed in a two-story apartment for two nights. One of the balconies had a spa. Pool looked inviting, and we will definitely stay here, again.
