Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Visited the place last weekend and we really had an amazing time. Their seafood platter and drinks were so astonishing plus the beach view and breeze. Can't wait to get to Mombasa to visit Maasai Beach hotel. Y'all amazing and thank you for your service....Kudos!More

Sea view, Freshly Grilled Lobster, Prosecco and Live Music. Service slightly slow but who cares when there is tasty food and the sea only a few metres away. Romantic, Value for money and highly recommended. See you soon.

The service was good, however we were served small potions , not value for our money, we tried to talk to the chef and manager in vain, the waiter was so apologetic and very helpful , but when we asked her to call the chef,...the chef refused to come to listen to our woes.More

This place has the best grilled meats ,chicken,Pork but I suspect they don't realise that as they haven't capitalised on service which is slow and not so friendly, having said that ,it remains my favourite Choma (grill)place any day any time

Maasai Beach offers an excellent place to chill out by the beach. Sample the delicious foods on offer as you listen to music or take a dip in the ocean. The staff are friendly.

Ate here to sample the 'nyama choma' get a break from 'hotel' food. The meat was tender and delicious. The chapatis though stole the show. They were made on order and well worth the wait. I salivate just thinking about them. Kudos Chef.

Heard a lot of great things about this place. We had choma and all the extra's was just about ok. I had far better elsewhere in Mombasa. It's very overpriced for what you get. I would not go back.

One of the busiest place for locals and tourists for an authentic NYAMA CHOMA Dinner. Food takes long to be serves, but then you get the REAL Thing. Fantastic Mbuzi, Beef, Chicken and Pork straight from the grill with Ice CCold Beer and good Music...and the Weekend can start.More

Yes, this branch of Maasai is by the beach, but that is the only thing going for it - and that's not saying much given how many other beach bars there are. Service was appalling. The cocktails were possibly the worst I have ever experienced....The food took so long I marched off to the kitchen and demanded to speak to the chef to find out if he'd suddenly resigned. When it came, the squid starter was okay but not worth the wait. Never again.More

Been to this place so many times but this last visit was disappointed. Ordered fried pork and came with so much onions could hardly find any meat. Informed the chef and he gave us more meat. Even the lady who was serving us was surprised....Won’t be ordering that again. All in all, they have the best pork.More

It is a resto. Food prices are reasonable and you get good size portions.
