We think that we need the category good between average and very good to describe Makuti Villas Reosrt in Kilifi Town Mombasa Kenya Coast.
The staff is all warm and friendly and mostly speak good English.
The rooms are basic but comfortable although I think there is need for more insect control.
After a very special safari in the Serengeti and Ngorongoron, I wanted to take a week of relaxing.
I found Mombasa and Malindi too noisy and to much tourist around, when I passed through Kilifi, halfway Mombasa- Malindi, I found this little hotel; a big tropical garden with 10 bungalows around a nice swimming pool, the bungalows are covered with a very big roof that give the name at the place.
Makuti Villas Resort in Kilifi Kenya has 4 rooms each with their own bathroom and veranda, 1 of the bungalows is transformed in a very airy en simpatic restaurant I found the service good and the food excellent.
The people are very kind and do everything to please the clients. During the day I went by foot to town center, the post office and looking around.
I went also to the different beaches; the owner (an Italian) arranged the transport when I wanted to go a little more far. The prices, 55 dollars full board is very low.
I certainly advice this hotel for a very good stay in Kenya.
The pool is large and well laid out for either a brisk or a leisurely swim but sometimes the afternoons are disturbed by loud poolside music making conversation difficult.
Although service is slow in the restaurant the food is usually very good when it arrives.
. The location is good and the grounds have a lot of potential and a few minor additions such as some comfortable seating in the TV tent would be an improvement.
For non-residents (non-Kenyans) tariffs are quoted in Euro and then converted into Kenyan Shillings at a non competitive exchange rate so my advice is, if possible pay in the currency quoted..
