Client Rating for Kenya 5/5 from 58 reviews

Msambweni Beach House is in a spectacular setting on the cliffs above a quiet beach area, so you\'re unlikely to be troubled by the beach boys who hang around in so many other places on the southern coast. Having drinks before dinner on the viewing platform under the incredibly bright stars and Milky Way was quite an experience. My room was very spacious and had a large loggia which was occasionally visited by small inquisitive monkeys who seemed harmless but quite used to humans and therefore a bit on the cheeky side. I made sure I didn\'t leave anything out that they could make off with! Generally I thought the accomodation was of a good standard and the service acceptable if a little apathetic. MBH was very peaceful and made for a good final place to unwind at before returning to the UK.
