Positive Reviews

Amazing staff.

Others remarked the staff members were always smiling and they had genuine warmth. If you’re looking for accommodation in Kenya where you’ll receive outstanding service from the hotel employees, this hotel is a good option for you.

Fantastic views.

Many travellers to Southern Palms Beach Resort were staggered by the views they had from their rooms, advising they had a stunning view of the Indian Ocean and the beach from their room.

Stunning pool.

A number of visitors enjoyed the swimming pool facility. They stated the pool had a high degree of cleanliness and the water had a good temperature.

Negative Reviews

Room renovation.

There were some guests that were disappointed with the room décor. They advised the rooms were poorly furnished and were in need of modernisation. The bathrooms in particular came in for criticism from some visitors.

Costly safe.

This is something the hotel may want to look into. A few travellers were unhappy about having to pay to use the safe. Although every hotel has different rules, it would be best to have the cost of using the safe included in the room price, rather than guests having to pay extra to use it.

Slow restaurants.

Some visitors to Southern Palms Beach Resort were disgruntled about the service from staff members in the restaurant. They advised they waited too long to be served and the service should be faster.
