“Beautiful hotel”

published 20/07/2007

ProGreat hotel, next to the beach, helpful staff

ConsHeavy rain can cause powercuts!

Starter point: Right before I go off on one and make you want to go on a holiday to Kenya I do have to warn you of some hidden costs, so I will do that before hand! VISA Before you can enter Kenya you need a visa. This costs £30 per person and can be gained at the airport or by printing off the...

“Wonderful holiday!”

Progreat staff and service / setting

Conssellers on the beach!

have stayed at the Whitesands Hotel twice in the past year - both trips were with my partner. The first was a holiday and the second was completely voluntary charity work in nearby village Bamburi. The rooms were beautiful and cleanliness was of a very high standard, the maids were also polite...

my family has been going to whitesands for 15 years, and we find it, absolutely great. the rooms are comfortable and always, clean, the view is breath-taking, it is the hotel with the largest sea-front, and the five pools are just perfect. the food is always delicious, with a huge variety to choose from everyday, and all the staff are always helpful, polite, and eager to please you. Overall, the best exotic and relaxing experience in a beautiful landscape.

Satisfactory

published 20/06/2007

I think Whitesands is way overrated. I am a Kenyan and I must say this hotel is NOT a 5 star hotel. The rooms have not been updated for years. The owners should do some benchmarking with some Carribean and other tropical destinations. Whitesands is way overpriced and lacks the exclusive service I have seen in Jamaica, Bahamas etc. The beach boys and other traders are also a nuisance to everyone. Is there anyway to maintain the privacy of the guests in the hotel? I recall when I was younger, the beaches were private properties of the hotels and no one other than guests were allowed on the beach. It was so much nicer then....

“Very Average Indeed!”

published 23/08/2006

ProGood swimming pool, nice beach

ConsBeach traders, Outdated room, Pushy Waiters

Having read a number of fantastic reviews about Sarova Whitesands Hotel I was pretty upbeat about going to the hotel, but how wrong could I be. 'Supposedly' five star service seemed more like a mediocre three. Although the outside swimming pool area was pleasing and entertainment was adequate...

“Kenyan Residents Review”

published 18/09/2006

ProThe BEST hotel I've stayed at in Kenya

ConsNone

Whitesands Hotel stands out on the Bamburi Coast like a beacon to all other hotels - this is how you do it. Rooms- clean, luxurious, showers, air-con, room service, telephones, TV etc - all good. Most rooms have sea views, overlooking beautiful palm grassed areas and the outdoor pool. Resturants...

Super

published 22/07/2007

We have just returned from our holiday to Kenya where we stayed at White Sands Hotel. The hotel is good, clean and the staff very friendly. The food in the main dining area is okay but does become a bit repetitive although the pizza place and Lidos fish restuarant are very good. We went on safari to the Masai Mara and stayed at Fig Tree camp, now this was fantastic to say the least. We booked this trip on the beach just up from the water sport centre with a local guy who calls himself 'Dr Fire' the holiday tour rep will advise against this because he wants to make himself a big fat commission. All in all a pleasant trip. Malc (Preston)
