My first time at Reef van in 2013 and it was even my first time in Mombasa. I fell in love with Kenya staying at this resort. The staff is so friendly and know what hospitality is all about. The rooms and service are up to standard and I just love the beach view garden with a great restaurant (never had a bad meal ever) and two bars, But still its feels like a tranquile relaxing zone! The acces to the beach is guarded, though I would advice anyone to take a walk at the amazing Mombasa Beach and breath in Arican beacht life! The resort has wo more resaurants and facilities for functions like a wedding. There is a shopping mall (very westernized with even an Carrefour) 10 minutes walk from the resort in a very safe and friendly part of Mombasa called Nyali with shops, bars (upstairs) and restaurants. There are also some bars ane restaurants to explore on the way there. Feel free to book a safari or other trips with the activities manager Isabella and explore Kenya! I keep coming back here for just a chat or a stay and every time is a s pleasant as the the first one. Patience and Isabella, you are the best hostesses I'll ever meet!

The air conditioning didn't work. The receptionist said he would have it looked at and fixed and didn't. The walls must be paper thin it was very noisy. Check out time is 10 am which is way too early. Nice location is about all I can say good about this hotel.

The hotel is located in a beautiful area and whole hotel complex is very comfortable and nice to stay. The area is big, safe and pleasant. The location is great, just above the beautiful beach, with easy tuk tuk access to carrefour or even Mombasa city. Rooms are very clean and have great view. The staff is extremely nice, friendly and helpful. Food is good too. I will be back in future.
