Plaza Beach Hotel Mombasa
Plaza Beach Hotel Mombasa offers bright, nicely colored rooms with wide balconies. Some of the rooms have a view of the white sands of Bamburi Beach and the blue water of the Indian Ocean while others open up to the shady tropical gardens or the pool.
A small boutique hotel with Moorish design and terraced gardens, its air-conditioned rooms come with ensuite bathrooms which are equipped with a shower, twin or double beds, satellite television, mini bar, in-room safe and hair-dryer. Rooms are airy and spacious and, in a nice touch, the hotel uses shipwheels as headboards. Some rooms are handicap accessible. Baby-sitting services are available at this mid-range hotel..
It has a defined eco-conscious mission and sources food from nearby organic farms and uses solar energy to heat the water. Plaza Hotel Mombasa has a conference center with state of the art facilities and a business center.
A buffet restaurant set in the tropical gardens serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Themed dinners and a la carte menu with seafood, local and international dishes are also available. Snacks and casual dining are served at the poolside cafe.
Under shady trees and swaying palms, guests can count on sandwiches, light meals, exotic fruit juices, cool beer or tropical cocktails. And for a little bit of indulgence, there are ice cream ad pastries as well. The lounge bar doubles up as a coffee bar.
All-day room service is available.
There is a free-form pool on the grounds.
Nightly entertainment at dinner.

The Dive Center at the Plaza takes divers of all experience – from novices to pros – to 25 dive sites to swim with sea turtles, parrot fish, sting rays, moray eels, white tip reef sharks and whale sharks, the latter being one of the highlights of diving in Mombasa.
Plaza Beach Hotel Mombasa has eco-friendly practices and its food, made with organic ingredients, is pretty good.
Could do with more variety during the evening entertainment and on-site activities.
