Taking the time to plan out your Mombasa vacation can be an exciting adventure in and of itself. Whether you’re traveling alone, with your spouse, with your entire family, or with friends, you want to ensure that this particular vacation is the best that it can be.

When booking your Mombasa hotel, you’ll find there are plenty of options. There are so many hotels in and around the Mombasa area that you may ultimately decide on the cheapest one and be incredibly disappointed once you get there. You could also choose one of the higher end resorts and also find that it doesn’t quite live up to your expectations.

Here are three considerations that are important to make when choosing your Mombasa Hotel at which to stay.

Consideration #1: Location.

As realtors all around the world will attest, there are three most important things when choosing a particular destination: location, location, location. If you want to spend a lot of time at any of the white, sandy beaches in Mombasa, you want to make sure you choose a hotel that is at least within walking distance. If you choose a hotel that is too far away, it can cost you time and money just trying to get there with taxis or the hotel shuttle.

Consideration #2: Cost.

Many people make their decisions with regard to a hotel based on cost. However, if that’s what you’re planning to do for your Mombasa vacation, you could be in for a surprise. Yes, there are plenty of hotels can choose from and save a lot of money, but the amenities and other options may cause your vacation to be less than ideal.

Consideration #3: A swimming pool.

Maybe you’re in the habit of choosing a hotel based on and other amenities within the rooms, such as a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, iron, and more, but when you’re at a tropical destination that is right along the equator, a swimming pool can feel like a lifesaver. Make sure your Mombasa hotel has a swimming pool for you and the rest your family. It doesn’t matter whether you have kids with you, you’ll be spending a lot of time at that pool during the early morning and evening hours.
