Bandari beach hotel: Seen better days ....but
Perched on the bank on the Mnarani side of Kilifi creek stands Bandari beach hotel.
This place has seen better days and is looking slightly faded but still the position of the hotel down a windy lane probably hasn’t helped the place even as I walked down the lane there I only saw one battered sign post that was not exactly pointing in the right direction. All this is a shame really as its lovely spot where the hotel stands on the creek above a small sandy beach which is only occupied by a few beached dhows.
The shady bar has a nice view looking out over the creek.
The hotel has many self contained rooms costing 1000 Ksh

Mnarani Club: Classy joint
Don’t be confused by the name Mnarani Club is a hotel and not a club. I’m not sure where the name comes from maybe at one time the place was a club of some sort before becoming a hotel, and what a hotel it is.
I really like this place, not that I have ever spent a night here but on my recent trip I came here for a swim on a few occasions. Well I say swim, but for a large part of the time that I spent in the pool a lot of it was spent leaning on the edge of the infinity pool staring out over the creek to the open water beyond.
It’s not just the pool here that is a bit classy; If you can’t hear “Jambo Bwana” being played anywhere in tourist hotel at any time then it is a sure sign that you are in a classy joint. Mnarani Club is a joint.
Unlike tourist hotels north or south of Mombasa this place is not one of many hotels injh a long strip of hotels lining the beach, it is very much a stand alone hotel perched above Kilifi creek with a steep path down to its own private beach from where the hotel operates all its diving and water sports.
I also enjoyed a meal here on a few occasions. When the hotel has low occupancy lunch has to be ordered from the menu but generally a buffet is in operation at lunch time.

Roasters: Cheap and cheerfull
Roasters is a bar that not surprisingly with a name like that also specialises in roasted meat, but also happens to have a few rooms available for accommodation.
Roasters is over the bridge from Kilifi proper in the village of Mnarani. I had intended to stay at a place I knew about called Giriama Bar that is supposed to have rooms but when I arrived at the Giriama found it half way through some serious refurbishment.
Roasters is not so far from Giriama bar and is also having a bit of a refurb. The refurbishment to the accommodation will smarten up the existing basic rooms. At the moment the rooms have stone floors in fairly big rooms with a biggish bed but with a smallish mosquito net. The one room that is almost complete now has a tiled floor and bathroom. There was also some talk of having fans fitted.
The bar itself never got too busy while I was there but had a regular stream of customers in the evening buying their 100 bob Tuskers from the friendly and helpfull staff.
Unique Quality: 400 KSH for a bog standard room in
