We visited Kijiji beach resort on a Day after Christmass , 26th of 2021, the onboarding and registration is smooth I admired the having a swimming experience on ocean but unfortunately the day we went the water as very far away Their services when it comes to the whole swimming is good, from exchange rooms are at very good quality to the swimming pools themselves. The only thing I didn't like about Kijiji beach resort swimming pools is the number of people was too high to an extent making it very hard to relax while swimming, but it might be because we went during the holiday

The hotel canceled the booking immediately AFTER I left. In addition, higher costs were charged than originally booked with Agoda. The price booked according to the booking confirmation was USD 52.65. I had to pay $ 65 USD. If I refused to pay the higher amount, the security staff was called and I was threatened with the police. For this reason, I then paid the higher amount. In general, the hotel is not recommended. Insanely loud music is played all day long, so that you can neither hang out at the pool nor on the beach. The horror ended at 11 p.m. at night. In response to my complaint, I was told that I was a white guest in the country and had to accept it as it was a hotel for black people. The food and the service in the reestaurant was disgusting and extremely expensive. We ordered chicken, waited an hour even though there were no guests in the restaurant and got chicken breast without any side dish. The waitress forgot to ask for it. All in all a terrible experience. I will never visit this hotel again!

We stayed here for 2 nights. Nice and cousy bungalows with clean bathroom. Staff was very friendly! The hostess helped us with everything and Ali was a very nice waiter! Free wifi in the room and on the beach. Good lunch and diner menu for a reasonable price. Pizza and grilled chicken for under 6 dollar each!

It was day filled with lots of expectations to have fun and games on the beach but it needed up to be a rather rainy day with more time spent in the swimming pool.... with water sports and music that left the people enjoying under the circumstances.

The beach and the resort has an excellent location and well maintained. I reached there by 11 am. I ordered drinks for my friends and myself. To my surprise, all the waiters were in a meeting with their boss and no one brought the drinks till 45 min passed. When it came to pay the bill. They simply brought the receipt with total amount without any breakdown of items we consumed. We had to spend 20min with the waiter to list the things we consumed. We were charged almost 25000 tshs extra with no account for the money. I asked to see the manager but non of the waiters responded to my plea. It isn’t a very good hospitality. Honestly it is a very good place to go out with family and friends but the service and honesty needs to improve. If you need more clarification kindly contact me on my details below. Thank you.
