our fishing charter operator was able to pick us up on the breach right in front of the hotel
showers were very unreliable. On one or two of the days it was fill pressure and hot. The rest it was a dribble and often luke warm or cold.
Great location, lovely decking. Thomas and FAith really friendly and helpful!
The view, the ambience, the pool, the room (simple but nice), the staff (most obliging, especially the male waiters, the barmen and Thomas, the booking clerk), fresh fish on the menu!
Having to wait too long over meals... over an hour for a set menu comprising starter, main dish and dessert. Some female waiters - only one really good female waiter. Only a trickle of water in the basin in our room. Meals on the whole could do with some improvement.
good position and frendly staff
Resort in bad condition. the price is not matching the level of the hotel.
Ocean Sports was positioned perfectly to explore the surrounding area. we found a couple of guides who took us to lots of places during our stay, some we would never have found simply exploring alone. The beaches were beautiful!
Everything was excellent - nothing to dislike!
friendly and helpful staff - capacity and goodwill to resolve with the help of booking.com a different stay schedule.
the price is not matching the level of the hotel - month of august is not the right period to stay at this place as the beach is not existant due to high tides (not strictly an hotel problem) prices dropped dramatically in the last weeks and this had not been reflected to customers having booked months in advance. rooms are located in bungalows and no mentioning of this in the website.
Resort in bad need of renovation. Bedroom door did not lock. Poor condition of furniture. Garden unkempt. Bar area was uncomfortable. Certainly the resort is not what you portray it to be in your photos, I think they must have been taken when the resort first opened many years ago. Supposed to be a free cancellation but on moving resorts we were only refunded 25% of deposit. Would not recommend. Booking.com also gives false info because on your website you say that there are only a few rooms available yet when we arrived, we were the only guests.
Food, beds & staff.
Seaweed on the beach.
Great location, charming helpful staff, excellent food, clientele includes local people as well as tourists (unlike a lot of Watamu hotels).
You need to make allowances for the fact that there are regular power cuts and the wi-fi is slow
The room was amazing. Bar restaurant area beautiful swimming pool nice but needs a bit of work to get it to same standard as rest of place
The best location you can get in Watamu!! Nice disposition of the place and you get away to your own little place when you sleep where it's quiet and peaceful. Very good food -we had half board.
Friendly staff, tasty food, clean white beach, quite democratic (without fervor) atmosphere, attention to each guest. Big thanks to the manager Emily. We were feeling like a favorite grandson feels a in his grandmother's house
There was a few vegetables for breakfast in the hotel
