Camilla and her team are excellent! The beds are huge and comfortable. The children swam all day and enjoyed themselves tremendously. It's a hidden gem which I would recommend without reservation!
Invest more in the kitchen. Meals are okay but could be better.
My room fridge was sealed while i did not yet check out & my personal things were inside without any reason. I just went for breakfast and someone entered the room & sealed it.
Location Price Hotel manager, very helpful
Camila is great. She makes everyone feel at home and tries to put her personal touch in almost everything. Lovely place
The villa compound, which is just back from the main strip of hotels on the seafront, was beautifully crafted. Each individual villa was surrounded by flowers, and mostly it was wonderfully serene. Staff were friendly and accommodating throughout.
My only reservation about this resort was the poolside music. In such a relaxing place, it seemed totally out of place (too loud).
What a great bargain for your money. Fantastic staff. Camilla and her team are wonderful and respectful. We had an amazing 4 days!! We will make it a regular part of our vacation plans
Nothing. Simply superb!
Excelent staff, nice view (executive villa), very testy fresh seefood (tip - talk to staff what you want to eat). Best Kenyan place for snorkeling!
the beach is not too close to the resort
The staff especially in the restaurant was really excellent.
Very spacious villas set in very beautiful gardens. Due to the presence of the Kenyan Tourist Police at the property it is a very safe place to stay at. The pool is a nice size. Although set back from the beach, the people living around the property are very friendly and you can walk to the main road quickly for transport.
The online booking prices were much higher than what I might have negotiated locally at Villa Watamu or at other resorts of similar standard, or even closer to the time. Once booked, you cannot cancel bookings at this property; your credit card will get charged 100% for it. I would not make a pre-booking here in the future, perhaps in the high season (Nov-Jan).
It looks lovely, and it's very quiet and relaxed - not like the Italian Club Med-type resorts, which have Italo-pop music blaring out of the tannoy all the time and "animators" pushing you to do aquagym or other activities (E.G. Aquarius). Service in the restaurant is pleasant, but extremely slow (but that seems to be the whole Kenyan coast).
A bit overpriced (but then so is everything in Watamu). Breakfast is poor for the price (the fruit is great but fruit is great, and cheap, all over the coast). The rooms are spacious but (bathrooms) are a bit dated. Pillows a bit lumpy. There's no shade on the beaches: there are a few dirty charpoys for rent but the hut roofs are too small for proper shade. So you have to pay to use a resort - prices vary considerably and the hotel should have a price-list.
Rooms comfortable, good Aircon. Swimming pool good
Service from kitchen very slow
Very friendly staff, quiet accommodation, good breakfasts, good pool, help with booking reliable tuk-tuks for excursions, especially in evening, good shower, transfers from airport at fixed price
extra 5% surcharge on card payment not given on any booking information, constant brit pop music at restaurant, wrong side of road and further from the beach than advertised (15mins walk, not 5mins)
