We stayed at Jambo during the December holiday and it was simply an awesome experience. The host and hostess were delightfully welcoming and warm. I also loved the ambiance of the resort, and that the beach was just a few minutes walk away. I highly recommend Jambo Guest Resort for anyone looking for a wonderful holiday in Watamu.

We stayed at Jambo House for a week in a double room. We had a pleasurable experience. The rooms were clean and nicely furnished, but very hot. The host, Michele and his family, are very welcoming and they made us feel really at home. We would definately stay there again.
