I actually won two nights at a raffle and decided to spend one more. We had a spacious, well appointed apartment with a beautiful view. Nice pool as well. It is a nice place but it could be great without much effort. Since many just spend a few days it would be good if they supplied basic stuff like salt,... More

We were received warmly and shown around the property (took a little too long for the tour, not necessary), nice pool, great interior design, towels were not yet in the rooms for us, and although we were in there for only 1 night, we were expected to provide our own garbage bag for the kitchen, thought that was odd. views...

Superb location - provided the privacy we needed. The Penthouse is lovely - quite spacious with to-die for views of the ocean. Also very well equipped with kitchen ware. Lesson for next time - carry own cook:-)

This was family holiday with our mid sixties parents, teens, a group of eight. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Online payment worked well. We found initial shopping and meal had been done as per agreement. Apartments beautifully furnished. We had a great cook who was punctual and easy to work with. Shops are close by and locals friendly and... More

Located near the centre of Watamu and near the beach there are the very nice apartments of Blue Bay Cove. We stayed in the Junior Apartment ground floor level. The apartment has a spacious living and dining and a well equipped kitchen (an excellent cook is available). Downstairs are two nice big bedrooms and solar heated water for the bathrooms.

Blue bay cove is a warm homely place excellent facilities and staff alike. Of the two apartments offered i prefer the penthouse suite's space and that you can have a large group stay with you... I have returned twice(second visit was with family members)since my initial visit and it is now my "home away from home". I would recommend this... More

Blue bay cove apartments are an exceptional facility. The two bedroom suit at the garden level is actually my favorite. The balcony apartments are lovely but the upstairs sitting room layouts are a bit cramped. The pool is perfect for dips and sheltered from the wind, and the apartments location on the cliff provides varied landscapes. The cliff view and... More

Overall, well worth a visit. Apartments (the 3 bedroom ones at least) are great with plenty space for a family of 5 or 6. Air con in rooms is a treat but could do with same in lounge. Other things to be aware of are: 1. The pool is great (although not visible from most apartments) 2. The beach is... More

Stayed at Blue Bay Cove for 9 nights following some research. We were not disappointed. The apartments live up to their web site portrayal and are surprisingly large. Excellent in every respect and much closer to village live than some of the all inclusive offers. Rosemary and her staff are excellent and make every effort to make one welcome. Just... More

Blue Bay Cove exceed our expectations! We had a huge room that was lovely. The location cannot be beat and we were able to easily walk in to town for food. The staff was incredible and accommodated all of our requests. If you are looking to stay at a non-inclusive resort in Watamu, then I highly recommend Blue Bay Cove
