We were very well taken care of. Food was amazing. The place is very clean. The pool is awesome and it's just a few minutes walk from the beach! Will definitely go back! Direction given to us by the front desk were perfect. Perfect for everyone...couples and families.

The villas are very comfortable and well managed Gives a unique privacy and warmth Very ideal for families, couples, business and group holidays. Swimming pool very strategically positioned. Proximity to the beach makes the place awesome.

My friends and I ( a party of 12) had called in advance for dinner reservation (early morning) as well as a birthday cake. We ordered for a chocolate cake with birthday inscriptions on it. Later that evening, we called for directions and confirmed the reservation. However, upon arrival, not table had been set for us and no one spoke... More

Breakfast buffet is very poor and there are TV's in the rooms yes but they are rigid in terms of changing the channels to suite visitor needs. The ambience is okay however the hotel is not beach facing. The staff are very friendly especially the maintenance guy, restaurant and housekeeping.

Stayed here for 4 days in what is essentially their low season; end of August. There were few other guests which, after the hustle and bustle of Nairobi and Mombasa, was the perfect retreat. The villas, which are actually a large room, washroom and balcony, were lovely. A four poster king size bed, beautiful carved wood wardrobes and a spacious... More

To be quite honest, we stayed here for a few days over the Christmas period as there wasn't anything else available in Watamu and we fancied a short beach break. The resort was adequate with a nice clean pool, pretty gardens and a lovely restaurant terrace overlooking the pool. Whilst eating at the restaurant in the evening, beware the of... More

We stayed at Villa Watamu Resort for three nights over New Years, the height of the high season. We decided to stay because there was literally no other affordable beach front accommodation available. The website is very nice and gives a good impression of the resort, but the picture of the beach with the loungers on it is a fake... More
