I was going to little beautiful Watamu to do two weeks volunteering at the Childrens Home Happy House. (Which I recommend anyone to visit and say hi - the children are always happy to meet new people!). The medina was like home - the staff were very friendly… the beach was beautiful… and they kindly upgraded me to the most... More

Very nicely done apartments, good places to eat, well kept and beautiful pool and STUNNING landscaping. I wish there where somewhere to sit on the beach but this didn't affect our stay, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Medina is quite simply put a world class destination. I have travelled all over the world and stayed in many, many places and Medina is right up there with the best of the best. The rooms are perfectly designed - clean, bright and spacious and lovely functional air-conditioning if you need it. Medina's location from the international and newly opened... More

I have stayed in Watamu on several locations and this is undoubtedly the best place to stay. The beach is incredible and the service and staff were incredibly obliging. Everything was immaculate from the staff to the beautiful bathrooms and huge beds. One of the highlights was the amazing spa but the food deserves a special recommendation as it was... More

Right from the start, the Medina Palms exceeds expectations. From the aiport pick up to the check out, there has not been anything i would even remotely consider a hick-up. The staff is brilliant, well trained and highly motivated, seen through the fact that even the pool attendant will notice that ones glass is almost empty and he will inform... More

Usually, we all fear that the pics on a site or brochure are misleading particularly if it is a first time visit. This place lived up to all my expectations. Serene, courture, amazing...I could think of so many more adjectives to descibe Medina Palms. The staff are exceptional and the experience is worth every penny

This place was simply divine. If I could stay here forever I would. My only issue was the food on the menu was a bit too "European" for my taste, but if you choose the a la carte menu or just make a personal request for a special dish you will be pleasantly surprised. The rooms were so good I... More

Just back from our honeymoon at the medina palms and the staff could not of been any more friendly and helpful right from the room maids up to the hotel manager. The resort was very quiet at the time but I am certain this would the case if it was busier. The rooms are fabulous, very clean and minimal with... More

What an amazing experience at this paradise location. The food was exquisite,the resort, the staff and everything about it was exceptional. I especially loved our apartment, the modern amenities and the attention to detail. The bar had great jazz and slow jams and I can't say enough good things. The managers Gilbert and Ralph went above and beyond to ensure... More

I have just returned from Medina with a couple of friends. They have the most amazing staff whether at the poolside, or bar or reception or at the water tribes office. The food was amazing but mostly sea food. I wish i could have spent more time. Its a place that i highly recommend to anyone that likes a posh... More
