We stayed here for a week on the beach during a 3 week trip to Kenya. On arrival we did feel slightly out of place as this is definitely a resort for repeat visitors who are a little older than we were!

I was here with my family before Christmas and I couldnt fault the place. Great kids entertainment/camps. very easy place to keep and eye on the kids in the pool if you wanted to relax and have a few drinks. Lovely beach a hundred metres away.

We did our first trip to Africa in August, to celebrate a dear friends'wedding in Watamu. TBBC was recommended by the wedding party and no wonder why! We stayed two weeks and couldn't have been happier. The rooms are modest but very clean and the service is outstanding. The staff knew our names from the first day and we were... More

Turtle Bay Beach Club is a great place to reconnect as family - the beaches are beautiful, the meals are good, the staff is polite and friendly, and the rooms are comfortable. We had a great time, in a lovely environment that's really conducive to rest and absolute relaxation.

The staff are awesome, service one of the best have had so far. Great place for family due to many activities lined up for children as well as adults. Just work on the house keeping a bit on beddings, bedcovers looking abit tired.

From the moment we arrived to moment we left, the staff at Turtle Bay made us all feel welcome and relaxed. The way in which the staff manage to give everyone the same personal touch to make your holiday feel like you are the only ones being cared for was fantastic. The children absolutely loved it and the fact that... More

Turtle Bay is an amazing hotel and this is down to the people not just the fact that it is in the most beautiful location on the Kenyan coast. The staff are the most friendly in the world and go out of their way to make your holiday the best it can possibly be. Nothing is too much trouble. I... More

Nicely tucked away from the main road in a strategic location by the beach, nice setting. The room was a little "old" the beddings were not all that inviting, bathroom ok. The reception staff were not very knowledgable about many things...e.g. I asked for the latest time to check out and the receptionist said she didn't know and would get... More

This was supposed to be a week of relaxation after visiting elsewhere in Kenya for safari. I had been recommended this hotel by several other folks who like me are birders. So for me the proximity of Arabuko-Sokoke Forest was one of the reasons we picked this hotel. For me then it ticked a few boxes, as I was able... More
