We Really enjoyed our stay, staff were very friendly & helpful, great sitting on the beach chilling, the waiters soon worked out my drinking speed and were almost spot on in asking if I needed a refill. Unfortunately we had a long Safari first 10 days so only had a chance for four days here so probably did not get... More

Don't believe what you read in the press and UK media. I am here right now and it is perfectly safe. Watamu is still a little corner of paradise to me so if you intended to come to Turtle Bay. Please do so you will not be disappointed. Don't use a travel agent just book direct with the hotel and... More

Excellent welcome staff, quite clean environment ideal for relaxation, choice of clean different rooms for accommodation, amiable restaurant and room service staff. However, although the hotel design is for relaxation and therefore did not make provision for TV in the rooms, now in this 21century we are, even when holidaying, in need of knowing what's happening in the world around...

We have just stayed at Turtle Bay for the second time and can not recommend it enough. Rooms are simply and very clean. The staff can not do enough for you - always polite and respectful. Ignore what the British Government say as nothing has changed in Kenya. This is still a fantastic and safe country to visit. The hotel... More

We stayed at Turtle Bay in August with our daughter and two small grandchildren aged 2 and 4. Many people at home were worried about security in Kenya but we have been there many times and knew that Watamu would be safe. It was perfect in every way. Turtle Bay is very well managed with delightful and helpful staff in... More

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! It took us about half a day to get over ourselves, then throw ourselves into beach games, table... More

This is a great family hotel. Lots of activities for children. The food is good and the staff was warm and welcoming. The rooms are simple and clean. Turtle Bay is right on the beach which we loved! Overall, we had a wonderful holiday!

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
