We agree with other reports about how the wonderful staff treat the guests, how great the food is, and the location could not be better but if this is one of your holidays of a life time please go outside the hotel grounds and visit the local people. Much is said about 'the beach boys' but these lads are great... More

After having a breathtaking safari around Kenya and Tanzania, we chose the Turtle Bay Beach Club as a resort to recover from the trip. The rooms were excellent - we had a Lamu room, which was clean, spacious, and with a nice view overlooking the pool and sea. The food was delicious and varied across the time we were there.... More

I discussed with him different certified scuba diving courses and I agreed to participate in... More

My family stayed at the Turtle Bay Beach Club after being on a 12 day safari. It was the perfect place to unwind. Our room was oceanfront with a stunning view. The waves were large enough for boogie boards but small enough that I could relax while my kids were in the water. The room had a good air conditioner... More

Bit late in writing my review as i went in January 2014, will try and keep this one short as I've said it all before. Traveled with a friend with Thomson Airlines on the new Dream Liner Aircraft, more leg room and better seats in economy class than the old Thomson long haul aircraft. Flight went quick and we were...

My Wife and I stayed at the Turtle Bay Beach Club in December 2013 as part of a Safari holiday. This place is amazing, the food is consistently good and varied, the staff cannot do enough to help. But the real thing that set this Hotel apart from other for me is the amazing work they do in the local... More
