NO Ebola, NO elshabab. Stunning beach, boats and pools. Excellent staff, service, food and facilities. The hotel was FULL, the staff coped very well. Great family and or romantic destination. Only wish the Kenyan roads were better to make the hotel more accessible from Nairobi ; 12 hours driving for 500km. Fly to malindi or Mombasa.

Love coming here. Its been a part of my growing up years as my parents have just kept coming back. Its definitely a family favourite! There's never really been a choice about where to go once we stayed the first time.

Stayed here earlier in year was so impressed booked to return for 6 weeks in March. Watamu is a lovely little place, very safe to go out and very friendly locals. Hotel staff so friendly and helpful, food good but do go outside the hotel, try a local bar and meet the locals who will always make you welcome.

We returned to Kenya for our fourth visit, we had to go via Addis Ababa then onto Mombasa international airport, we were very wary about travelling back to Kenya with all the warnings about trouble being ranted at every opportunity but however all was very relaxed and very comfortable. We lost one of our three luggage cases en route which... More

I travelled with family and friends at the beginning of December and it was so much fun the 6 days we were there felt like the blink of an eye. The children were kept busy by the lovely kids’ club crew with various fun activities that earned them points which at the end of our stay they were very excited... More
