Pros: Adult swimming pool as a quiet option to the main children-filled pool; separate pizza restaurant (included in all-inclusive) as an option to the main buffet; plentiful options at main buffet; delicious grilled meat; lots of activity options; free kayak usage; clean and spacious rooms Cons: The staff are not terribly friendly or helpful; it takes forever to get drinks...

Didn't stay with these guys but we booked a snorkelling tour of Watamu National park with them. We booked the tour the night before and they accepted us with no hassles onto the tour. It was a great experience with great service.

We have been to this hotel twice now and it is fantastic for families. The rooms are spacious and clean and the facilities are super for all the families. The buffet meals are plentiful for hungry teenagers and the activities are never ending, all a must when travelling with a teenage family. The private beach area is beautiful and the... More

What a lovely hotel the staff so welcoming and helpful always smiling faces. The rooms excellent in all aspects. The beach beautiful with lovely sand. A few beach sellers trying to make a living and sometimes very pushy but they're entitled to live as best they can. Almost constant warm wind keeping you cool under the canopy of Palm trees.... More

Our 1st visit to TBBC with friends who have been several times before. Other reviews say plenty about the lovely staff and good points about the Hotel and surroundings which lived upto and beyond all expectations. We can't wait to return.

We have just returned for our second visit to TBBC after a period of 8 years. The hotel has not changed from its very good/very friendly resort standards that we remembered. The friendly staff are one of the hotels best assets, and would bend over backwards to help. We found that the lunches in the buffet were better than the... More

Don't be put off by the 3 1/2 to 4 star rating of this hotel. Well deserving of a 4 star. Food was freshly prepared, a wide variety to suit all tastes - far superior to the usual all inclusive fodder. Bananas to die for!!!! Staff were attentive, but not pushy. All genuinely friendly. We only used the main pool,... More
