Jacaranda beach resort is notably very well run, the facilities were amazing from the pools to the tennis court, and the gym too. The staff were kind and very friendly. They responded fast when we needed something and didn't hesitate to help when we looked stranded or a little confused. The food was great, delicious choices and a wide range....

For the pool, the management...

wonderful staff, beautiful scenery with the white sandy beaches a few metres from the rooms, spacious rooms with great A/C. long distance to cover by road from Mombasa, 1 1/2 hours (crazy!), but less than an hour from Malindi airport. The food was amazing, 3 different pools to swim in that looked great! I would love to go back here...

I was booked at Jacaranda Beach Resort from 31st December 2015 to 3rd January 2016 and to be honest, I wished I had saved up a little more to enable me stay at Hemmingways or any of the other 5 Star hotels in Watamu...which is what I will do next time.
