6 of us stayed here last week in penthouse. Great accommodation. Perfect location in Watamu. Walking distance from restaurants or a short tuk-tuk drive away. Be prepared to eat Italian food in Watamu!

Went there with other couples and enjoyed every single bit about that place from the rooms to the view of the ocean. Walks inside the watamu village. The staff gave us personalized service and we're very polite and patient with us. Always willing to assist. This is a place to visit yet again.

The penthouse has amazing views of the sea and is a better option. On the negative... More

(12 individually owned apartments only) My family (we were 4 pax in total) found the Garden Suites very practical and chose Garden Suite 2 because of it's vicinity to the cove and it's 42" TV.with media player connected to a surround sound system. We were pleasantly surprised to note... More

It was a very nice, clean place. Everything was perfect except there was no housekeeping and even though Lillian (she was wonderful) promised to send the house keeper it seems she was reluctant to help with the dishes.we decided to wash ourselves

A perfect place for anyone who wishes to have a nice relaxed night playing games and chilling on the balcony with a cool breeze from the indian ocean. The night we stayed had a full moon and clear skies so we had a really nice view from the top floor balcony.

My friends and I spent 3 nights at Blue Bay Cove (BBC) from 6th to 9th March 2015 and we had quite a wonderful time. There were however a few issues we weren't too pleased with: 1. The room cleaning lady said she was only authorised to issue one small bar of cussons soap to each room for the duration... More

I stayed here with my friends when they visited Kenya. The place is huge and so reasonable in price. We had so many more rooms than we needed. I loved the decoration and the apartment felt safe and secure. Although the location is a little outside the centre of Watamu there is plenty of places to eat nearby and the... More
