This is a marvellous place for a holiday at the Kenyan coast. The price is very reasonable as everything is included once you are there, except for trips away from the hotel. I would particularly recommend the Snorkeling trip to the Marine reserve. All the equipment is provided and there are lots of fish there and beautiful coral formations. The... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights from 05th August 2016 and it was one of the most relaxing escapes we have had in a while. We really enjoyed our Ocean Front Room 15A (I think this is the best room in the entire resort) as it opens out to the ocean and was on the upper floor.... More

Dear Reviewer Thank you so very much for bringing the matter of cutlery handling to our attention . We shall set about rectifying this immediately as we would not like to think you were missing out on our wonderful food by dining elsewhere on a subsequent visit. We are glad that you are thinking of returning and we look forward... More

We stayed here for 5 nights after having a terrible start at the Reef Hotel, Nyali. The Hotel has two good sized pools, one of which is for adults only and is right on the beach. Some of the water sports are for free, which is always good. All Inclusive starts at 10am, and the waiters are always there happy... More

I loved this place for me & my daughter's visit. The rooms were great. The experience was great as they had a kids club that keeps the kids busy. The pancakes @ 4 p.m. gave me life. Great buffet choices but mostly English. Would have given a 5 star were it not for the lack of life guard in the... More

From the reception staff to the pool boy or the omelet chef, all so helpful and willing to share stories about watamu. I enjoyed the food and... More
