Had a five day vacation here with my family (2 families) this August 2016. The service staff are great and one Phyllis has super customer relations but the management is failing them. With their greatest reviews being a family friendly hotel, please be warned that they have two huge pools and no lifeguard, they have signs at the pool. We... More

I hav been to this beach hotel thrice. My first visit prompted the second and the second prompted the third. It is indeed a paradise with a stretch of white sandy beach with clean see- through waters and amazingly designed hotel rooms. I really enjoyed my stay in all 3 occasions and recommend it to everyone with second thoughts about... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my one week break. Turtle bay is family oriented ,very good if you have kids. Meals all inclusive though can do better on variety especially breakfast. We enjoyed pancakes at 4pm and tea time anytime of the day. Rooms are very spacious, shower in the rooms too which is a plus for me.

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

Most terrible services ever. We went for a day with my hubby, his mother and our 2 children (6 years and 5 months). I personnally spent most of the afternoon doing henna and other beauty treatment as it was our main reason to go there. Sabrina's team is the best! Keep it up! The hotel has a policy of "chasing"...

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
