I was here for my birthday weekend and these guys made me feel at home. They have very nice rooms, clean swimming pools and one of the best beaches I have ever been to and to add to that.. excellent customer service. The food, especially lunch, could use some improvement....other than that I can't wait to go back!!

Confirmed "Set amidst the turquoise Indian Ocean in the Watamu National Park, the 7 Islands Resort is a fusion of Arabic, Swahili and Indian design, handmade furniture and intricate brass lanterns". Immediate access to the white beaches of Watamu -- the Love Islands and their wildlife. The renowned Sea food Restaurant Papa Remo on the Beach was a fantastic dining...

The staff here pay too much attention to the Italians compared to other guests. They speak Italian to all guests too.Africans will definitely feel left out. Hated my 10 days stay and the food is horrible!! We were also asked to leave the room at 9 on our check out day so that some Italian guests could check in. Meanwhile...

This will soon turn out to be one of the top 5 hotels in Watamu. It has beautiful architecture and spacious, clean rooms, 3 pools, day beds & umbrellas by the beach. This beach is worlds apart from those in Mombasa because the beach boys here do not pester/harass you as is the case in Mombasa beaches. You can rest...

The hotel itself is really good, with nice rooms, 2 swimming pools, beach access...BUT the management and staff have a way to go. The Hotel is a FULL SMOKING hotel...guests can smoke anywhere they choose...be it the reception, lobby, or even restaurant...in these day and time .....how do families with little children spent their time inhaling passive smoke. Secondly, most...

The hotel is nicely designed and the furniture is Swahili simple with modern touches. The customer service is OK but they need to have more activities for guests and recommend to guests where to stay...that info wasn't received after asking. But all in all I had an awesome time with a friend celebrating a birthday and made the birthday dinner...

This beach resort is nice. I really loved the buffet food which was served. It was delicious and had varieties which caters for both vegetarians and non- vegetarians. The Rooms are spacious and clean. The other advantage is that the rooms are a few minutes walk to the beach. Highly recommended.

We were here in Oct'16. Its a huge property with a big swimming pool + 2 other small pools. Food has its ups and downs but chef accepts requests so you are sorted. Beach is accessible and you can walk up to the islands during low tide hours. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. For the price we paid it was...
