I had heard that Watamu has a large Italian contingent and this resort epitamises this. There was nothing wrong with the hotel and complex but it did not wow me. We stayed at the Aquarius hotel and did venture the the Mapango pool for a day; however we wanted a relaxing stay and there was a lot going on here.... More

First off it should be pointed out that "Aquarius" is actually 3 independent hotels connected by bridges and garden paths. Aquarius club is set at the back with Mapango (I think) positioned on the beach. (There was a hotel in between but I don't recall it's name). In short Aquarius club is the best of the 3. Whilst not on... More

Well aquarius is a mixed bag. We booked off booking.com and expected to be on the beach, so when we arrived and found that the site is divided (connected by a bridge/walkway) and that we were 250m back from the beach we were a little disappointed however this soon changed. We were shown to our room, by some surprisingly strong... More

After a long day I needed rest and relaxation and as soon as I walked into aquarius, the friendly smiles of the staff and the warmth in which they handled me gave me confidence in knowing that I was in good hands. The food was good, and the manager Matteo did everything in his power to make my stay more... More

The best part about the resort is the staff which is willing to give more than you can expect. Very humble, jovial, lively & cooperative. I visited the resort with my wife in July 2013 and we were the only Indian couple. Rest all were from Italy. When they came to know about it, they were more willing to give... More

I can say that the maasais on the beach speak more english than the staff of the hotel. So if you don't speak italian don;t go there. The food is ok, also if you're an italian. very few african dishes or even iternational. The major problem was with the sleep. You can't get any because it's always noisy. People come... More
