Wonderful beach, great food, highly professional and friendly service from the hotel staff and beautiful weather to just bask in the sun and relax. Easy access to the town and fun filled activities abound, whether it's visiting historical/tourist attractions, bike riding or just a lazy stroll around town. #TembeaKenya.

Jacaranda continues to be delightful. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who are wonderful. We must have visited over fifteen times and hope to continue to do so. The cottage by the beach is the perfect place to stay.

This time it was my plan to stay only 10 days. But at the end I was in Jacaranda 16 days. Beautiful weather! For the first time there was no GM and the atmosphere in the resort was great. Special thanks to Alice, Gabriel, Emily and Victor.
