I wanted to stay here because of the mix of staying in town while having the option to go to the beach. I was really impressed with so many things about this place - the decor, the cleanliness, the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners and staff, the security, the efficiency of the transportation, the food.... everything!
My friend and I just finished our stay there (April 20-23) in what is called "the rainy season." Yes, it did rain, but I think it amounted to only a few showers over the four days we were there. Otherwise, it was hot and sunny. The heat was a bit strong at times, but I couldn't complain as our visits to the beach club and dips in the hotel's pool cooled me down. Do not let the rainy season deter you from visiting Lamu! It was a pleasure to avoid the crowds of the high season, and an immense joy to have the beach all to ourselves!
Even if you do not plan to stay at Lamu House, I would still recommend taking a trip over to the beach club for their Sunday lunch (we were served a multi-course meal with calamari, prawns and fish). The Moonrise restaurant is also a beautifully cozy spot (thumbs up for the breakfasts, chicken korma, and amazing chocolate mousse!).
