The only place we keep going back to, our third visit and planning a fourth; the staff are very special all very helpful and always smiling, nothing is too much trouble for them. A great place to relax.

Flew into Malindi from Nairobi after 6 days safari (Flights were delayed each way though) for a relaxing 7 days by the beach in February. Picked up by Hotel bus on time and transferred to Watamu. Easy check-in at hotel and had organised a beachfront room which proved to be excellent as it was away from the main complex where...

Dear Reviewer Thank you for your very comprehensive resume of your stay with us and the various activities and outings that you enjoyed. The coast really is a great place to unwind after a hectic safari but there is also a lot to do if you wish to do so. Kind regards Damian GM

I only had lunch at the hotel, therefore it came as a package of buffet lunch, swimming, beach access and complimentary soft drinks. I enjoyed the lunch. Great variety from meat lovers to vegetarians, sweet-tooth to healthy fans, friendly staff and good service. I was lucky to be there during the maasai market day that brought fun and dance entertainment....

a good hotel to go to if you like deep sea fishing and deep sea diving. lots of activities arranged if it is what you want, lack of different night time entertainments, the beach has been eroded by the sea so don't expect the beach as seen on their adverts, great advantage there are no T.V 's in the rooms

Dear Reviewer Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences on your recent stay at the hotel. Whilst there has been a certain amount of erosion on the front we still have nice sandy strip that is within our property and affords our guests undisturbed sunbathing on the white sand of Turtle Bay. Kind regards Damian Davies GM

Our sea view room was always beautifully clean. We went out on various trips and always felt very safe both in and outside the hotel.The...

We spent a wonderful 7 nights at Turtle Bay and loved every minute. It was welcoming, clean, comfortable, had amazing views, with lots to do. The staff were, without exception, very friendly and helpful. We had a Lamu room which we would definitely recommend - as near the beach and quiet pool as possible. We did three snorkelling trips to...

This was our 6th visit to Turtle Bay and I just want to reassure everyone that it was as good if not better than ever.

With the quiet pool it is easy to avoid the younger crowds when your holiday overlaps a school holiday period and the Lamu rooms you stayed in are quieter, as a rule, than other parts of...
