We stayed at Turtle Bay in August 2012 but I have been meaning to write this review since. The hotel has really pleasant and accommodating staff who go out of their way to assist you. The rooms are lovely!! Room number 33, Ocean Facing is probably the best. There's plenty to do also around the beach or you could just...

I've meant to come on here and do a review of turtle bay for a while. I am currently sitting in a 5 star hotel in the Caribbean and thinking to myself that turtle bay could teach this place a thing or two about service. TBBC is not a luxurious hotel but what it does, it does well. No frozen...

The Safari experience was one not to be missed and recommended by close friends who had been a number of times before. They recommended Turtle Bay as our base and it was a perfect choice, the...

We've just returned from a week's stay at Turtle Bay and had an asolutely brilliant week! We were a bit worried after the high of a week's safari in the Serengeti and Ngorogoro crater that the week on the beach would be a bit of a let down - nothing could be further from the truth. We never had a...

Having visited Watamu several times since 2009 Turtle Bay is the place for us, the hotel is clean the rooms are excellent and the staff are always there to help. We ate out a lot but, when we stopped at the hotel to eat the food was great. Will most certainly be back soon. Thanks Daimion
