They have the most wonderful, cleanest, biggest beach in all of Watamu. The guys accepted us as walk-in group; chef was very considerate especially to the children while prepping lunch. We spent a day and had a wonderful time.

We lived a bit down the beach for a couple of weeks, but kept hiking up to this Italian hotel on multiple occations for food, Internet and afternoon beers. It has an awesome location on the beach, fantastic pools, very friendly staff and overall very high Quality on the food. Oh, and the fastest Internet in town ;) As non-italians it felt perhaps a bit TOO Italian (like not possible to get English menus, and just Italian people there;)... such minor details aside, it comes warmly recommend!

It was my first time in Watamu, attended a friends wedding which took place at this Resort. It is a great venue for a wedding, they did a really great job setting the place up and the food was really nice as well.

Rooms were good and clean. I'm not too sure about the history of the resort, but it felt a little outdated. If you are not too fussy, you will like the place. But if you are looking for a luxurious experience, you will be disappointed.

The beach is full of sea weeds, so we couldn't swim. But enjoyed a nice walk by the beach.

Overall experience was good, but could've been better.

Visiting Garoda Beach Hotel was a very exciting experience for me. It was my second time in Watamu and so it felt like my first time as I saw many different places for the very first time. We were welcomed well on arrival and showed to our rooms which had African wildlife portraits on the walls. The rooms were very clean and since I love a hot shower in the coast I was very happy to have a hot shower twice daily. The swimming pool was also big and could host many people at the same time I however did not like the fact that it was salty. The restaurant had a quaint feel to it and the food was extremely amazing based on the fact that it is an Italian hotel and although I have dined at Italian restaurants, the food here was on its own level. I also loved the fact that I could access cappuccino, mochachino among other hot beverages anytime of the day and cold, clean water from the water dispenser. The beach was also very beautiful offering breathtaking views and no wonder it was voted one of the best beaches in the world.

Room Tip: Choose a room closer to the reception area, swimming pool and bar/restaurant for ease of access.
