Other things to be aware of are: 1. The pool is great (although not visible from most apartments) 2. The beach is... More

Stayed at Blue Bay Cove for 9 nights following some research. We were not disappointed. The apartments live up to their web site portrayal and are surprisingly large. Excellent in every respect and much closer to village live than some of the all inclusive offers. Rosemary and her staff are excellent and make every effort to make one welcome. Just... More

Blue Bay Cove exceed our expectations! We had a huge room that was lovely. The location cannot be beat and we were able to easily walk in to town for food. The staff was incredible and accommodated all of our requests. If you are looking to stay at a non-inclusive resort in Watamu, then I highly recommend Blue Bay Cove

Spent a week at this lovely place in September and really had a great time. We enjoyed excellent service from friendly staff and the place itself was amazing. The views are beautiful and the apartments are very stylishly done. Definitely beats a hotel any day!

Awesome place to stay. Very well done apartments, clean, have an optional chef if you don't want to get tired cooking. The view of the ocean in unparalleled. On a cliff so not much beach space, although the beach is a 3 minutes walk away. Not that you will want to get out of the space provided. Nice pool. Great... More

Very clean, beautiful ambiance, furniture and peacefull. The sea views from P3 are picture perfect, with extraordinary Sunrise & Sunsets. Perfect for family, friends & social groups. Lots of space & lots to do around too. Going back in July & hopefully will spot Dolhins this time round. The photos on the site are genuine & seeing is believing.

I had a wonderful stay at Blue Bay; the apartments are very tastefully furnished with beautifully appointed furniture. The kitchen was fully fitted, and the breakfast basket was fantastic. Great views, and beautiful small beach. Highly recommended; will definitely visit again.
