Went to Turtle Bay for the first time in September for 2 weeks but it definitely will not be our last visit. We cannot rate this hotel high enough. The staff are superb and cannot do enough for you. Our cleaner was just great. Even the people that work on the beach are brilliant. We also went on safari to Tsavo East and stayed at Ashnil Aruba and all we can say is WOW 👌

We had a wonderful two-week holiday at TTBC, with two nights out in the middle to go on Safari in the Masai Mara. That was a simply amazing trip. The rest of our time was spent at the hotel, which we love. Our room was overlooking the Ocean, and we could hear the sound of the waves at night. The room itself was comfortable, with everything we needed, including a hairdryer and plenty of coathangers. There are mosquito nets to potect you at night, though I didn't see any mosquitoes in the bedroom. The bathroom is fine, with a bath, and a separate shower unit, and the water is always nice and hot. The staff in the hotel are simply fantastic. They are friendly, helpful, and simply can't do enough for you. They make you feel very special, and it is they in turn who make the place so special. The food is delicious, with plenty of choice, and there is always an abundance of fresh tropicl fruit available. I ate well and felt very healthy! The grounds of the hotel are beautifully kept, and the swimming pools are great. We used the Quiet Pool, and enjoyed the peace, and the view of the Ocean beyond. All in all we can't wait to go back, and thank you to everyone who made our stay so memorable.

I took my family on an Africa trip for the month of March with TWENDE DEVELOPMENT and TRAVEL. The Itinerary took us here first to acclimatize for a few days (I strongly recommend to do this if from North America). Staff was amazing. Meals were great. Rooms are decent. Bathrooms & Showers aren't the greatest. Pool side and Beach was perfect to chill and explore a little. Massage was amazing and I booked an hour session each day we were there. Very safe for kids as Security & Masai Warriors were always visible. If we needed anything, we asked DAN at TWENDE DEVELOPMENT & TRAVEL and he made it happen.

We're back once again at Turtle Bay after a 5-year break, and we were slightly apprehensive that the pandemic would've taken its toll on this lovely place. However, against all odds, they have managed to keep the charm the hotel always had. As many others have said, the staff make this stay special. Not just the staff we've seen many times before, but the trainees who are currently gaining valuable experience and doing a fantastic job. If you're looking for a break on a beautiful piece of coastline, with plenty to do, see, eat, drink, and buy, you'll not be disappointed. The trips are plentiful, both with the hotel or venturing out to the beach or the village to meet the friendly locals. A smile and polite manner goes a long way. You can book a safari if you wish before you visit, or you can book something while you're here. We're already trying to plan our next trip here, and we haven't even left yet.

The all inclusive is a very good deal,they are generous with bottled water in the rooms and that is a huge plus.The extended check out was awesome,it was a pleasant surprise.The children are very happy maybe a little more indulgence at the kids park to keep various age groups engaged.Overall they score way up as a facility.I am definitely going back to turtle bay.

Once more back to our much loved Turtle Bay Beach Club in Watamu, Kenya. My wife and I have speny many happ years in this hotel with all our friends (known as staff ). There is so much to see and do in this area of Kenya and TBBC is the perfect place to start. You will find the people here, both in the hotel and the locals outside, very friendly and welcoming. It is a very safe are with some great places to eat out. The seafood here is particularly good with prices just great. Getting here is easy, check out Kenya Airways or Ethiopian Airways.

After a gap of 10 years my wife and I decided to go back to TBBC , we were a bit apprehensive after reding some poor reviews on Trip Advisor but after just a few minutes we felt so at home and made very welcome , this is down to the staff that we met Ratabu,Masha, Khamish and Kedenge to name but a few but the one who stands out the most was Trainee Kombe , even though he has been at TBBC for less than a year he has the ethos of TBBC that we remembered from our previous 3 visits. He is the main reason that we have booked again to come with our son and his partner in September and we hope that Kombe will still be there. The food is good , if you don't find something on the menu to your taste you can go for a pizza or dine early on the great choice of snacks . Our lamu room looked out onto the pool and was kept spotless everyday by our cleaner (great job) . This is not a 4 - 5 star hotel set at european standards , this is a small hotel in Africa where if you immerse yourself in the Kenyan culture you will leave a better person. Thank you TBBC for a wonderful 2 weeks and see you in September
