We stayed at hotel watamu beach club and our holiday was wonderful from stat to finish, The staff were all very helpful and accommodation although basic was very clean
We had read the reviews of the Watamu Beach Club Hotel and so arrived in Mombasa with a certain sense of trepidation.
We had also read the reports about the condition of the road from Mombasa to Watamu and so this was no surprise.
On arrival at the hotel we received a warm welcome and were shown to our room which, although basic, was clean and remained so throughout our stay, with a continuous supply of hot water and fully functioning air conditioning.
The staff at Watamu Beach; the guys looking after the grounds, cleaning the rooms, serving behind the bars, waiting or serving in the restaurant were all friendly, cheerful and will do anything to help you.
If you are happy with their service please do reward them appropriately, as I’m not sure ASC do.
In summary, we only booked our holiday 10 days before we arrived and so got a good deal and, given the price we paid, have no complaints about value for money, which I think we may have had, had we paid full price.
As previously mentioned, the food is not great, but you won’t go hungry.
If you book a standard room and arrive at Watamu Beach hotel expecting European 3/4-star accommodation you will be disappointed, although some were being refurbished while were there.
Some people we met on the holiday had booked a suite, and if you can afford the extra they seem worthwhile, as the we saw was of a much higher standard
