      The hotel is quite out of civilization in Watamu but therefore the beach is not overcrowded. The staff is very friendly, the restaurant is good, the buffet has a good selection and is tasty! The hotel has a lot of Italian influence as usual in that part of Watamu and I like that. The rooms are very good, comfortable and clean! We went at the very end of the season so theyre already starting their improvements/constructions which was a little disturbing sometimes.

      The experience was quite nice and the location very relaxing. There is a pool right outside the dining area, a short walk to the beach that is clean and less invaded making it ideal for your morning walks and evening sundowners. On new years eve, there was a beach party that went on till early morning, crowing our stay here. The majority of the guest are Italians as is with this part of Kenya-Watamu thus most staff can fluently speak Italian.

      We were at this hotel for 12 days over new year eve with my boyfriend and my parents. The hotel was quite ok, room very easy, no furniture but clean. Problem was the bathroom, the toilet didn t smell good and the towels smelt really awfull... I prefered to use my own towels. Beach was always full of black to try to sell you even your mother for good price.. Food - it didn t look bad, fruits was really good BUT all family brought from there very big healthy problems of sallmonela. I was always carefur of what I ate but even that it wasn t enought...I was sick for one month after the vacation and had problems with my stomach. Otherwise price for the hotel was really really cheap so except the food was all good and I really loved to visit the real Africa, safari and the villages. It was really great experience!

      I Had a wonderful time at this resort. From the location of the place, to the welcome from all the staff. Our room was near one of the many swimming pools and we had nice beach view. The rooms were very comfortable and kept clean always and the grounds well maintained by the Staff Special thank you to Ambrose(Support staff) Pietro(Reservations)Rehema(housekeeping and Allan((pub) and all the friendly staff God Bless you all.

      The location, views, beach and staff here all deserve 5 stars. The staff was very friendly and welcoming and our room was great both in comfort and its location to the beach. However, the food and all inclusive programs are lacking. We were offered an upgrade to all inclusive at check in which would include alcoholic drinks which we went for at 1000ksh per person per day. What they neglected to tell us was that it only included a few cocktails made using the cheapest of liquor and Tusker beer on tap and only available from the main bar which made it a pain if we were on the beach. Drinks were also only served in small cups of which 5 would have equaled one beer. The food was only ok except for the odd item which was quite good. By far the best item was the grilled beef the first night at the resort. By far the best meals we had were with the guys on the beach we booked our deep sea fishing trip with. They cooked the fish we caught for dinner with us and got up early the next day to get fresh octopus and fish to cook us lunch. The fishing trip was great value as well. If youre staying here make sure to track down Captain Jimmy, Captain Nandi and Captain Munga on the beach. They were honest guys who treated us well and gave us our best meals while in Watamu. The restaurant they cook at is right across the road from the resort and a bottle of beer is 1/3 the price there as compared to the resort. Transfer from Malindi airport is easy as I know a Tuk Tuk driver in Malindi who picked us up and took us to the resort and brought us back to the airport. Katana is a reliable guy and trustworthy. If you are headed here and want his details let me know. Id stay at Jacaranda again, but with a room only package. Bring your own beer/liquor to the room and get your meals and bar drinks from the locals outside the resort. You can feel good about supporting the local businesses that way as well.
