I stayed at this paradise on 27.02.2016 for 2 nights. The entire stay was something I will cherish for a long time. First, I was warmly received at the gate and funny enough, the first guy I met knew my name. I asked him how comes he knew me and he said "this is what we do" and I told...

wonderful staff, beautiful scenery with the white sandy beaches a few metres from the rooms, spacious rooms with great A/C. long distance to cover by road from Mombasa, 1 1/2 hours (crazy!), but less than an hour from Malindi airport. The food was amazing, 3 different pools to swim in that looked great! I would love to go back here...

I was booked at Jacaranda Beach Resort from 31st December 2015 to 3rd January 2016 and to be honest, I wished I had saved up a little more to enable me stay at Hemmingways or any of the other 5 Star hotels in Watamu...which is what I will do next time. I booked my accommodation via Bonfire Adventures who assured...

There are of course undoubtful advantages like seafront room truly by the beach and warm ocean. The room was typically suahili furnished, clean and comfortable. The list od disadvsntages is much longer and probably attributable to extreme savings the owner is implementing. Thee is no bottled water in rooms in alll inclusive formula which is weird when tap water is...

Not you boutique hotel style kind of thing.... Just a big resort, full of Italians. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful and they made our stay pleasant. They managed to respond positively to my request to have the last breakfast, on our wedding anniversary day, on the little island in the pool, and they sung on our daughter's...

We checked into this resort for the Christmas holidays on their all inclusive package. The resort has very nyce facilities, beautiful grounds and a lovely beach. But that is as far as it goes. Everything else about this resort is horrible. We arrived a day late and the staff at the reception had difficulties deciding how to handle our case....

I have been here for Christmas holidays, an amazing experience! The hotel has such a beautiful garden and the beach is fantastic. Very friendly staff, both the Italians and the Kenyans, they are all doing their best to make the people enjoy their holiday. It is not easy to find such a caring staff.

Spent Christmas here with my family and it was a superb experience. The staff were so friendly and the view is beautiful. The rooms were clean and we did not experience anything that would make us not go back. I totally recommend this hotel and I look forward to going back. Mosquito repellent is a must have though!

Dear Daud, thanks for you review. Actually criticism could be helpful to improve our service but e really dont understand what was your problem. The only Italian staff relating with guests is our Reception Chief and two of the nexting resort animation team ,and you dont raise one single detaile issue about rudeness , bad manners.
