Brilliant service, friendly staff. Spent 5days at Temple point with my family and we didnt have enough of the place. The private beach, two swimming pools etc is more than what one could ask for when enjoying a sunny holiday at Watamu. They even threw in a surprise cake (and sang for me) on my birthday.....I will remember that forever!

great place, great service - very happy we chose this hotel when driving up from Mombabsa and wanting to stay in the Watamu area. We visited in June 2016 which was off-season but was good to see both swimming pools being maintained and enough staff around to help when needed

Try to get an upgrade to the beachfront huts. Absolutely lovely. Two storey villas with large bedrooms, thatched rooves and a beach view. It feels like an African village, but with a moderate amount of luxury. About a 60 second walk to the private (but small) beach. Two pools, beach activities, ping pong table, entertainment most nights and excellent, varied...

Great hotel. Really enjoyed the stay; with loads of sun time and helpful staff. The rooms are clean, private and spacious. The beds are nice. The food is also plentiful and the fruits are fresh. The hotel also provides free WiFi at all points. There is a beautiful gazebo overlooking the creek which is divine for romantic dinners.
