I stayed here with my friends when they visited Kenya. The place is huge and so reasonable in price. We had so many more rooms than we needed. I loved the decoration and the apartment felt safe and secure. Although the location is a little outside the centre of Watamu there is plenty of places to eat nearby and the...

My daughter and i visited Watamu in August. Though we were not staying at Blue Bay Cove, we got an invitation for lunch on a Sunday. The hotel is quite homely. The food was great...Italian Cuisine like i have never encountered before. I loved the setting of the rooms, pool, bar, dinning, lounge...all revolving around the same area. What touched...

My husband and I visited in January 2012 with our 4 month old. The apartment was amazing, spacious and well furnished. We requested a cook who made us some awesome seafood. The only problem was that it is situated on a cliff, the views are fantastic but there's a small rocky beach, can't even call it a beach. Overall the...

I actually won two nights at a raffle and decided to spend one more. We had a spacious, well appointed apartment with a beautiful view. Nice pool as well. It is a nice place but it could be great without much effort. Since many just spend a few days it would be good if they supplied basic stuff like salt,...

We were received warmly and shown around the property (took a little too long for the tour, not necessary), nice pool, great interior design, towels were not yet in the rooms for us, and although we were in there for only 1 night, we were expected to provide our own garbage bag for the kitchen, thought that was odd. views...

Superb location - provided the privacy we needed. The Penthouse is lovely - quite spacious with to-die for views of the ocean. Also very well equipped with kitchen ware. Lesson for next time - carry own cook:-)

This was family holiday with our mid sixties parents, teens, a group of eight. The staff were friendly and welcoming. Online payment worked well. We found initial shopping and meal had been done as per agreement. Apartments beautifully furnished. We had a great cook who was punctual and easy to work with. Shops are close by and locals friendly and...

Located near the centre of Watamu and near the beach there are the very nice apartments of Blue Bay Cove. We stayed in the Junior Apartment ground floor level. The apartment has a spacious living and dining and a well equipped kitchen (an excellent cook is available). Downstairs are two nice big bedrooms and solar heated water for the bathrooms.

Blue bay cove is a warm homely place excellent facilities and staff alike. Of the two apartments offered i prefer the penthouse suite's space and that you can have a large group stay with you... I have returned twice(second visit was with family members)since my initial visit and it is now my "home away from home". I would recommend this...
