A gentleman called nemo operates on the beach and is great for trips and safaris. Have been on 4 or 5 different trips with him, he is a great guy very reliable and ensures every trip is magical woul recommend on price as always cheaper than the hotel and the holiday reps.

This hotel is in its own beautify grounds on the beach in the Kenyian National Marine park. The rooms are basic but clean. The bed is comfortable but the bathroom looked a little grubby with cracked tiling and DIY repairs quite obvious. They do have soap and shower gel in the shower. The air con was ok but getting on...

We are repeaters, this year will be our 11th return. Repeaters do NOT get any special service from the staff nor would we want it. It's a simple case that those lovely people have great memories for faces. The guest turnover in any hotel over 50 - 52 weeks a year is huge and most of us are only there...

My children and I spent our easter holiday in this wonderful hotel. The hotel is within the marine park which guarantees security of guests. The all inclusive package and fun activities kept us busy throughout. This is a wonderful place for anyone who wants relaxation. Excellent service, food and drinks. The hotel may consider seperating smoking and non smoking blocks...

We stayed at the TBBC last September, as part of our honeymoon. Tired and hot after a week's safari, flight and long drive from Mombassa (approx 2.5 hrs), we arrived to a cool towel and drink and a warm welcome from the reception staff. As it was our honeymoon we asked for an upgrade and got one to one of...

Having read the recent reviews I would like to say I've been to Turtle Bay 6 times & hope to return later this year. I have to say I've never noticed repeaters getting better treatment, myself included. Could it just be that the staff have got to know repeaters. I have to agree with one review about the beach boys,...

Just returned from my third visit to Turtle Bay. Does this mean Im a 'Returner' which so many people seem to complain about? ;) I booked this hotel through a guy there called Jack by email, he was very helpful with very quick replies throughout the booking process. We flew to Malindi so we only had the 20minute airport transfer...
