Everything one can dream off for a romantic dinner out in Kenya! Great food (we had the mixed grill), lovely atmosphere, right on the beach. Staff is really nice and do their best to make you feel comfortable. One of our best dining expereinces in Watamu!

I can say that the maasais on the beach speak more english than the staff of the hotel. So if you don't speak italian don;t go there. The food is ok, also if you're an italian. very few african dishes or even iternational. The major problem was with the sleep. You can't get any because it's always noisy. People come... More

Italian mass tourism at its worse, you feel like you are in the outskirts of Rome. We were moved around by the owner and ended up in the staff quarters over the electric generator. the owners were so rude. What a shame! The location is stunning, the beach is wonderful. The staff are all locals who have been trained to... More
