Staying with Juri and Kylie was superb. Absolutely loved my time at Eco Lodge. It is an inexpensive place to stay but in no way a 'budget' hotel. All the food is homemade and a pleasant place to spend your time.

We loved the Ecolodge! It has a very relaxed atmosphere, very comfortable and clean rooms a nice swimming pool, and a lovely restaurant area on a veranda.
The owners, Kylie and Juri, were so friendly and helpful and also the staff made us feel very welcome and at home. They all helped us with every question or wish that came up.
The absolute extra for our stay there, was the food: it's extraordinary! Breakfast comes with so many home-made ingredients, like fresh bread, mango jam, cream cheese, yoghurt, granola, and many more - absolutely delicious! Also the dinner menue was everytime amazing.
The location is also very good. With a boda ride it's just about five minutes to the beach. But you can also stay away from the busy touristy places in the center of Watamu, and enjoy the quiet and repose at the pool.
We really enjoyed our stay here and can highly recommend this place. We will definitely come back one day! :)

Price/Quality is very very good! If you are looking for a second home to stay in Watamu, look no further!

Me and my friend stayed here from January 23 through January 28 and absolutely loved it & the value for money is astonishing!! The owners are very sweet and kind, and you can tell that they put their heart and soul into the business. I am vegan and my friend is vegetarian and the chefs did great work catering to our needs! The food was extremely delicious... The rooms were absolutely beautiful and we felt right at home. Another highlight of the trip was the excellent pool, which was very refreshing in the hot temperatures. I highly recommend the Echo Villas Watamu to anybody traveling to this area - we will be back for sure!

I was all so excited about my weekend getaway with my squad. We didnt know what to expect at Eco Jua Bahari,until we were met by the smiling duo at the gate(Matlidah and Valentina). The Lodge is homely,serene and on getting there you forget about all your week's hustle. The customer service,food,the rooms and the pool are nothing but perfect. The rates are way too budget for all this overwhelming goodness. I am coming back Matlidah,thank you for having us.

What i Can Say, it's about Worm Welcoming From Matilda & Valentina...they Were Very Happy to Welcome us at Eco Lodge Jua Bahari. After a Long Safari From Nairobi to Watamu, we Were Given a Small Briefing about the Place before We Checked in at Our Rooms.
The Place itself, was Very Cool, No Noise From the Neighbors Surrounding the Place and the Staffs Were Very Friendly. The Rooms Were in Double and Tripple,the Option Was Only For You to Decide. the Food Was Delicious, From Sea Food, Italian Food and African, You were Able to get any Variety You Will need when You are Around.
The Compound was Always Clean, the Swimming Pool was Indoor...and You Can Get a Chance to Swim Anytime You want...And from the Main Road to Eco Bahari Lodge,it's about 100-200 Meters Away..and it's a Walking Distance.the Rooms were Well Arranged.As you Know, Watamu is Always Hot, You Can Take a Public Transport( Tuk Tuk) to Go and Visit the Beach...they are Always Available anytime You Will need them, And if You Have Any Difficulty, Always Feel Free to Chat with the Management, they will Always help You out. this is a Place i Must Visit again Very Soon. Thank You Eco Lodge Jua Bahari Management.
