"Ideal for rest and relaxation"
Our upper floor room was lovely. Spacious, very good bathroom and an excellent balcony overlooking the beach/sea. The room had a/c and a fan - at night the fan was perfect for keeping the room comfortable. (Fans can sometimes be noisy but this one could barely be heard). The bed was fine for lovers of firm mattresses.
Food at the resort was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed all of our meals. Waterlovers prides itself on serving freshly prepared food and therefore request that guests order dinner after breakfast - which wasn't a problem to do. At lunch time we ate off their extensive snack menu and accepted that there would be a 30mins+ wait after ordering.
All of the staff were very welcoming and friendly and it is a place that we would happily return to in the future.
Two minor issues: you are given your "extras" bill to sign at breakfast for the previous day. The first three days, our bill was wrong. This was easily sorted, but some people might have found it annoying. Secondly, we knew there would be a surcharge for paying the final bill by credit card. However, although everything is initially charged in Kenyan shillings, you can only pay in shillings with cash. Card transactions are converted to either Euros or Dollars, thus incurring more charges." See all these reviews: 13n in Kenya
"Water Lovers Beach Resort review"
We particularly enjoyed kayaking out to the reef at low tide, and borrowing masks and snorkels to explore beneath the waves. The fish life here isn't plentiful, but it's there to be found if you're prepared to look.
There's no chance of going hungry, either, with an exceptionally good breakfast selection and a varied dinner menu that includes a catch of the day and plenty of vegetarian/vegan options." See all these reviews: 8n in Kenya
