A chill home

Diani Beach, Kenya

This place is in a greeny scenary. Trees as soon as you pass the gate, after reception and on your way to the rooms. Beautiful birds are attracted to the long fish pond and the beach is beautiful. I have been here before and I saw some improvement so keep it up. The staff were dedicated to ensure hygiene is on point. The reception team and security very helpful. The food is great. Maybe more focus on the rooms though but it's not a complain, I enjoyed my stay even in the rain.

Excellent Turtle Bay Beach Resort (TBBR)

Mombasa, Kenya

The hotel had an excellent ambience, nature all around and the staff were courteous, warm and welcoming. A nice place to relax with family. I was there in May 2018 though on business but intend to visit soon with my family. The standards have been maintained over the years.
