Overall, the place is quite good, and we liked it. The staff are friendly and leave you alone. Some of the rooms are quite "far" from the beach, i.e., 2-3 minutes walk. It is not a big deal at all, but the rooms are not directly on the beach either. The booking process for a

I spent the night of 7 December 2018 at Barracuda Inn, in Room 12. It cost me Ksh 7,000 (about US$70), but when paying by card a 5% commission is added. The hotel is spread out over a large area, with several blocks in which the rooms are. Some of the rooms are a walk away from

This is a busy resort with loud music playing by the pool and the beach. It has the feel of a package holiday resort, with pool games and excursions arranged by reps. It's very popular with Italians. It's safe and you'll be surrounded by people, but it's not peaceful, somewhere

I've been at the Barracuda Inn a couple of weeks ago and I can only say that it was an amazing experience! The location is great, the resort is beautiful and the staff is truly lovely. The food was amazing too! I really enjoyed every single moment and I'm looking forward to

Despite of the place that is wonderful, our experience has been even nicer, thanks to all staff of the resort. We enjoyed every single moment of our vacation. Recommended for safari and excursions: Peperone Abu Safari Kenia (see his facebook web page)

È sconsigliato il periodo da aprile a luglio... febbraio è il periodo migliore, ma penso anche dicembre sia buono. Il migliore dei beach boys è Giacomo Salento...io l’ho fatto con lui il safari è un bravissimo ragazzo

Non è il periodo migliore perchè riaprono tutti gli hotel dopo la stagione delle piogge, non farà caldissimo e può piovere spesso, magari se si ha fortuna......però il periodo ideale va da ottobre a marzo, la loro estate

Io sono stata la scorsa estate a fine luglio, sinceramente non te lo consiglio, ci sono stati solo due/tre giorni di sole durante la settimana, per il resto pioggia o nuvole! Infatti nel villaggio dove sono stata, il Barracuda Inn, ci hanno detto che avevano appena aperto, eravamo i primi ospiti! La stagione estiva in Kenya inizia più tardi, personalmente ti consiglio di andare verso novembre/dicembre se puoi, io non potevo per questo ho scelto luglio, anche perché in agenzia non mi avevano detto che avrei potuto beccarmi tutta questa pioggia. Comunque se deciderai di andare ti consiglio di affidarti a Scoglio Ngoka per le varie attività, con lui mi sono trovata benissimo ci ha accompagnati nel Safari, nelle escursioni di mare a sardegna due, a garoda beach e alle mangrovie!
