We arrived at Hemingways, Watamu, in January for our second visit in two years, having enjoyed our previous visit very much. We were not disappointed this time either - everyone was so welcoming and friendly. Our room was clean and of a good size and the large mosquito net meant that you did not feel claustrophobic (not that we saw any mosquitoes)
We enjoyed swimming in the two pools, relaxing on the front looking at the wonderful view and snorkelling on the old reef just in front of the hotel where there are plenty of beautiful fish. We also went out deep sea fishing with skipper, Steve, and were very successful, with plenty of large fish and also a sailfish. We would recommend this trip to anyone keen on fishing even though it is expensive.
The food was of a very high standard, with afternoon tea included. Evening meals were a mixture of waiter service and buffet meals. The buffets were excellent with plenty of choice, and it was wonderful to sit outside for our evening meals with excellent local bands providing music to entertain us.
Thanks must go the George for managing to change our flight to Hemingways Ol Seki in the Masai Mara from Mombasa (with a 4a.m. start!) to Malindi (with a more civilised 8a.m. start!
We would like to thank all the staff for making our stay so perfect, we'll be back!More
