I have never written a review before because I've never before been so impressed with the standard of service at any hotel or resort I have stayed at. It is simply outstanding! Every single member of staff was staggeringly helpful, eg when we needed some weighing scales for our daughter due to a medical problem, Celestine at reception had someone go to her home to collect hers for us to use!
We had the slightly more expensive Lamu rooms, and they were well equipped and spotlessly clean (with the odd slightly cracked tile, but this is Africa!) We had asked for a quiet room and that's exactly what we got. The food was delicious, again with delightfully friendly but not overbearing staff.
We had a 3 night safari to Tsavo East, West and Amboseli, and highly recommend our guide Raymond Kingi from Kingi safaris (google him). He was knowledgeable, helpful, accommodating and professional in every way, as was his very safe driver.
I also recommend the tuktuk drivers Barak and Elijah (ask at reception), whom we used on several occasions.
Finally, do go to one of the orphanages, we went to God our Father orphanage and it was moving without being overwhelming, and a good experience for our teens in particular to see how the other half live.
3 cheers for Turtle Bay Beach Club!
