2/10 Poor

Samuel, front desk staff, made the experience a horrible one because he was extremely impolite, unwelcoming, and condescending when I arrived to check in. The resort has otherwise been incredible but an uncouth first impression by employee Samuel, made me wish I had booked a different resort. So I hope the management will address this issue because if they don't, their reputation will be tarnished all because of one employee.

Very nice property and beautiful surroundings! My issue was the thin foam mattress, not a mattress which should be at a resort for the price you pay.

Temple Point made me fall in love with Watamu. Such a beautiful property with well thought out nature spots! The private beach is divine, and you can walk all the way to Garoua beach. The sunset view at Lichtaus is epic and they OCA spot plus spa so cool. As you can guess, I will be back! The managers were also super friendly, felt really at home on my solo trip.
