Didn't make it last year and were amazed at how many staff have noticed our absence and sort us out to check we were ok and happy to be back. We have been lucky enough to holiday throughout the world but here the friendly staff, good...

This was our first visit and first time all inclusive. The welcome drink and flannel were very much appreciated by all. The General Manager, Damian, was on hand to welcome us and made sure we were taken to our rooms and given an overview of the hotel. We were in a Lama room as I had requested no stairs due...

We visited Turtle Bay Beach Club in November / December 2012. This was our second visit (first visited last year) and we had a fabulous holiday. It was every bit as good as last year. We travelled with Thomson this time - the flight was better than we expected! We arrived at Mombasa rather tired and then had to endure...

We spent eight nights at this resort with a large group/party of people. Every evening we shared a table with our party of 34 and the buffet provided us with very good food. The booze was included in the deal. Each evening there was some form of entertainment which was always worth watching, usually performed by local people. The beachfront...

TBBC is set on a lovely beach, has really friendly staff with the occasional sourpuss. We had a lovely complimentary anniv dinner at the ala carte restaurant, service was great and they were very accommodating of our 2 under 5s.

We went to Turtle Bay in July 2012 and again now in December. We enjoyed it so much the first time, we didn't waste any time in going back again - this time for a little bit longer. The service is always excellent from everyone including food and beverage staff around the pool to friendly room attendants. The food is...
