Great family friendly place
Sun Palm beach is really a great place to stay. As is Watamu! All staff were very (child)friendly. Only remarks would be the limited choice of food (non Italian alternatives were on the menu but not available during ou stay).

2/10 Poor

This property is not as shown on the website. It was a shabby room with black mold showing on the walls of the facility and in the outflow pipe to the AC. The bathroom is a mess, cracked vanity cracked and dirty molding on shower floor soiled by age tile floor. The room AC shut on and off many times during the hot tropic nights. The food started fine but later brought the gift of travelers disease (diarhea). This is not a 4 star hotel. The beach was 4 star. Who rates these resorts anyway? This was a most distressing stay after a 21hour flight. Expedia you should be ashamed and embarassed to represeent this resort.

Great resort set on a fantastic beach.
We stayed at the Sun Palm for 3 nights as a family of 5. The staff were very welcoming and showed us around the resort and were very accommodating with our needs. The resort is set on a fantastic beach with clear water and an abundance of interesting island/coves to discover. The room was excellent, spacious and clean. The buffet food was good with plenty of options, including pancakes for breakfast and pasta station for dinner, which kept our kids happy. The restaurant on site was also excellent for choice. The hotel catered for their Italian guests but as English speakers we were not left out and every effort was made to ensure we were involved especially during the evening shows. Would return again for another fully enjoyable holiday.

Well rested
Hotel very much. late check out until 16.00 cost $ 40. bedding and towels changed daily. English speaking staff. the food in the general restaurant is of good quality, but a small cockroach crawled along one of the salads. The à la carte restaurant on the menu offers Japanese, Italian and Swahili dishes. we chose Japanese and were shocked. instead of miso soup, we were served warm water with soy and instant noodles from the bag. Tempuri were edible, instead of sushi, we were served 3-4 kinds of rolls with a minimum amount of fish. The chief of restaurants Mario apologized for our remarks and wishes and gave us a 10% discount for which he thanks. very much straining beach boys on the beach, do not lag behind you for anything. the job of protecting the beach is only to prevent the beach boys from entering the beach area of ​​the hotel, but they manage to impose their goods and services from there. but this is a problem of hotels all over the coast. in general, the hotel and its location is quite decent.
