We love Eco Villas
We are students from the UK travelling up the coast of Kenya and absolutely loved our stay at Eco Villas. Juliette was so friendly and welcoming and cooked delicious home-made samosas. We would definitely come again here. All the staff are lovely and happy to help with anything!

Die vielen tollen Bewertungen sind absolut gerechtfertigt! Das Preis /Leistungsverhältnis ist unschlagbar, die Lage ist absolut kein Problem! Ganz besonders hervorzuheben ist die unvergleichliche Gastfreundschaft und die tolle Atmosphäre, Service ist perfekt,es fehlt an nichts! Freunde waren gleichzeitig in einem 3x so teuren 4 Sterne Hotel am Strand und waren enttäuscht. Watamu ist sehr italienisch geprägt, in vielen Unterkünften sind Nicht-Italiener Gäste 2 Klasse. Das Echo Villas ist in jeder Hinsicht absolut 1. Wahl in Watamu, wir würden jederzeit wieder hin obwohl wir sonst eher gehobenere Unterkünfte buchen.
