Money taken from room during my stay
The equivalent of $350 in USD and Euro was taken from my room during the morning of my first full day at Aquarius. What was most disappointing was the attitude of management, which was mostly that this was "impossible," and was not taken seriously, despite the fact that all signs pointed to someone on his staff that had access. A report was filed with the Watamu police (DB 33/24/1/017), and the investigation is still ongoing. Indicative of the poor judgement surrounding the incident, i found out upon my departure that the individual who cleaned my room the day of the robbery, a likely suspect, was still allowed to clean my room the whole time after the robbery! Outside of this wholly negative incident, my experience was largely positive. The local Kenyan staff was wonderful, the grounds were attractive and well-maintained and, while the buffet meals were good, they could have been a little more varied. I'd avoid the "single" rooms, although i'd still consider it a good value for the price paid, the air conditioner leaked, hot water didnt work well, and the shower sprayed everywhere. The "regular" rooms, though, were quite nice, very spacious many with private balconies, with none of the items mentioned that were wrong in the "single rooms." Wifi signal inconsistent and definitely does not reach all the rooms. Also annoying that there were daily power outages of varying duration that when they occured also caused the water to shut off.

à éviter
Hotel à éviter le management n'accepte pas les critiques, nous avons fait savoir notre mécontentement de la nourriture, cuisine peu variée à base de plats italiens pas très attrayant ( pâtes et riz à tous les repas c'est dommage dans un pays africain) le restaurant ressemble plus à une cantine de collège qu'a un restaurant d’hôtel. Wifi de très mauvaise qualité et chambres basiques, une chaise pour deux pas de table juste un grand lit; loin de la plage.
