Hemingways Watamu

Kenya Coast & Lamu Kenya

Hemingways is not my kind of place - too much of an insulated, Western-style resort, and rather expensive for what it is. However, to be fair to them, they were very good about my wanting to cancel the rest of my stay there and move on early. I had heard very good reports of it from other people earlier in my trip so was very disappointed by the standard of the accommodation and the general atmosphere of the place - though this is probably a matter of taste and I'm sure many people have a great time there. The Wifi didn't work at all, although the resort IT manager did come to try and fix it and told me he is planning to upgrade the system soon. I had almost run out of malaria pills, having left some behind in my luggage in Nairobi, and although I was able to make an appointment with the on-site doctor, I was very surprised to find he didn't have any in stock. The resort manager was very professional in dealing with my dismay at finding myself in a place I didn't like and I think generally they did everything they could for me.
