Stayed here on a business trip to Malindi. I do enjoy the rooms, service and food. I miss a gym, not that easy to run outside in the morning. Does claim to be 5 star, so would expect this facility. Very spacious and well designed rooms. Wi if is poor, as a business traveler very important requirement.

Dear Sir, thank you for your comments and feedback. The Gym is one of the facilities that will soon be opened at the hotel, the WiFi unfortunately does not depend from us and our provider (the only one available) lets us very much down. They are currently laying finer optic all over the town and soon we will be able... More

I'd... More

Despite reserving way in advance, rooms had been overbooked and we had to wait quite a while to get to the room. The food was not great especially the buffet selection- rather drab and lacking creativity and variety. Ala Carte was a better option in... More

For me it was an unforgettable experience, great people, nice entertainment, delicious food. Clean swimming pools. I spent here the whole of Easter and I swam until I couldn't swim any more. It is indeed a majestic place to be.

Wonderful ambience, great food, great entertainment. Just improve the strength of wifi in the rooms and entertainment options for the children, such as board games, boat rides and beach games like volleyball, snorkeling, wind surfing, equipment to build sand castles, etc
