Took the kids for a day out time to Malindi, though a very quite town, nothing much to do, but had a buffet lunch at Driftwood Beach Club. Fantastic Food, reasonable size swimming pool and the rates are pretty reasonable. enjoyed the day out

Driftwood has real charm, relaxed atmosphere and a really warm, friendly feel. The pool and bar overlook the beach and have a nice breeze, food is simple but well priced and good. We love this place and recommend it highly.

About
Description
Everyone will enjoy Driftwood Malindi for it’s barefoot, relaxed and informal style. We cater to families, couples or groups and can host small conferences or large wedding ceremonies. This charming More hotel is situated on Silversands beach. With reef protected, balmy water’s at the doorstep, this unique experience combines casual accommodation with excellent food and warm, friendly banter. The hotel is just a short 10 minute drive from the Malindi International airport and promises the wary traveller refuge from their daily grind. With easy access to the pristine beach, you can take your morning stroll at the water’s edge before breakfast, have a stress-relieving massage at our Spa and then settle in with a good book around the swimming pool to laze away the day.
