We spent 6 nights in Marine Holiday House and really liked the hotel. Everything is very well taken care off: food, rooms, pool; it all looks tidy, clean and pretty. The hotel is small and therefore quiet and has a friendly atmosphere. The food is delicious (we recommend you to opt for half or full board), although for us non-Italian people it felt a bit strange to eat pies, muffins and other sweets for breakfast, but you'll not hear us complain.

The hotel is located about 5 kilometers south of Malindi, which we found an advantage: it is quieter and the beach is nicer than in Malindi itself.

If we have to name one downside of this hotel, it might be that warm water is only available from 18:30-19:30h, but who needs warm water anyway with temperatures around 30 degrees celsius?

In summary, this hotel offers good value for money: great food, a nice pool, clean and comfortable rooms for a modest price.

While searching for a place in malindi we came across this house. As we walked in both the host and hostess were so welcoming that we prayed they had rooms and sheer luck they did. For the children it was perfect with the pool where they swam with no restrictions.... The swing bed at the pool bar is perfect to just laze around in the evenings while having your drink. The food is excellent considering we had kids... Jessica & Luca went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. The room had a minibar and TV....which was perfect.
The staff were very helpful always at hand with a smile..... Though it was short but we had the most memorable time and would love to go back and stay longer next time.....

I thank both Jessica & Luca for making our stay one to never forget. May God bless them and their two beautiful kids Frederico and Phillipo

I have chosen the Marine Holiday House in Malindi by looking at the excellent reviews in Tripadvisor. Well, everything was even better than expected! The room and its bathroom were clean, natty and comfortable. You will feel as living in your own apartment with a wonderful garden and swimming pool and close to the Marine Natural Reserve of Malindi. Jessica and Luca, and the entire staff will do their best to meet your needs. The restaurant serves great Italian dishes with fresh daily seafood and organic vegetables picked directly in their garden. In sum, a great place to stay in Malindi!
Thank you Jessica and Luca,

Edoardo Mostarda

My girlfriend and I spent 5 nights at Marine Holiday House in Malindi and we wished we could have stayed for longer. Jessica and Luca and their wonderful staff looked after our every need. The rooms were excellent, the food was delicious and the grounds were immaculate. We had no complaint at all. Jessica and Luca were always on hand to help us with choices of what to do and where how to go. It can be a headache organizing trips with people hassling you, but our hosts knew numbers of people who just did everything for s at the correct prices. The hotel is about a 5 or 10 minute walk from a beautiful beach. The Marine Reserve is just offshore where you can organize a snorkeling trip or scuba diving. We saw octopus, millions of fish and a turtle.
Overall, we highly recommend Marine Holiday House. You will have a wonderful there.

Room Tip: We paid 5 euros extra to have a deluxe room and we had meals served on our verandah, which was a nice touch of luxury.
