The hotel is in a quiet and serene place yet its just a walking distance from the Malindi business district. The Nakumatt supermarket and the famous Stardust and Patapata night clubs are just 2-3minutes drive with the tuktuk taxis.
The best rooms would be the suites which have both the AC and fan and a small fridge. The standard rooms are quite squeezed for space and just have a fan.
The hotel is clean and well maintained with a big centrally located pool. It is also not crowded giving you a bit of peace and relaxation.
From the hotel we visited the Sabaki river/Indian ocean delta which is just about 15mins in a tuktuk. The Malindi Pier, vasco da gama pillar, Malindi marine park are some of the interesting place around easily accessible in the tuktuks.
The staff were friendly, breakfast was sumptuous and we managed to get some lovely kitchen ladies make us some favourite dishes we had missed from home that were not on the menu.
Just a few things to improve, install underwater lights in the pool for a late night swim, make the hot water regular and available all the time and request some employees not to be over friendly or over courteous :-) sometimes its not advisable to overdo it.
We will definitely come back.More
