Tamani Jua Tao Resort
Ranked #16 of 28 Hotels in Malindi
Reviewed 13 January 2014

Arriving to the hotel we were told that the hotel added a 5 % fee if the room was payed for by credit card. Since the hotel is rather expencive we did not carry that much cash around so we had to pay by credit card. This should have been mensioned when booking the hotel.

The breakfast was not to my taste. They did have fruit and yogurt but the only bread they had was toast, only the toaster did not work properly so you had do wait ages if you wanted toasted bread. Other then that they had sweat bread and eggs.

The pool is good and the pool staff was nice, the rest of the staff was average, not very nice or happy but they did help us arrange a big taxi for our onwards jurney.

The rooms are spacious and nice but the shower is pretty bad. The hotel is located far from the city center and the beach but it is easy and cheap to take a tuktuk anythere in town.

Overall the hotel is a good place to stay but the staff and reception as well as the breakfast could be a lot better.

Room Tip: We stayed in a junior suit, this was worth the extra 10 usd / night.

This was a wonderful place that was very affordable. Our family room was huge, actually two rooms a living room and a large veranda. Breakfast was very nice. The staff was always helpful and made us feel welcome. it is off the beach but the tuk tuks are very affordable. We went into Malindi and to the beach quite frequently. We also enjoyed the pool which is large.

We stayed at Tamani Jua for a week and it was a very pleasant experience. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the staff was efficient, friendly and very attentive to our needs. (Many thanks to Justine, John and Faith!) A lovely swimming pool and outdoor tv, air-conditioning in the bedroom as well as an overhead fan. We hope to return in the near future. Malindi is an interesting town and if you like Italian cuisine you will not be disappointed: wonderful espresso, gelati and pasta.
