I can imagine this hotel being fairly festive, but the Somalia situation and other factors lead to it being sadly quiet while I was there.
After a long day of travel to get to Malindi, I was slightly furious about having to move rooms twice because the showers weren't working. That said, the lady at reception was very helpful.
The rooms are pretty average and need an upgrade I felt.
The dining room and bar area are excellent, pitty they were both so empty though. Pool area is also superb. Its a short walk to some good bars and restaurants, but it was disappointing to see how quiet these were.
The hotel is right on the beach, but you have to walk a few hundred metres to get to the water, which has receded dramatically in the last 20 years.
Eden Roc isn't a bad spot, but I'll be trying somewhere else next time I'm in Malindi.
