Travelled ther with a group of friends in January 2011. After a night in the overrated North Coast, we went on a road trip to Malindi and ended up at Eden Roc - it was a choice we didnt regret!
The white beach was stunning and we went to ride the waves up until 7pm!....thereafter we had dinner - excellent sea food which is not entirely surprising given its location. The rooms were clean, spacious albeit a bit old. The bed was huge and there was alounge and a private balcony at the back, overlooking a natural form pool and some beautiful gardens.
There was a band in the evening, and they were kidn enough to play me a number as I slipped the ring on my girlfriend's finger and asked her, rather successfully, to marry me! :-) After our engagement, we allI ended up at one of our balconies and toasted until late before exploring the famed Malindi nightlife. Breakfast was tidy and really comprehensive and our guide still found breakfast despite oversleeping at waking up at 11am!....Check-out was smooth especially as we had paid for the dinner right after the meal while the breakfast cost was included in the room rate.
Overall, an excellent hotel, it might show signs of age her and there but the charm and personality are still intact.
