Terrible on muddy beach, would not stay here again

1 out of 5
Posted Jan 7, 2016
Pros: The rooms are nice and spacious, very clean, comfortable bed. Good food but very over priced. Nice spa.
Cons: EVERYTHING! From landscaping to terrible terrible service, flimsy menus. Overpriced meals.
Location: Terrible location!!! There is a river that literally dumps mud into the ocean so the beach is literally mud. Complete far cry from Watamu beach.
We booked trip from Dec 30-Jan6 to celebrate the new year and my birthday. Booked through Expedia and according to their website the hotel was confirmed. On arrival at the hotel we were informed that there was a glitch with the Expedia booking system and the hotel was overbooked so they would have to accommodate us at their sister hotel KilmaNdogo hotel for the night while they rectified the situation. We were told that Kilimandogo is a 3 star hotel and we were greeted by dusty threadbare furniture, brown water coming out of the taps and no hot water or air conditioning. Following day our room was supposedly ready by 2pm, spent time by the green water pool which allegedly is due to the "green tiled floor", I guess I must be color blind. Went back to the reception at 6pm to check in to our new and improved room only to be informed that the room we were supposed to stay in was no longer available. We sat in the lobby for 2 hours while they got our new "premier suite" newly renovated,never been slept in room ready,only again to be greeted by dusty floor that hadn't been mopped clean, sediment and dead insects coming out of the water jets in the jacuzzi bath tub and again cold water. I got to turn the new year in my bikini and cover up only because I had no where to freshen up! The service was terrible, over worked, poorly trained wait staff. Literally muddy beach!!!! Did not step foot in the ocean. Do not stay in Malindi, stay in Watamu, the difference is night and day!!!

Paradise with Beach

5 out of 5
by from Madrid, Spain
Posted Jul 5, 2012
My wife and myself stayed in this hotel for 8 nights during June 2012. It is an absolute paradise if someone looks for total relaxation in intime tranquillity and extreme comfort without any fuss. The rooms are very spacious, the beds have first class matresses, the qualitiy of the towels and amenities is top and the overall cleanliness is outstanding. The restaurant serves a 5star quality food with a changing menue on every evening of the week. The service of the staff is super polite, extremely professional and willing to please every reasonable desire. The spa is superb and the water in the semi-olympic sized pool is pure and does not contain any clorox. The parklike garden is very well designed and taken care of, and a small heaven for lizard-watchers. The 10mile beach is just a step out of the garden and inviting for long walks or runs. Fortunately there are no nightclubs or shops in or near the hotel ....... that is another reason why we call this wonderful hotel ..... ´Paradise with Beach´.

fantastic service

Posted Oct 17, 2011
This resort was located away from Malinda proper in a quiet neighborhood. The service was prompt, polite and personal from the moment of my arrival until my departure. The room was tastefully decorated and was spcious enough to move around comfortably. The bedding was quility and quite comfortable. There are two restuarants on site. The menus offered many Italian dishes and some other western choices, all excellently prepared. The reosrt is situated next to the beach. You can see the ocean from many of the rooms. The landscaping was well maintained and the grounds were comforatble for walking around and even doing some bird watching. I highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel carino sulla spiaggia

Posted Aug 16, 2015
Tutto bene a parte colazione limitata Prezzo eccessivo come tutti gli hotels di malindi infatti il turismo e' morto e malindi e' diventata un ospizio con tre pensionati che alloggiano chissa' dove...

Qualità e relax

5 out of 5
Posted Jun 28, 2012
Cons: L'errata indicazione in expedia della localizzazione dell'Hotel che appare nel centro di Malindi
E un albergo dove la quieta è sovrana. Adatto a chi desidera una vacanza in oieno relax
