beautiful but reservation problem

The place was beautiful and quiet. But we had a problem with the reservation : the villa was already booked when we arrived. And the family inside the villa didn't want to leave...We should wait the day after to enter the villa at 5 pm so we lost time...and we had 2 bedrooms and 1 kitchen in compensation. The problem also was we didn't have clear explanations with the mananger...But we enjoyed our stay in this villa. Also we din't have internet during 1 day and wirefire works only near the reception (far from the villa).

Stayed 5 nights in Oct 2017

Злой и жадный Лука

Отель не плох на первый взгляд,достаточно уютная террит-я,персонал услужливый и очень приятный-они молодцы!Пожалуй,из плюсов это всё.Теперь о главном.Отель, а точнее гест хаус расположен в итал. части города,точнее пригорода Малинди.Здесь всё итальянское:кафе,магазины,рестораны,отели и т.д. Итальянцы повсюду:старые и молодые, маленькие и большие-все итальянцы!Кто-то там живет,кто-то отдыхает.Итальянские дедушки приехали позабавиться с молоденькими африканками,а итальянские бабушки-с африканскими чернокожими юношами.Противно!Не без исключения этот гест хаус-тоже итальянский,принадлежит Луке и Джессике.Джессика-адекватная,достаточно добродушная девушка.Лука-жадный,безэмоциональный,расчетливый и не очень располагающий к общению человек.Отдыхать на территории геста не очень комфортно из-за постоянного нахождения там Луки и его двух детей,которые бесконечно шумят,бегаю и резвятся.Лука постоянно за всеми наблюдает,бесконечно нервно курит,постоянно что-то считает на калькуляторе,записывает в ежедневник и пересчитывает деньги.Наблюдать эту картину не очень приятно.Это-что касается хозяина,а теперь о проживании:горячей воды нет,её,экономный Лука включает по вечерам на час и то не всегда.Такая же история с электричеством-его тоже регулярно отключают.Имейте ввиду!В номерах нет сейфов и холод-ов. Полотенца меняются через раз.Мыло-один кусочек был выдан в начале проживания,больше мыло не дают.Сущность Луки, как вы видите, проявляется во всём.Пляж в 10мин ходьбы, в воду не зайти-водоросли.

Green oasis near the Marine Park

I stayed one week in the Marine Holiday House in March 2014. I had a very nice time in this hotel, the rooms are spacious and the furniture is great, of course in African style but with an extra touch! The big bed is very confortable and everything is extremely clean and tidy. This hotel offers very good meals for an affordable price. I booked half board and was very happy with the food, a mix of Kenyan specialties and Italian taste, the fish was great and fresh fruit was always available, both during the day and for breakfast. The pool is great, especially in the afternoon when the beach is too hot, I enjoyed the shadow in and around the relaxing pool. The owners Jessica and Luca are extremely nice and offered to take me to the city more than once without charging any money, which is very unusual in Africa! The staff is very kind and helpful, both owners and staff speak good English, so that you'll feel confortable at Marine Holiday House wherever you might come from. I would go back any time! Thanks a lot.

Location: It is near the Marine Park, just a few minutes walking distance. No need to take a tuc tuc, great!

4/5 Good

leider nicht ganz am Strand - 300 m

Nettes familiäres Hotel. Italienische Sprachkenntnisse von Vorteil. Bar abgebrannt + nicht revitalisiert. Nichts besonderes auszusetzen.

Pros: Angenehme Athmosphäre, netter Pool

Cons: nix

Location: Casurina road ca 3 km vom Zentrum, 300 m vom Strand
