I stayed for 5 days in May, 2014. I also stayed in 2010. The accommodations are ok. The positives: food, friendly and attentive staff. The negatives: Internet, towels, toilets, lack of hot water and water pressure Food is obviously prepared by someone who knows what they're doing. Breakfast was sparse but sufficient with eggs, toast, juices, cereal, beans and sausage.... More

Tamani Jua gave a mixed impression on both good/nice and really bad/not acceptable sides. In general it was OK, the lay out of the buildings, the pool area and the restaurant were nice. The staff was also helpful although it was sometimes difficult to made oneself understood in English! Italian is by no doubt the preferred language and Italians are... More

Booked a so-called Junior Suite through Booking.com. The room was just 3m x 3m and tucked away under stairs. The shower was poor and the room was generally tired. This room is what the hotel's own website calls a Superior Room but they told us that that was what had been booked through Booking.com despite our paperwork describing the room... More

The first thing I always thank those who write reviews of our resort, even though at times some of the reviews are not written with sincerity. In the case of this review, I want to clarify that customers will have been given two adjoining rooms very large and not measures such as reduced specify. Being in 4 people have considered... More

Arriving to the hotel we were told that the hotel added a 5 % fee if the room was payed for by credit card.

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.... More

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... More
