Was there on 27th October with two work colleagues and only spent 1 night. Our check-in was late and I guess with the low numbers at the coast they weren't expecting guests so they had not prepared the rooms adequately! There was an army of tiny insects in my bed and the guy in the next room encountered a frog... More

I simply thought the staff were golden. They have animation games for the kids in a kids camp and that made our vacation... we have three children 4, 6, and 9.

Nice pool and cottage style rooms each with balcony. Breakfast poor but you can self cater. dinner OK. A nice walk to the beach although not the type of beach you want to swim on but good for walking. Not too far from the centre of Malindi which has an OK choice of places to eat

Being at seaviewresort for the 5th time. Clean rooms, service in the restaurant sometimes not professional, but always friendly and you can trust. If something was broken (aircon, fridge), it was repaired/replaced within hours. For Africa that is no time. Good breakfeast, dinner sometimes can be improved. Reliable safety within the compound. Managed by Massais. The owner himself is Massai.... More
