My husband and I were here recently and we enjoyed every minute of it. The rooms are clean, tidy and spacious. The staff, from the concierge staff to the waiting staff, catered to us very well. The chef personally came to ask if we'd enjoyed our food! (Of course we did.) I had a facial and a pedi done and... More

I visited the hotel over easter to use the spa one day. I can without doubt say that this was the best set of spa treatments I have ever had and this is not an exaggeration. Afterwards I had a lovely dinner in one of the restaurants with a beautiful view. A manger approached me and we had a great... More

I stayed here for 10 days with my family! Initially I was worried that 10 days would be too long, but I truly could have stayed much longer! You're in your own world in the resort and so well taken care of you feel very at home! The grounds are beautiful, the attention to detail is evident in everything from... More

As a tour operator i got chance to tour around the resort, after being shown around by the manager, it was clear in my mind that ''this is the class and the standards the Malindi needed''...The rooms, restaurant, bars, swimming pool and the beauty parlour is nothing but the best, equiped with new and modern facilities, beyond anyone expectations!

We had booked for two nights at the Ocean Beach Resort and Spa, after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor – no negative comment and top rating by all reviewers. The resort is a nice one with good rooms and most facilities one would look for. Dinner at restaurant is pretty good as well (try the barbecued prawns). However, our overall... More

First of all I really want to thank Tripadvisor that gives the owner the possibility to reply to false allegations like the ones in this review. To start I want to say that I was present at the check in and Mr. "Travelfoodie" introduced himself saying: "You only have positive reviews, let's see if they are true". After he was... More

My family are reasonably experienced travellers: been there, done that. Nothing could have prepared them for our visit to Kenya and the Ocean Beach Resort in Malindi. They rate it as their best vacation, ever. First the resort itself: just beautiful. The food was superb, although we prefer authentic food so were happy to go to local restaurants on some... More

We stayed at the Ocean Beach Resort for 8 nights to relax between travelling through Africa and I could have stayed longer. One of the best things about the resort is the staff.
