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! Thanks... More

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. They are friendly and attentive and their service is exceptional. The owner is also always around making sure you are comfortable and happy. The grounds are meticulously... More

From my initial inquiry to Harvey Ndege about the resort until my before dawn departure everything was first class. As a single woman my main concern is always safety. There is around the clock security on the grounds and beach. There were very few beach boys, and at times it seemed like the hotel guests had the very expansive beach... More

Me and my wife stayed for 3 days, just took a short holiday from our residence in Mombasa, and this hotel with their service minded and friendly staff was a very pleasant confirmation of what we read on trip advisor. The 25 meter clean pool was excellent for morning swim and the sunbed with the fresh breeze was just what... More
