I stayed only 1 night at Mela's but I really, really like it, what I can't say about Malindi in general. It was the best BB I have found so far in Africa. The rooms are basic, but nice and clean and there is a very nice lounge area and a nice pool. The owner and staff were very friendly.... More

The premises of the villa are really good -... More

Wilma, Gianni and the staff gave us a quite magical experience. With a few thunderstorms during our stay, it was never an inconvenience sitting in the pillared living room with a Tusker. The food was wonderful as were the suggestions for local safaris and fishing - I caught a marlin! The staff were attentive and friendly and the bedrooms cool... More

The Mela`s B&B is the ideal place to have relaxed days in Malindi. The bed- and bathrooms, the dinning place (outside) and the poolarea are lovely decorated and in a nice condition. The owners are very friendly. You could reach nearly every place in Malindi in about ten minutes with a tuktuk.

We stayed there for 6 nights, it is a very nice place! Quiet surrounding, only a few minutes walk to the beach. A little bit far from town, but with a tuk tuk Malindi can be reached within 10 minutes. So it is a perfect place for a relaxed, private, easy going holiday. The pool is nice, and the compound...
