The nicest hotel I have ever done... From Malindi's cute little airport, we took a taxi to the hotel, which is quite close to the airport, and came to this fantastic little hotel where Mombasa expected us barefeeted in a traditionnel dress with a smile. You just enter, and you realise that the photos that you've seen from there don't... More

This must be one of the most luxurious hotels in Malindi complemented by competent and friendly staff. The attention to detail is phenomenal. A must for anyone that wants to impress!! This hotel seems to be in demand so best to book early.

Having been transferred here at the last minute from our original choice hotel, my wife and I spent a fantastic 4 days at African House. The staff were really friendly, and very helpful; especially when it came to arranging a tuk-tuk to town on Saturday night. had a wonderful stay, and will definitely return at the first opportunity.

We spent two nights in African House and it was a bit of heaven. A calm and very nice garden with a pool, lovely, cosy rooms, authentic decoration... Food in the restaurant is delicious, you should try it, though a bit pricey. Stuff is very friendly and helpful. Location is not the best if you want to stay next to... More

As described by other reviewers, this place is crammed with African antiques and curios. With only 5 large rooms, and very spacious public areas, it feels more like staying in a private villa. We were the only guests there in the second week of January, so obviously very quiet. Staff very helpful. Could be picky about some aspects of the... More

Fantastic hidden retreat 10 mins outside of Malindi. Just 4 or 5 rooms so there is terrific privacy. The pool is lovely and atmosphere is very relaxed. There is wifi, but not in the rooms. The service was outstanding. Would highly recommend this hotel. There are a few areas that could be improved upon. It would be great if the... More

This place is hidden gem in Malindi, but still in a good location. This very small hotel has very luxurious feel to it, especially for that price. The decor is grand and fantastic, rooms are huge. Food (including breakfast) is prepared a'la carte to Your liking. Staff is very friendly and helpful and the dogs and a cat makes every... More

African house is a fantastic place hidden behind all the other beach resorts. Me and my girlfriend was blown away of how beautifull and nice this place was. The resort has a lot of african arts and funitures, which gives the place a personal and cozy atmosphere. Friendly people and the service was great. And its cheap as well. We... More

There are so many good things to say about African House Resort that I don't know where to start. I will start by saying that if good service is high on your list of requirements when choosing a hotel for your vacation then African House Resort is your place. First, the service was outstanding. Fredrick, our waiter, took care of... More
