We stayed here over Christmas. It was awsome. A lovely hotel set in tropical gardens with four swimming pools, yet a two minute walk from their private beach. The way the hotel rooms are dedigned You get the feeling of being in your own private villa. We enjoyed relaxing on the swahili bed on the verandah of our room. Since... More

We spent our honeymoon here in November 2011 and it was the best experience ever! The prices are affordable and the service and customer care is just excellent. I would love to visit it again if time allows. Esther

Almost everything is perfect in Scorpio Villas. I visited a lot of places, but the people in Malindi are very kind and helpful, especially the staff. Always friendly and they don't walk away for a chat. They aren't very resourceful. There is yogurt, fruit and ice, but they can't make a smoothie. The rooms are big, clean and there is... More

The resort looks quite recently built and the rooms are very nice. There are numerous swimming pools, never very busy, and there is private access to the beach as well (although not as nice as the beaches in Watamu or further south in Malindi, as there is quite a lot of seaweed). The food is ok (particularly breakfast) but there... More

I had the pleasure to stay at this hotel on a half board basis in March 2011. It is hard to pick the best thing about this hotel... everything was as it should be - or even better. Rooms - we had a fantastic apartment with terrace. The room featured a huge double bed with a mosquito net above. The... More

I spent a week in March 2014 in Scorpio Villas under all-inclusive formula and I really enjoyed it. Excellent and very friendly service (waiters in the main restaurant and reception people are just stars and know how to entertain guests and meet their expectations), marvellous food (Italian style, seafood), nice garden and decent private beach. A very cosy, small, and... More
