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

I have just returned from a fantastic 2 weeks in Kenya with friends -first week was organised safari (Tsavo,Amboselli, Lake Nakuru and Masai Mara parks) and second week was chilling out in Scoprio Villas. The hotel is small, a total of 47 rooms only but that's exactly what I like, rooms are nice if a bit dark, especially the bathrooms... More

Staying in this hotel gives me a double feeling. The resort is nice, the beach is one of the best in Malindi, food, staff is o.k. The ladysinger of the band is boring after 3 times. But...you don't feel at home when you are not Italian. My requested room was bad! Shower, AC : terrible! And the smell from toilets,... More

My family and friends vacationed here last December. The overall look of the place was really pleasant and check in was quick and we were quickly shown our rooms. The room was large' clean and nicely furnished, however the tv were really old (CRT TVs) and the channel selections were very limited and not interesting at all. The villas have... More

Last December my daughter took me to Malindi in Kenya. We stayed there for 6 days in Scorpio Villas, which is the complex of bungalows situated in wonderful gardens. It's just a brilliant place with a private beach. The staff is very friendly, rooms big and comfortable, the food delicious. And, what was very important, the hotel wasn't crowded at... More
