I stayed two nights - December 4 and 5, 2013 - in a standard room in this hotel when touring Malindi. Check in took some time; although I had made a booking by telephone a few days earlier, the check in staffer didn't seem aware and it left me feeling that if it were the high season, with almost all...

Stayed here 3 nights. It's not far from the airport, a short walk to many shops and of course a big Nakmatt and a short walk to the sea. There seemed to be some ambitions in the past to make this a really nice hotel but these seem to have been forgotten. The staff are courteous although a bit too... More

The hotel is far from the beach, needs major maintenance works and the food is at best mediocre. The music is too loud during dinner and breakfast and I spent one of my worst nights in 12 years in Kenya there. The mosquito net seemed to be designed to keep them in instead of out and I was sucked dry... More

I stayed at Eden Roc for 6 nights. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The hotel manager is great! The food was good, the rooms were clean, and the pools were lovely. The town of Malindi is safe and clean. You can walk the main street after dark without any issues. I would definitely stay here again and bring more... More

Had originally booked to stay for three nights but left after one night for a far better hotel, also in Malindi. Poor maintenance - TV and fridge didn't work. No curtain in bathroom and could be seen from outside walkway. Room was dirty with ants, large lizard and other insects. Poor security - non-existent for an area where security is... More

Pros: Good location, nice pools, lovely beachfront. The staff was excellent. Reasonable prices for food/drinks. Cons: Run down, shower was always backed up, air conditioning did not work especially well.
