I went to Malindi in February, and it was very hot and nice. The room had aircondition and a very nice balcony where I spend most of my time. The rooms were spacy, but very common. The breakfast was nice with eggs, bread and fredag fruit - and of course the/coffee and juice

The best thing about this hotel is the lovely decor and scenery - it is definitely one of the most pleasing on the eye hotels I have stayed in. The room was also beautifully decorated with a lovely view from the balcony, but unfortunately the shower did not work properly and we had no hot water. The food in the... More

We visited the hotel for refreshments a number of times. Jeff was an exceptional host and we enjoyed the venue every time. You get the feeling you are unrestricted when at the African Pearl. Think I will stay here next time. :)

We stayed here over New Year's because it was the only place on the entire coast we found with a vacancy. But really, if you don't want to pay the exorbitant (peak season) rates charged by the beachside resorts, this is an OK option. We had a car so we were not bothered by the location - we could go...

This hotel is on quite a busy road, but the gardens and swimming pool / chill area mean you would barely notice. Look, this is a locally-run hotel kind of in between a backpacker hostel and a basic chain-style hotel - i.e. there are things which work, other things which work less (some areas could do with a bit of...

Jeff and his staff were super friendly and helpful and it's a nice setting with a bar, restaurant and pool area but it's at the far end of town and no access to the beach. Most of the people there were business travelers while we were there and we found the breakfast was good. The hotel was recommended by Rough... More
