Its a great hotel and I really like the place. The food is continental but very good. The service is superb and the staff quite friendly. Only problem it is an all inclusive hotel that means you have to eat Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner in addition to the accommodation.

Myself and my husband stayed here for 2 nights some time back. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. The room was beautiful and so comfortable. The food was good and the pool gorgeous. A perfect 2 night getaway!

Excellent service! Rooms are beautiful, the hotel is awesome. All inclusive with great food and service. Great view of the beach too. This is a hidden gem in Malindi. There is evening entertainment, the kids were so thrilled.

Interestingly designed hotel, a bit dated, but large bedrooms with generous terraces. It is the staff that make this place special, they are fantastic, just that right level of friendly professionalism. Manager was very concientious. Food is great, plenty of variation, nice not to have buffets. Few niggles aircon in rooms is a bit annoying as it does not work... More

We have just returned from a four week stay at this fantastic hotel, having been staying here twice a year since 2007, we can only say that the hotel never fails to leave us wanting more and we cannot wait to return in April 2015.

We had to constantly go And look for him to arrange beds for us near the pool. Drinks service by the pool was also very poor. Waiters were scarcely available. On the second day when we asked...

When we first arrived at Dream of Africa it all seemed really nice. Staff are really friendly and the rooms are very nice and comfortable. The whole place is dated. It feels like they have done nothing to update, refresh (apart from a coat of paint here and there) or bring in anything new for 10 or more years. The... More
