We stayed at this hotel in October 2014, the staff were so friendly and very attentive. The rooms were very spacious and my kids loved the Jacuzzi in the room. I was so impressed at how the staff did their best to pay attention to every little detail...my kids had Pancake with Chocolate Syrup for breakfast on the first day... More

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. The standards from the superb food to the exceptional service from all the staff is... More

First impressions of the hotel were good but service was terrible. I think the hotel was very understaffed. Pool attendant was hardly available. 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

The place has 5 star facilities but they need to invest more in service. Also given the price they would do well to include abit more variety in beers offered in the all inclusive package and not just tusker.

Everyone we came into contact with was friendly, helpful and made our stay even more special. The food was delicious and there was so much variety!... More

Found this as a nice place to relax. It is an ideal spot for weddings and honeymoon as per the way it is set up. It is shares a property with its sister hotel so if you have a big crowd that cannot afford this hotel they can easily stay in the in the sister hotel Le Gemma which is... More

Orignally booked in the hotel next door, we were upgraded due to the tragic downturn in tourism in the coastal resorts of Kenya. First Kenya does have problems, but malindi and the people of Malindi are so far away from this. our arrival and stay was truly amazing, after spending the prior week in tented camps, flushing toilets (with petals...

Stayed here for 2 nights over the Madaraka holidays and men I was thoroughly impressed. It's a nice and quiet place to relax and have a good time, whether alone or in a group. The food was very fresh and fantastically cooked! Loved the bitings provided throughout the day. I swear I grew fatter in those two days :-) Rooms... More
