This has to be the worst resort I have ever been to. To start with, they have no internal parking so you have to park your car outside on the road. We had to pay a 35 euro charge per person (we were not informed of this charge so was a total surprise). This charge was for using the hotel... More

Had our honeymoon here and the team didn't even try to make it any special for us. We only got shower gel on our first night after which we had to beg for shower gel. We actually made numerous calls to reception who ignored our request. We got shower gel in containers smuggled to us by a worker. No label... More

The Coral Key was the perfect base of operations for our recent one-week stay in Kenya. The property is right on the beach with wonderful views of the Indian Ocean; the grounds of the resort are beautiful and meticulously maintained; and the multiple swimming pools on the property were fantastic. The meal and all-inclusive drink plans were good values although... More

As stated by Zdenek K, the most important thing for you to know is that every night there is a disco, some nights it goes very late, and of the 7 nights we stayed, two were so loud that, despite earplugs, I slept poorly. If you like to stay of late and dance, you'll likely love it. If you are... More

Though the town of Malindi is only about 120 km from Mombassa, the trip from the airport can take up to three hours on a quite dusty and bumpy road. An option worth considering is to travel by air to the Malindi airport. As the hotel is very popular among Italian tourists, all the inscriptions are in Italian language (English... More

Malindi is one of the most beautiful, quaint, yet lively town I've ever been to. Coral Key allows you to experience Malindi. It's centrally located, which is convenient. There are ice-cream parlours, cafes, supermarkets and restaurants within walking distance, in case one is to get bored of hotel food (which is highly unlikely here). La Pizzeria, the Italian restaurant there... More

We selected the Coral Keys Resort because we're RCI members and this was the one resort that met our needs in terms of meeting up with our kids for vacation (they were in Mombasa), and the units were available for our timeframe. Overall, Coral Keys Resort is a solid place to stay. Couple of points up front: 1. 90% of... More

Food is great, warm reception bar need to work on their bar variety.Pools are splendid. The Dj music needs to be greatly improved. Lunch hour should be extended by 30mins, so should dinner. a beach alcoholic AI bar also should be put.
