Pros: Friendly staff, clean facilities, great honest food, whitesandy beach. Cons: Tons of VERY annoying beach hawkers (forget your early jogging or yoga on the beach), lousy WiFi, the gym is a joke, the rooms (Garden View) are stiff and poorly lit. The so called "soft" animation is in Italian language only and is very sparse. During the high tide... More

This resort is undisputed well managed. Facilities are perfect, clean and suited for children of all ages. The Jacaranda concept is perfect. The breakfast buffet is very good, for all the people. Staff always kind and very nice, room well-cleaned and bathroom perfect. A special thank you to the pool-staff, great in every moment. Surely i can suggest it.

Stayed here for 4 nights and wished it were longer. The resort is right on the whitesand beach and the water is beautiful. It was an all inclusive deal and the (entirely Italian) menu was good. The room was large and clean with an actual sea view from the balcony and the air conditioning worked well. At roughly £37 per... More

These all inclusive Italian themed beach resort provides the best of Italian culture in Kenya. Getting to the hotel took us about 40 minutes on a rough road which is approximately 15km from Malindi town. The resort has 3 swimming pools which are very clean although the water is a bit salty. The honeymoon suite is out of this world,... More

Jacaranda is very good with tip top service, nicely maintained swimming pools, good room service and generally excellent service and reception. The gym is also well furnished and the staff also very friendly. I would highly recommend for a family with or without children.

It is also well located for safaris meaning that... More
