This hotel is absolutely wanting for hospitality. Service is absolutely slow and the food is way below par. The hotel does not compare with others in the same area (say, Hemingways).Would not recommend it to anyone.

A very nice hotel with a good scenery but the shower area was too small and also the food was not upto standard. The staff are very friendly. It has a big swimming pool and lots of activities. But overall a good place.

Warm welcome from staff when we arrive and stayed for four nights. We were treated like kings with fantastic teamwork from staff and management. Big pool, on going activities to kayaking in watamu conservation. Night life plus football fever and relaxing atmosphere. Beach was clear and friends did kite surfing. The chef and waiter surprised us with mouthwatering seafood platter.... More

I had gone for a field trip with my class and we enjoyed it.The rooms were not bad.The food was good for non vegetarians but for vegetarians it was kind of bad cause they did not have much of vegetarian dishes. Most of the cycles were punctured and the swimming tasted of chlorine and salt mixed together.But i liked my... More

We stayed here for 5 days in March 2014. Though disappointing in many aspects, the stay was nonetheless comfortable. Spacious rooms, friendly staff & nice food. The conference facilities were average with many power interruptions. The bathrooms need improvement though. All in all, Malindi is a great tourist destination! Must visit the 'Gede Ruins'! Quite a spectacular site!

We found this place by mistake, While driving around looking for a place to eat lunch and with access to the ocean while holidaying in Malindi we came across this hotel at the end of the road. It looked a bit deserted but as I noted later - it was the serene environment that i mistook for being deserted! the... More

After our fantastic safari holidays my husband and I stayed in Temple Point Resort for 4 days of relaxation. And I have to say it was a truly amazing experience! All the guesthouses have 2 stories and we stayed in a room above (much better than the one on the ground floor!). Rooms are large, comfortable and clean with mini... More

Sea view rooms does not meet the expectation. I guess I am used to an open balcony overlooking the sea and maybe sand around. Other standard rooms are much better value for money compared to what I was moved to as sea view. The grounds near the sea view rooms could do with some attention. Entertainment and food was good...
