Hotel is located next to 3 other hotels from same chain. Diamonds malindi is a very authentic and relaxing hotel with only 23 rooms, thus we are max. 46 people. We were only 20 in the hotel so we were ver familiar with each other.
Rooms are clean, the cleaning staff comes twice a day to do the bed and prepare the room for the night. You have a bad set for shower, etc.
About breakfast: there is a buffet, a simple one with local fruits, biscuits, local bread. You also have the choice between fresh cooked eggs and pancakes.
Lunch: you will get a menu where you can choose between 2 soups, 2 type of pasta/rice, 2 main dishes with fish or meat, and a salad bar and dessert bar.
Dinner: same as lunch.
The best with this hotel is that if you need to stay relax, you stay in diamonds, if you need entertainement, you go to coconut or tropical (2 next doors hotels) and then you have the spa at dreams of africa. So you can have dinner in different hotels and take part of the hotels entertainment.
About safari: we chose a 1 day safari, we left the hotel at 4 am and we came back at 5 pm! It was a fabulous experience and we saw a lot of animals except the lion, which is difficult to see because they are only 250 in 13000 square km. So thomas cook will try to sell you 2 days safari at 250-320 usd whereas we pay 115€ and we saw everything (we chose excursions with alex from the hotel). to summarize, great hotel and great staff as they personalize your meal if requested, make you feel special if you go to them. They seem cold at the beginning, but are very funny and friendly! Thank you diamonds malindi staff, thank you kenya for this unforgetable holidays
