Its located a short walk away from the Marine park gate entry point and that automatically makes you feel safe. Went in the low season so we practically had the entire place to ourselves and that made for very...

I stayed at Marine Holiday House for 10 days during a recent trip to Kenya. The room and en suite were spotless and very large, the grounds are beautiful with a lovely pool, and the walk to the beach is delightful. The staff is very kind and helpful---and they have some great cook/s. The owners are a kind Italian family,...

The setting is similar to a tropical paradise, beautiful but simple rooms, cosy bar/pool are (although we never used it) and excellent food and really nice service staff... however, the managers were a quite arrogant and not very helpful... I don't know if it was because we were almost the only ones at the time after a busy high season,...

Welcomed by a drunk, arrogant, smoke puffing manager Luca, Pamper holding wife on one hand, crying baby on the other. We wondered if we had arrived at the wrong address. Very unprofessional behaviour with taps on the shoulders, maybe due to the fact that the manager was drunk .Soon after another property on another location that we had not booked,...

This was supposed to be a deluxe double room !The place is unhygienic and badly run by the management . Customer Care from the management was poor. On...

The place is really nice, very well located for touring around Malindi. The closest beach is walking distance from the hotel and is the National Park. Although is very beautiful, it is small and a bit crowded (at list when we went). The place is clean, the rooms are spacious, the food is great. Yet, my main complain is the...

The single best hotel/resort/B&B I have ever experienced. I'm not exaggerating. The accommodation is flawless, the meals are perfect, the hosts are incredibly nice. Such a wonderful experience, would recommend to anyone ever traveling to Malindi.

We, 5 persons from two families, prebooked this hotel from home a long time before arriving to the coast after a 9 day safari. Our choice was mainly due to the positive comments on Tripadvisor as well as the price. On arrival we got a welcome reception including a cool drink from Anthony the always present servant as well as...
