Great place to stay if you want to mix self catering but have also ant to eat out . The on site Italian restaurant is perfect for lunch or dinner. Eg Roman pizzas . There are numerous villas & bungalows dotted around the grounds and 4 swimming pools. This place deserves to be busier and hopefully once the pandemic fades overseas tourists will be able to return. Meanwhile it’s a great staycation spot. They seem to try to keep the families in one area which is ideal, can imagine it wouldn’t be so peaceful when full of noisy kids. There are a few maintenance issues as can only be expected as the accommodation hasn’t been used much and keeping things working costs money and needs guests to keep it going. The bones of the place are very good quality, tiles and decor etc. Ideally you’ll have a car so you can go to the beaches and explore Malindi , which is the best place for Afro-style shopping, crafts, beaded wares etc ! the reception can arrange transport for you. Short or longer stay it’s ideal. We’ll definitely be back

The Residence has already some years, but is very well maintained and keeping a certain classic style. Several pools available and a restaurant where food has good quality. The gardens are very pleasant with a lot of mango tree and its shadows...

The resort was nice in appearance; the staff seemed very friendly, but for some strange reason I never felt comfortable. When we arrived we were made to purchase more accommodations because our family size was 8 and it only slept 8. While we were aware of the sleeping arrangements it did not matter to us, but they insisted it was not permitted and 2 of the family would not be permitted to stay unless we purchased another room. They charged us 2x as much as we paid to be there for a 2 bedroom as the 1 bedroom we were forced to take. We found the room to be clean but it had an odor; we later learned it was the water and rusted pipes. The beds were very hard and the water smelled of rust. Every time we bathed or washed our hands it left an odor on us. (The salt water is ruing the pipes). The restaurant and staff were nice and the food was good. We should have know that something was not right when we went to use the safe and it did not work, but we called maintenance and they came and fixed it. Half way though our stay, we went into the safe to find that our money had been taken. When we informed management via email as it was closed when we found we had been robed of 40,000 KES which is equivalent to $ 400.00 American dollars. That evening we emailed management because the front desk was closed and there was not an emergency number. The email was not correct and no one ever replied to it. The next morning we reported it to the front desk staff, but all they gave was apologies and not results. We went to the police and filed a report, but because we were leaving on the following day there was not much they could do. When we reached Sofia the manager by phone the next day, she was rued and defensive. Not once did she apologize for the occurrence. The next morning as we were checking out we saw here in the breakfast area, but again she did not come and speak with us or acknowledge us at all.

If you're looking for an isolated, nice place to stay then this is it. I also liked the self-catering idea. The environment is clean with lots of mango trees; we ate plenty of them daily. It's a short ride to town so you won't miss out on much.
