The staff was good and helpful. My daughter had the wedding of her dream. Thank you so much. The poolside wedding was,very good. The priest was good. The children had a good time in the different pools. We loved the tukutuku rides to and from Malindi town. The beach was very beautiful.

The hotel is amazing. Everyone is involved in making your stay there worth while, the owner of the resort inclusive. It is perfect for a group of people that want to have fun or a couple. It was most definately worth it.

Beautiful rooms, furniture and decorations. Amazing pool. But the food was really not up to standard. The seafood is better in Nairobi - and that's a big disappointment when you're going to the coast for vacation. Definitively worth the 30 min drive to get to another hotel/restaurant with excellent food.

A nice hotel, tucked away in Mambrui. Extremely quiet and peaceful. Had lunch at their Italian restaurant .... Quite delicious. If one needs to get away to a tranquil place, this is it....A nice beach but the water is not as clear as Watamu
