I ve been in this wonderful hotel on the beach cause I was in Malindi for business. The place is amazing, with a wonderful garden and four nice swimming pools. The beach is so pretty, close to Coco Beach, a bar in a very good position to have a fresh drink. My room was really clean, with a large washing...

Great stay, I had booked an upstair corner room with big balcony. It was a good experience with the chef and the kitchen staffs, they offered Indian veg food. The wifi can be improved and the beach access is good.

They let it go. I stayed here some few years back and it was an amazing place. Now everything about this place is off. Customer service poor. Rooms haven't been well maintained it seems like the hotel changed management and the new management isn't too focussed on local visitors. I really loved the Hotel but I wouldn't stay there again....

This is an excellent value hotel set in beautiful tropical gardens. Although it doesnt overlook the beach, the gardens and 4 swimming pools more than make up for the lack of sea view. The rooms are all different and are spread randomly throughout the site. Some are higher up and thus have steps to get to. The rooms are fairly...

I was reading the other reviews and yes, the hotel could be improved in some areas, but hey, a) it's Africa, b) it is really fairly priced ! As I was planning on staying an extended period of time in Malindi, I have seen other places, 10 to be exact, and none offered this kind of value. However, the staff...

Scorpio villas was an amazing place to start our holiday in Kenya. Travelling as a family of six we came here in August 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed every minute we spent there. From the start, the staff were some of the most caring people we've met, making sure we were looked after throughout our whole stay. The rooms and restaurant...

A great facility with amazing team members who display a great level of friendliness however the property is abit outdated and needs some maintenance work, cleanliness is another major issue which can be evidently seen from the restaurant seat covers to the rooms. Internet is very weak especially when you are staying in the rooms away from the reception areas...
