The place is huge with rooms spread out around lovely pools and trees. The rooms are big, comfortable, beautifully decorated (the only thing I would have wished for was better lighting). Plenty of places to lounge or work on the computer. The breakfast buffet was fine and the dinner buffet great (including a vast array of options, both Italian and... More

The Scorpio Villas is likely suffering from what is ailing most of Malindi - a lack of business. There were a few tourists here, but by and large the place was empty. Of course, they minimized their staff work by putting all of us right next to each other, so it was fairly noisy, although not so much at night.... More

I visited the restaurant by myself. It had a variety of food to satisfy my insatiable palate. I loved the varieties of salads and the mare e monti (pasta) was to die for. Their homemade ice cream with many flavours was wonderful as well. The rooms are crisp clean with beautifully sculpted antique finishings. The beach is beautiful. I particularly... More

It looks good, however do not be deceived. This is a really low budget hotel. Cleanliness is poor. Having dinner is a nightmare with all the ants and mosquitos everywhere. Found a dead mosquito in my food at one point. Despite the staff being very accommodating and friendly, the management is really letting this place down. Don't risk it!!!

After a stressful week with a lot of work in Kenya's capital city, my boyfriend and I decided to get away from the city hustle and spend a short holiday at the coast. Therefore we spent three nights in April 2016 at "Scorpio Villas" in beautiful Malindi. It was the perfect place to be: Great, bright and spacious rooms with... More

My husband and three teenagers headed to Malindi expecting nothing but a great experience for our 21st anniversary treat. Scorpio did not disappoint! The reception, services from all staff, food and great facilities all contributed to our fullest satisfaction. Congratulations Scorpio management and staff.
