The food is mediocre , repetitive and forgettable. The staff is rude , unhelpful and everything seems to be a mission . The drinks are warm and no ice anywhere . No sugar free cooldrinks at all. Facilities are limited to a couple of swimming pools , beach full of seaweed and stinks . A walk on the beach be prepared to be harassed the entire walk. Anything ordered at a bar takes forever and you will wait even longer for a bite to eat . Rather avoid there has to be better places to stay in the area however most resorts or hotels have gone belly up and shut !! Can't blame everything on covid though would have expected Some appreciation from resort and staff . There were none !!

The rooms were clean, well-designed spacious and comfortable. The seats in the junior suite I was using were a little worn out, but ok. Generally, I can rate the rooms highly. The service was good but slow during dinner they seemed to be a little understaffed, drinks always took a while to get. The staff were polite however the waiting staff appeared to be clueless at times. The food was good, edible but not exceptional. The buffet variety was limited and although I was looking forward to the more local dishes being in Malindi, I did not manage to come across the famous Coastal Pilau Rice, they promised some, but it never really happened! The fresh juice was awful, on day 1, it was extremely watered down, Day 2 it had added sugar which we complained about, Day 3 we opted for the bottled soft drinks, the local soda's. What you can expect is lovely rooms, access to 3 pools and a good environment next to the beach. The rest pretty must average.

Loved my stay at the hotel! The rooms were excellent. The staff were extremely welcoming and cordial and the food was great! Would absolutely recommend a walk along the beach for early risers! Layout of light switches could be more clear though.
