It was our honeymoon holidays for two weeks during valentine day. We get upgraded room on the beach so we have only a few meters to the beach! Jacaranda is great place to stay. Our balcony was front to the beach. Beach boys are so nice, they are really poor but they talk to you with friendly voice. Food of... More

Jacaranda beach resort is notably very well run, the facilities were amazing from the pools to the tennis court, and the gym too. The staff were kind and very friendly. They responded fast when we needed something and didn't hesitate to help when we looked stranded or a little confused. The food was great, delicious choices and a wide range.... More

Despite, the bad road..i really enjoyed this place. Its so homely,quiet and peaceful. Not to mention the diet..amazing.

For the pool, the management... More

I stayed at this paradise on 27.02.2016 for 2 nights. The entire stay was something I will cherish for a long time. First, I was warmly received at the gate and funny enough, the first guy I met knew my name. I asked him how comes he knew me and he said "this is what we do" and I told... More

wonderful staff, beautiful scenery with the white sandy beaches a few metres from the rooms, spacious rooms with great A/C. long distance to cover by road from Mombasa, 1 1/2 hours (crazy!), but less than an hour from Malindi airport. The food was amazing, 3 different pools to swim in that looked great! I would love to go back here... More

I booked my accommodation via Bonfire Adventures who assured... More
