For a hotel that is 3 years old, it has a long way to go. There was nothing interesting about the food, dinner tasted like it was recycled. No sanitary bins in the bathrooms. They have no urgency attending to anyone who falls sick, there was a guy who fell sick on Wednesday 20th July and by Saturday 23rd July,... More

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your holiday at Seven Islands Resort. However we would like to respond to your review that we find rather unfair. First of all we would like to mention the health problem of your brother; by our investigations it seems that things went differently from how you describe. On the morning of July... More

Awesome place for a perfect beach getaway.... Everything is just in order from the rooms, pool, food, staff. Being here does really feel at home and will never feel alone with the lovely staff, arranged activities from the hotel i.e water spots, cultural, etc... Will definitely be back and wouldn't mind recommending.

Hated pretty much everything about this hotel,ma part from great location. Very rude staff, the animation team (yes seriously!) are actually really creepy. Reception staff rude and unhelpful. The food was very poor, flies everywhere. Rooms were clean however. But there are FAR better places to stay in Malindi, you don't need to stay here!

Do not stay here, I have stayed in many hotels, lodges and B&B's in Kenya and this is definitely the worst, probably because it is run by Italians and not Kenyans! The staff at reception and the bar are the rudest I have ever encountered, please take a little time to read the Managers responses to the poor reviews on... More

everything was excellent and romantic. i loved it. the only negative was dinner was swahili and i being a local was not in the mood for home food, and the restaurant had only pizza magheritta though the squid we had for lunch was heavenly. the music from the pool was not blaring rather enjoyable as we do not like music
