The place is really nice, very well located for touring around Malindi. The closest beach is walking distance from the hotel and is the National Park. Although is very beautiful, it is small and a bit crowded (at list when we went).
The place is clean, the rooms are spacious, the food is great. Yet, my main complain is the managers of the hotel. I do not pretend to be hosted with high standards, but yes to be welcomed with a smile (and not with a cigarette in the mouth and a baby crying in the hands...). Even if they provided a good service, the managers were arrogant and noisy. We asked for the possibility of using the internet, and after 3 days they provided us with a stick. After 3 hours of trying why it doesn't work, the manager told me: "ah, so it seems it doesn't have money inside". I mean, she could know that in advance before wasting our time...
In summary: great place, but we really enjoyed much more speaking and mingling with the people doing the service (cleaner lady, the cook, the door man) rather than with the manager...
