We arrived after lunch concluded and were met with 'sandwiches', also known as two slices of thick slightly stale bread with a thin piece of unidentifiable meat. The rooms are nothing like what is portrayed on the website. Spartan and tiny. 'Deluxe beachfront'? I think not.
I write this while currently residing at the hotel. Having enjoyed endless power cuts and terrible air conditioning in addition to a New Years meal that would strongly rival the fare served at the orphanage I imagine Oliver Twist resided in. On a serious note, the food is bland and the selection dull. We are currently being buffeted by extreme winds that render the food not only tasteless but also stone cold to boot. The wait staff do not function in tandem with each other having a different concept and understanding of applicable procedures. We have thoroughly enjoyed being displaced from our selected table in favour of how shall we say, more 'popular' customers hailing from non-African shores. My last stay in Malindi was at Kilili Baharini. Whilst the rooms were nothing to write home about, the experience was exemplary. This cost more, and was infinitely disappointing. In a nutshell, don't do it.
