I would like to thank Roger and his team for another excellent stay. I am a frequent visitor from the UK. Each visit is always pleasurable.
Driftwood is a small resort south of Malindi in an idyllic setting with views across the Indian Ocean. There is a private beach, separated from the public beach by a wall. The private beach is both sunny and shady with plenty of pretty vegetation. There are beach shelters and a waiter service. The beaches and rooms alongside them benefit from a cooling breeze day and night. There is also a swimming pool.
The public beach is nice but full of salesmen! There is often much seaweed over otherwise pristine white sand.
The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. There are no televisions in the rooms I have occupied but there is air conditioning.
There is free WiFi at the main bar/restaurant. I use the Safaricom 3G service.
Food is excellent and varied. Service is unbeatable.
This place is perfect for those who require the warmest of welcomes, basic accommodation, good food, great atmosphere and peace and quiet. If these are your requirements then I cannot recommend this place highly enough. My Shangri-La – paradise!
