  • March 2013
We stayed in march 9 days in lawfords resort in malindi. The hotel is very proximity to the center convenient, but in the object itself wähnt you secluded as in paradise. At all few guests, about 35 people with a difference. Boarding school. Background. The atmosphere was very pleasant, no beach chairs occupied-was enough for everyone. The welfare of the guests was hard-and particularly impressive was the tea time at 17:00 hours, everything in white, classic music and selected pastries. From the originally booked deluxe room we were disappointed, for us rather completely normal double room with little space ... for clothes and no refrigerator. Over the travel agent we reached an accommodation in a suite, in which we then our desires fulfilled saw, but we noticed very quickly, that the air conditioning the large suite not sufficiently cool. Even day-and-night operation changed nothing. But all in all, we felt very comfortable, if you from the beach foresees, which only after overcome a dune distance and little welcoming brown water in the beach led. Otherwise the hotel very well maintained and i can the complex in the impressive african style quite good. read hotel review

Lawford's resort Recently renovated hotel in malindi. Large well-kept park with a pool, enough sunbeds, free beach towels, pool bar. The complex extends to the fine sandy beach. In the earlier dünenbereich is also a beach with trucks under firm palmdachschirmen. The beach is very lonely! I stayed in a suite, large living area with a sofa, tv, fridge, a big balcony, also with a sofa, table with four chairs, bedroom with ac, king size bed, bathroom with a shower (a bit small). Food in buffet form. Breakfast was a bit monotonous, but delicious. Dinner varied, partly brilliantly prepared. Guest ... structure: what the age mixed, practically only italians (i was the only not italian guest. Friendly service, helpful as it is in Kenya is used. In a few steps in the town with shops and restaurants (by myself this year not used) by taxi or tuk tuk in front of the hotel. The hotel will undoubtedly be recommended. Negative: high, to high costs for the use of the internet! Also with your own laptop. Conclusion very pleasant, but not cheap. read hotel review

    International offer in buffet form, focus mediterranean fare. Varied evening, finely prepared, frühstücksbüffel somewhat 'boring'. Several bars (1 pool bar, 1 beach bar, 2 bars in the closer property. Everything was clean, for me a bit too high prices for Kenya (almost european standard).

    A few steps to the beach, actually directly at the hotel's garden and verging, about 2 hours to the airport moi in Mombasa. Shopping and restaurants in walking distance, tuk tuk in front of the hotel.
