The hotel is small and has a familial atmosphere. We arrived by plane in Mombasa and, with the transfer bus to the hotel. Already alone the way is worthwhile and you get impressions of the country and people. We were given a friendly welcome and brought to our room. The room was huge with a huge king size bed. There is a free wireless internet access, although this unfortunately not always work. Each day the room was cleaned very cleanly and except, that we twice at the front desk for new towels questions had, everything was well done! Most guests ... came from Germany, Italy, France and there were a lot of polish guests there. read hotel review

    A large room with a huge king size bed with mosquito net, stairs in the room, the bathroom is. No tv but honestly, who needs such a thing in such a place :-) Air-conditioning eund telephone available. Clearly, it is no longer the newest, but absolutely clean!

  • Gastronomy

    There was a restaurant outside with roof. There was every day fresh food and despite, the part of only 20 guests were there was always enough! In the morning, there was a lot of 'british breakfast' but also fresh fruit, rolls ham, cheese, jam etc. (the bananas food!) For lunch and dinner there was always varied food, fish and meat dishes and an area, where every noon and evening different pasta and pasta sauces gave (italian management clear :-) ) but there is also an african 'corner' which is well worth it (i almost only of which fed) Before lunch and dinner at the whole service crew sang and pounded, which we always found very nice. Drinks were brought. Wine and beer is included in the room rate. We have every evening tip and tried every something to give (so alternately every evening somebody else) the polish and italian guests believe that this is not necessary, because it is all-inclusive, but if you know, what the people deserve, you can quiet a tip on installation-count.

    The staff was always friendly and helpful. Particularly to praise were the waiters and cooks, the always nice with one to talk (tip: learn a few phrases swahili, the people are like small children!) and the two animation guys Robert and abus gave a lot of effort although i think you are being exploited (get a salary, but only eat and drink and possibly the opportunity have to be 'training'.) This italian manager of the many omitted, was only twice in sight. His sister has the coconut Village run. This was also for us germans guests nice.

    Every day there was water aerobics, and botja played. From and to was volley ball was played. However, we have except for botja never played or joined in. We were diving, in an italian restaurant, the on-site diving center,. He should the billgste his, but us and two french women quite ripped off. Not recommended. We were at the end of march in malindi so you with the diving almost didn't see, and probably 5-7 metres. But there is also a dive centre at the sister hotel, just ask.

    The distance to the beach is simply great! We had from our balcony (view pool) also the possibility to the sea to look and also people, a room with garden view, walk maybe 1 minute walk to the beach. The beach was very nice, but the longer we were there the less guests were there and thus the beach was not really of a grass cleaned, but it didn't really bother us. Well, the beach boys are annoying but if you friendly clear, that you don't want anything, they let you in peace. We never made a trip, so i can not comment. We were once to food in the ' slums' invited, everything was great with the Tuk-tuk folded! (one should definitely bargain!)

    The service is overall very good. All of the staff can english and some italian. German is only fragmentary spoken. Who in a country with english as an official language vacation power, should not complain about, that the waiters not can speak german.

    The pool was cleaned every morning. Currently concerns two young men ( abduhl and moody ) both during the day (water games, wasserärobic, Boule, table tennis), as well as evenings for entertainment. The evening animation took usually only an hour and takes fun as long as you're getting into.

    The hotel has it's own guarded hotel beach. Many palm trees donate there shade. Due to low tide and high tide, it was not the whole day the ' badewannenwarmen ' sea to splash around. Who difficulties with seaweed has, should only the clean and well maintained hotel pool use. The way from the higher hotel beach until to the sea is play area for boys. She remember the tourists because of the fact, that one in Afrika and very lots of people less earn in a month, as the europeans for one day hotel pay. Whoever fusses about it, should vacation in Mallorca and not in a developing country...

Beautiful small hotel complex, with sharpened staff! Unfortunately, we can this hotel not recommend, since the small beach (90 meters loud tour operators) from dead seaweed flooded was, it smelled and only from beach boys swarmed, from 'bad' no trace. Furthermore still negative for us was unfortunately the Italian management. The manager ran the whole day apparently good (the expression derived, spoken with us German not) through the small complex and had probably nothing better to do, when from early until late employee and times guests to harass. As German we unfortunately had often problems, Italian guests accordingly treated differently. ... A shame, Gastronomy -staff and the size of the area were top. In short: Beautiful small complex, top gastronomy -staff, however no recommendation, as beach everything other as it was nice and the resident management just annoying was (for us, as well as also for other German guests). read hotel review

It is a small hotel with therefore not too many guests, however form Italians the majority. Nevertheless it was relatively quiet, which we enjoyed have, from the entertainment in the evening apart. The goods clearly too loud and sleep was difficult, if you was not there. Very open, the behavior of the Italian ' manager', the truly the locals staff constantly guests reprimanded. This, in turn, force pleasant on. read hotel review

The most beautiful hotel on Malindistrand! The entertainment but it was awful and very loud. Everything was in Italian. The announcements and the music were so loud durgeführt, that you have your own word not Mer understand could. We had to shout at us to communicate. Corrected by the' manager' did not happen. He ran rather very influential on the complex and bullied the gardener. By the new hotel management the image much to negatives. It was our dream hotel, but not now. read hotel review

    The food was what the quality and taste regards excellent. It was lunch and evening à la carte, salad fruits and desserts were at the buffet arranged. Italian, european and african was always to the selection. For breakfast you had the agony of the choice between pancakes, omelets and eggs, bacon and sausages, as well as various jams and honey. Everything was very clean and pleasantly furnished. The atmosphere for the food, always very pleasant, it was already a little bit informal atmosphere with the one in any case feel more comfortable.

The cleaning of the rooms went completely unnoticed but very thorough and efficient, also here there was not the slightest to complain about.

    The hotel is about 150 kilometers south of Mombasa directly at the beach There was the possibility in the attached neighboring hotels various souvenirs to buy, but at the beach at the vendors is a lot cheaper. In malindi is a visit to the holzfabrik and gewürzgeschäfte recommendable. On our 2 day safari to tsavo east (about 100 kilometer ride) we have on hyenas and rhinoceros everything to face get, however the elephants the main species, which on elephants in different generations to be seen, for us was incredible. We had with a few counted but there were hundreds. There is also the possibility the massaidörfer to visit or to the Deep-sea fishing.

The hotel is recommended. The beach Boys are annoying. You will be observed and you want to go into the water or a walk on the beach, they are without end pushy. Swimming was often not possible due to the unsatisfactory (really disgusting). At low tide there is anyway for hours away. We feel cheated by the guide (ITS). He convinced us, the Safari in dollars to pay. We trusted him (!!). That cost us more 80 €. Who vacation in Kenya power, must be prepared with these things, and above all, that end of begged by staff of the ... hotel to the airport (no joke) and beach boys anyway. Nevertheless one has done everything in our hotel, that us feel comfortable. The framework here you can not change. read hotel review

We had a beautiful relaxing vacation in a cozy and informal hotel, which is under the Italian management. The rooms the two story buildings are in appropriate equipped: A double bed with a mosquito net, small table and two chairs, a fridge, a bit too small wardrobe as well as free safe. Air conditioning and fan were available too, but the air conditioning worked with power supply generator not on. Rooms were clean and each day was the refrigerator with bottled water filled up, which you should use for brushing your teeth. The food was delicious and diverse, meat, fish ..., vegetables and for pasta fans, there was a small noodle bar, where the fresh preparation was made to order. It was a little varied salad buffet and a carefully prepared dessert selection as well as different kinds of fresh fruits. The Friends of bathing in the sea were marred by the beach boys and a walk on the beach without their attachment was usually not possible. In the sea there was a lot of seaweed, bathing shoes-even for those trip to the lying off reef-are highly recommended. Safari trip to one of a national park-best already in Germany over local providers (for example Kenyan adventures & beyond safaris (KABS) or with the beach sellers. Despite the volatile weather an unforgettable vacation. read hotel review

    Rustic nationaltypical furnishing. Dark wooden floors and ceilings, 2 chairs and table, 1 closet with free safe, telephone, fridge ( daily 2 gR. Bottles quiet water ), balcony with a table and chairs. Aircondition on the door, bed with mosquito net and renovated bathroom. Don't forget an adapter or in the hotel borrow. Unfortunately the mattress too hard for my taste and the bed by the wood panelling on the feet not really ideal, if one is large. But all in all very comfortable and clean.

Food was very good. As the hotel is in basic Italian authorities gave it also Italian food. Rooms are well by African standards in good and clean. Staff is very friendly and very helpful. Garden area was very well-kept. The beach is nice and wide, white sand. The Beach Boys were very intrusive. The Safari for Kenya travelers duty. read hotel review

This hotel was really great, I had a great vacation. Only first I was concerned about the number of stars but this was not justified. Except the breakfast was of course not German breakfast everything very, very sweet or typical English. Otherwise the private beach of the hotel is very well maintained and the beach Boys stops away. read hotel review

Very nice small hotel with incredibly friendly staff! We felt very comfortable and safe. The rooms are very large, furnished with the necessities, furnished balcony or terrace. The room was cleaned every day (!). Also when our air conditioning, this was immediately repaired. The staff is always in a good mood and up for a joke. The service in the restaurant and at the pool! The food was great and at the buffet there was a large selection, there was something for every taste. The pool is rather small, but perfectly adequate and cleaned every morning. The hotel's own beach ... was very clean, there were enough beach chairs and shady palm trees. The hotel beach is strictly controlled, so you can drop everything, if you just want to go to your room or lunch to go out to eat. The public beach is a small wooden, unfortunately, there were the beach Boys a bit annoying. With a friendly and no go then but again their way. Unfortunately the sea very much seagrass and algae, which wasn't really appealing for swimming. If you're more sensitive, should be in the hotel pool, or another beach (worth it!) go in the evening there was always a small entertainment program took place, but not annoying, was very funny and amusing and after a half-hour mostly over. We enjoyed the African dances and acrobats at best. Safaris either from Germany book or even in Malindi. We stayed at local and would do it again. The safaris in the hotel are very expensive! In the country and the people involved can is here exactly correct! read hotel review

Discreet entertainment, and due to the constant noise from a wonderful vacation not in a small cozy hotel. Service and cleanliness praise-worthy! The transportation situation to and from the completely satisfied. If you are looking for more than three capacity, a 5-course menu together, must book more stars. The restaurant service at here but five stars. Deposit for safe, hair dryer, adapted plan and beach towels! (More) unfortunately goods operator the bars of the other hotels not free!

    From Patrick, the man who secured our favourite place on the beach every day, to Julius, the Food and Bev Manager, to Bruna, the hotel manager, the staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating. Lovely people who greet you with a huge smile, no matter how many times you see them in a day! The room was always clean - crisp white linen on the bed and clean towels every day.

    The location is excellent for a quick trip into the town of Malindi. Michael, at the excursions desk, is ever willing to assist with advice and suggestions. The local 'beach market' offers all the souvenirs one could wish for, and much cheaper than in the town.

Great hotel for relaxing and feeling. Food was really good and wide. Breakfast limited. Kitchen Hotel in as unsatisfactory. Super friendly and hardworking great staff! Strong Praise. Everything was very clean, but the bathroom needed a renovation. But all in all the 3.5 stars very good. Beach Boys sometimes annoying. Beach was unfortunately very with grass loaded. The fun has a bit. Is however November and early in December Sunday big difference between high and low tide. Swimming only possible during high tide. Best Travel Time January/February. Safari through Thomas and Raimund at the beach book! 100% of the ... overall impression. If you're looking for quiet in a small nice hotel with great service, not much entertainment, and no kids, is well cared for here. No Tv! Great. Feel-good factor 100%. read hotel review

The hotel was already somewhat in need of renovation, but they put much importance to cleanliness. The staff was very friendly and helpful, without 'intrusive' both the quality and taste of the food was very good, as fruit and vegetables from Kenya and therefore the taste of fruits and vegetables. Only 'annoying' component were very annoying the beach Boys, the the splash not really raise the 'joy' the Italian guests. I think I would have the manager apartments the tour operator to certain rules of Miteinaders to remember (and I am talking now not even to conversations on the beach ..., which extends about 100 meters, but also loud midnight conversations in the pool area) without Italian and Dutch it was a very relaxing time, in which we felt very well cared for and looked after are happened! read hotel review
