A green, wonderful oasis for the soul! Everything is with so much love and heart decorated, the you get the feeling, one is' urlaubshimmel' The complex is a pleasure for every botanist and tiefreund. From the smallest inhabitants (dragonflies, käferchen, birds and crocodiles and the impressive turtles, the you feed can) one has always something to see and be amazed. But also for the palate in a very pleasant atmosphere, with private gitarrenständchen, is ensured. By the small number of bungalows was really the possibility, in peace from everyday life to relax. We wish the very friendly, loveley team, it ... with so much heart the guests coach. read hotel review

We had a very relaxing vacation the time really enjoyed in boko boko. The staff were very helpful and funny, we have very much laughed. We were the only guests since it was in the off season and therefore, we had the whole complex for alone what simply a dream was. We would a bit more variety for breakfast be. read hotel review

    Very pleasant, spacious bungalows have a wonderful relaxation. The A/c we didn't required, the fan was enough. In front of the house enough place on the veranda with private pond. Our steward Augustin us spoiled where he could.

  • Gastronomy

    The resort has Boko Boko the: a restaurant with a large palm roof. The cuisine of the Seychelles can't be beat. Always with traditional hand washing through the kind Mapenzie. We have every evening in the Porini eaten, even if the preparation takes a very long time, since there was always freshly cooked. But we were not on the run.

    entertainment there are from time to time in the form of Giriama -dances and drummer. A beautiful, rather small pool invites for a bath in a separate part of the bungalows. The new year's Eve party was a blast! However the connection is not ideal. You have to come up with something.

    At the main street after Malindi, however without noise from the street the Porini is a bit out of the way, however by Matatu, taxi Pikipiki or within easy reach. However on foot a bit far away from the beach.

As always a special moment, if you from the stressigem flight and transfer The spicy scent Afrika's, palmenhaine, exotic plants, the elaborate ways to the accommodation the heart each holidayer higher jump. The bungalows are always clean and lovingly decorated. Particularly the outdoor terrace is a place in the middle of nature with seating And a lot of flora and fauna in the area. The food is rich and of good quality. The staff speaks english and swaheli. The manager comes from Germany and is always approachable and for local talks to have. The integrated pool was cleaned every morning ... and is a pleasant refreshment. The morning breakfast consists of exotic fruit juices, toast, fresh fruit and optional egg dishes (omelets, fried eggs and much more the dinner (dinner) should the guest already in the daytime and for a certain time in the evenings. Tip: the beef (pfeffer steak) is of magnificent quality. The bathroom has always warm water by a thermostat, and the living room has an airco and a ceiling fan. For the animal lovers in the boko boko lots to discover: amongst others such, aldrama -giant turtles, butterflies, lizards to the nilvaran. So my conclusion: every year the boko boko! read hotel review

We enjoyed the relaxing stay in Boko Boko before and after our Safari very much. The friendly helpful staff was taking care of us every wish was fulfilled and was always there for us. The adjoining restaurant offers Boko Boko vegetarian fish and poultry to beef up something for every taste! Small tip: since the food was always freshly prepared, it takes an ever-inclusive African somewhat longer with the order! So just in time (in front of the showers), and then enjoy the evening! read hotel review

We were eight days in Boko Boko, on the whole we found the complex okay. We felt very comfortable thanks to all staff. Also etl damage and complaints were handled directly. However, if we would get more than 2-3 nights stay there would, as it was for longer but to dull and quiet. Stayed in the bungalow number. 3, was very spacious and furnished nicely, but the bathroom was very small, very, very basic and often smelled extremely of sewer, sink and water ran out below. In the other bungalows the bathrooms were much bigger. Things were etl us not ... liked: very little water pressure at the Showers, no matter what time of day inside the bungalow always dark and dimly lit, air conditioning was ancient and of hour long or night firgtened (6.50/day) from, we knew that there are no luxury bungalows, but the simple but have to work. Finally, you pay tight 60 euro night! read hotel review

We had a fantastic time Boko Boko in! A restaurant guests from outside, with which we in one evening conversation arrived, put it aptly: 'you booked a dream!' The first highlight is of course the tropical garden! You walk out of your bungalow and is in the middle of a well-kept jungle. The second highlight is the staff! We felt immediately welcome and during our stay, the long discussions with the staff enjoyed. Very large fun made by German mutual teach us swahili. We were after a few days so well, that we Boko Boko outside of the host Kenyan ... at a happy Laugh about our interest in their own language and were able to escape at the end even all dialogs and successfully price negotiations could lead. Thank you nancy, thank new year's eve, thanks marie, thanks salma-you were great teachers! Third highlight is the wonderful food in the restaurant. Delicious! Our aim during the vacation it was, the african life has to offer, with people conversation to get to see a bit of african culture. Therefor was the Boko Boko ideal. You walk onto the street and go to foot or by bus (matatu) a private to the right or left direction mombasa and malindi is charged in the middle of the african life. Great. Sea and pool were as secondary. The only negatives have already been mentioned in previous reviews: -the shower water pressure was extremely weak. We filled a 1 liter-bottle of water, in order to get the shampoo out of your hair (both long-haired) At night you woke up again and again time on, because cars on the street honking, dogs barking the monkeys scare away or the mosque of the village early in the morning by loud speaker bedded is. The but this will not prevent us from, to come back again soon! Checking-in to the hotel was nice and a holiday full of new experiences. We see our luxurious lives in europe against now with a little different eyes. Our holiday in three words: informative, horizon widening and great! read hotel review
