I stayed for two days and i still wanted to stay some more. The ambiance, hotel location to the beach, entertainment, food all excellent! The pool is suitable for children to swim in. The staff is very friendly and cooperative. I will be back again.

Enjoyed a staff retreat and planning at this facility. The ambience was fantastic, the ocean view and swimming pool were calming. I was here on the eve of Valentine Day and the hotel prepared fantastic dinner for all the guests residing at this hotel. This is a place to visit while in Malindi
