Had originally booked to stay for three nights but left after one night for a far better hotel, also in Malindi. Poor maintenance - TV and fridge didn't work. No curtain in bathroom and could be seen from outside walkway. Room was dirty with ants, large lizard and other insects. Poor security - non-existent for an area where security is... More

Pros: Good location, nice pools, lovely beachfront. The staff was excellent. Reasonable prices for food/drinks. Cons: Run down, shower was always backed up, air conditioning did not work especially well.

This is billed as a resort style Hotel, which it is in a way. Its big, the Hotel grounds stretch 800m to the beach, and are decorated by very big concrete animals, it also has a good restaurant which provided the best food I had in Malindi, and the staff are friendly. However the rooms are a little run down,... More

I can imagine this hotel being fairly festive, but the Somalia situation and other factors lead to it being sadly quiet while I was there. After a long day of travel to get to Malindi, I was slightly furious about having to move rooms twice because the showers weren't working. That said, the lady at reception was very helpful. The...

My Husband and i visited Eden Roc for a weekend gateway, the first thing that we noticed was that it was under new management, The Characteristic Monumental structure adds extra intrigue to this hotel, The terrace has the perfect ambiance for lunch dinner or for a conference overlooking the Indian ocean, with a very rich bird life treat.

Came here for business conference. I was expecting it to be nicer but the rooms are very basic. No TV, there's AC but you can't adjust the temp, nets over bed, no hot water in the shower (at least there wasn't any in my room), bathroom was a bit worse for wear. The hotel is clearly aging but you can... More

Terrible, do not stay there. The staff were rude and attitudinal and could not care less, the rooms were so old and dated, expensive. The hotel was empty, needless to say we left after 1 night.
