We had planned to go there severally. Finally managed. The owner, Guddy, is quite a lady....she kept my contacts even after disappointing her previously by not showing up. Nway, the island is about 35kms from Malindi. We were really glad to have used Guddy's cab driver as he knows the place well. He doubled as a tour guide n would... More

This is most relaxing environment in Malindi that I have visited a couple of times. They got the best of sea food, very ideal for lunches as well overnights for individuals that prefer to stay away from the hustles and bustles that come with big towns

Nice place. To get there, you drive through the salt exploitations which is funny to see. When you come, Safari, very funny and nice guy, will entertain you while "sailing" you to the island.

We visited based on people comments but it was a big disappointment. The beach is really quite ugly compared to other beaches nearby. The restaurant was good. Nice facility and a lot of food although you do pay for it. Fixed menu 2500ksh per person excl drinks. So go there only if you want to eat a lot and don't... More

One of the most beautiful places I've encountered during my travels in Africa! Don get confused by "Robinson Crusoe" - The other restaurant on the same island. They are just using their name, but can't compare! Robinson island is not just an amazing restaurant - set in a beautiful remote scenery - it's a hotel and a perfect place to... More

I have been here at least 6 times. I usually do not like seafood but I had the best red snapper in my life and a bowl of prawns that made me not want to wash my hands
