Spent 4 days at the Blue Marlin hotel with a group of friends and family and ate all our meals at the restaurant --- there was enough variety and options, that we did not see the need to go elsewhere. The restaurant is on Diani beach -- breathtaking view! Breakfasts were buffet style but the rest we ordered ala cart.... More

If you like fresh seafood, then the Blue Marlin is for you. I was so impressed with the king prawns that I had them four times and I had the crab claws twice. The price was great for the quality of the seafood you get. I was also pleased with kind and friendly service we received, especially from Wycleff. Of... More

This restaurant I thought had its good points and bad. The wine was very enjoyable although we had to ask for ice to be placed in the ice bucket in order to cool it and the setting was lovely despite a few lacking service points, one of these being a dirty table cloth presumably as a result of it not...

Our starters took about 45minutes to come out - by this time we were all starving and our cheery mood had been ruined. The oysters were so tiny, they should not even have been harvested at that size. Thoroughly disappointing. Everything fried was dripping in oil and the oil they had used was obviously old so the battered calamari tasted... More
