Contras: Couldnt find any
Prós: The African House Resort is an overwhelming place to stay in Malindi. Located in a very safe residential area, it is the perfect place for enjoying the Kenyan coast. The secluded and very well-...
Contras: Honestly, there is nothing I could potentially criticize.

Contras: Nothing. I wish flights to and from Malindi were on time.
Prós: Antique facilities
Contras: 1. I cannot use the WiFi on my last day. Because the modem or repeater was moved to other place for other guests who came after without my permission. He never informed me about the moving before I ...
Prós: Almost don't want to give a positive review as I want it to be available when I want to book. Extremely lovely.
Contras: The massage experience could have been a little better!
Prós: The villas are few hence the feeling of privacy, tranquility and luxury. I was taken away by the fact that each villa has it's own private swimming pool. The architecture is stunning and various...
Contras: The floor in general, especially the wet areas of the swimming pool and bathroom, could be slippery. Like most floors in most hotels, caution is important.

Contras: Lots and lots of flies end of April disturbing outdoor eating.
Prós: The staff were most pleasant and responsive.

Prós: The whole experience was amazing!
Contras: The food need more variety
Prós: Principle of this resort : one pool, one team with butler, cooker... Dedicated to 4 rooms.
Contras: The food is not worthy of an alleged 5 star hotel. What you want to order is never available even in their small weekly menu where you can choose between two plates. Apparently an expat cooker was ...

Prós: I really enjoyed our stay. However, having also visited resort south ( Diani), I found the beach left a lot to be desired. The resort is a good place to stay if your are interested in just the resort and doing nothing else. If you want to spend more time on the beach or I. The ocean, I would go somewhere else.
Prós: Leaving the premesis
Contras: The staff attitude, lack of management, horrible food
Prós: Nice pleasant staff, professional, efficient & helpful. Rooms are spacious & well appointed, with private balcony.
