I had to travel with my 3 month baby on my work trip and they were very accomodative.

Friendly staff, beautiful pools, great food, great proximity to the beach, great conferencing facility.

All is probably reccomend is more activities for children

Good location though the murram road to the hotel could do with some work, thankfully just a short distance from the tarmacked road

The check in was quick as there was no huge group checking in at the time.

The master rooms are spacious with an open balcony for relaxing. A/C works well, bed is massive and beddings are immaculate. Shower works well with minimal effort to get it right. TV has enough stations to keep one entertained in the room.

The a la carte dinner came quickly and was sumptous, grilled fillet a must try. The breakfast buffet was also good with good variety.

Huge olympic size pool for adults and another smaller pool where children can swim supervised by adults.

The beach is spotlessly clean but not your typical beach that opens up to the ocean naturally, there's some distance to the ocean and it looks dirty due to the Athi Galana river draining into it on the right, also very strong waves when I was there, not for swimming for sure.

Overall a very nice place for a romantic getaway because of the serene atmosphere. i'll definitely be going back

This was my first time to the Ocean Beach Resort & Spa. It came highly recommended by a friend who has been visiting the venue from Switzerland for the last 5 years. I haven't spent much time in Malindi and was excited to check it out.

My friend and I came for the day - to enjoy lunch, dinner and a Spa package, right at the start of the Easter holiday. We enjoyed some superb food, and honestly the Prosecco goes down quite well when accompanied by the ocean breeze flowing in from the wide panoramic beach views. It's very serene.

After lunch and a little work, I went to the Spa. Unfortunately my Spa experience was not up to par with the food quality and service. For a five star hotel, it was quite disappointing. I ordered a manicure & pedicure expecting a treatment as luxurious as advertised but receiving something truly basic. Where the food had been excellent and the food staff very friendly and professional, the two Spa attendants seemed eager to rush through my services as they were finishing up services with my friend.

To explain further - my manicure and pedicure was done haphazardly outside by the pool. I sat awkwardly on a lounge chair as the services were hurriedly done. There were no basins of hot water to dip my hands in, nor was there a wash down or scrub to exfoliate (as is traditionally done). My hands were simply wiped down with a damp cloth, clipped, filed and painted. My feet were clipped, washed, scrubbed and painted but the cuticles were cut painfully close and (again), I had to sit awkwardly on a lounge chair as the service was being done.

The Spa experience was odd, and very expensive for the poor quality. I shared the experience with my friend and Fredrick - the manager on call. Both agreed that my experience wasn't up to the hotel standards and Fredrick offered a redo of the service (by the same two ladies on the next day).

Unfortunately we were leaving for Watamu the following day and Fredrick's offer would not work with our planning. I would have preferred a refund as I could have done a better job for myself. Additionally, once bitten twice shy!

If you get a chance to go, please don't miss this hidden gem. Enjoy the food, the views, and the beach but please save your mani/pedi money for drinks instead.

The staff were so friendly and fast. They made our stay so lovely despite the period being a busy period and the hotel being full during our stay. We did not feel ignored. We enjoyed the three pools and jacuzzi. The massive open spaces and proximity to the beach also added to our fun stay.

I loved everything about this hotel in Malindi. The staff were very friendly right from the reception to the rooms, at the swimming pools, The spa and the restaurants.

Their cottages have large airy rooms with fresh clean beddings. Well decorated and with showers that emit a good spray of water.

We were welcomed with a cool soothing drink upon our arrival and escorted to our rooms on their motorized carts. The hotel is built on spacious grounds and had some old trees that are flowery.

The food was fresh and adequate. They have several restaurants but no gym.
The beach is expansive , clean and not crowded. I loved its gold colours and the smooth sand.
Will definitely be back there for a private visit
