I enjoyed my swimming on a saturday afternoon in this Beautifully Garden Hotel overlooking the Beach. Was quiet and Peaceful. The pool was clean and large enough. I ended the day with a well served cup of Expresso coffee from the Restaurant. I recommend it to people who need a Quite & Peaceful place.

Stayed here on a business trip to Malindi. I do enjoy the rooms, service and food. I miss a gym, not that easy to run outside in the morning. Does claim to be 5 star, so would expect this facility. Very spacious and well designed rooms. Wi if is poor, as a business traveler very important requirement.

The Gym is one of the facilities that will soon be opened at the hotel, the WiFi unfortunately does not depend from us and our provider (the only one available) lets us very much down. They are currently laying finer optic all over the town and soon we will be able...

Having stayed here before in 2014, I was happy to see that the property is still well maintained, well appointed spacious rooms, first class bed linens, amazing spa facility, breathtaking scenery, tasty food and amazing customer service. I'd...

The facility is beautiful and has immense potential though this is not being fully utilized. Despite reserving way in advance, rooms had been overbooked and we had to wait quite a while to get to the room. The food was not great especially the buffet selection- rather drab and lacking creativity and variety. Ala Carte was a better option in...

What a wonderful stay at Ocean Beach. I can see why this has been wired as one of the best hotels in Africa. 5 stars all the way the staff is fantastic and the food is exceptional. Nothing was to much trouble. I can highly recommend this place.

For me it was an unforgettable experience, great people, nice entertainment, delicious food. Clean swimming pools. I spent here the whole of Easter and I swam until I couldn't swim any more. It is indeed a majestic place to be.

Wonderful ambience, great food, great entertainment. Just improve the strength of wifi in the rooms and entertainment options for the children, such as board games, boat rides and beach games like volleyball, snorkeling, wind surfing, equipment to build sand castles, etc
