Booked a Villa for a week, Had a great time. Its just the perfect getaway for friends as you have a whole house to yourself. The facilities are also well maintained. Though I wish they had WIFI through out the hotel. All in All, I was very pleased

Located outside Malindi the location is good. The facilities are good with a large respectable swimming pool. Located next to the beach. The villas are well kept, clean and spacious. Our booking had some confusion since we booked through an agent or an individual villa manager.

Best things about resort: Swimming pools, Gardens, Adjacent to Indian Ocean and white sands When we arrived at the resort, we were given room #125. Unit #125, however, 1) lacked a functional air conditioner, athough the outside temperature was 91 degrees F; 2) there was no hot water; 3) the toilet didn't work, so the turds stayed in it; 4)...

Karibuni Villas personnel were really friendly and helpful and they tried to make you feel comfortable. Their variety of different foods in restaurants were not that wide, but it is kind of understandable, when most of people were cooking their meals in Villas. Really nice and friendly African people and they are doing a good job. We liked our stay...

“corner cottages are better as they are a little away from the pool but close enough to walk to so the noise from the pool would not disturb you.”
