Was traveling with friends for a weekend and everything from the airport transfer to the check in was handled in an exemplary well. The rooms were nice, the suite had a jacuzzi. The best part however was the service from the staff, very warm, friendly and knowledgeable not forgetting the food too. A return is definitely on the cards.

Had a short stay at OBR&S and I am still happy with the overall experience. Harvey the manager called ahead of our arrival to ensure we were okay and yo confirm they were expecting us. The rooms as usual were immaculate, the meals and service were top notch. I'm yet to find a hotel to beat it in Malindi. Kudos...

The 1.3km road leading to the hotel is terrible but it seems they now try and patch up a stretch, but that's the only thing bad about this hotel. The ladies at reception are very friendly and always try and make you feel at home, as a matter of fact, the guys & girls in the pub/dining room as well...

This is one of Malindi's best kept secrets. I stayed at the resort for two days. Although I was on a business trip, I loved it and will definitely visit again. Its perfect for honeymooners or just to get away for RnR. Friendly and professional staff, who take every detail into account. The rooms are overly comfortable and they have...

Wow. Breath taking. Gorgeous. This is what was going through my head when I first walked into this place. I had know idea where I was spending my weeked in Kenya, so I did not know what to expect, and it wasn't certainly this. I could have been on a tropical island for all I knew. From the palm trees...

A group of six ladies is very hard to please but this place certainly did! The warm and welcoming staff were exceptional and really went out of their way to make it a memorable stay. For those who enjoy architecture, the hotel views are breath of fresh air especially in the evenings. We were all very pleased with our stay...

We truly enjoyed the few days at the Ocean Beach Resort. Lovely service poolside as well as in the bar in the evening. Wish the beach bar/restaurant would be open in the evening too as it's a breezy location to chill out after a day in the sun.

Roberto M, Proprietario at Ocean Beach Resort & Spa, responded to this review

Hello from Malindi and thank you very much for your kind review. Usually the beach bar and restaurant is open in the evening, but due to heavy evening winds of the season we have been forced to keep it closed for the time being, it will be reopened in August. Our clients can anyway enjoy the evening breeze dining on...

Last year, in August 2012, my son celebrated his second birthday.
