I can't say enough good things about the African Pearl! Jeff and the rest of the staff are fantastic and the rooms are great too. The hotel has a pool, bar/restaurant, two really cute dogs, and two really cute cats. The hotel is very under priced for what you get, especially in Malindi. The rates include breakfast.
