Nice and friendly atmosphere with staff who has a personal and warm style. Safe and close to the beach and the village. Very good budget option and reasonably priced. We are a family with two children, 7 and 10 years. We spent 11 nights at Marijani. We had two spacious rooms next to each other on the second floor (room...

We stayed here for a few days over Christmas and had a really lovely time. The guys who run this place are extremely helpful and friendly; they made us feel very welcome. My 4-year old son loved the pet turtle, dogs, cats and dancing parrots and had more than one giggle with the staff. The rooms were simple, great value...

We stayed at Marijani for 5 nights in December just before Christmas. We arrived after a very long bus journey and our room wasn't ready but they kindly let us use another room to have showers and freshen up. We found the hotel to be very secure, there was always someone watching the gate. The staff were really helpful and...

The Marijani is a very friendly guest house in small village of Watamu near Malindi, Kenya. The room rates are very good and the staff so willing to help the guests. It is set in lovely surroundings near Watamu beach on the Indian Ocean.

We came for the 2nd time at Marijani after 6 months, with some friends. The house is still charming, the garden is OK, the staff is friendly - location perfect very close to the beach. But it is also true that their is a total lack of maintenance: windows broken, one shower not functioning well, and the ceiling fan absolutely...

The hotel is built nicely, but no one is taking care of the upkeep! All the rooms have problems like the shower hanging down, the fan not working, the flush spoilt! We had booked a private two bedroom independent unit with a living room, verandah etc but were given two dingy rooms on the ground floor of the main house,...

We (couple and adult son from Norway) stayed at Marijani week 13/2010. We chose the stay in Watamu because our son had signed on as a volunteer at a project nearby, so we met in Nairobi and spent one week's holiday at the coast. The reception was friendly, our rooms comfortable with proper moskito-nets, OK functioning bathroom (there were different...

The staff is very friendly, a really nice atmosphere, most of the rooms have access to a patio, the rooms are clean, full functional mosquito net, local style and design of the furniture. Breakfast inclusive, dinner on demand. I deducted some points because of the following...

I stayed here for several days, due to a small staff they had to combine a lot of tasks and sometimes needed some patience, but they certainly tried their best. They are absolute thrustworthy, i lost a golden necklace which they found and returned to me - and even when there were problems they tried to do an effort. The...
