Bewertung #5986172 "Sporting Resort Lamu Road Malindi Kenia" Das Domiziel, wir waren im Appartement Nr 1 untergebracht hat uns sehr gefallen. Der grosse saubere Pool, die Anlage mit viel Beumen und Streuchern alles schön grün. Das nette Personal, Im Haus alles sauber. Die Wohnung selber sehr gemütlich eingerichtet ( Kerzen, Bilder an der Wand, Tepiche usw. ) Küche mit allem eingerichtet was mann zum kochen braucht. Mit fast allem ausgestattet. In der Wohnung fühlt mann sich geborgen, wie im eigenem Zuchause. Mann kann auch in Malindi viel unternehmen und es giebt viele Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Wir waren 5 Wochen, die sehr erholsam waren!

Overall mark given by the renter: 5/5 "E decisamente unottima soluzione per soggiornare liberamente, senza i vincoli degli orari degli alberghi. La posizione è centralissima,lappartamento è pulito, dotato di tutti i confort, in un bel residence, ma non dimentichiamo che siamo in Kenya, e quindi il personale del residence proverà a farvi pagare extra ogni cosa, come ad esempio il cambio degli asgiugamani e la pulizia ogni 2 giorni, che invece sono compresi nel prezzo. Ottima soluzione per una bellissima vacanza." Date 27/09/2010 - Miss roberta g.

Extra information

Blue Marlin building is the most beautiful eye catching rich architectural Moorish style building in town. Set back from the main road by a wide car park, from several steps leading to a very well decorated lobby, with big mirrors and beautiful chandeliers, several black and white safari pictures and photographs of Ernest Hemingway near the bar. I believe this bar could tell the stories of Ernest Hemingway and his friends, hunters and deep sea fishers lived on in this place. There is also a well-equipped Gym, professional coaches to give advice and medical information. -Gym, Yoga, dance, boxing, swimming pool, tennis, mini golf courses available. The swimming pool is set in a manicured mature lush big garden, the friendly pool attendant will set the sun beds at the place you choose, you can also order; soft drinks, fresh squeezed juice, Kenya coffee or cappuccino etc….and lazing around the whole day or be active doing sports like; tennis, table tennis, mini golf, swimming, gym………….
