9.6 Excellent
Pros: The property was very tidy. The food was very good. The staff (Hussein and Sikubali) were amazing, they went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. After 6 days it felt like leaving a second home. We also got a free upgrade and had an entire villa to ourselves. Overall a very good experience and will definitely be going back.
Cons: Honestly, nothing. It’s perfect for people looking for privacy and relaxation

Cons: The place is exceptional with a topnotch decor and a 5 star score. The staff are amazing, such lovely and professional personnel. I had severe allergies and the hotel did everything to feed me on all levels. So grateful to the dedicated chef who went his way to serve me great food. Sikubali is a kind and bubbly chap who always brings out a smile on the guests faces. The managers Hussein and Roberto are customer oriented and so is the office staff, the maintenance guys and the housekeeping staffs. I had a fantastic holiday thanks to the staff, the ambiance, the location and the quality of services provided. I highly recommend the hotel and I also look forward to staying with you again.. Regards Beatrice
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our stay at Leopard Point can only be faulted by the fact that it was too short - and that’s on us. For that reason we intend to come back and stay longer. I particularly want to extend my sincere thanks t to the staff at Leopard Point, specifically Hussein, Sandra, Sikubali and Roberto who were extremely helpful and ensured we had the friendliest service and most comfortable time at this gorgeous ocean-front resort. I highly recommend lunch or dinner by the stone terrace overlooking the ocean, coupled with a glass or two of Prosecco.
Cons: N/A

We ate in the restaurant a couple of times and the food and service were excellent. There was a small pool next to our room which we had to ourselves, there is also a bigger pool next to the beach. There is a small private beach with very comfortable sun beds. I really have to compliment all of the staff (at reception, housekeeping, in the restaurant and at the beach), they were so friendly and helpful!

7.5 Good
Pros: BREAKFAST -EGG BENEDICT !
Cons: THE SEA .
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great pool for children in the new area
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The all inclusive package was brilliant! Animation team was also on point
Cons: On arrival we paid the amount displayed on booking.com, and no complain was made as we were given a receipt as well. On the day of check out we were asked to pay extra because the dollar rate had gone up, this was a negative display because there was no prior notification. On top of that, you are not alerted when your package is over during the last day but you are just served with a cheque later during check out. Maybe just improve on communication.
7.4 Good
Pros: I really enjoyed our stay. However, having also visited resort south ( Diani), I found the beach left a lot to be desired. The resort is a good place to stay if your are interested in just the resort and doing nothing else. If you want to spend more time on the beach or I. The ocean, I would go somewhere else.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Awesome breakfast with fantastic restaurant staff, always available to serve . Spacious modern rooms with classic swahili furniture. Bathroom was spacious Well equipped with modern facilities Excellent room service Quiet place Option to sample hotel next door meals giving a warm neighbourhood feel Value for money Location, near Malindi airport

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very friendly and went the extra mile to make sure i felt at home

6.3 Good
Pros: Friendly staff, good food.
Cons: Beach not ideal, generally property quite old.
7.1 Good
Cons: we were served dinner yesterday with maggots in the vegetables. verrr disgusted
6.3 Good
Pros: The staff were absolutely amazing! Now I am generally poor with names but I came out of Dreams of Africa with a list of names to remember. Chef Ali, Doctor, Maryanne, Denice, Constance, Raphael, Yvonne. They were the stand outs for me. It was nice talking to them and getting to know their stories. They may be the sole reason why I would go back to Dreams of Africa.
Cons: There's too much confusion at the hotel. The reception gives you half info, doesn't communicate to the house keeping staff (our welcome basket was removed even before we had settled down!). The Jacuzzi in our room didn't work and by the time we left, hadn't been repaired. The WiFi was down till the last day of our stay. The hotel itself needs care, termites are eating away at the wooden barriers in the restaurant, the faucets are old and chipped. To be honest, if it isn't for the waiting staff, I wouldn't go back to this place ever again. It wasn't a relaxing experience for me.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: Area was well designed, clean and beautiful, staff was heplful and friendly.
Cons: Bed was too tough and air conditioner didn't work sufficiently - temperature was too high although we put it on the lowest level.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly and competent staff, extremely helpful yet never intrusive. James in F&B department was my favourite one..
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: The spa! The friendliness of the restaurant staff (apart from the chef). The pools. The A/C.
Cons: Overall this was quite a miserable experience. We arrived excited only for the guard to shout rudely at our external taxi driver as he didn't know where to park. On check-in, we were given quite a very room smelling disgustingly of urine and after some rude dismissals by the reception staff, I spoke with booking.com customer service, which managed to convince the managerial staff and we were given a better room. Thank you booking.com customer service, we were actually very ready to leave at the time. They said the room was foul-smelling because of a wedding party. (??) I had read lovely reviews of the chef on trip advisor, a large number of reviews saying he can make lovely food requested even with short notice so I thought not to bother him early in advance. When we arrived, we informed him we were vegan and very open to whatever he could make. He said there's a pasta station in every meal so we mostly had that for dinner every day. On only one afternoon he specifically came to ask us what we would like to eat and that was apparently only because there was another family he had been tending to that needed the same requirements for that mealtime. The next day he said 'oh thank god you aren't having lunch with us' and breathed a huge sigh of relief, after which he never asked us our plans nor our ideas for meals. Which we found rude considering he was doing so for all the other families. I really do not want to pull the racism card here but there is something really fishy going on with him. He was so so rude to us till the point where my mother didn't even want to come down for dinner (for what? just pasta for the umpteenth time? to look at the rude chef?) Chef Ayaz, please treat all your guests the same. Many towels have stains.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were absolutely amazing. Chef Ayaz and his team made sure that all our culinary expectations were exceeded. The Christmas and News Year's dinners were of the highest quality, variety and presentation. All the staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and part of the family. The rooms were spacious and clean. Our kids loved spending their time in the rooms and especially the BIG beds. Pools were amazing - we spent all our time there. Management went out of their way with all guest to make them feel welcome and taken care of. A huge shout-out to Vincent the pool barman, he was a real gentleman and takes care of everyone.
Cons: Main pool is very deep - for families with young children. But the life guards were very attentive at all times. No fault of the hotel - but due to rainy season the river came down and the water was brown and full of seaweed - thus we could not swim in the sea. Spa treatments are not 5* but the prices made it worthwhile and it gives you some time just to relax away from the kids. Take note there are no televisions in the rooms. WiFi in the rooms and around the public areas was frustratingly bad - it needs an update urgently.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: All the staff were very welcoming. Rooms are sparkling clean .food is different every day with a different theme for all nationalities .the animation team is excellent keeps everyone entertained that's including the young and elderly generation. They also allowed us to stay past our checkout time for free because our flight was in the evening .overall the place is awesome .
Cons: Everything was super ❤❤❤
10.0 Excellent

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Food was great throughout my stay. Staff very helpful and especially dietary staff. Everyone did an awesome job.
Cons: No television and iron and had to upgrade for Tv and ga never received an iron. Hope on my next stay you will upgrade all rooms with TVs and iron.
6.7 Good
Pros: On the beach which was lovely, and the dream pool was very nice. The gala dinner was very good and the staff were mostly very friendly, especially the senior staff.
Cons: The heckling and hassling from the public side of the beach was horrible; the main pool was very tired; some of the staff were over friendly; pool staff didn't seem to realise that the hotel was there for the benefit of the guests and not the staff!! Food when the hotel wasn't full was grim. After the first night I asked for a softer mattress as I woke up with very sore back and neck, and was told I would get one, but it never showed. Finally, it seemed that bar staff spent more time OUT of their bars collecting things than serving drinks in the bars. Nit picking by a former hotel owner....
5.4 Okay
Pros: Staff + food were nice
Cons: Room was very unclean and had an awful smell of wetsuits. Had mould all over the mirror and shower head was dirty
10.0 Excellent
Pros: THE BEST FOOD ON THE COAST BY FAR

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Management/staff very friendly and helpful
Cons: More information on your Webb site... Especially costs of rooms per persons staying in same room
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The lodge is located in front of the beach, you can hear the sounds of the ocean from any spot. Amazing. The food was good and the staff was incredible.
Cons: I think working on the toilets and the room furniture could give help refreshing the look of them. The lodge is very cool as it is, but some beutification works would hurt.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The location is stunning and the staff delightful. It would have been nice if there was a boat trip option
7.5 Good
Pros: Beautiful property with palm trees saying in the breeze, a nice pool, good food, nice lounge area, sweet little thatched roof bungalows. Very chilled, quiet, low key, no loud music. Right on the beach, although a high retainer wall elevates you above and away from it. The spa is quite nice with a lovely attendant, though it is quite expensive. A free tuk-tuk tour around Malindi is also available with an excellent guide.
Cons: Some consideration for comfort must be made. The mattresses and pillows are hard as a rock and have thrown my back out. The beach lounge chairs do not adjust upright, so you’re forced to lie down the entire time. On the weekends, they reserve all lounge chairs by the pool (by putting towels on the lounge chairs and yelling you they’re reserved) for non-resident visitors. Absolutely unacceptable to prioritize non-resident visitors over residents. To no fault of the Club, note the windy seasons on the Kenyan coast. It was full gale wind the entire time, leaving you sand swept with your book ripped from your hands. Very unpleasant time of year for lounging/swimming, unless you’re into kite boarding. The tide is quite noticeable here, very low about 50m out, then right up to the retaining wall. Lots of seaweed. The beach boys all along the coast are also harassing to the full extent possible. They even poke their heads over the retaining walls to harass you while you’re trying to relax. More security could be provided by the Club. Also note there’s no TV in the room, or wifi outside the lobby/lounge area, but this is quite nice to get a break from the outside world.
7.1 Good
Pros: The rooms have a lovely view overlooking the sea. Good pool
Cons: No wi-fi in rooms.

3.8 Mediocre
Pros: The staff were helpful.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: My brother and I enjoyed the peace and quiet the resort provided. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the rooms were kept clean not to mention how spacious it was especially at the lounge area outside each room, it offered privacy for each guest. Loved the evening performance from the local talents. The fan and AC helped in maintaining comfort in the rooms as malindi gets quite hot.
Cons: The evening buffet was underwhelming as it lacked variety, the food available was however delicious. The kitchen needs to be a bit more organized though, on two occasions we went to have our meal and found some menu items depleted, which meant they didn't account for all guests or under budgeted for it.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The quiet, relaxing conducive environment.
Cons: wifi access in the rooms
