For 30 Euros a night, super bargain ! Jun 29, 2011
The Villas are only a 5 minute drive to the airport ! The are along the beach which makes for a good walk early morning or late evening.

I paid 26 Euros for a single room with the biggest bed i have ever seen in my entire life! They also have a bed outside the room, if it gets too hot inside (See pictures)

They have three swimming pools so you do not have to walk too far from your room for a dip.

It is very close to Malindi town, we would walk if we needed to go into town. Taxis and "tuk tuks" are readily available and you can flag one down at whichever point.

The bathroom was not exactly A1, but it was doable.

Service was excellent, although we never had any meals at the hotel. We would walk down the street to try the different cafes and restaurants, The Old Man and the Sea had excellent food !
The other bed, outside the room, i…
The sunset, it was beautiful !!!!!!

affordable beach escape on the Kenyan coast May 02, 2010
Scorpio Villas is a great place to stay if you have been traveling for a long time and want to kick your feet out. During the low season, you can pay around $40 USD for a very comfortable room with a hot shower and mozzie nets, including breakfast and dinner. The food was spectacular, though I would venture out into town to try some of the local restaurants. The hotel has three pools with lots of comfortable lounge chairs. The hotel has beach access, but the beach itself was not that great... white sand and very warm water, but very dirty. The service varied... rooms were always very clean, and the wait staff works very hard, but the front-desk staff could be unhelpful at times. The internet and phone services are WAY overpriced, use the internet in town if you can. Despite the service, the rooms are still a lot cheaper than similar options in Malindi. Rooms have air conditioning, and hotel has a generator when the power cuts out. Would recommend this place if you are doing the Swahili coast and want more affordable luxury.
