Blue Marlin is a small family run hotel. Set in the most beautiful part of Diani Beach, Blue Marlin is perfect for anyone looking to relax in a quietly arranged beach setting.

Perched on a small hill overlooking the Indian Ocean and pristine white beach, the hotel is surrounded by lush greenery. These provide an idyllic backdrop for long daytime lunches and fine dining in the evening breeze.

The spacious rooms designed in minimalistic coastal Swahili style, air conditioned and with large terraces provide an exclusive ocean view through the flourishing crowns of the palm trees.

    I stayed in this hotel with 3 other girl friends and it was absolutely beautiful. We had a quadruple sea view room a few feet walk access to the beach. The staff, from the front desk to the waiters to the pool maintenance were all extremely accommodating, polite, and helpful. Breakfast was amazing (Tip: if you happen to come across an old dog called Zaza, make sure to feed her some pancakes, that's all she'll eat :) Oh, and you're never short of instagramabale spots across the hotel so get your camera ready!

    The hotel is quite. Family's, couples, etc... it would've been nice to have some night time activity (music, dancing, fire place...) but that's just my opinion. There are a lot of people that would appreciate the relaxing and quite aspect of the hotel. It just wan't for me & my girls :) We ended up going to other places though

    The venue is awesome! Secure, the food was good access to the beach perfect. The mattress and pillow was great. I loved the presence of a fridge and a functional safe. The manager/owner was responsive.

    The staff at the reception kept harassing us about check out at 10am from arrival till this morning. The bathrooms have no shower caps, rooms have no blankets the weather is very chilly. The swahili bed was too high for my short self, and the fear of falling off was real. There are no designated smoke zones so the restaurant had smokers puffing away.

    We were not hotelguests, but we came here everyday to enjoy the breeze and of course the great food. The staff is ever so nice. The owner and his wife very friendly the manager a nice guy.The price of the food is compared to Europe cheap. And our compliments to the chef because he is very good. The wine is great,not like the "vinegar" you get elsewhere f.i. at one of the most praised places at the beach where the food is expensive and not at all tasty) Our waitress Diana (bright eyes we call her) knows exactly what we like. So resuming: GREAT PLACE

    Nice hotel with great location and amazing beach. Friendly staff and even the dinner at the restaurant was good.

    The only missing thing was the WiFi which was not working well.

  • Karin

    Nice Location, beachfront and good sun-laying beds. Especially good for Kite-surfer.

    The restaurant is too pricey, definitely recommended to eat outside, taste was good but far to expensive and very small portions!
