I stayed at the hotel for almost two months and I had a really great time. The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I particularly talked a lot with Steve and Boaz, and they shared good stories and some Kiswahili words. Steve also did an amazingly good job to get my friend on a flight... More

We arrived late at night after a tiresome flight. The grand luxurious reception immediately made us feel calm and relaxed. We were received by a friendly receptionist for a smooth check-in. We were settled into our room within fifteen minutes after arriving. Every single member of the staff was friendly and welcoming, so you feel appreciated as a guest. Our... More

I found this hotel like all on here and have to say it was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. The location was perfect, rooms very well appointed and had the best massage I have ever had - now I'm not kidding it was actually that good. The Swedish one followed by a nice sauna and steam after 6 days... More

To cut to the chase with regards to the title of my review. We used the hotel taxi (as suggested by concierge) to visit a local restaraunt . We... More

The security detail, the waiters and waitresses were polite, respectful to everyone. The facilities in the Hotel were just amazing, for once i thought i was in Dubai in... More

Well appointed hotel, nice rooms, very clean. Hotel has great facilities and wonderful staff, so friendly. Breakfast serves on the fifth floor by the pool. Great way to start the day. Not very cheap but is worth it. They have a few restaurants inside, the Thorn Tree downstairs in reception is open 24/7 which is great if you arrive late... More

Had a wonderful stay. We we're a little under the weather and didn't get to check out all of the amenities. There was nobody in the pool and no one using the sauna and steam room. Tailor and Pharmacy nearby. We didnt have time to explore the nearby area but if you need a clean and safe place to stay... More
