Close to the airport. Grubby rooms and poorly managed. Its a non smoking hotel but there were cigarette burns on the bedside table and the whole experience was dire. Asked to change room due to it smelling of cigarette smoke but staff were unsympathetic and unhelpful.

Being from the north coast sibaya has always been a great place to go to dinner or spend some hard earned cash. The hotel and lodge make this casino truly a great place to visit. That coupled with The mangwanani spa makes for a very relaxed couple of days and it's close to everything!

Lucky there was only 2 of us in the room as there would not have been sufficient cupboard space to put our clothing in, there were drinking glasses and mugs missing in the... More
