We tried the Tusker (Kenyan) beer and we were hooked! But the quality of their staff and the size of their grilled plates are the real winners. Do go, you will not be disappointed...oh, and they show big football matches on the side of the hotel's wall...

We were a group of 20 and decided to do an afternoon tea by the pool side. First no one to clear the tables, we had to do it ourselves, service after 45 minutes. The pool attendant kept going to look for service staff. The staff at Makuti bar could not serve us inspite of some of us requiring beers!

After whole day around you deserve nice relax, if you want lite snack, barbeque is super, private with original "heating" elements during a night makes good atmosphere. if you are sport fan , you can join bar and watch games on screen, even there is projector that displayed big image on hotel wall. really good idea and organization.
