Stayed here on business and was pleasantly surprised. The staff are wonderful and really try to meet your every need. The courtyard area (with pool in the middle) is a wonderful place to kick back after work and enjoy a glass of wine and catch up on the news with your iPad or laptop (free WiFi which actually works!). Rooms are spacious and bathrooms are nice with hairdryer and decent toiletries. You have to pay in cash though so keep that in mind when staying here. I had a room with balcony overlooking the golf course. I would stay here over the Club du Lac for sure.

Being the first time my experience at Roca Golf Hotel has been fantastic. It has gym facilities and very good rooms and within the right location. The rooms overlooking the golf court are marvelous. It’s a great place to be when in Bujumbura. The place is also convenient and is within reach of city centre. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. I also liked their food both breakfast and buffet. I feel the swimming pool is just convenient for sitting around and having a cup of coffee or tea or any drink. In my view its not that convenient for taking a plunge!

Room Tip: rooms overlook the golf court are great!

Mine experience is like most other's: good business hotel, good food and service, and good facilities. First, the staff are very attentive from the front desk to the restaurant. They have a nice gym with new equipment. Compared to the Club du Lac, the Roca has better food and nicer and newer rooms than the du Lac. The Club du Lac has better views and atmosphere including spacious grounds to walk around, although the Roca is a bit closer to the central business district.

I've stayed at Roca Golf a couple of times while on business in Bujumbura and it's the sort of place that gives me the comfort, calm and services to work more efficiently and relax when time allows. The rooms are well proportioned and well laid out, lighting is good, there are plenty of electrical points for those of us with the "electronic tagging" devices of the digital age - phone, laptop, etc. The internet is solid and reliable. The food is good, the breakfasts special, and the staff are all well chosen for courteous care and attention. I'll be back.

Room Tip: I haven't had a bad one but tend to sleep on the gold side of the hotel rather than overlooking...

Truly nice hotel, new and modern, nice big rooms, very clean, and the staff is very professional. The breakfast is wonderful and the common areas are pleasant to be in. The restaurant serves very good food, from the steaks to prawns to fish from the Lake. The swimming-pool is OK but in a courtyard with not enough distance from the hotel buildings, so you feel a bit like in an aquarium... The golf course (which is lovely) is just adjacent and the location is very central in the downtown area. What else do you need? I felt like I was in a nice European hotel. The only strange thing was that due to the mosquitoes, they came to spray your room in the evening - I understand this was a precaution and a nice gesture, but if you are in your pyjamas working on the computer (wifi not too bad but going on and off too often) it's a bit hassle to leave the room as it settles, otherwise you are intoxicated...

Room Tip: All rooms are of equal standard but facing the golf course is much nicer.
