My Kenyan wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in May 2012. We booked it after a lot of research online and based on the website photos it looked smart, clean and upmarket. We were in Nairobi to visit family and we asked whether we could invite a small no of guests for a poolside dinner, but were refused permission by the management 'because they had never done this sort of thing before'. The 2 bedroom unit we had was very average, and certainly did not reflect the photos on website. Our gas cooker barely worked, the cutlery and crockery supplied was so sparse we even had to buy our own tin opener. We were charged 700kes for 1 broken tumbler (they sell the whole set for that in the Nakumatt) Our electricity bill was ridiculously high for 4 days. The location proved a bad mistake too. It took literally hours to get anywhere because of nightmarish traffic jams on Ngong Rd, we almost missed our plane when leaving. All in all, a big disappointment.
