We were a group of twenty people who spent two days here before we headed to the Maasai Mara to help build a school and then a few days on Safari. This hotel definitely lives up to the Fairmont name. It has nicely appointed rooms, a lovely dining area and a bar/lounge with beautiful art and decor. Spa facilities were also available, although we didn't have time to try them out. The staff was wonderful and the service was top notch. Yes, it is a bit pricey, but that is expected at this level of accomodations.
The only thing that I did not like is that breakfast was included in our trip but we were given a 'bill' to sign off on when we ate. When I questioned the wait staff, they said we didn't have to pay the bill, but still had to sign off on it. I was a little worried that we would have to pay for this on check out, but turns out it was in fact covered. Nice hotel for a pass through, but I enjoyed the luxury tents in the Maasai Mara much better.
