I had an opportunity to stay at the hotel for 5 days recently and the compound (all 64 acres of it I'm told) is massive. It's obviously a theme hotel and quite well done with great consistency. The Safari Park has 5 restaurants, multiple bars, a fairly large pool area that has a lazy river and slide, a couple of stages for performances, and yes a casino. Good thing since the hotel isn't quite in downtown Nairobi.
The grounds were impressively landscaped and well maintained but I wish I could say the same for the rooms. They're clean but definitely showing age with the bathroom fixtures and paint peeling walls. No AC in my room but the weather was fantastic and all I needed was an open window. All rooms also had a generous sized patio you can use to relax (or dry your laundry).
All in all, a decent hotel. Good facilities, friendly staff, a variety of places to eat, clean, and most importantly safe.
