Let me start with the best part, which is the hippo pool right in front of the bar, the Resort is an average resort, we stayed in the standard room (room 42). The bed is comfortable, room is small but cozy, but never triple share the room. The bathroom was the big disappointment, it was really small also though it was clean it did have a unclean feel (like a low end resort).
Do not expect much with food either, basic buffet composed of a couple of veggies, and expect them to be repeated, (we ate spinach for all the 4 days). Though they had a lot of Indian cuisine but the taste just did to hit the mark.
Also since this resort is not in the Mara Triangle (National park part) of the Game reserve expect a package with only one day (or none) in the actual park, which is a much better location compared to the reserve.
Though the Manager Peter was very helpful and polite the same cant be said for some of the other staff especial the reception, who was uninterested. The Library and the sting area are good and comfortable
