I stayed at the royal mara for the first time this past January and it was truly amazing. The game drives are outstanding and getting to see all the animals was a great experience. The lodging itself is top notch and has the great ambience of a lodge with all the modern and luxury amenities one expects from a world class resort. The food was great as well, and I got a bit addicted to their bread made from scratch as well as their soups. Some of the other guests had stayed multiple times and everyone including the staff were very friendly.
