Having stayed at White sands in Mombasa , this is a very poor second . Firstly the Park is not a accessible as it has been in the past due to the Lake being extremely high . You are not able to go to all areas due to this , which makes the USD 90 per day quite high, this was not conveyed to us at the time of the booking.( I know this does not really concern the hotel - but they should advise )
The hotel is comfortable and basic amenities and toiletries are provided . Lunch / dinner was not bad - but the service is seriously lacking, slow and not the right order is delivered Breakfast was another story I was offered a ' green ' egg for breakfast - only after I pointed out that the egg is actually bad - did the chef take notice ( after trying to cook the egg !!)
While checking out we were given the wrong bill . So a series of errors did not make for a very pleasant stay.
At present moment I cannot recommend the Park and Hotel , if the service issues can be sorted it can make for a pleasant stay
