It's a nice place to stay, however I would keep off the children park because of the vulgar music the DJ plays for kids "Pekejeng" and such rubbish. The MC also should be in adult club, not kids friendly at all. Complaints to the management were also ignored, had to cut short our stay and leave.

i had a good stay at the hotel with my colleagues last year during the Music festival at Kabarak University(a group from the Kenya Utalii College) the Manager was so friendly and welcoming and i had some conversation with him concerning an internship at the hotel. He gave me his contact but unfortunately i lost the same. Since then i have been trying to call the reception for help but no help is offered. they keep on asking numerous question and at last no aid is provided. Please help me reach the Resort manager. the front office department needs some improvement.

These lodgings are fully secure and as much as they were simple the rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. We had our own bathroom with hot water. Complimentary water, a fridge, a big bed and TV completed the room. The on-site restaurant and bar were good. The 25 metre pool was a surprise. The staff were friendly and helpful and the wifi was good.

The hotel was authentic. Nice grounds and a lovely swimming pool. Monkeys playing around the hotel. Used it as a short stop to visit Nakuru National Park. Based outside of town, friendly staff and would recommend it

We stayed at Kivu Resort just before Christmas so it was in full festive mode! Nakuru is a busy bustling city and it was a relief to get into the peace of the Resort itself. Reception is tucked away at the back of the hotel but there were plenty of people on hand to show us the way. All the staff we encountered were courteous, helpful and friendly. All the rooms are bungalows set around a courtyard garden. We stayed in the deluxe rooms. Each room has a small entrance hall wIth wardrobe space. The rooms are basic but clean and functional. The bathrooms were very basic and could do with an upgrade. The rooms would have benefitted from a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities too. The bed was a good size with mosquito nets but the pillows were hard. In addition to the bed there were a couple of armchairs and a small table, a chest of drawers and TV. There was plenty of space within the room for bags etc and the African themed curtains were cheerful and fun. The hotel has a swimming pool and a childrens pool which was set in pleasant gardens. We had lunch by the pool but the wait for our food was lengthy. The pool is open to non residents and so by the time we left it was quite busy as it was the school holidays. I chose the hotel for its proximity to the main gate of the National Park where we went on a game drive for much of the afternoon. It took us very little time to get to the park. We had lunch, dinner and breakfast at the hotel which we had to preorder at reception. The menu was rather limited. The bean stew was a big hit with the vegetarian in the group. We enjoyed breakfast very much and it was served from about 6:30 allowing us an early start, The hotel provided us with packed lunches including a vegetarian option.
