At Sarova Stanely was out for a solo dinner to get away from all the daily struggles and commitments. This gentleman by the name Phillip Mwangi one humble, professional and calm guy just came to make sure that I was okay. It's his maintenance and following the COVID 19 restrictions that caught my eyes where he was concerned but still maintain his distance. His calmness and how he offered his services were top notch. Would recommend Phillip. Keep up the good work.

Me and my husband stayed at Sarova Stanley twice during our journey in Kenya in the begining of Jan 2022. We’ve been here countless of times and the service and friendship is always at the top-top level. This time it exceeded all of our expectations. Just one example… we needed a Covid Test to fly home….the hotel provided us with inclusive service they’ve agreed with a laboratorion in Nbo. They did made the appointment for us, the expert come to our room at agreed time, took the sample, we did get the results as promised in the time frame. And the best part here was that the hote (= read Carolina Kamau) remind us of the importance of the test. Thanks all of you and especially Caoline Nyawira Kamau … the best 🌹
