I arrived around 5pm and progressed to the bar-patio area. I wanted a snick and a beer. The snack I ordered was clearly a problem because the waitron returned twice to explain they did not have all the makings and what did I want to swop it for? The beer was cold so when the snack basket did arrive with... More

I was very impressed by this hotel - the best in Entebbe - with clean modern rooms/bathrooms, good free wifi in the rooms, friendly pleasing customer service attitude, a totally amazing breakfast buffet and tasty room service selections. I will never stay at another hotel in Entebbe again. I highly recommend it. It is very convenient to the airport. But... More

The staff at the Protea were lovely. Very friendly and helpful. Very close to the airport which makes it a great stay when needing an airport stop. It's also a very big hotel and the rooms are much larger than needed. That sounds odd to say, but the hotel has no rooms for four people, so adjoining rooms are required... More

Dear cgore13, Thank you for your overview received of your experience at the Protea Hotel by Marriott Entebbe. Your observation of the family room requirement is noted, yes indeed we do not have family rooms suitable for 4 occupants, however plans are in hand to introduce inter-leading doors between lake facing rooms within the next year.

The fresh breathe you get when you just enter the hotel, the fine designs around , the place is clean 24/7 and very interesting food. The swimming pool left me wanting more, the restaurant is amazing, i just took lovely selfies in the garden, and the fact it is near lake Victoria, makes it more beautiful.

The hotel is nice and very easy for the travelers if you are visiting in Entebbe on Lake Victoria. The only point is that you can smell the fish if you are outside and some time water flies is too much in the garden or lobby area. The Rooms are nice and quite and they have so many facilities.

I spent a night at this hotel prior to departing Uganda. My trip to that point was very rustic and simple. While a very enjoyable trip, by the end of it I was, admittedly so, ready for some air conditioning, a good shower, great bed, calm from the hustle and bustle and some comfort foods.The hotel is clean and sits...

This is a luxury property located five minutes from Entebbe airport. Upsides are the airport pickup and proximity, good rooms, lots of space, Marriott Rewards connection, very good breakfast. Although being on the lake is supposed to be an attraction, we were overwhelmed by literally millions of lake flies, making it impossible to even go outside. So although a natural... More

When visiting Uganda Protea Entebbe is a MUST VISIT resort! Situated right on the beautiful Lake Victoria, 5 minutes from the airport, with fresh pure air, serene settings, friendly staff and divine cuisine. The personal attention guests receive from the ever friendly General Manager makes this my only choice every time I visit Entebbe. Well done Protea staff and management!
