About the Protea I have mixed feelings, as it was announced as an excellent hotel. Why mixed feelings? On the good side, the reservation worked well, we got a De luxe room with a good rate, the view to the lake is superb, lots of birds around, large pool. The breakfast extraordinary - at least 30 meters of all kind...

We stayed here for 1 night.It's a good hotel.very near airport.but it needs a lot of upgrading.the lift was not working,tiles are loose all over the place,beach area is closed and the price is really steep. Overall not bad but expensive. It's supposed to be a 100USD hotel,but we paid double.

Dear talha u, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience whilst staying with us at the Protea Hotel by Marriott Entebbe. Please do accept our apologies for the lift not being operational for the evening of your arrival, as this is most certainly not the norm. Our beach bar is indeed open daily from 10h00 to 21h00....

This hotel is presently under construction, but it didn't hinder our stay. We stayed here for less than one day to catch an early morning flight. Our room was very nice and clean. We are Marriott Gold members so we were given a generous upgrade at check-in. The restaurant was fine, the food was not bad, the menu was typical...

I stayed in the Protea Hotel upon arriving late to Entebbe on my way to Kampala. The hotel was super close to the airport and the rooms were nice.

The hotel is under renovation, so there's a lot of somewhat awkward accommodations being made (they're putting in a new reservations desk, for instance, so they're using a temporary one), and there were intermittent power outages. However, the staff was unfailingly polite, friendly and helpful. In fact, when our taxi was late, the GM had the hotel van run us...
