The setting is great with great scenery. The place is good for people who keep to themselves as there are very few visitors. The menu was very limited understandably with few visitors the resort cant afford a variety which made it boring. The water was cold and road the the place is a dusty nightmare local government should improve access

We stopped in for a hike and lunch. Both were disappointing. First, the restaurant service took an hour for lunch from the time we ordered to the time the food came - nothing fancy - some sandwiches and curry, which was challenging with a hungry 1 year old. The food was over priced and a tiny portion - so much...

We stayed here for one night only as we were attending a wedding next door. We were impressed to find that the hotel allowed us early check in so we could get ready and that they prepared us an early lunch. We weren't very impressed with the decking lunch is served on though. Very rocky and wobbly. For such a...

Wonderful place located by the crater lake. Very calm and peaceful. Enough activities around the property. Two hour hike around the lake with their guide was good, saw some gazelles, giraffes, wild buffaloes and zebras. You can take a drive around the park, and eat at the floating restaurant on the lake. Heater and hot water bags were provided in...

It was an amazing trip. It is serene and ideal for those getaway weekends that you need to unwind and have a good time. It is ideal if you looking for a place to cool off after a hard weeks work. Recommended to go with a few friends.

Stayed in the place for 5 days and had a wonderful experience. The food served was good,rooms are well maintained and the shower was hot. I recommend the place to anyone who wishes to visit Naivasha. Except for the poor road,it's a place worth going to.

Place was beautiful, scenic, serene and worth the visit. Rooms excellent, food mediocre. Unfortunately hotel manager seems to think guests at Crater Lake have no value. Front office staff, waiters try their best, but overwhelmed by events. Training and possible need for more capacity/ cooking equipment. Manager needs a course on attitude and customer value. Sorry for being harsh :)

Nice scenic place specially if you go round the crater & see the animals, it was just a day trip but found very nice place to visit and relax, the road to the hotel is very bad but yes safaris are mostly like this, we had a good time & going to come back for sure.

We had a chance of staying in the place for some few days and as a nature lover fanatic Crater lake provided the best.A private ranch with amazing nature guided trails was what I needed. The tents were average,staff a bit slow ,meals average , bumpy/rough road very tricky you feel like going back but on arrival you change your...
