We booked Amani as a last-minute deal for our Vacation since we wanted a place to unwind after a hectic month planning our church ceremony. The first impression was that of an underutilized property but we were pleasantly surprised to find a full restaurant! They have managed to accommodate so many people in the place without letting it feel crowded....

We arrived after a day full of DELAYS at the airport and we were just glad to have finally made it to the hotel! We had an at best mediocre reception, no cold cocktails (until requested) or smiling faces at hand which I was somewhat unaccustomed to. This was a general theme of our stay where their hands off approach...

The house keeping was wanting, towels were not replaced daily unless requested, same for toiletries...the food variety was limited and repetitive even tea time snacks. However the worst bit was on my first night at the bar, the waiter passed me over severally to serve foreigners before serving me.....thats a downer for local tourism...kindly improve.
