What I appreciated even more was the friendliness of the staff. They were all so friendly, courteous and caring throughout our whole stay. Their positive minds really reflected the mentality I...

Been in Kenya a number of months and fully aware that Kenyan timings are a little bit more laid back than western timings. But this place takes it to a new level. Waited over 80mins for...
