The hotel began with 25 rooms, but today, a total of 105 state-of-the-art rooms await guests, offering comfort throughout.

It is hard to describe how bad this place is. It hasn't had any maintenance down in years - the walls are crumbling on the outside, half the lights in the bedrooms didn't work - the food was inedible and the staff indifferent. Unforutnatley there aren't many options un this area but ifyou can avoid it then i=do!!

For 12,000 a room a night, there should be all amenities such as sauna/steam bath and a gym. Restaurant ambient wanting, not near 3 star that charge such rates. Morning breakfast still like any low end average hotels. Rooms are good. Service can be far better with recreational facilities mentioned above, and good diversity of food.

Hotel is conviniently located within the town. At the entrance is a washing point which has soap but no water and paper towels. The rooms are big and well maintained and comfy. The food and restaurant area is a great disappointment. The sanitizer dispenser doesn't work, hand washing point is at a hidden corner with trickling water and no paper towels. The lighting is so bad, it gives the feeling of we do not want you here. The table are set with minimum cutlery and condiments are only on some tables. If you are lucky you can get a table set, otherwise set one for yourself. The food is ok but limited variety. The staff look tired and sad, don't ask too much out of them. It was not the best of experiences

Let me just say the bathtub was the best part of the hotel stay. After this period of minimized travels, We'll definitely be back for a proper holiday. The aquariums at the dinning area, enhance the ambience. Esther our waiter for both dinner and breakfast was really awesome.

Stayed here on business and the hotel was great with good service. Held a dinner and cocktail event for my customers at one of the halls one evening and everything went smoothly - well handled by the staff. The rooms are also quite amazing, very modern and comfortable. Would recommend this place to others.

I loved my stay at Kifaru. I like the rooms and the food was amazing. No delays by the waiters, and the reception is to be commended. I loved the proximity of the facility ,its location close to town allows you to go about your business without other hustles . Cheers kifaru.

The place has no swimming pool or other activities as one would expect considering the price Menu is very limited and the hotel management is too stingy to even provide a soda even when on full board No buffet as one would expect Not worth the amount spent at all.
