We stayed here 4 nights and had a memorable time.
Only gripe is the quality of rooms. We first had standard rooms and they are downright crude and do not justify the remaining good points of the hotel in general. Our travel operator African Quest Safari had us upgraded to superior rooms at no extra cost to us. Even the bathrooms in the superior rooms are of poor finish( custard yellow wall tiles, wall dampness, chipped bath tubs, dreary washbasin worktop, poorly finished wallskirtings, heavily painted white doors - all too simialr to a Blackpool bed and breakfast setting) It is about time Sarova spent some time and money in upgrading the rooms (to a tasteful decor) to bring out the best in this hotel. Bring in flatscreen TV's etc.
Food quality, variety and staff attendance generally was excellent and faultless. The hotel has excellent landscaping and beautifull lesiure facilities. Well recommended.
