I stayed at Munyonyo for four days. it is an excellent hotel. the rooms are nice and beautiful. the staff was friendly. the food was mostly good (except for my last night when afew of us in the group got food poisoning).
Although i traveled there for business, i think it would be an ideal place for a holiday as most of the hotel is nice and quiet. However, i had afew incidences where hotel staff (who were not in uniform and therefore not cleaners but more "senior" staff) would stand/sit outside my door and chit chat loudly and i would have to ask them to keep it down cause i would be napping or working. That was the only unprofessional behavior i encountered.
My room didn't have a bathtub, which was a bit disappointing but over all the rooms, corridors, lobby, etc is well decorated, well lit and gives you the sense that you can relax.
An added perk is that they have security guards on different floors at all times day and night which gives a sense of the hotel being extremely secure which is more that i can say for some kampala hotels.
