We stayed in this hotel many years ago when it was faultless but these days have gone and many aspects need an update . We stayed several times during our African trip and only got a decent room on the last occasion when we complained about the previous two stays. Although the other rooms were technically deluxe they did not meet this standard. The reception staff were not particularly helpful except on the last stay and this was in contrast to the door staff and particularly the staff in the Tatu restaurant who were excellent.
The room service menu may have contributed to my other half's stomach problem so I would not recommend this option. The bar staff were not especially friendly so when the anticipated re-fit of Acacia and other section is complete the ambience may improve but the service needs attention as well.
