The Panafric has an excellent and well managed restaurant.
The food is well done and the steaks are to die for. Try the T-Bone steak. There is no greater T bone steak than this in Nairobi.
The restaurant also has a good ambiance and an excellent veranda seating

I stayed in Sarova Panafric with my fiancé for 4 days.As soon as we alighted from the airport cab that brought us,we were welcomed at the door by a concierge in a colorful presumably national costume and once we got to the check-in desk we were offered napkins to clean our hands and a refreshing glass of apple and ginger drink.I was delighted at the reception.
I would like to find something to criticize but honestly I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Sarova.Our room was on the fifth floor with a stunning view;very clean and stocked with mini toiletries in the bathroom,the food was delicious and plentiful,staff were so friendly and welcoming.There was a mini bar in our room stocked with delicious nibbles and drinks;and I have a sweet tooth!trust me,I kept them busy re-stocking that bar each day!The pool was clean and fair sized.
And the bed?so comfy,I was reluctant to leave it in the mornings...will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The fifth floor definately

We are a training & consultancy firm and as such, we conduct trainings on a regular basis. We have no training facilities of our own and as such, we always outsource. We conducted a training involving 20 people at the sarova panafric on the dates indicated. We were assigned a room on the 2nd floor. The service provided was excellent. The food was absolutely great. The two areas for improvement are;

1. Provide an extra toilet for the conference room provided on 2nd floor. 20 people shared 1 toilet which ended up with people queueing
2. Ensure that the cutlery needed for refreshments served inside the conference room is availed together with the refreshments. The cutlery provided came way after the refreshments had been set up for the 10 o'clock & 4pm tea on both days of the training.

Stayed here in a standard twin room for one night before going on safari, upon return from safari spent a few hours by the pool.

- If your booking the cheapest rooms ensure you ask for a renovated one

- Standard rooms only have a shower but the water pressure and temperature were good, but rooms are quite small

- Breakfast was very good choice of 3/4 cereals, big pastry/cake selection, usual cooked items and an egg/omlette station plus fruit, tea/coffee, fresh juices and toast.

- Our party of 7 ate in the restaurant and ordered a variety of meals from pizza to steak and all were of a good standard as was the service. Friday night in the restaurant is steak night. Food beside the pool was also good and menu was the usual fare sandwiches, pasta, pizza, fries etc

- Pool is a reasonable size although there aren't many sun loungers. When I was there they'd used the area at one end of the pool for a conference buffet lunch, the bar & covered seating area is on another side, another side had only a handful of chairs & tables under cover which left one side and a narrow one at that for sun loungers. If the pool area is important I'd definately look at other hotels.

we stayed here during our first night in Kenya. It is an excellent place for an overnight stay. The food is good, rooms are nice. There is also a swimming pool and security on every floor. We would stay here again.
