We made the mistake of staying here when we had a late evening arrival, it was already dark, and an early morning departure from Jomo Kenyatta airport. The problem is that the hotel is too far from the airport; the traffic is too congested with all the construction activity taking place; and, the airport is basically chaotic.
Having said all that given more time we might have appreciated all that the hotel had to offer. The room we had was very and certainly different, one might say a bit quaint. It was supposed to represent a boat and we did survive without seasickness.
I guess we were too tired to be able to make objective judgements about the food, although the sundowner session around a fire was enjoyable with an eclectic crowd of people.
