Karibu Guest House in Entebbe is a nice, cozy and pleasant place to stay. We spend two nights there before taking our flights out of the country. Rooms are exceptional: nice, clean, new and comfortable.
Beds are great, nice mosquito nets there too. Showers are beautiful, made in stone and water is always there and hot.
The gardens are pleasant and well kept. they could however place some additional tables there
The staffs are generally nice and very friendly.
This place has a two dogs (we actually only met one - called Bella), generally friendly (never heard it even bark!). But if you don't like dogs or are allergic then this might not be ideal for you.
Dining area is under the verandah of the main house, and in evening is candle light. Nice and cozy environment for couples.
Breakfast, good, nothing exceptional but with some varieties. You are given several choices and is a good mix of all.
Dinner, they can certainly do much better here. The first night we were there and had dinner it was evident that all was microwaved. Since they have a fixed Menu on a 3 course meal, and the guest house is relatively small, and waiters always ask in the morning if you are in or not for dinner, I would've expected to have better dinner meals. certainly not microwaved. this has been a minus to the place, and not worth the additional 25USD for the meal. Second night was a bit better, but still that microwave touch!
Never had the opportunity to have lunch there, but I guess I didn't miss much!
They do offer a free service to the airport in case you need. Also taxis can be called at the reception... watch out for their prices, but usually the receptionist informs you before hand.
Generally speaking Karibu is a good place to relax, even though there isn't much to do. We spent most of our time at the Lake Victoria swimming pool (really nice!).
I will go again to Karibu, I liked the environment, but this time I will avoid the meals.
Was there in August 2013, with family.
