I was a Peace Corps volunteer that spent 2 years in Rwanda/ I stayed here one night as a treat. It is expensive but very nice. There evening buffets are amazing, each night is a theme I recommend finding out which day they do the Mongolian bbq! Also there Sunday morning brunch is amazing and comes with complimentary champagne. The pool is nice. The beach is great also. The lake is beautiful and great for a swim. There are chairs along the beach and towels provided. If you just want to hang out for the day you can pay 3,000 francs (about $6) to get the private beach space with chair and towel. The beds are comfortable. The showers are hot. The rooms have nice robes. And every room has a balcony with a lake view. If going during the off season (non summer months) they usually have a discount so be sure to ask about that. Keep in mind this is a newly developing country and all hotels have bad service. This is something across Rwanda.
