The rooms were nice, given that there was air conditioning. Also, you could walk into the village which is close by and not really have to worry, once you got used to the street boys following you around.
The hotel was nice but speaking only english was definitely a hinderence, as all of the hotel bulletins, tours, and outings were aimed at 100% Italians. We had a great time talking to the local bar staff that entertained our take on Kenyan Politics. All the local staff were very nice. It was the Italian staff that made you feel like a real outsider. The only honorable mention had to be the Italian tour director that tried his best at english and to make us feel somewhat welcome.
It would be a great place to go with a group of people, but if you only speak english, you are much better off to stay at Hemingways or another British resort.
