We stayed at this hotel during the end of April for one week. We have travelled extensivley in Africa and knew what sort of service to expect from a hotel of this standard. The staff did not let the hotel down, they were polite couteous and helpful at all times even though we stayed at the end of the season.when they must all of been looking forward to the hotel closing for a few weeks! The hotel itself is very tired looking and could do with a lick of paint. The rooms were comfortable but also need updating, the bathroom was dull and a little dirty. The food was average but plenty of variety on offer.The entertainment in the evenings was good and on the whole the hotel setting is very beautiful. The beach boys can get on your nerves trying to sell all the time, but of course they do need to make a living. If you ask them to leave you alone they they will do so. We organised a safari with Nemo who saved us £350 on the tour operators price each, and all went like clockwork. We stayed at Treetops in the Masai Mara, lots of beautiful animals but have stayed in nicer places. The Masai Mara is beautful and well worth the trip.
The reason that we took a three day safari while only on holiday for 1 week was to get away from the dire English people staying at the hotel, most of whom had stayed there umpteen times before and what they didnt know about what you should and shouldnt do wasnt worth knowing! Very clicky!
I would say that this isn`t a young couples hotel more a family and middle aged couples place.
We wouldnt go back but did however enjoy our stay.
