Dear Guest, Greetings from Sarova Hotels. Thank you for taking time to share your review. While we are delighted to know that you particularly found our culinary experience outstanding, we take note of the attributes in which we regrettably fell short of refreshing. Our endeavor is to exceed our guests' expectations and deliver to them our promise of "Refreshing African Hospitality." It is for this reason that we have been undertaking the pool upgrade project, which we have now concluded. We value your feedback and assure you of our follow through on the areas highlighted for our attention. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us through any of our online channels for any further insights. We look forward to welcoming you back to Sarova Shaba. Warm regards, Sarova Hotels
