Arrived late in the evening after 30 hours of travel and was warmly welcomed. The room was well appointed and the included breakfast was a good buffet of choices. Internet was not accessible in the room but is available in common areas. Poll and grounds are typical and lovely.

Beautiful hotel with clean and spacious room. Loved the tab in the bathroom. The breakfast has variety of dishes. Loved their beet juice. The staff were friendly and helpful. Had several meals including both dinner and lunch. The dinner was part of the African night by the pool with a live band performing, a beautiful sight.

I had a lovely spaghetti dinner here - expensive but a treat and it is so well done as the flavors were lovely. I had a nice glass of wine and my friend had a Kilimanjaro beer - both were cold and brought to us promptly. The staff were friendly and welcoming.
