A beautiful little secret find. The gardens are lush, pool is gorgeous and the vibes are tropical to a T. If you are a black Ugandan or person, prepare for strange vibes. Like the movie Get Out. The head, Norah, seemed nice at first but she was the creepiest one of them all. She could not stop speaking of the fact we were black like her. She seemed like a deeply unhappy person in paradise. The staff seem related to her in some way and therefore under her tutelage. So her character determines the vibe of the place. They are all ingratiating and trying to pull you in a false sense of comfort before trying to rip you off...the place is well worth a visit though. The owner clearly has an eye for design and decor. If you are the same color as Norah, plan to stay as much away from her by self catering, eating at other restaurants and spots around town and minding your business when you visit....don't buy into that creepy welcome smile. Would have given 5 stars had the customer service been like a welcoming, quiet, gentle, discrete service than a visit to passive aggressive in-laws who don't like you and cannot wait for you to leave particularly after you catch them trying to overcharge you while pretending it's a discount coz you are black like her... Also, use Uber and take walks to get around. It's more convenient and you won't have Norah's son..who is the guest house driver, try and charge you 3 times the price and demand you do your activities on his schedule because your presence has ruined his day off and he wants to be at home. A beautiful beautiful place ruined by the vibes of the staff. Do go though...just be wary of Norah and her son particularly. Her daughters were nice but mother dearest was never far. We enjoyed ourselves inspite their efforts to make that impossible.…
For the past 3 yeas we have stayed with our friends at Pineapple GH. Before Covid, during Covid and most recently 2 x in the past 2 months. Their service is impeccable, their staff are gracious and their Guesthouse is a quiet tranquil, fresh smelling place in Entebbe. We cannot say enough about this place and do not do reviews but these guys are worth it as we go back to again and again. Thank you Derek, Norah and Jaja Ahlen. The Andos
After travelling through Uganda for a few weeks Pineapple Guest House was our last stop before our departure. It was the perfect location to relax for a few days before returning home to Europe. We stayed in the little house next to the pool. Everything was super clean and in order. Relaxing at the pool felt like paradise: the lush flora surrounding the pool, the colorful birds, the crystal clear water. Norah was very helpful and accommodating, and we can recommend this piece of heaven to everyone who wants to escape the bustle of
The colourful birds singing in the early morning, the lovely pool, amazingly friendly and kind hosts and delicious food with cold beers make a wonderful place to relax after work. The host really look after you from the minute you step in to, literally, the minute you left as they drive you to the airport and make sure you are safe.
the staff were amazing, always so helpful and kind, beautifully maintained both inside and outside, food incredible. It felt like an oasis of tranquility. The beds were wonderfully comfortable. I slept so well! will undoubtedly be back!
