We stayed at Mara West for three nights during our safari in Maasai Mara. Stayed in one of the tented chalets and it was a first class experience. We found the rooms to be exceptionally clean and very well appointed with anything you'd need. The restaurant food was great and the service was excellent as everyone knew us by name and we really felt welcome and our business was appreciated. Wish we had more nights there on our itinerary.
Only criticism was that the meals in the restaurant were very western and there wasn't much local flavour. When we mentioned it to the chef, he actually made us authentic Kenyan dishes the next night. How nice!
