I stayed at the Imperial Resort Beach hotel for two days and one night when my flight out of Entebbe was delayed for 48 hours due to mechanical problems. The airline put us up in the hotel. This is an impressive structure that makes an impression with its grand entrance and lobby. Rooms were great! Large with very comfortable bed, TV, beautiful tiled bathroom. Bathroom had a separate shower and tub, but unfortunately I could get no hot water from the shower (and practically flooded the bathroom trying since opening the door to adjust the water allows it all to spray into the room. The bath did have hot water. Windows are unfortunately very small - not easy to enjoy the beautiful view if you're on the lake side of the hotel. A/C worked fine and power was consistent throughout my stay. Internet access was pretty good - you have to get a passcode from the front desk each day (I don't know if they normally charge for this or not, but they did not charge us). The staff was great - very friendly and very accommodating - to all of us stranded travelers! The food was buffet only and was average for Uganda, but there was plenty of it! Between the hotel and Lake Victoria is a 'park' area that is fenced with gates locked some of the time, but you can always access it and it is lovely to stroll in. You can walk to the large beach area and there is a restaurant (grill) and bar there also that was closed on the weekday, but open for Saturday. Lots of locals came to hang out and party on Saturday. The pool is also over in this area, rather far from the hotel and it looked as though you had to pay to use it, although I didn't look into this further. Hotel is fairly close to other things in Entebbe an situated in a quiet neighborhood setting on the lake. I would stay here again.
