We spent our first night in Rwanda at the Palm Gardens and could not have been given a more kind and beautiful welcome. Its location is fantastic right on the lake, with views of the water from every spot on the property. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The restaurant serves up delicious meals of all sorts from local fish fare to pasta to croque monsieurs. I agree with other reviews that what stands out more than anything is the service. The staff is attentive and accommodating while the manager of the hotel, Vedaste Kayiranga goes above and beyond to ensure that you enjoy your stay. From arranging traditional music and dance performances on Saturday nights, to boat rides on the lake, to tours around Gisenyi, Vedaste is the ultimate host. Wish we could have stayed longer. HIGHLY recommended!
