We planned two nights here to recover from long flights before our safari. The room is large with a large bathroom with rain shower. However, we had no water, the safe was locked and the phone is broken so we had to walk (through the rain!) to reception. After lunch discovered that not even water is included- for such an expensive hotel! The next day there were few guests so there was little food for breakfast (they ran out of bacon and sausages and croissants) but lunch was even worse - almost nothing on the menu was available, chicken breast turned out to be leg and the coffee was cold. By the end of the second day the phone still does not work and there are ants in the bathroom.
Wifi is available (fee) but very slow away from reception.
Staff are friendly and helpful but we cannot recommend this place,especially for the price.
