Very nice staff and a good place to stay! We arrived very early in the morning and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Nice clean rooms and a nice restaurant! We would stay there again! Had the best pina colada ever here.

I visited Kenya on business and stopped overnight in Nairobi on the way in and out of the country.

The staff provided a very high level of service, including effectively resolving a minor mix-up with...
