    Is the pricing per night "per person"?

    The price is per room unless you have all inclusive packages: those are per person

    If this is Africa and not the US Then address the following Issues: 1. Why do they charge 3 Times what the US would charge for comparable product, and then offer an inferior product 2. One should not lower expectations especially when paying for a five Star Hotel. A Five Star should be comparable to any Five Star in the World. Kenya is not exempt from this rule. 3. The standard of service and food should be higher because they pay their workers in Shillings not dollars. They also pay for their food and other inputs in Shillings. We pay for the Rooms in Dollars. 4. Tourism is a competitive International Market and every country, the US included are competing for those dollars. Wise up Africans 5. Give us our Dollars Worth Accommodations, Food and Service.
