Had a great stay! The resort theme is entertaining but aesthetic, the design is pleasing and the layout is convenient. Great for entertaining young children with a wide variety of things to see and do. The resort centers are clean and spacious as are the rooms. The staff is attentive and friendly. Overall an excellent experience!

Have stayed multiple times in regular rooms and in the Nyumba houses. More expensive than other area options by a bit, but clean and well-staffed. Facility is well-kept and updated. Kids from ages 2-12 had a great time recently with a family weekend.

After arriving home from out stay at the end of June/beginning of July of this year, we were offered a complimentary room upgrade to a Royal African Queen Suite for our next visit, whenever that would happen to be.

the best thing about the resort was that even though it was a busy weekend and the water park was quite crowded, the hotel area near the rooms were quite peaceful. the hustle bustle of the water park didnt really affect the hotel rooms.

Great? Room size. Even the most economical room is nicely sized. The bathrooms are pretty standard but the beds and that area has room for the kids to move around and there is a small balcony. Rooms are clean and pretty updated. Could they use a little touch up? Sure but they ate still really nice. Most important part the... More

We go there every year for a weekend long event and everybody loves it. We've stayed at their private villas and in the condo rooms in the past and both offer great accommodations. Can't comment on the regular hotel rooms but i'm sure they're not bad. The resort has it all, restaurants with bars, indoor water park, outdoor water park,... More

We stayed over the weekend and it was just alright. The only thing included in your room rate is the water park. They do have an indoor theme park, but it is an extra cost. The sink is outside of the bathroom and the bathroom is really small. We ordered a movie and it was $17.99, which we felt was... More

We are a well traveled family, but went with friends who do not travel as much, so for a weekend get away with a 2 and 3 year old.
