Great location with beach closeby and airport only about ten minutes away. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Rooms were quite nicely decorated, bed was comfortable - fan in room. Shower was hot, however drain was clogged. Poolside is quite nice and relaxing (pool itself is quite small!). No safe in room but grounds are secure. Wifi available in room.
The hotel also owns a beachside restaurant just a 2 minute walk from the hotel, it is a great spot to relax! Beers were nice and cold and food is quite good. The friday night BBQ is alright, food wasn't great but the band was surprisingly really good!

Room Tip: Get an upstairs room with balcony, nice views

We stayed there in mid January for our first 2 nights in Uganda and returned for our final night. It’s a short drive to the airport and we had a trouble free complimentary pick up and drop off. Definitely opt for a lake view room, so you can enjoy the sights and amazing birds from the balcony. Our rooms were clean and had all we needed – good wi-fi, bottled water, mosquito nets. The first stay was on the ground floor in room 2, then we stayed upstairs in room 19. The upstairs room was definitely smarter and looked like it had been fitted out more recently.
Note the showers are not hot – one of our local guides said that no Ugandans showered with hot water because ‘it made them strong’! I would not have minded being a bit ‘weak’ and having some hot water, but it was bearable and compensated by everything else.
The small touches, like the hot packed breakfast for our early start on a safari, use of the day room right up to leaving for the airport and the unfailing friendliness of all the staff really made us feel at home. Food is basic but very tasty. Nice pool for cooling off – not big enough for serious swimming. Make use of the beach side too, it’s worth taking the kayak out on the lake. I booked online (on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews) and paid a deposit online – all without trouble and always had quick replies to emails. In our experience from start to finish nothing was too much trouble – this is a genuine local hotel, offering a 5 star Ugandan welcome. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: First floor rooms look newer. Sea views are extra but worth it.

The slogan of 2 friends is so true!!! If you open up your self during your stay here you will leave as a friend!!! The staff and the owners are so friendly en make you're stay very nice!
It's a beautiful place to stay for more than just one night overstay when you go traveling! My advice is to longer you're stay in Uganda at 2 friends for a couple of days, just to relax and some papering!!
The food is good, the have a nice swimming pool, you can walk down the strip at the beautyfull Victoria lake, there is a nice 'beachside' restaurant where you can eat, drink and relax.

"Come as a guest, leave as a friend". This is the slogan of the 2friends Beach hotel in Entebbe. This is exactly how we experienced our stay at 2friends. The staff made extraordinary efforts to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Not only beeing very friendly, but also with creative proposals of what we could do, what to take account for. We also had the pleasure of meeting the owners who involved themselves both in nice and interesting conversations. The hotel seemed to be run very professionally without loosing the individual and intimate athmosphere.
Last but not least we have to mention the nice Beach and its fabulous manager Ayub, who seemed to do a phantastic job running the bar and Beach area.

Thanks to all of you!

Room Tip: If you can afford it would maybe be better to rent a room in the first floor with balcony and view ot the Victoria Lake.

We had such a great time staying in this hotel! We had booked it as just a place to rest as we transitioned to next part of our journey, but it had so much to offer. Most importantly, the food was absolutely incredible, both at the hotel and at the beach bar. They offered free kayaks (which we used early in the morning) and bike rentals. The offered services for massages, nails and hair. It was so easy to book ourselves in for airport transfers for free (airport is only 10 minutes away). The wifi was quick and free. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: We had the room upstairs with a large balcony and the view of Lake Victoria (#22).
