On arrival found the rooms to be as good as any we stayed in.
The rest of the hotel was distinctly average. The bar was far too small for the number of guests. We were on the Lions tour and they could just not cope with the numbers. There were no alternatives within walking distance (apart from the brothel next door as previously disciussed!!).
The front desk repeatedly tried to arranged illigitimate taxi's for us, probably family members with no official licence , who tried to extort money , thankfully without sucess from our party. Less forceful people could easily be taken in by this racket.
The 'pool' area is no more than an ornamental garden pond and other promised facilities like the gymnasium are yet to be completed.
The food wasn't too bad as long as yopu got in early enough whilst the buffet was still fresh enough.
In conclusion I would not go back to this hotel.
