Almond has very large spacious rooms with AC, cable TV, internet and very comfortable beds for the tired traveler. Their food is good, especially breakfast which is usually continental, with everything you'd wish for... cereals, toast, halal sausage, egg, fresh fruit and fruit juice etc. in fact they grow their own mangoes right inside the hotel!
They also have a nice swimming pool for guest.
I was pleasantly surprised by Almond during my stay there. They have excellent facilities for lodging and conferencing. The suites are quite spacious and equipped with air conditioning. The restaurant has a spacious terrace lounge while the conference rooms were sufficiently spacious. WiFi available was sufficient for our needs. To top it all, the landscaping has been immaculately done, with neat tree-lines paths and well manicured lawns offering a picturesque backdrop to the stay. A swimming pool is at hand in case one needs a dip. I would stay here again if I were to have another trip to Garissa.
Stayed at Almond for two nights. The rooms are really spacious and clean with good views of the green gardens and pools.
WiFi is available but limited in some of the rooms.
The food is a bit pricey considering it is just average.
The service however is one of the poorest i have experienced. The staff even the reception is extremely wanting. I also gave my shirt out for ironing, a decision i regretted as they took really long to iron it and shirt came back wet. So i was late and had to go for a meeting with a wet shirt. The staff were not apologetic at all about this.
If you want a quiet, roomy place to stay then this it however do not expect much customer service and do not be shocked by the rudeness.
I was pleasantly surprised by the Almond Resort. The hotel has beautiful grounds and spacious rooms. The restaurant is amazing the lots of different food and espresso!
Good wifi, gym, pool. I like staying here for my work weeks
The rooms are specious, linen is clean and food is tasty but from reception to room service to swimming pool service the staff are indifferent, just do the basic to get you out of their way. A smile from a staff here is a strange expectation. But besides expecting the staff to practice good customer service expected in hospitality industry there wont be any other major disappointment if you keep your expectations low. Dont plan on a holiday to swim and enjoy the gym. They are closed and opened at the whims of the attendant staff not publicized opening and closing hours.
If you leave personal items for safe keeping at the reception, dont be surprised if it is not available when you need it because the receptionist you gave has left early and did not leave your item with the colleague taking over at the end of the shift
Food is good, wide variety of ala carte menu. Breakfast not bad
