Nice lodge Staff are very friendly. Food was good and they provided a lot of variety. Cabins are not large, but are nice and tidy. The hotel has an amazing view of the park and is well located for the Mara Triangle.

This place is great, right in the Masai Mara park, so you can access the whole park instantly. Our group of 12 stayed here for 2 nights, and the experience is unforgettable. The hotel stands on a hill looking over the park, so you can see for miles. All the rooms are individually placed attached to the main building, with...

Mara Serena is a premium lodge to stay if you are visiting Masai Mara. The premium is because of its location. Its right in the middle of the Mara triangle. We have stayed many times at this property and would highly recommend.

This is an excellent place to stay in the Masai Mara. It is located in the Triangle which is very good option for animal viewing. The hotel is spotless. From the room window you could see baboons. The breakfast and food options were great. It was available in the morning before everyone headed out for safari making it very practical....

Breakfast was alot couldn't finish it. Would stay here again! We saw all animals in the park except for the leopard which is always a struggle to see.

I had the opportunity to stay here for three nights. I do have mixed feelings about this property.
