Everything you could want (but food is expensive!)
Sarova Panafric was an absolutely beautiful place to stay for a workshop, and the location in town is unbeatable. While the hotel is super nice and you will not want for anything, you'll certainly pay for it. How many raviolis do you think you get for $23 on the room servive menu? The answer is 3! Yikes! Similar situation with simple chicken wings. Other than food prices and portion sizes though, I have no complaints and loved this hotel otherwise.

4/10 Fair

We booked this property after staying at Sarova Whitesands in Mombasa, Kenya thinking the hotel would just as great, BOY were we wrong. Property is under construction which was not identified prior to booking on hotel website or Expedia until after reservation was made. My wife got sick the first night after eating at resturant onsight from a bad piece of fish getting sick at the dinner table not the greatest experience. Breakfast buffet food was never warm except cook to order eggs. Room doors had a four inch gap from the floor to bottom of door which allowed all hallway noise to be clearly heard throughout the night. We depart as soon as possible to another hotel. Hotel construction project was none stop to include at night and the weekend. Staff at front counter was hit and miss all depended on mood just to ask a question not complain was rudly greated. My wife is Kenyan and I am a white American male learn to treat everyone with the same respect.
