experience

The stay at Munyonyo was good but the Hotel.com confirmation email stated that the total price paid included Airport Transfer including other facilities but the resort denied that and said it was not included thus costing me extra $30 for the Taxi. I think the confirmation was misleading.

    A TAD DISAPPOINTED OVERALL

    Was actually expecting a little more in terms of the overall experience, the room was ok but I had to ask a number of times to get it cleaned.

    5/5 Excellent

      Extraordinary hotel

      This was by far the best stay of our trip! The hotel and grounds were beautiful, as was the room. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the bed very comfortable, the food was fantastic, and the location on Lake Victoria couldn't be beat. It is located about 30 minutes from Entebbe Int. Airport, which was convenient, but we felt like we were miles away from any city. I couldn't recommend this hotel more.
