Kampala, Uganda
Reviewed 9 February 2017 via mobile

We come back to the marina restaurant because we like the location, it's close to home and the staff are good. Unfortunately this will have been our last visit. I reviewed recently, 2*, because we got the wrong food (not for the first time) and after this visit we can see that things are unlikely to change. As usual we...

During my 5 days-stay at the hotel, I experienced courteous customer care service expected of the facility. Phone calls for room service were responded to in minutes. Whereas we often share reviews of hotels, we often fail to recognise the people - the staff - who directly attended to us during the stay. In this regard, I have shared 4...

We traveled to Lake Victoria Serena for a family vacation during the Christmas break.We enjoyed ourselves-the facilities are great and the food as well. The F& B manager(Robert) was very helpful in helping us create a meal plan for our son who has severe food allergies.

This is one of the prettiest Serenas I have been to so far, virtually all the rooms overlooking the lake. I spent a lot of time at the balcony relaxing, and just enjoying the silence. The staff were great, and very helpful. The rooms are lovely and clean. The spa is great and well maintained. My one issue ( and...

Today 1st January 2017 my husband and I arrived at the hotel for buffet lunch. Price x 3, no possibility for a la carte service and everyone blaming management for the inflation. We are regulars so we know this is not good value for money. "Go away and see you never" was the clear message we got. Back to Lake...

Beautiful grounds & buildings, could do with a little more maintenance. Limited tv channels. Food usually comes in pretty large portions so my husband and I usually shared to avoid wasting. Excellent pool and the staff at the bar are very pleasant and helpful, ready to make any cocktail you've ever dreamt of.
