Serena hotels don't disappoint! The food was good, The rooms were neat and spacious, The service was ok. Entertainment was ok though can be noisy for those who want to sleep early. NOTE: i was there during Easter weekend probably entertainment is provided during special holiday only. otherwise I would highly recommend.

Perched in the heart of Tsavo West National Park, the location is great for watching herds coming to quench their thirst at the two watering holes just below the hotels main dining area.
