Our family of four was initially booked in at the Nile Porch for $150/night. After numerous issues there, we drove down the road to check out the Jinja Nile Resort. The reception staff was very helpful and offered a price of $170/night. We gladly accepted as the accommodations were far superior. If the rating was based on accommodations alone, I...

I was there for one night and will say it was beautiful location. Now the rooms while big and clean for the most part had no ac and a fan that did not do much. The pool area looked nice however the restaurant was just so so, i would expect more from a resort. Service was even slow for what...

They are the most disorganized group of people, have no regard for guest satisfaction and will do nothing to make your stay more pleasant. Don't even get me started on the restaurant. It took them 20...
