          May I congratulate you on your response to "Mrs" review, which I found very rude, if she wanted to bring her own drinks in she should have stayed self catering and not a hotel. There is not a hotel on this planet which would allow you to consume your own alcohol, I think you showed great patience, I would have sent her packing.

          Hi there, regarding spending money in & outside of the resort: Any advice on whether we need to convert foreign currency into local currency, in Kenya? It's always useful to have some local currency, but you always lose on conversions especially if it's not "hard" currency that you're converting to. Just curious if you can easily spend £, $ or € in Kenya? Thanks.
