very nice and innovative staff. They try to do the best with that bit

4/5 Good

Secluded resort

It was a bit of rocky ride to the hotel but well worth it- almost safari like. However, when we arrived at the resort, it's secluded, peaceful, relaxing and clean with birds chirping around the compound and even some wild life (monkeys). We saw the New Year by the log fire on the beach- it was lovely- nice chalets and staff although the service was occasionally below par. Wifi was only available in the office but on the last night the manager gave us a complimentary connection to the chalet.

Staff try but are poorly trained. Shuttle service to airport is expensive. Hotel is at the end of a long, hilly, small dirt road.

4/5 Good

Nice place pity about power issues

Wonderfull location on shores of Lake Victoria. About 10km of dirt road to reach it, some of it challenging without a 4x4. Service and food were good. The resort is let down by lack of electricity. The rooms had no electric during the days and went off several hours before daylight. They claim to be using solar energy backed up with generators but think this is a cost saving exercise. Beers are kept in a fridge at the bar but unfortunately the fridge is rarely working so beers are warm.. the pool was clean and a nice area to sit.

The gate was closed

After a very long journey on a dusty and bumpy road in the darkness I have reached the Garuga Beach Resort Hotel only to face the closed gate and switched off phone. Apparently it was fully booked and they somehow missed my reservation. Not recommended.
