Decent chalets ”

A comfy unit, at a decent price. Has everything you need to cater for yourself: fridge, microwave, kettle, cutlery and crockery. About a 10 minute drive from the casino. The bathroom wasn't that grand. Toilet is small, and the bathroom only has a bath with handheld shower. There's no shower curtain or glass. The nozzle from my handheld shower was broken, thus I the bathroom got flooded.

The staff only prioritise white guest when it comes to music played at the pool bar area the bar man even told us that the music played depends if there are white people or not, when we asked him to play something different not rave. The best waitress. from the restaurant was Gloria she's very friendly. The reception staff where very helpful including the porter. Thato from the game drive has so much information when it comes to animals. The shuttle driver was very friendly. Please improve on staff training and friendliness especially with restaurant staff and with cleaning and clearing of tables. Thank you

The hotel room I was in needs some work though (broken cupboards, stains on the wall & a worn out matress) The worst experience was the visit to the Aquadome -- it was overcrowded, the water quite dirty and pools not heated (as promised).
