Me and my husband stayed at Sarova Stanley twice during our journey in Kenya in the begining of Jan 2022. We’ve been here countless of times and the service and friendship is always at the top-top level. This time it exceeded all of our expectations. Just one example… we needed a Covid Test to fly home….the hotel provided us with inclusive service they’ve agreed with a laboratorion in Nbo. They did made the appointment for us, the expert come to our room at agreed time, took the sample, we did get the results as promised in the time frame. And the best part here was that the hote (= read Carolina Kamau) remind us of the importance of the test. Thanks all of you and especially Caoline Nyawira Kamau … the best 🌹
