We liked the Hotel very much, the staff is very friendly and make you feel at home. Very interesting excursions offered at the hotel to go see the rinos, we loved it! And what about the spa pools that are breathtaking, a well prepared staff that makes the best masages I've ever received... no better place to relax after spending...

This hotel has been my worst experience so far having travelled all around the world.

Upon arriving at the hotel, we were helped by the security guy called Dominique who helped...

We visited the Rhino with a couple of friends for the weekend. I had high hopes as the reviews and pictures I had seen on TA were very good. I was not disappointed. The hotel is beautiful. As soon as you enter the reception it feels lovely and tranquil. The grounds and pools are immaculately kept (despite a huge thunderstorm)....

This is one of the best spa facilities I've experienced, and excellent spa services. Whilst the hotel also looks great, it's missing the smaller touches that make any hotel truly 5*. But the most shocking thing is the food - literally the worst hotel food I have ever eaten, almost inedible. For a 5* spa resort, this is not just...

I really liked this hotel. Resort like. Service is great, rooms are pretty and clean. It's in the middle of town so great for walking around and a few nice restaurants around as well. The restaurant menu is not great, few choices, high prices. Breakfast is decent. Gym is good.

Booked this hotel through Bookings.com. Arrived quite late one evening and was relieved to find that the restaurant was open until 11pm. I enjoyed both meals we had in the restaurant. Check in was professional, courteous and efficient. Stayed in a standard room which included a four poster king size bed. Plenty of room, powerful shower, step in bath, and...

First time I'm visiting this hotel which i found through tripadvisor. I read some of the reviews and i thought people were exaggerating on what they experienced, but not at all... The objective of our trip was to relax and take a few days off from work. We totally found what we were looking for. The first impression at our...

This is our first stay at the  Rhino Hotel Hotel. The grounds were very nice and the room was beautiful, but the restaurant was horrible.

This is my second trip to this luxury hotel. I had really enjoyed it the first time, and they really impressed me with their impeccable service this time around. Also, their kitchen and the food they serve in a truly African surrounding was delicious. I'm sure that I'll be back.
