An old favourite, lovely surroundings to while away time on a hot day. Varied menu, well stocked bar with variety of soft drinks as well as alcohol.

Cosy bungalows with a great view of lake victoria! Great place to relax for beers and hot showers (wait for the hot water to reload after every shower). Would recommend for travellers looking for a peaceful place @ modest budget. Great local dinner, breakfast woke up to see falcons and kingfishers swooping in the lake!

I have stayed at this lodge and eaten there several times. The place is a little paradise although it has become more crowded over the past years. I still enjoy going and enjoy the view as well as their food which is quite good.

Close to the airport, which is nice if you want to have a meal on your way out or in. Food took a long time, some items were not available - but the lovely view on the beach made up for it.

Tilapia has nice food, but no place to swim. This one has a really nice beach and the food is quite ok.

Look out for menu inconsistencies, some items are much cheaper that others! Slow Service but a good view over the beach and the lake. On Sundays they have a bouncy castle and water slide for the children (at a nominal cost).
