We stayed here for one night in a standard room as the hotel is nearby the airport and we had to catch an early flight. The room was a decent size and had good air conditioning, hot water and WiFi. The resort grounds are lovely and very well maintained. There is a pool, but we didn’t use it. We did sit outside at the bar. Drinks are somewhat pricey but that is to be expected at a high end hotel like this. The dinner buffet was good. The staff is very professional and provided quick service.

This is a huuuuge hotel which has everything. Unfirtunately though the rooms are old and out of date. Food is ok, but was the least exciting of all of our 10 days Uganda eating experiences. Fantastic pool, which we had to ourself most of the time, but imagining it at full capacity plus daily guests ay the weekend - no, thank you. I suggest this hotel to groups and families - not to couples who either want to be alone or some stylish features and tasty food.

It was a luxurious experience. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole time, natural beauty of the place and the friendly staff who are always at your service. The golf course is absolutely amazing. The views are mesmerizing. Comfort in the rooms is best in the world.

I have to say that Lake Victoria Serena Serena Golf Resort has a great location overlooking Lake Victoria. The staff was polite and friendly. My reason for giving it such a poor review was that the lousy food in the restaurant. There was only a buffet available and the choice of dishes wasn't very good. What was available was tasteless. The only I could eat was cheese which was available at both breakfast and dinner. It's hard to believe that what is supposedly a five-star hotel offers its guests such bad food. The hotel has to improve this.

It’s only day one of my retreat but I am already so impressed I will pen an early retreat. First off, this hotel has the most impressive COVID-19 control measures I have yet seen. The condition of my room is so impressive I want to stay here a little longer. The drumhead thundering shower! Sad the hotel failed to guarantee me a room with the view that I wanted. I have no idea why. The walk in the golf course this morning hearing the sounds of the birds and seeing the rising sun peeping over the horizon, the dew on the immaculate greens is really an amazing experience. The breakfast on the terrace was amazing. The omelette with cheese is one I will remember a while. Dinner was underwhelming, with no conviction, non-committal neither Ugandan nor continental. I really want to make this place part of a routine holiday at least a few times a year

Dear peeUG, Thank you very much for taking time to review and share your wonderful experience about your stay with us. I am glad you were impressed by our Covid-19 health and safety protocols. As part of our continuous commitment, our protocols have been designed to ensure an ultimate guest experience and the well-being of our staff. I also appreciate the fact that you liked our serene environment and the breakfast especially omelette with cheese. It is indeed regrettable that the food served during dinner was below your expectation. I have shared your concern with the chef so as to include variety of dishes to suit different tastes. I appreciate that we might not get it right all the time but would hope that when there is a lapse, we really try to rectify it during the guests stay, to ensure that they leave us feeling happy and relaxed. Please accept my sincere apology for not informing you at the point of check-in as to why you were not given a room with a view you wanted. Majority of the rooms were disinfected and left for 24hrs before being allocated to any guest as a measure to prevent Covid-19. Thank you once again for this important feedback and for making this resort as part your routing holiday destination. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Kind regards
