Secluded resort
It was a bit of rocky ride to the hotel but well worth it- almost safari like. However, when we arrived at the resort, it's secluded, peaceful, relaxing and clean with birds chirping around the compound and even some wild life (monkeys). We saw the New Year by the log fire on the beach- it was lovely- nice chalets and staff although the service was occasionally below par. Wifi was only available in the office but on the last night the manager gave us a complimentary connection to the chalet.

4/10 Fair

Staff try but are poorly trained. Shuttle service to airport is expensive. Hotel is at the end of a long, hilly, small dirt road.

Nice place pity about power issues
Wonderfull location on shores of Lake Victoria. About 10km of dirt road to reach it, some of it challenging without a 4x4. Service and food were good. The resort is let down by lack of electricity. The rooms had no electric during the days and went off several hours before daylight. They claim to be using solar energy backed up with generators but think this is a cost saving exercise. Beers are kept in a fridge at the bar but unfortunately the fridge is rarely working so beers are warm.. the pool was clean and a nice area to sit.

The gate was closed
After a very long journey on a dusty and bumpy road in the darkness I have reached the Garuga Beach Resort Hotel only to face the closed gate and switched off phone. Apparently it was fully booked and they somehow missed my reservation. Not recommended.

Great stay at Garuga
Amazing place with beautiful landscape and views of lake Victoria! It was above and beyond my expectations. Our room was very big, equipped with everything we needed and had a beautiful lake view. The hotel staff was amazing too, especially Phiona and also Stuart and Wilson! Definitely a great place for nature lovers.

Alcohol alleen per fles verkocht, geen witte wijn.Goede prijs/ kwaliteit verhouding.

6/10 Good

Et sted med potientiale
Stedet ligger fantastisk, hvis man ønsker at slappe af. Men der er ikke meget andet at lave end at ligge ved stranden og poolen. Poolen var ikke rengjort, og kunne derfor ikke bruges. Mad og service fra personalet var meget godt, men der er problemer med strømmen. Så øl, vand m.m. var ikke kolde, der var ikke strøm på værelset i dagtimerne. Herudover stod der i beskrivelsen, at der var gratis transport til og fra lufthavnen. Der var ikke tilfældet. Det kostede cirka 30 USD hver vej.
