a great place
A great place. Had a great 4 days here. We drove in--I would recommend a driver or flying in as the road is very difficult. Saw everything possible as far as wildlife. Loved it!

There’s a reason Fairmont is a cut above the rest... just simply the best properties, facilities and most of all service. Service at the Fairmont Mara was the most genuine I’ve ever experienced. The staff cater to your every need and do it with a smile - everything just seems natural, and you can tell they went through the process of ensuring they hired the right personnel. We were met at the airstrip with nice refreshments and small cold towels, followed by a quick 10 min ride to the facility. Check in was relaxed and seamless. The tents were just beautiful - have everything you would need yet you still feel like you are one with nature. The facilities are impeccably maintained. Included in the price are 3 sumptuous meals a day - can’t beat full board! The bar was well stocked and though the premium drinks are a tad pricey, the service makes them well worth it. Tea, coffee, cookies and hot chocolate are complimentary and available 24 hrs/day. The game drives were just awesome! Two game drives a day included in the price, and our driver Jeremiah knew the Mara inside and out - he has been there 21 years and has such a wealth of knowledge! We saw all the animals you could think of - plenty of elephants, lions, giraffe, cheetahs, rhinos, hyenas, warthogs, antelopes, hippos... you name it! Just barely missed catching the big 5 as two leopards disappeared from our view. Overall I was totally impressed with the Fairmont and will certainly be back.

Charging like a 5 * hotel for a 3 * service!
Charging like a 5 star hotel for a 3 star service! Very very disappointing stay! 1) Hotel feels dead (no atmosphere at all) 2) Charges everything as extras on check out (you end up paying more than a 5 star hotel), (supposedly all inclusive but charges u even for water and soft drinks, park entrance...) 3) Service is bad: whatever you order the reception asks you to come pick it up by yourself! 4) Internet only works at the reception 5) Safari drives: the driver would drop us at the hotel half an hour before drop off scheduled time 6) Asked to borrow a mosquito repellent at dinner and they didn’t even have that (in a safari camp)!

This is my second time at the hotel and I’m already planning when I can return. The manager is fabulous and went out of his way to resolve everything when our luggage was lost by the airline. Everyone who works there goes above and beyond. John will make sure you have everything you need when you eat and Steve Larry makes delicious food. Hannah is so sweet and helpful in the gift shop. Joshua took great care of our room. Hot water bottles are left in the bed so it’s extra snuggly when you sleep and he wakes you up with coffee, Kenyan tea or hot chocolate. Last but not least, our incredible guide was Jonathan. I brought my husband back to Kenya for our honeymoon because of my first experience with Jonathan as a guide. He is incredible-let him teach you and I promise you’ll leave with Kenya and the Mara strongly placed in your heart.
