It was a great stay we had, although the Covid restrictions made it a little uncomfortable, where we had to make a special request for our luxury room to be serviced.
All in all, the staff are very Covid aware and respect the rules.
The staff were al very friendly.
all in all, a nice weekend away.
We visited Aquila 4 years ago and decided to come back with our daughter. It was good then but there have been significant improvements since, including better check-in and the addition of an indulgent spa (over 16's only). The number of animals in the reserve had also increased which made for a great game drive.
