We had a great stay at Kapenta Bay Hotel. The overall service and stay was great. It is like home away from home. I would recommend this venue as it is value for money and has much to offer to their guests. Well done Kapenta Bay - it is a great place to stay.

We found the booking and service staff very efficient, friendly and accommodating. Room were clean and met all our expectation. Views are stunning.

The hotel room was clean, and the restaurant was also clean but the menu was not that good as your choices was limited, you will end up having same menu every day. The area of the hotel is in a good area.
