Munyonyo Commonwealth Resort really has not changed at all since I last visited more than 6 months back, same great services, well maintained gardens, smiling and welcoming staff. Really enjoyed my two days stay attending a conference this time. Also got opportunity to go to the nearby attractive places using a day trip option. The food was really amazing.
