Makindye Country Club Jul 12, 2014
The Makindye Country Club is on Makindye Hill, and will be shown on older maps as the American Recreation Association (ARA); it changed its name about a year ago.
It is mainly a recreation club, but has some rooms for rent as well. The accommodation is very clean, and the compound is very secure. There is a gym, squash and tennis courts (and a tennis coach), a nice pool, and quite a nice little play park for children.
If you stay, try to get one of the rooms in the outbuildings further away from the road, as the rooms in the main building are close to the road and can be quite noisy at night from the bars and traffic; the further off ones are much quieter. Not all rooms are en suite, but the ones that share bathrooms don't share between more than two or three people and it's not a problem. There are good mosquito nets, and fans but no A/C.
The staff are very helpful.
The restaurant is nice. Free breakfast is a huge amount of fruit and some toast or a croissant - cooked breakfast is a little extra. You can get lunch and dinner in the restaurant and the food is good.
There is free wifi with a voucher if you are staying or using the facilities. It is possible to pay a fee just to use the pool and sports facilities for the day.
