Very good 8.0
Nice place in lake Victoria, with swimmingpool.
We were a group of 11 persons travelling around Uganda and want to stay overnight in a better hotel. It is a really nice place, but service can be a little bit better. But if you are very clear to the staf, they understand. The ferry from Kalangala to Entebbe takes only 8 vehicles, so do reservation in advance! I can recommend Brovad Sands, it´s a really nice place!

It was ok...
This was our last night of a self drive trip across Uganda. The staff were friendly and the place is pretty with good views over the lake. Check-in was slow and our room smelled damp and had no mosquito net. We wanted to use the pool but it was dirty. The bar area and our porch was loud because of teens playing loud music. We stayed on a Friday night and we think weekenders caused the hotel to be very busy and noisy, especially at dinner where there was a big queue for the buffet. Limited, but tasty vegetarian options. We wanted a chill the next day, but instead, reception called and woke us up at 7am to ask how we were going to pay. Breakfast was barely warm and felt like the previous night's leftovers. Overall, the stay was ok. I think we had high expectations for the hotel based on previous reviews...
