This trip was about relaxing,therefore my mission was accomplished. There are no amenities for entertainment. Well, you say it's an athlete's village. The advertised running trail is a grave, dirt and paved road which is less than mile. This was very disappointing for me. Although, not a runner I had hoped to take a long walk. This was impossible.
I used their shuttle service from Addis to the resort. The driver was on time and friendly. The ride was about 45 minutes. Half of the grounds are well-maintained(that's what you see on the website).The other side is still in its natural state. I visited during August. It was very cold. What is cold? There was a heater in my room and I used it all night under my thick duvet.The security staff were wrapped in blankets while patrolling. The food was basic. I ordered pizza, which was mostly cheddar cheese. For breakfast, half the items were not available. By the way, there was no hot water during my stay. There is no internet in this facility if you are planning to work.
