The staff were super friendly and helpful, arranging for our airport transfers and transportation to our meeting venue. The room was clean and cosy. With DSTV and free wifi. The pool looked so inviting, but I was unfortunately, not able to make good use of it. The breakfast was well done and the welcome "pure pineapple juice" was a delight.... More

Communication was a little difficult at times, as we do not speak French and only a few of the staff spoke English but that was expected before arrival, since English is not generally taught in the schools.
