The staff at the hotel are kind and take amazing care of their guests. We were there during a difficult time for the city and they went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and had a good stay. The comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, good food and clean rooms made for a perfect place to stay... More

This hotel is safe and secure. Not really located in the center, but there is not much to see in the center either. If you are mostly coming to relax, I would recommend staying at a hotel on the lake and take a taxi once or twice to the center, rather than take a taxi each day to the lake... More

I am completely satisfied by their service, security (due to American Embassy nearby), food, non ambitious staff for tips, air conditioning, mosquito nets, safety box etc. flexible service and you can ask for breakfast without extra cost too! Slightely isolated from town but worth for price.

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
