I stayed for 5 days and i really liked it. The customer service was almost good.The swimming pool was empty at all time it was really what i wanted it. A quiet place and air condition room and a whole swimming pool for me. Well done and keep up the good work. Mr Idro

Where to start! 1:It seams the staff dont understand the concept of air-conditioning, I tried to explain it cools the air in a room and doors/windows need to be closed for it to work correctly. They insisted the wind helps it. 2: No kitchen facilities, when we asked for food on the first day it took about 2 hours to... More

Unfortunately most of the decent hotels in Djibouti were full so we were placed in this one. The rooms were very basic and looking very tired. The shower was like a trickle and there was no running hot water. The bedding was very old and worn, The sheets didn't fit well. Room did have A/C and now has free WiFi.... More

I really would like to say something nice about this place, but can only say that I am glad the room had air conditioning. The hotel is desparately outdated. The pool water was green. The pool bar was... More

The service was excellent and the price was right. Can't complain about the simming pool. This hotel rates high above other local hotels when it comes to cleanliness.

Someone else's pubic hair in the bed. Sheets that were made for much smaller bed Shower that flooded the "bathroom". Wobbly seat on the loo. Disgusting smell from the "beach"/mud when the tide is out. Lunch of salad and chips took two hours to arrive. 15 minute walk from town
