I visited the hotel twice for an afternoon, the hotel was a lovely get away from the city, the food was fine, the atmosphere was relaxing. the pool was good. The waves are a bit strong for swimmers so most people just stick to the beach.

Lovely hotel on the beach. Restaurant service is very slow seems disorganised. Housekeeping is not consistent, they clean room and take used towels but do not replace them and you have to phone to get more towels which then take them ages to deliver to the room.

Depends on what we are rating! The room was nice, comfortable bed, nice bathroom, fridge, well catered for, although housekeeping could do with a shake up! Front desk staff, great, very courteous and helpful. Bar staff very slow and not that friendly, same for the dining room staff. Real shame as this hotel has all the potential. Waited up to... More

The Kendeja resort is around 40 minutes from Roberts Airport, half-way into Monrovia. It is on the beach front and set in well kept gardens and decks. The beach looked clean, with plenty of loungers available, and I was told by fellow guests that the water was very good for surfing. Service at the front desk was courteous and generally... More

Beautiful hotel & views. Excellent restaurant--American and Liberian food..service very slow though...you should plan to spend a lot of relaxing time in restaurant. The breakfast buffet was really nice! Excellent, friendly staff. Security attentive but not intrusive. Consistent intermittent issues with connectivity to Wi-Fi and room telephone.

I usually go to the RLJ Kendeja on a Saturday or Sunday to enjoy the beach with my husband. RLJ is the only hotel with beach side location in Monrovia where one can enjoy a day on the beach. Most of our friends go to RLJ for the location on the beach and not for the food and the service.... More

By African standards, this is a very nice hotel. Set right on the beach, with plenty of loungers both there and by the pool. Rooms are chalet/bungalow style and could be better soundproofed, but they are comfortable and the beds offer a good night's sleep. There is free wifi throughout the Hotel, a bit patchy at times and it works... More

I have been travelling for business and pleasure in Africa for 30 years and considering that this place is well away from any tourist trail and considering that there is very little competition by way of quality hotels in this small country I consider that the RLJ Kendeja Resort operates to a surprisingly high standard.
