The hotel is situated on the beach with lovely waves for surfers. It is a very nice escape and lovely place to stay at if you work in Congo Town or ELWA. The rooms are in several small separate villas The rooms are very comfortable. The menu is quite small but good. Breakfast is great. The Sunday buffet which is... More

If you are looking for a safe, nice place to just kick back and soak in the sun while in Monrovia, this has to be on top of your list. I really enjoyed it, I've been looking for a place where I can just let my guard down and just relax, well I found it, and they have good barbque... More

Visited this place on a number of occasions in December and January. Very easy to get to from Congo Town. Beautiful beach and great beach barbeque for lunch. The staff were most courteous and welcoming. A great day out if you are staying somewhere else. The entry coupon can be used against food ordered either on the beach or at... More

The resort is amazingly beautiful like something you only see in magazines. The beach is pristine, the sand is golden and the food is mmm, mmm, good. I had the luxury of lounging under a palm tree while listening the the waves and the tunes of Michael Jackson in the background. Be sure to order the drink in a pineapple.... More

I can't comment on costs, as my room was paid for, but it is very comfortable, has a pool, gym, laundry service and reasonable variety of menu options. The setting next to the beach is lovely, the rooms are good-sized and well-appointed, and the food is very good. Staff where friendly and helpful. More reliable internet would have been great,...

The setting can not be beat. The ocean and beach are beautiful and the grounds are fairly well kept. The staff try but Westerners will likely find service and amenities lacking. I felt safe and comfortable, which costs for a lot when working in West Africa. I do wish internet worked better but this may be less a hotel issue... More

I. visited it with some friends. the place is nice and clean but the staff are not well prepared. I'm not sure if it is by their own "culture" or simply the woman who receive us was a "slightly rude". the prices inside are expensive. A cheap weekend room is over 300 usd! Too much for an average turist.

In my views, this is the best hotel in Monrovia these days. Located between the airport and the city and featuring a nice beach and good facilities, this resort property is quiet and relaxing, whether you are here for a getaway week-end or in town on business. I stayed there few times over the last couple years and had no... More

Yes it is Monrovia and if you compare with what else you view on the way to the hotel then it is 6/5. There are a few little things that detract - first room didn't open because lock was inoperable (!!) but that was rectified in a short while. Room fridge didn't work - and wasn't plugged in. All else... More

Due to the awesome time we had last time we thought why not celebrate again this year at RLJ Kendeja. My son was excited as we pulled up to the location and said "Finally the pool and beach". We checked in on Friday and had a excellent three course meal. Now the meal we had last time was good, but... More
