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

I was staying in this hotel 3 nights and I can say for the destination this hotel is out of this world... However of course this is very relative to the rest of Monrovia with its lack of infrastructure. Rooms are mostly clean /well maintained with good air con. Bearing in mind there are so many insects outside of your... More

Arriving in Monrovia, we stayed at RLJ for one night. I immediately jumped into the pool, which is somewhat modelled on the infinity pool concept. It was cool and relaxing, with an ocean view. I spent half a day in the spa which was an excellently managed facility. I had three treatments done, and felt confident in the services provided.... More

My experience at RLJ was wonderful. This hotel is by far the very best in Liberia. The Beach Resort property is elegant and first class in all areas, i.e. Rooms, Dining, Pool, Beach. More importantly the team of staff members are very committed to ensuring your every wish or need is met. The beach is fabulous and well maintained. Security... More

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.
