Having lived in and travelled to many African countries it is always refreshing to come across a hidden gem when you least expect it. The price was good for starters, very easy to book and get your queries answered before you arrive. Friendly staff, clean , spacious rooms. Breakfast buffet had anything you could want and the dinner menu was... More

Pros: Good location, good access to the beach, and to be in Liberia, is probably one of the best. Cons: 1- there is a resident rat (1 foot long) running under the tables where food is served right in front of the kitchen door. This little pet must really enjoy the hotel because it has been seen so many times... More

i visited first time after ebola scare to Liberia and to my utmost unbelievable it was very cool and no fear of ebola anywhere as what outside world has thought of, in fact the comfort provided in the resort is you feel more like enjoying holiday.

I stayed because of my job for several months in Rlj Kendeja and i can only say positive things about the hotel. The staff is very friendly and the quality of the service is by far beyond average in West Africa. I would love to go back at least for a few days

$25 to get in BUT that $25 also goes towards your food and drink for the time you are there. Lovely setting around the small pool. Covered over dining area. Pathway leading to the chairs, loungers and tables on the beach looking out to sea. Good amount of shade available. Staff come to your loungers/ tables to serve you with... More

Four star Kendeja is about as far from the image of ‘Ebola-stricken Liberia’ as you could imagine. Past the comfortable and spacious bar area with plasma screens of BBC and CNN playing at a discreet level, there is a shady restaurant on a wooden deck around the stylishly black slate-lined infinity pool, flanked by lines of leather-cushioned mahogany recliners. Waving... More
