The hotel is good, the room is clean and tidy. As an Egyptian the food options are limited but they are delicious. The pool is a lovely place to hang out at night. The staff are welcoming and nice. Though it's my first visit to Nigeria. It is a nice place

The Hotel is good but they could be better, their personnel is good and they are friendly though I had delay at certain times I needed their assistance, had a swell time at the buffet dinners. I didn't get to use the pool but I looked tidy enough and was cool to hang around on a sunny day. Their rooms... More

I checked in. Took about an hour because they couldn't find my reservation. Eventually taken care. Got into the room, looked unkept. Then tried to use the Internet and didn't see any wifi. Called front desk and they said, yes, there is no internet in that room. You have to come downstairs. Then I tried to shower. No warm water.... More

This is without a doubt the worst hotel I've EVER stayed in. Service is non-existent, people are rude, it's expensive, breakfast is NASTY, the swimming pool is disgusting, and the rooms are simply not up to the standards of even a 1 star hotel. Save your money and try something else.

I have stayed at the Bolingo 2 times, the first 4 years ago and then just recently. The first time I stayed there, the Bolingo was a very nice hotel. This recent stay was a big disappointment. I checked in on a Tuesday. The receptionist gave me a key and no explanation of the usual services. I had to ask... More

I just spent the night there 2 days ago and it was a terrible experience. The paint from the front door was fading away and the different blue tones in the room is really of bad taste and darkened the room which has limited amount of light. The bathroom was a nightmare in terms of cleanliness. There was no hot... More

This hotel is definitely not worth the price tag. It is unnecessarily dirty; the shower makes a noise like a machine gun and comes out brown or black often. Getting internet is a way more difficult than it needs to be. And the AC units make a very loud grinding noise that will wake you up in the middle of... More

The hotel is acceptable, only the air con in the meeting rooms is really bad: with any power interruption it switches off. And since the power cuts occur frequently, it gets rather hot...And the other thing that is really not good is room service - calculate ap 1 hr for the food to arrive. For the rest, it is nothing...

I've used this hotel on two occasions and the latest was on the 1st and 2nd February 2013. The drive way from the main gate is so welcoming - green and refreshing. I never had any issues with the reception as i was promptly checked-in during my visits. But inside the room, is a different matter. The first room i... More

I stayed Feb 18 - 22, 2013. Bottom line: If better hotels are booked, this could be a minimally acceptable last choice. However, if you have a choice, stay at the Dunes, the Hilton, the Sheraton, the Protea or somewhere else. The other hotels are not great, but this one is pretty bad. It is within walking distance of the... More
