I do not even know where to begin or how to express my displeasure in this forsaken place! From black mold growing in your hotel rooms and on your clothes and luggage to the rude housekeeping/hotel staff. For starters the hotel was undergoing major renovations during my stay (which they did not mention when reservations took place) and the noise... More

I was here for the third time and I could say that it is pretty much the same. I stayed longer this time round - about 7 nights. The service is pretty much the time. Their breakfast menu did not change at all the whole week I was here. I can even remember the dishes by name by the time... More

I cherished the location of the hotel - right beside the beach and the Ocean and very close to the airport, as well as the facilities in the room. I did hear from other colleagues who came for the same conference that I was in there, that in some rooms, there were issues, which took a day or two to... More

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip. It is beautiful and the rooms are nice. However, I felt like English-speaking customers do not receive a 100% customer service because the staff are not very much conversant with the language. I realised that the staff wanted to give more in terms of customer care but they were restricted because... More

I spent three nights here attending a business conference. Overall, this was a good placed to stay - room was spacious, if a little dated with great view over the ocean. The food was good, with great variety. Power cuts happen from time to time, but that was across the district so not the hotel's fault - if annoying! I... More

Surrounded by the Atlantic sea, a breathtaking view, romantic and very practical to conduct business. Close to the airport and easy access to the business district area. A nice golf and plenty of fish restaurants in the vicinity. A smell and sound of Africa.

The grounds and pool are very nice. The food however, was near in edible. I ordered 5 different dishes and found all of them to be less than mediocre. If I have to stay here again for work I will be packing my own food. The rooms are ok, no coffee and tea maker and phone didn't work. The bathrooms... More

Hotel was a little run down, it seemed fairly clean but was showing its age. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is right on the water and has a golf course on site. It is not downtown so you would need a taxi to get anywhere. There was security at the front but gate not closed at all times.

Good option for the business traveler, but don’t expect a lot. Kind of musty; the air conditioning did not work quite right. Also the furnishings were a bit frayed, but it was close to the airport and had a good breakfast, so it was fine.
