This was the fourth time we stayed at this hotel. It is a charming oasis, away from the traffic and noise of the city. The rooms are clean, spacious, and overlook the swimming pool and the nearby lake. We also loved to eat there. Their food is delicious and inexpensive. The staff is delightful and we always feel, every time... More

The room was comfortable and clean, and the staff exceptionally kind. The room brochure mentions a gift shop/bazaar, but there is actually not... More

Rooms were large and spacious although I did get an electric shock from a lamp. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, they went out of their way to service... More

Large rooms overlooking the lake. Good buffet b&d. Reasonable prices. A quiet place far away from noisy traffic. Yet only half an hour away from downtown Alexandria. Some African decor. The garden is green and beautiful.

It's a nice peaceful hotel, largely because of the ocean theme - the hotel and the rooms are decorated The restaurant in the lobby is nice for breakfast, we didn't eat anything else there - staff are very friendly and the service is quick. In general, all the staff were very friendly actually. There's no hotel self-parking, but there's a... More

I have spent 8 nights at Africana, during a business training. The meeting room (Ball room) was cozy and nice. It was furnished as requested, and the staff responded to all our requests. Sometimes the service wasa bit slow, however people were always smilling and doing their best to provide everything on time. The overall theme of the hotel is... More
