Very secure and peaceful hotel in the busyness of Lagos. Everything you need done is taken care of by friendly staff. Casino and gym available. The view from the rooms of harbour from the island it's unbelievable that one is in Lagos.

We checked a colleague into the room. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. It costs about $500 USD per night. We made use... More

We have stayed in a number of Lagos hotels and have to say FP is the best so far. The customer service in FP far exceeds what we usually receive. The Internet was not as strong as... More

Amongst all the good hotels and places to stay in Lagos, this is by far one of my favorites. The bedding is very confortable and the rooms are quite spacious, the lobby área is vast and very welcoming as well as the check-in facilities (no a counter but rather a private desk), then the food at the restaurant is great...
