I really enjoyed this resort. not so much the rooming facility as the general ambience and serenity of the environment. The rooms can certainly do with some upgrades, but the outdoors is heavenly here as you'd expect from a hotel built in a lush green environment located just by the sea. i thoroughly enjoyed night stroll around the expansive facility...

Me and my wife went to Whispering Palms for our honeymoon. Frankly speaking the roads are bad. However the serenity, ambience and beauty of the resort makes up for all the hassles me we faced on the road. They have a beautiful array of well nutured gardens, nature at its finest. Thankfully they had a line up of activities for... More

I come to Whispering Palms regularly. The road is bad, so I sometimes go by boat. However, when going by road, i make an effort to leave home very early. Whispering Palms is my home away from home in Lagos. It's peaceful and restful and it's my place for recharging my batteries. My ideal morning is to sit in the... More

Stayed here with a large group and was not impressed, everything is managed even upto food. Buffet is not a spread at all. Ate at least 5 meals without a single slice of fruit, at a resort. New management needs to sit up fast. It is a hassle getting there, but good services could make up for it.

Getting there is a hassle. The road being bad is an understatement. It is at least 2.5 hours from the airport. Once you get there, the place is quiet. The air is clean. The staff are nice. Facilities are however aging and could be better maintained. The food in the place is ok. There is ample space for sports and... More

The environment is superb and serene. Good outdoor bar, good sand beach sit-outs, poor front desk but excellent lagoon view. However, the services are poor and you have to keep your belongings because of theft. Staffs should be properly trained.

I stayed at this resort between December 26th and 29th with my family. The room (Swimming Pool block) was averagely okay though over-priced. One can see that the Management has made attempts to diversify the attractions in the resort though a lot of the present attractions are clearly run down. The 'zoo' is a joke. Two diseased looking baboons, two... More
