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

Haven read all the reviews about this place, I naturally expected the worst and I got a bit of that. Rooms were poorly maintained. But generally it was a good experience. The owners are doing a great job @ preserving nature. Enough serenity to Think and reflect. The icing on the cake which really made out stay spectacular was the... More

Please visit this 'resort' if you are dying for a view of slivers of the Lagoon through the obstruction of a concrete forest. Otherwise, talk a walk down third mainland bridge in Lagos. The view there is much nicer. In short, do not choose this place as a destination off the internet, you will highly likely face a bitter disappointment.... More

This could be the best place to be in Nigeria. Alas it is not maintained. And it's unduly expensive for the quality I experienced. Rooms are substandard, beddings are very old, even the beautiful exteriors which should be manicured are left to their own device. Give me that place and 2 years and you won't be able to leave when... More
