The ACs are directly over the bed in the bedrooms and make it tough to sleep. But the food is amazing. All the outlets are really very good. Swimming pool very clean and poolside snacks and drinks are delicious.

Good service that is constantly worked on with a real commitment to customer service. Great vibe nice surroundings and excellent food. Breakfast is okay but not fantastic but the food and the fact you have a wide variety of options all the time makes it excellent for feeding. Not cheap but decent value for Lagos. Fantastic pool area and great... More

My husband and I were "demobing" and were responsible to pay for our own hotel before leaving V.I. The acting "GM" Mr. Bernard Zaatar, heard about our dilemma and offered a discounted rate to stay at the Blowfish Hotel. We have eaten at all the outlets that Blowfish has to offer but have never stayed at their hotel. We immediately... More

A good hotel in all with well kept room and an array of restaurants. The beds are comfy but the duvets are far too think for a climate as warm as Lagos. The staff are attentive and helpful and blend in well with the establishment. The breakfast buffet is of a good standard and food can be ordered both internally... More

I must say it was a very pleasant surprise. The hotel facilities were very ok- (not luxurious but very acceptable) the staff were helpful and quick to attend to complaints. Decent... More

Stayed for 3 days at Blowfish in Feb. Given the exorbitant hotel rates in Nigeria , for around $200 this is value for money compared to others. Pros - location if your business is in Victoria Island. Helps avoid the nightmarish traffic in Lagos - clean, comfortable rooms - wide variety of good options to choose from , including indian... More
