First time in Congo and what an amazing well run and serviced hotel. Rooms were clean, spacious and very well kept, the villas are amazing. Food is really good and great breakfast spread. Friendliest staff ever and very welcoming. This was probably my best stay in a hotel in Africa by far, also a great place to just go relax... More
