As long as you can take the rather... 'Rustic' road to this resort.. There really is no reason to stay elsewhere. Delightfully appointed bungalow style accommodation backing either onto the beach or lagoon.. Each air conditioned tastefully appointed and clean offer a wonderful place to relax - think Miami style. Throw in excellent facilities.. Especially notable pools.. As well as... More

Pluses The resort is quite beautiful. The view is amazing, especially on the beach side. We stayed in a privilege room and I think the extra few bucks was definitely worth it. The resort was very tranquil and peaceful, a nice getaway from the rest of the world. The rooms were clean, and had a TV and refrigerator. The TV... More

even though this place is not very far from Cotonou.....the road was in extremely bad condition. It took us 2 hours to get there....but once arrived I was charmed by the place. The hotel, it's restaurant, it's in house spa. We spent one night there, early in the morning we were awoken by the noise of the birds knocking at... More

I have been to many West African resorts and the hotel itself was nice by many standards. However, the poor service and expensive price stood out even by West Africa standards. The worst part was that the hotel charged $30 for a 11 km trip into town. As the hotel has a monopoly on this service, make sure you either... More

Spent two nights here. its a massive property which you can reach after a hectic but scenic 7 KM drive on the rough patch of a beach from the city. Its probably the best so far we have seen in West Africa. If youre coming from Nigeria, you might want to not go back :-) Food - options but limited... More

Language is a little problem as people don't understand English. French is more commonly used. Otherwise rest well all okay. Decent beaches. Average swimming pool. Overall a decent... More

We only stayed there one night. It is nice to relax there but there is no much to do. You better go there with a group of friends. The best thing is that the rooms are on the beach so you sleep with the sound of the waves. there is a spa that looks very good just next to the... More

The resort at Casa del Papa in Ouidah is in a beautiful setting. That's roughly about it. Ouidah is worth a trip when traveling in West Africa, the Musee Zinzou should not be missed. But the Casa del Papa is a disappointment, especially after one has read the reviews on trip advisor and in different guide books. The food was... More

I stayed here near the end of a two week trip to West Africa and loved being so close to the beach. I stayed in one of the bungalows on the beach side, where I could sit on my porch and look at the palm trees and crashing waves. Each bungalow contains only two units so it is very peaceful... More
