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

I had been there in Dec 2013 for a 2 day trip during Christmas. It was a nice resort as per African Standards. Limited option in fooding specially if your a vegetarian. 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

The resort at Casa del Papa in Ouidah is a wonderful place for a weekend getaway. It is far removed from the hustle of big city life with its noise and pollution. The drive there from Lagos took about five hours but mostly because of border delays and bad roads. But once you are there, it is a serene and... More

Spent most of the day here on the last day of my 2nd trip to Benin. The Beach Road to Ouidah from Cotonou was idyllic in every way. Lunch on the veranda by the beach was splendid. The ocean breeze, and watching the local fishermen haul in their catch added to a perfect ambiance that brought refreshment after a long... More

This was the best hotel we stayed out during our trip to Benin and Togo. The food was excellent and the pools were divine. The ocean had a red flag during our visit, so we didn't try the surfing -- maybe next time! The bungalow was very spacious -- large king sized bed and places to put things. We wished... More

It's a pretty resort lcated on a secluded beach. Very pretty, peaceful and tranquil. The food is great ( apart gtom breakfast which is rather bare). The beach bungalows oversee the ocean; you can hear the sound of waves from your room (and the sea gulls too!) which was one of the high Iights of my visit. There's also a... More
