It is a beautiful place which is a bit off the beaten tracks. The rooms are basic but with a lovely stoop to sit on out front.The food is presented well but lacks taste and the staff have poor English so unless you speak French, communication is a bit trickery. They have 3 pools, beach front, lawn tennis, cycling,night club... More

After having traveled all through West Africa, this place was a nice retreat. Nice clean bungalows, good service, smiling people. Fresh ocean breezes and beautiful beach walks. Feels a bit deserted and out of the way, but that was just what we wanted after our trip. Restaurant just okay, but drinks nice and cold. Pool lovely.

Probably one of the nicest locations in Benin. Bungalows on the beachfront are really nice and Clean. If you want an individual fridge you have to take the VIP, (which are double the size) Unfortunatly food quality and service are not as good as it should be. Place is certainly overrated but as they have no rival. We will certainly... More

We were absolutely thrilled to spend a night on the beach in this charming, well-appointed, serene bungalow. The pool looked lovely but we arrived too late to enjoy. Listening to the pounding waves at the beachside bar and dining tables was exquisite. Food was good, not great, but we're not here as foodies. Very pleasant service; intermittent electricity in the... More

We walked into our cabin and were pleasantly surprised. Screened windows with plantation shudders with the Atlantic in view. There were no frills, no fancy towels, but there was something Comfy about the cabin. We could hear the ocean and its waves all night long...very soothing. Nothing fancy, but very comfortable. The food wasn't all that great but this trip... More

otherwise would be mediocre. Food is OK, setting is pleasant and easy to walk over to monumnet showing where over 10,000 slaves annually walked their last steps on African soil to slavery from the fort area. Its a 2 mile walk a nd with a good guide fascinating. AC works well, its a lovely setting on beach with quite a... More

I first heard about this place from friends who made an official vacation to the place, and decided I had to visit with my fiancé. It had loads of activities and fun things to do, however, by 7pm the entire place was quiet and we had nothing to do. It would have been awesome if the bar had a dj... More

For the second time, we spent New year's eve there again this year, as a matter of fact we were there for 2 nights 3 days. The food was terrible! As usual, overpriced and we had the chicken, fish and mutton leftovers, over and over again, barbecued, grilled, in a sauce or with a dressing. The a la carte food... More

My stay at Casa was overall a nice one. I am not too impressed with the room though, meals are expensive but you definitely will get a value for your money - meals are "cette superb" in my words. The beach view and a feel of nature was quite interesting (loved the location of my room). The road leading to... More

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
