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

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
