This "auberge" is certainly the place with the most caracter in Grandpopo. We slept in the old big building which overlooks a parc and a bit firther way, the beach. The rooms are really not more than basic, but they do if you want to be in such a historic building. The food is nice if you stay for one... More

absolutely brilliant place to escape the hardships of the West African road. Decent value, excellent food, interesting building, somewhat dangerous beach. Some interesting trips nearby but be careful with the semi-official guides...

We spent a great afternoon at the restaurant here and ate wonderful food. A really original menu and good service. All the food was well cooked. The terrace overlooks a beautiful beach, which was deserted when we visited. We didn't stay but the rooms looked comfortable.

The first review I ever did for tripadvisor was for this hotel which I used to love more than any other beach hotel in the world. I still love it; it's still exceptional in its intimacy and location. I have been there several times since my tripadvisor review. I find that the quality of the service, which used to be... More

I enjoyed my stay over the Easter period. The staff were helpful and friendly, the food was very acceptable. The rooms were ok (just) I think they are in need of a bit of an upgrade, an air-conditioned would be nice but even more useful would be a small fridge just to keep a couple of drinks cool. I went...

This place is the best choice in Grand Popo. We stayed there for 2 nights. It is a great place, very nice and calm atmosphere, wonderful architecture, helpful personnel and great view. The military base nearby is not a problem, as you will not figure out if you do not walk along the beach. I can recommend this hotel warmly,... More

Yes, the location is beautiful, the garden and old-style buildings give it a certain atmosphere. The restaurant overlooks the sea and the garden. But, this place urgently needs a grade-up. The rooms are dirty to say, the curtains smell dust. With two in a bed you can be sure it becomes cosy since the mattresses need replacement. Spots in the... More

The Auberge rooms are spread on a large areal which makes this spot a perfect place for a romantic getaway. The restaurant serves delicious food but is a bit slow. The beer is cold. Prizes both for rooms and the restaurant are catering to tourists. There is a small souvenir shop. Folks here are also happy to organize a tour... More

I have been staying at this hotel for many years and have always loved it, and still do. The last time I was there, however, in March of 2012, the fresh water swimming pool had been filled with salt water, a big disappointment. Further, they have just built a military installation almost next door with a big observation tower which... More

The hotel itself has a lot of charm and character but it needs a better management. The front desk staff is not friendly and some of the rest of the staff is also anything but motivated. Some are nice however. I would only go there again if the hotel gets renovated and a new team.
