Checked in for 1 night with my girlfriend at the end of a 4 week trip through Cameroon. Guide books had strongly suggested heading to the beach resort of Kribi to get away from the hectic life of Douala and Yaounde. The Hotel is just fantastic. Located just to the south of Kribi town. We got a taxi there from... More

Being there after a long trip around Cameroun an Central African republic, stay two nights there where like to be in paradise. Five minutes footstep to the Lobe Falls, wonderful beach, and very good meals. Rooms are clean and comfortable. I recommend you, sure.

The second time I've stayed at the Hotel Ilomba. Currently not very well signposted due to works to establish the new deep port in Kribi, but the advantage being that the road between Kribi and Ilomba is better than ever (by local standards!). On arrival it was apparent that the beach front has eroded significantly from last year. A very... More

Fabulous by local standards and great by western standard! It's a get away, further out of town so don't expect TV, internet and the like. But do expect a beautiful, relaxed setting, tasty food and good service.

Ilomba was warmly recommended to me but I was sorely disappointed. The hotel provides fairly spartan rooms with no tv's nor internet. The rooms have two basic chairs but not other furniture, nor is breakfast included. However Ilomba charged 40,000 Francs for such rooms, well above hotels like Framotel that do provide adequate services. When I confronted staff about what... More

The location of this Hotel is definitely worth the visit at least for 1 day. It's on the Kribi beach, from where you can walk to the Lobe waterfalls. The hotel restaurant (Terrasse) has great food at reasonable prices.

The accommodation was good, the location was excellent and the food was enjoyable. The staff were welcoming. It is probably expensive for a lot of the... More

As overlanders we didn't book the rooms in advance, as it turned out to be fully booked, but the owner was really nice and let us stay there with our on-top-car-tents. We enjoyed our time there very much. Peace and quiet, perfect place to relax. Top notch restaurant. The best choice was gnocchi with fresh tomato sauce and basil. One... More

Stayed at Ilomba twice, first time in cheaper stand-alone rooms and second in on of the Appartments. Staff are very attentive and for Cameroon it is one of the best places to stay we have found. A pool would be great as the sea can be a bit uninviting at times if there is an onshore wind. Generally clean and... More
