The nicest little resort I have found in all of Africa so far. The bungalows are perfectly decorated, set in a lush terraced garden. There is a private beach and a lovely bar right on the beach which makes for great sunset viewing. The restaurant is pleasantly set and serves good food. Great attention is given to every detail. Staff... More

I didn’t overnight at this hotel but I visited often a friend and I loved to go early in the evening, have a fresh jus or beer on the beach and move to the fine restaurant. I believe it's the best restaurant in town in terms of quality and gourmand. The variety of dishes is amazing all well prepared good... More

Most reviewers love this place with it's charming but secure layout and full range of facilities (short of wifi in all the rooms - dongle to borrow at the bar). The Swiss German creator of Ilomba is now retired, though still involved from time to time and her daughter has taken over. I've been there time and again over the... More

Kribi isn't the Maldives but it's beaches are surely as good as they get in Cameroon. the place is very relaxing and hotel Ilomba is a must go to. Don't expect luxury, good internet connection or other usual standards but expect to have time to relax, eat great fresh food, a good swim and focusing on, and talking to, those... More

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
