Anyone expecting Western standards in West African hotels is likely to be disappointed
(unless you've very deep pockets). I recently spent 9 weeks in the de Renaissance, so good and bad points. Don't stay above the 3rd floor - the water pressure doesn't make it. My room was large and well cleaned every day ( except for the window sills). The grouting in the bathroom did leak but I was pleased to be getting the hot water! The pool worked but the gym equipment didn't. They were ripping it out as I left so maybe it does now. I found the staff helpful and friendly( where they didn't have to keep quiet about the water pressure) and the food fine ( depends on your expectations). The manager, Neil, worked exceptionally hard. The location is great with the Shoprite mall next door. I was pleased to be going back there every day, particularly when I heard about others' experiences in different hotels. The internet wifi access was sometimes dodgy. I'm not sure whether they could do much about it.
