The Eko location, by the sea, is great. The hotel complex being furthermore large, it helps foreign travellers feeling less "trapped" if they do not want to go outside by night. So when I was told I'd be staying at the Eko, I liked the idea. And my first contact with the hotel was nice, the reception area being outdoor (of course protected from the rain).
Check-in was smooth. I got a room almost at the top of the hotel. When getting to my floor though, I found the corridor very faded. The door of the room was quite loose (although it locked well). The room was very oldish. While the bed was all right and the bathroom somewhat refurbished, I had the overall impression it was 30+ years old (i.e. from the late 70s when the hotel was built). The windows wasn't furthermore closing properly. Quite poor.
The swimming pool is large and nice.
Breakfast was all right with lots of choice, by the pool. I had furthermore a couple of dinners there, at the Sky restaurant on the top floor (see my review there: http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g304026-d4507287-Reviews-Sky_Restaurant-Lagos_Lagos_State.html) and one by the pool (Italian buffet - quite average).
Wifi all right for Nigeria.
All in all, I'd probably stay elsewhere next time I'll be in Lagos.
