“Nice escape from Abidjan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We (two adults and two kids) stayed in one of the larger rooms, not one of the round ones. There was ample space for a couple of extra mattresses for the kids. Very quiet AC, a floor fan, a ceiling fan, a wall mounted flat screen tv and plenty of hot water. The walls had some African batiks and there was a small table chairs and a fridge as well. Fridge was very handy in storing our beach picnic food for the second day. The hotel recommended a guide, Elysee, who took us across the lagoon, (18 KM away by paved road) to the original village of Lahou on the barrier island, then he took us to a strip of beach that he maintains where we spent a couple of hours. We ate dinner one night in the hotel and it was fine. We ordered a couple of hours in advance. We also at breakfast in the hotel and it was also good, with fresh squeezed juice (but the ubiquitous Nescafe instant coffee). The grounds were very pleasant and well maintained and we also used the pool, which overlooks the valley. All in all, we will likely return to the property and do some further exploration of the area.

Room Tip: if you need more space, inquire about the availability of the larger room

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We were here (spent one night) together with 2other families + two singles and had a really good time.
The huts are rather small but there is room for one extra madrass on the floor for families (even two if you really want to squeeze in). They are simple and clean, nothing to complain about, but nothing fancy.

Restaurant - ivorian, pizzas, french cuisine. We tried a bit of everything and were happy. But our meals were always 30-60 late. The evening we got our meals at different times about 60-90min too late.
Breakfast - kind of standard - totally ok.

There is a swimmingpool on the edge to the valley (ravin) with a calm and good view. The water could absolutely be cleaner - both days we were there the poolguy started cleaning once we came to take a swim...

Helpful and polite staff.
