My family in Nigeria and the US had a 4-day retreat at obudu Mountain Resort during the Christmas period of 2011. I traveled from the United States to the resort. Prior to leaving the states, I did a lot of research and read reviews about the resort. Most reviews were positive, but I was still a bit apprehensive. Needless to say, after perusing hundreds of pictures of the resort on line and talking with the staff to make reservations, we set out a few days before Christmas. Our party of 17 arrived at Obudu on December 23rd after travelling more that 13 hours from northern Nigeria. We were met at the reception with tropical juice. Good start! The real test is about to come. We were escorted to our Mountain Villa by one of the staff at which point the children where all excited and bounded into the Villa. my first check was of the 3 bathrooms in the Villa - another test passed. They were clean and modern. The bedrooms were also clean and appeared as in the countelss pictures I looked at. All activities that we participated in where not disappointing. We had to take a few cold showers, but overall, I was impressed and that's saying alot. my family has vowed to meet up every few years at obudu for a reunion. We hope the management continue to keep the resort maintained and updated so they can keep loyal visitors and also attract new ones.
