My last month-long visit in March 2020 before COVID shut down the world to this my home for the past 12+ years was a complete and utter disappointment. The ownership and hence management change has destroyed a truly sacred property. The treatment of the Liberia staff is beyond awful. My heart is broken.

Working with our NGO (hydro-engineering projects) has been so much easier, since I decided to reside at RLJ Kendeja for a period of two weeks. The new management has successfully established infrastructural improvements. My wonderful home base served me well as a unique place to work and enjoy my free time in paradise conditions. The location of my very much preferred accommodation is just perfect - just about 50 min from the airport - close to all the spots I am engaged with and also perfect to receive Representatives and partners for meetings in a special tropical atmosphere with a reliable internet and everything needed for successful outcomes. Especially in this troubled times (pandemic) I appreciate the staff cleanliness and their attitude to fully adhere to the directives given by Ministry of Health to curb the spread of Covid. Kudos to all employees and the Management Roberta, Korto, Edward and many more.

I travel 4 to 5 times per year to Monrovia and always stay the first night after arrival at RLJ Kendeja. Over time, service quality was not satisfactory, but since there is a new management some of the services has improved and am happy to share this. My daily highlight this time around was a new waitress on probation. MUSU her name and she has a contagious friendly smile. Her quick response and service delivery is positive and should be recognised. More employees like Musu and more guests will enjoy their stay at one of the most beautiful facilities on the West African Coast.

I spent 6 nights. Breakfast was good and had a decent variety of hot and cold foods. The chef was on hand to make omelettes and pancakes according to personal personal preferences, and the results were never poor. The lunch and dinner food did not disappoint although I only chose between spaghetti bolognaise and fish&chips. I enjoyed being able to walk to their private beach to just take in the view and enjoy the breeze.
