This was a considered trip that ticked all our boxes. Different people needing different things, spa, beach, food and beautiful weather. Stunning views, superb service, excellent facilities and a thoroughly helpful manager. Would definitely not hesitate to return again :)

This resort is a true hidden gem! Located right on the beach, we had an ocean view from our room. The resort is managed extremely well, staff is great and the food is consistently good with a ton of options. A very peaceful and relaxing place to be and 100% where I will be staying next time I am in...

We were visiting Liberia with my husband and wanted a night away, so decided to stay here. Booked on hotels.com and got a great rate.

I visited this property several days in a row one week in early December. I did not stay on the premises, but I dined, breakfasted and lunched at the restaurant a number of times. The premises are well kept, and the location near the ocean is idyllic. The staff is friendly, attentive and courteous. Every single meal at the restaurant...

Living near to this hotel and I often briefly pop in to use the facilities for a quiet place to escape, good food, service with a smile and beautiful beach. However, a friend treated me to a pamper day and it was heaven! I was warmly greeted by a smiling Oretha and from the start she made me feel relaxed...

Stayed here a few times for a total of around 10-14 nights. The rooms are really nice and you get a lot of privacy. The gym is also nice. There is a swimming pool but it is often very dirty. Great beach! I would classify the food as decent. Okay breakfast and lunch/dinner options but not a lot of variety...

Although we did enjoy our stay at this resort, it was tired and the room we were in only had one cup and one small bottle of water. The kettle couldn't be plugged in as there was no adapter. The bed was comfortable, however the bottom sheet did not fit the mattress. For the price we paid to stay we...

If you are staying here, make sure to go to the spa and have a nice pedi, mani or facial - ask for Oretha, she's really good and sweet!! My feet are happy again 😊 Nice rooms and friendly staff. We enjoyed a dinner on the terrace which was spicy but good.

I have not stayed at the RLJ. It is located quite a distance from the city center. Location is idyllic and very relaxing setting. However the service at the restaurant and quality of food for what you pay is very poor. The selection of house wines as well leaves a lot to be desired.

When my jet broke down in Africa, I wasn't sure what to expect about the accommodations my company could find last minute. Many passengers went right into Monrovia, the myself and rest of the crew were sent here! I loved it! Great food Great staff Great beds Very clean I would suggest for a vacation spot!
