This is a popular place for people to visit, especially in the weekend. The views from the place as beautiful and you can easily spend the whole day lounging around the restaurant area or going for a swim. The rooms themselves, including the bathrooms are large and spacious and include a sofa area. There is hot water in the rooms... More

Nice venue and locality. Rooms very nice. Service very slow. Very limited menu ,no lobster, crab or King shrimps. Fish,shrimps very nice, pasta average.Smoothies nice but not always available! Unfortunately poor attitude from management who appears to believe they always correct created an uncomfortable atmosphere. Cannot recommend.

This review is only for the restaurant as I have never stayed here. The food here is the best I had in Sierra Leone. The grilled lobsters are excellent, so are the crabs and fish. Not too many options and the food takes a long time to arrive. However, everything is fresh and done to order. The location is just... More

The place is indeed beautifully endowed by the nature's bounty - sand, sea, sun and sky! This is more than enough for me as it served my intention when I went there. I wanted to be with the nature, I wanted to rest from the noisy confusion of lifer and work, I wanted to find peace and tranquility. Florence Resort... More

In Sierra Leone you don't have much choices, when it comes to hotels, although recently a lot of new hotels have sprung up, and they all compete with the newest and nicest interior designs and styles. Some of these are very successful and refreshing compared to the up until basic survivor style. Yet, having been to Sierra Leone often over... More

Despite the very well grillled lobster, the service was poor, take an hour and thirty to come, the beers not cold, coffee take another hour, no desserts... Think twice if you want to pass some hours at the beach or waiting for the food...

Stayed as part of an exclusive tour organised by the excellent London based Rainbow Tours and their partners Visit Sierra Leone. Room 5 was good with stunning views though first room offered was poor. Beach at low tide to left of hotel was rubbish strewn. Service was variable and slow. We did not walk to main beach as at high... More

Florence's/Franco's is the perfect place to relax with a beer in the evening and eat some of the best fish you'll ever have in your life. The room's are large and comfortable and the place is run extremely well by the family and a number of helpful staff. It is about twenty minutes outside Freetown on a rough unfinished road... More

Florence's makes a great city-break weekend if you're looking for some R&R. We visited Florence's restaurant for lunch on two separate occasions during our two week trip to Freetown. The catch of the day was flavorful. And the grilled lobster was a standout. Great food served right on the beach made Florence's the best meal of our trip. On one... More

After having a string of bad luck at River # 2 Beach Resort, I called Franco's/Florence's late in the evening to beg them to come get us... and super-friendly Fabrizio was kind enough to oblige. The room was well priced, very spacious and had A/C, hot water and a fridge. The grounds were pretty and there was a big lot... More
