We didn't order any other food apart from breakfast as we ate out a lot but they have a very generous breakfast spread with lots and lots of variety. Tastes good too. They've got a wide variety of...

When in Lagos, I drop by to the Casino. Lovely place with very attentive staff and you wont feel left out. This is the best casino in Nigeria by far. Their finger food is great too and unlike other casinos they do not cringe if you ask for a comp drink.

The FederalPalace hotel is well situated. It has a casino, yet is still a quiet place to stay. Great breakfasts, and a huge pool with water slides. The bar is friendly and well stocked and reasonably priced. The rooms are spacious and well fitted out with all necessary supplies and amenities.

Dear MarkHalpern Thank you for your review of the Sun Federal Palace Hotel & Casino.

The rooms are comfortable but the bathrooms look a bit old. For a 5 star would have at least expected separate showers instead of the in the bath. The breakfast buffet was rather limited in terms of offerings and when ordering the club sandwich from room service the portion was very small for the price compared to what I have...
