2 of us got food poisoning, vomiting & diarrhoea all night, then we're refused a refund of the meals. Very bad service. Extremely disappointed as the place has good potential & is in a beautiful setting.

This resort could probably be the best resort in West Africa if certain factors are considered . We went as a group of 18ppl and got a discounted rate which still was expensive.The rooms were sparsely furnished basic furniture small size 16 tv. Kitchen is closed between meals which makes it difficult for one who is hungry after meal times...

The place was so quiet, clean and beautiful that i had one of the best rest i had every had. The games also helped and the fact that you can run on the clean beaches. Not understanding french is not an issue as there are English speaking waiters

Like most of our West African trip this did not disappoint with low, unfriendly service. Beyond unhelpful reception staff. But the rooms were clean and the food edible, though for a very high price. Wait staff were somewhat better trained.

I live in London and i am married to a beninese princess (truly). we had been here before and this time we came with our cotonou's lawyer in tow + his family. There is no doubt that CDP offers same sort of sanity after the insanity of this extremely poor country, where any sort of civil behaviour or infrastructure simply...

Looks can be deceiving. I came to this location expecting the whole works. A beach resort can only provide so much but one would expect the resort to pride itself in the experience it provides to its customers, through the service and an array of activities. La Casa offers no such thing. Apart from the air-conditioned room and beach, this...

The Atlantic Ocean in its splendour, far away in the remote outskirts of Ouidah in the Republic of Benin.....La Casa del Papa is heaven on Earth. Lovely cottages....excellent ambience....beautiful scenery....ideal for those who wish to be lost in the labyrinth of Mother Nature. A must visit for all.

Very nice place to visit away from cotonou. Beautiful scenery and very relaxing atmosphere. It is worth while to take a drive out from cotonou to get here and appreciate what they can offer. The crayfish is a must.
