It was a pleasant stay and the surroundings are lovely and quiet. The food was so-so, we chose to eat in the nearby Grand Popo. The room was very decent, though the AC broke down the next morning... You get used to these things in Benin :)

Stayed 2 nights in beach bungalow. Beach very close, not safe for swimming due to strong currents. Interesting to watch local beach fishermen come and go. Very slow breakfast service, good for evening dinner though. Be careful with biting insects - many present, no nets in rooms and air-con doesn't sort it either. Hotel not very helpful in this regard.

I was there several times. The rooms are very good, especially since the recent makeover. The VIP rooms are great. The restaurant is the best around. The fish is excellent. On special occasions there's a party on the beach. I highly recommend the place.

I am slightly at a loss as to how to correctly rate this resort...By Western standards it has to be poor, by West African standards perhaps average might be fairer, however in general even in Benin I am sure that standards could be improved.

This is the first time I have ever rated a property as terrible but our stay was most unfortunate.First of all we were offered a very small, dark and unpleasant room.We refused to accept it and were then given a much nicer room. After going out for a river boat trip we returned to the hotel and were unable to... More

Lovely bright rooms. The menu is quite good but unfortunately the portions are so very small that I had to go out and eat again. My recommendation is stay at Awale and eat at the Auberge de Grand Popo.

Beautiful grounds and facilities. The pool was great and clean. It was lovely to hear the sound of the waves. Also the pool man was incredibly helpful and also helps find you coconuts to drink and eat for 300CFAs - best coconut i've had in a while.

After a fortnight exploring Togo & Benin in much worse hotels the Awale Plage was a much welcomed relief. Rooms equipped closer to European Standards with good AC and well presented. Comfortable and with a nice swimming pool. The restaurant was great with really good food but on the second night we had to wait 90 minutes and get a... More
