Because of different businesses I travel a lot to ivory coast and was there several times. For me there are some important reasons very important, that means safety, quality and sanitariness. The Etoile du Sud is in the heart of Grand Bassam, on the border to the sea, in the night you hear the force of the nature. There is... More

Nice affordable hotel. Close to Abidjan and easy by taxi for 25 000cfa return trip. Splendid view. Excellent private pool. 1st comers get breakfast. If you're late you end up with bread only. Love the place and will go again.

Had a walk on the beach in Grand Bassam and just on first impression decided this is the place to stay if you want a honeymoon quality experience. At Night you can go for a romantic walk on the clean sandy beach, there is a spotlight to keep it safe and beautiful, something not so common in West Africa. I... More

Very good location, on a sandy beach in Grand Bassam. That's all. Very old facilities, some not working , poor service and high prices. The breakfast is covered with flies. Poor choice and fruits are not fresh. Small TVs in rooms. Beds are good and large. The wifi is not available in a the room and very slow where available.

We had huge problems when we arrived at the hotel, they could not find our reservation and in addition they claimed that they did not know or have any contract with Expedia whatsoever. It was difficult to communicate with them because we could not speak French and they could not speak English. It took about 3 hours before they found... More

Spent 3 days here and could not wait to leave. As you walk in the rooms smell like mildew so do the pillow and bedsheets. I had mine changed twice. The air cons are permanently on and the remote controls are removed from the room. I had to beg and plead with the reception staff to obtain one. Food is... More

Was here for a weekend check in was smooth and effortless the room looked clean. The view of the beach was nice however you can hardly enjoy it. You come out and the hustlers are all in your space and just being a nuisance. The pool is nice but the food here is nothing to write home about and it... More

The location is perfect. Right on the beach, where you can watch an interesting flow of locals passing by all day long. If you prefer to... More
