Spend, early Nov 08, 5 nights in the Mövenpick Royal Palm hotel.
This is an abolutely decent hotel.
You get more or less a good Western standard hotel in Africa - which isn't bad at all !
Room was spacious and clean with everything working perfectly well. Bathroom was spacious and clean with everything working perfectly well.
Reception staff was a bit slow but all went fine on check in (with intennet prepaid booking) and check out.
Bell boy was great and very helpfull.
Cleaning staff was very friendly and attentive.
Restaurants : breakfast buffet is absolutely adequate with a wide variety of foodstuffs.
The Italian restaurant on site is very decent, although a bit pricy. The hotel bar is great as is the bar staff.
Wednesday evening it's lobster eve - fantastic choice and very good food !
Taxi's on the premises are expensive. Just across the street (behind Barclays bank) there's a "public" taxi stand with really very democratic prices and with reliable taxi's.
Swimming pool area is, although small, very pretty. Not crowded at all - with decent lunch and dinner possibilities in the swimming pool area.
We had a pleasant stay at the Mövenpick Royal Palm!
When going back to DAR, we'll stay at the Mövenpick again !
