Prior to my first (and thus far only) trip to Luanda, I had heard all kinds of horror stories from colleagues who had worked there- hotels that routinely had no hot water, or no water at all, for hours on end, unfriendly staff, decaying facilities and rooms, etc. And all of this at the kind of prices that routinely make Luanda one of the world's most expensive cities. So imagine my friends' and my pleasant surprise to check into a beautiful, modern hotel where everything worked, the staff were at least civil, and the quality of everything was very high! Make no mistake, you get what you pay for here, and it is by no means a bargain. However, in the context of other offerings in Luanda, this is a gem. The pool area is beautiful and has a distinctly Miami-ish feel to it, the food is all very good (but pricey- a lunch of grilled octopus with roast potatoes was $45!), the rooms are immaculate and the entire hotel is five-star. If you're in Luanda, this is the place to stay! No ratings for spa or breakfast as I didn't experience either, and we were guests so also no comment on value, although from what I saw of their prices vs prices around Luanda, it's probably reasonable- just bear in mind that EVERYTHING in Luanda is VERY overpriced.
