Residence Hoteliere du Phare
Ranked #8 of 17 Hotels in Libreville
Reviewed July 30, 2012

This small hotel is a very welcoming and relaxing place to stay in a quiet and safe part of Libreville. I was lucky enough to have a room that fronted the beach and was able to hear the sound of waves all through the night. I wasn't quite brave enough to swim there - but I have been told that there are other beaches across the estuary that are clean and beautiful.

The bar and restaurant is quite good and it is indeed very relaxing to take a Régab beer on the terrace as the sun goes down - just don't forget the mosquito repellent ;)

This will be where I stay from now on whenever I visit Libreville.

The hotel is just on the beach, very good standing, air con in room, tv, safe...the only bad thing was the curtain in the shower which is not very handy.
The restaurant is very good without aircon, open air on the beach, perfect for romantic dinner in the vening or business lunch.

Room Tip: there are few little room just on the beach which are realy relaxing as you can see the wave from yo...

Stayed at Residence Hoteliere du Phare for few nights. Superbly located on the beach and delicious food. The only setback was wifi did not work properly. Best place for relaxing, eating and enjoying. Just liked it.

Room Tip: Something facing the beach though I did not get that.

This hotel is really nice and the service is good. When I stayed in this hotel I felt relaxed and at ease.
In the evening the restaurant is serving lovely meals for dinner.
The only disappointment was the breakfast. Because the price per room is very high (between 240 Euro - 330 Euro per night) and the one included breakfast per room consists just of some cold croissants and cold coffee. When I asked for an egg, I was told that I had to pay extra! That was a bit of a bummer...

Room Tip: The rooms facing the sea are the best.

Great place to stay and eat. Rooms very clean and comfortable, you go to sleep to the sound of the waves. Food is fantastic too. Note that they do not take credit cards, you'll need to pay in cash (Euros or CAFs).

Room Tip: Anything overlooking the sea

Spent 4 nights hosted by Fred, Vero, Damien and their team. Fantastic service, menu and food excellent.

Rooms comfortable, all with views across the Gabon Estuary to the invisible lighthouse. ; ) You're on the beach, and can have wonderful walks.in either direction - towards the city or the cape

Sedems to be te place to be seen in Libreville - who's who for business lunches, functions and light jazz live music. Fred will even give you a song.

Viva la du Phare

Room Tip: Try the suite or 15/16

had lunch in the restaurant and went back there two more times before I left town. Great french food. Make sure you make a reservation. Service, just like service in most of libreville, was quite slow. Try the grilled lobsters, or entrecote limosine. you cant go wrong! You might never get up and go as the ocean breeze is just too soothing!

Room Tip: Only used the restaurant
