“Nice beach, but animal cruelty should be passe!”
Reviewed December 5, 2010

A couple of times per year collegues of mine, or myself vist Monrovia. Because all the hotels in de city center were booked we checked out Thinkers Beach Hotel. The rooms looked ok, though there is no warm. We needed four rooms, but just before booking we walked to the beach and past two monkeys on the property. They had chains around there necks and the heavy chains had worn out the hair in their necks, they hardly could move at all. We asked a security guy (who wanted to charge a dollar per person for looking after the car) and a waiter who the monkeys were there. They said that the guests like that. We told them that only sick people like wachting small monkeys with heavy chains around their neck. The smallest monkey lives allready over two years like this. We know that Liberia came a long way, but this is unnecessary. It is animal cruelty. We have decited to boycot the restaurants en hotels that keep monkeys like that (also saw it at other places). I hope other visitors do the same.

The staff was helpful, rooms were clean, and the food was very good. I would definitely stay here when I travel to Liberia again (probably in 2011). They were almost finished with the new addition when we were there and it looked great! We had stayed in Monrovia on previous trips, and I loved staying on the beach. The owners lived in the Boston area for several years and they were excellent hosts.

The owner was building an annex building at the time, it is probably finished now, but this place has runs on an old generator, has a nice beach, less than food, no internet access, rooms are small and dark with insufficient Aircon, no evident security. We have done meetings here several times and invariably the generator breaks down and we are all standing around trying to keep cool while the repair goes on.
Good Luck!
