An unique experience on Bioko Isle. The sunrise over Horacio Islands is breathtaking. Excellent management and trained staff, which makes your stay in SOFITEL Malabo Sipopo Le Golf unforgettable. Must mention here the gorgeous golf course, his management and perfect maintenance. Thanks Sylvain, Bernard, Nicolas, Mario, Ana and all the rest of staff members.

The Hotel is in an excellent location, with half the rooms overlooking the sea, those at the front look out on the golf course. Great pool, spa, and fitness centre. The rooms are large and very well apppointed. But for me, the best think about this hotel is the staff and management. Friendly, efficient, relaxed and always helpful. It is always a pleasure to stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Of course the sea rooms are the most preferred. But the other rooms look out over a beautiful golf...

Very nice hotel, the best i have never seen in Equatorial Guinea.
Superb rooms, amazing view from the balcony (our room was facing the sea).
Not to mention the legendary sofitel bed, which invite you in a world of "relaxation".
The staff was very friendly, impressive!
Possiblity to do fishing or Jet ski in blue waters and many other activities (spa, golf...)
Very very good and relaxing week-end!
In short, we will definitly come back.

Sofitel Malabo Le Golf is by far the best hotel in Equatorial Guinea! I live in Equatorial Guinea since 2007, and spent the week end in this Hotel. What a great moment of calm and relaxation! Warm welcome at the reception, with a refreshing chocolate drink (very nice after air travel), decoration design and classy, rooms IM-PEC-CA-BLES (not mentionning the bed which repairs your body after a good night of sleep ... Patent "MY BED" ... Back pain ? Did you say back pain ? Don't know what you're talking about !), impressive and delicious sunday buffet, and of course, the sea (you can fish!), the pool, the golf course and the SPA... All the highest Sofitel standards are there. And to add some little effect, we have seen the "Nzalang", which is the national feminine football team, representing Equatorial Guinea in the feminine African Cup.
In short, this Hotel is meant for those who are looking for a special moment in a special place!

Deceided on a weekend break from Malabo City. Checked into Sofitel Malabo Sipopo Le Golf from Saturday to Sunday. Service at the hotel was great and the check in smooth. Got a beautiful room with a sea view and balcony. Enjoyed the buffet in the restaurant in the evening.
Stuggelig to get out of the extremely comfortable beds the next day, we spent time by the pool, had a lovely Sunday lunch at the restaurant, then a walk around the island, and more time by the pool, before it was time to head back to reality again. Late check out on Sundays was a nice surprise. Sofitel Malabo Sipopo Le Golf is a peaceful place and a bit magic in the evenings with all the lights. Unfortunately didn't have time to test out the golf course which looks great, or the spa.

Sofitel Malabo Sipopo Le Golf is the perfect place to organise your business meetings and enjoy some peace and quite in your free time. The service is outstanding and far better than any other hotel in Malabo. The surroundings of the hotel are beautiful and you can enjoy a swim in the pool, fishing or the lovely spa. The rooms are quite big and always clean. If you have the opportunity do not miss out on the big gold course either.

This hotel may be a little faraway from the city but it doesn't take longer to go to the airport than if you were in the city.You will be surprise by the quality of the service and how beautiful are all facilities. Large , luminous rooms; beautiful view on the sea from your large terrasse . The pool is large and , very important for travellers, cleaned every morning and clear as if you were in the Caraïbes. Of course the golfers will enjoy the golf course in the tropical forest.
The staff is efficient and the management will do the best to help you .
So really worth a stay

Room Tip: As the building has a sinusoid chape some rooms are a little more luminous with 4 windows instead of...
