The staff is still very kind and tyhe rooms are clean, still daily change of bed linnen and towels. Unfortunately the hotel is fully collonised by the dutch touroperator Correndon.Beach is within walking distance, but to go for the "STRIP" and restaurants you need a taxi (yellow shared ones Dalasi 8, green private dal 50). or walk the 4km along...

We were staying in the 5 star hotel across the road, but loved coming here for the food! Fair prices, varied menu, friendly and actual helpful staff. Dishes could be adjusted to be vegetarian like it was the smallest trouble in the world. Only downside is that the terrace is very near to the road. Also, one time this kid...

Depending on the chef of the day will depend if your lunch is good or bad. On most occasions they make the best ever fish and chips or fish burgers. However, our last visit resulted...

I was here for business - teaching stay. When I compared accommodations, I realised how expensive the fares are for what you get (1500 Dalasis/night , over 30€). There are many low- to medium-income countries whose hospitality costs goes along local market prices, assuming that travellers may spend much more than locals (hostels / basic hotels in Latin-America or Southeast...

“First have a look at your room before you accept. If available it's no problem to change a prebooked room. Some have missing items in the bathroom (mirror, toilet seat, showerhose).”
