First impressions were good. A friendly welcome. Single-storey buildings in a garden, with a small pool. Little traffic noise.
We had a 1-bedroom apartment (bungalow, really) - plenty of room for 2, and would have slept 2 children as well at a pinch.
About 20 minutes' walk from the bus station and the nearest beach. 5-10 minutes' walk from the Intermarche supermarket (which has reliable cash machines, not otherwise easy to find in Lagos).
Wifi works well in the communal lounge, not elsewhere.
So far so good. So why only 3 stars, when other reviewers have given it 4 or 5?
Simply that it looks to have been build in the 1970s, and had little attention since. It looks tired and dated. Our kitchenette was equipped with the absolute basics in terms of plates and cutlery, but no consumables. We even had to buy washing-up liquid and sponges. The (tiny) electric kettle had no auto-off nor switch, so it would boil away merrily till you unplugged it.
