WATCH YOUR STEP!
This riverside hotel, also known as the ex-Protea, is conveniently close to the W.H.O. regional HQ, but a bit far out of town. Built on uneven ground, it has many step-ups and step-downs; I counted three guests trip and almost fall as they crossed the restaurant floor one morning.
The rooms are compact, but with all the mod cons. Complaints about connectivity were quickly sorted out. A complaint about the hard boiled eggs (running like Usayn Bolt) brought an apologetic waiter, then an apologetic chef. I didn’t wait for them to come with the genuine article. There is no toaster in the breakfast room.
There are two small unheated swimming pools, one by the riverside. I cannot comment on the (largely continental) menu; I tried the saka-saka, a local dish from cassava leaves, which was delicious.
At $120 for bed & breakfast, a very pleasant stay. Its geographical isolation makes the Beach Hotel less interesting for those who prefer a hotel in the center of town.
