I stayed in this hotel for 3 different nights whilst travelling to and around different parts of Cameroon.
Its quite a nice place to stay. It is convenient for the airport, though it is located in a really mixed part of town that you probably wouldn't really want to wander around at night (though perfectly safe within the hotel grounds). The hotel is at the end of an incredibly bumpy track which looks improbable.
There is plenty of hot water and the air conditioning works well. All rooms have a TV but there is no fixed terminal for the internet-though there is WIFI if you have brought your own computer (only works in the lobby).
The reception staff were smiley and as helpful as you could expect with the language barrier.
The bar and restaurant are located on decking overlooking the river. The food was really good, but its always worth asking whats fresh. The sea food should be fresh as the fish market is fairly close by.
There is a swimming pool but I didn't use it so can't comment.
Photography is sensitive in Doula and I managed to incur the wrath of several boatmen-despite the fact that they were several hundred metres away in the middle of the river channel and would be lost within the detail of any photograph. The nearby fishmarket would similarlymake for many fabulous photographs -if you were able to do so, but what what I experienced I wouldn't recommend this.
Overall a good place to stay but you need to prearrange a pick up from the airport if coming in at night.
