“Home away from Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2013

My family and I spent a week at the Banana Island location in March. The staff there were great and very helpful (even helped us buy some supplies from the local stores). The suites were every comfortable complete with wifi internet and lovely bedrooms. We took full advantage of the swimming pools after long days spent in Lagos traffic. The place made me not want to come back to Canada when my vacation was finished.

Amara suites (Cooper road) turned out to be just the perfect place for our holiday in Lagos. I had not been to Lagos for some years and was not absolutely sure what to expect.
t turned out to be safe and the service was great.
The kids had their own games console and the unlimited wifi came in very handy.
I particularly liked the security...

By Lagos standards, the price was reasonable......

Our family of 6 enjoyed our stay at Amara Suites during our last trip to Lagos. Our first impression was how promptly and professionally all our enquiries were answered before arrival and this continued throughout our stay. Check in was really easy (which is very important after travelling long hours with kids).

The residence was secure, clean, comfortable and modern with functioning high speed internet, nicely set up and functional rooms with good lighting, comfy beddings, and furnishings in pristine condition. Non disruptive and steady power supply with seamless transition between city power and generator.

The location is great – easy access to our favorite spots on the Island and when headed to the mainland, we were able to avoid the high traffic areas and link the 3rd mainland bridge within minutes.

Furthermore, we thoroughly enjoyed the mouthwatering meals prepared by the steward. We are already looking forward to our next trip to Lagos and yet again enjoying the comfort and luxury of Amara Suites.

Fantastic location. Great service. Outstanding communication with ALL the staffs. Can't expect better. The apartment is spacious, well equipped with high speed internet, wifi, tv and many other home amenities. Has comfortable kitchen if you love cooking. Perfect holiday home for family with kids of all ages as well. My boy had a wonderful space for playing. Very clean. My second word for the place is "Home on the go". Thanks Beatrice. We did enjoy our stay and will come again, so I am pleased to leave a warm review. Definitely recommended!

I am one of those five star hotel junky, if its not the ritz.. its not good enough.You can imagine it if I am able to like it at Amara suites. The apartment Jasmin was at last minute decision after many nights at the wheatbaker hotel.The location was great, I was in the middle of everywhere I needed to be. Felt like home with wifi, cable and a steward at ur service.Kim and her staff were helpful and attentive. Would stay here again and would recommend it.

Please do not think twice about Amara Suites, it is really a great place to stay. It is clean, spacious, wifi (hig speed), a steward attached to your apartment, modern day kitchen utilities and decor. I was at the Anike court.

I am defintely going back there when I am on Holiday in Nigeria.

Never knew we had such great serviced apartments in Nigeria.

Cheers!

This place was perfect for the family trip. I had more than enough living space for us to enjoy one another and still have our own privacy. The location was secure and the staff was extremely helpful in ensuring that our needs were taken care of in a timely fashion. The price was the most reasonable that we could find. Everything else that we looked at online and had family personally scout out for us was overpriced and low quality. The quality, cleanliness and customer service exceeded our expectations. When we come back we are definetly staying here and I personally recommend this stay for anyone in Lagos looking for a great place to stay.
