This hotel, physically, has seen better days and looks nowhere near as good as it does on its website. The breakfast area has a bird infestation problem and they freely feed on the buffet contents despite the little efforts of the staff. Though relatively clean the Salako "suites" are quite small and poor value for all their expensiveness. The hotel mainly trades on cheap budget package holidays from France, that includes fairly naff in-house "entertainment". The wi-fi network is patchy and slow. The receptionist couldn't produce any map of the locality with an attitude more to discourage people from wandering off from using the hotels "services" which were non-existant after 11pm. The nearby lagoon (read: open sewer) smelled if the wind blew the wrong way. Do you still really want to go here? I don't think so!
