Everyone was polite and very accommodating.
Service needs improving in pool bar. Understaffed. Very poor service. Food not great. Needs to be proper service when sunbathing by pool. Non-existent st present. You have to go to bar to order drinks.Not a five-star experience.
Room cleaning was late, about 4 pm every day. All other at the hotel was excellent.
+ The beach front access via the lift was fantastic, along with the beach itself was nice. Not the most beautiful I went to in this trip, but it was nice + The room was spacious, clean, bright, and nice view + There were plenty of sun beds around the pool + Great sea view from the pool and dinner areas as it was high on the hill + Great hotel for families + Little supermarket nearby
- Technically it's a 5 star hotel, but I wouldn't consider it to on that level compared to other 5 star hotels I've stayed at. It's more like 4 star. - Although the staff were friendly and polite, they seemed quite inexperienced - As commented by others, I agree that the drinks from the poolside bar are really overpriced for what they are, and definitely not made by an experienced bar professional. I would highly recommend going to the nearby supermarket and buying your own drinks and mixers to save the disappointment and money - This point is not so much about the hotel, but about the lack of options in the area for decent bars and restaurants. You would have to uber to Lagos about 30 mins away to get a wider variety of options. - This is more a hotel for families rather than younger people
Nice Location and friendly waiting staff. Dessert was always nice as well.
We paid for a superior double bed however it was 2 single beds pushed together. Pillows were extremely big and uncomfortable to sleep on. Had to upgrade from a superior double room as our room smelled and was close to a hotel which was playing loud music during the day even though we had requested a quiet room as we were there on our honeymoon. Even though we had already paid just under £4000 we had to pay to change rooms which was an additional £250. We were also told that a £50 a day charge gets added onto your bill to cover any food or drink you want to buy in the hotel. This was not explained to us well at all and we are still a bit confused as to why this money was taken. The food in the evenings was definitely not 5 star standard and was pretty bland. During lunch we had to wait ages to get served as they appeared to be understaffed. One day we had to wait half an hour for a towel as they didn't have any washed. This hotel is definitely not a 5 star experience, we saved a lot of money to go here and were very disappointed with the standard. When I compare it to my previous experience at this hotel 15 years ago i find it hard to believe its the same hotel as the standards have dropped and also now have to pay for the sunbeds on the beach. Very disappointed.
