Food overpriced, I have to say this as I was very upset, they allow PROSTITUTES on premises as one approached my husband, they hang out in LOBBY and at the Bar outside in evening, I went to restroom and she apparently approached my husband he laughed at her and told me, and I went to her a had words with her and she went inside,. I paid for 10 days plus family visiting another 3 days, and I tipped over whelming, and was very dissapointed in the PROSTITUTES, DOESN'T LOOK GOOD NEVER HAD THIS EXPERIENCE IN A HOTEL VACATION EVERY NOT GOOD FOR THE PEOPLE THAT SYAY ,! also the Security is great with one exception, a guard approached us by the pool in the evening and asked us for MONEY he said he was hungry, I gave him $500 cafers BUT was taken back!

Cons: The welcoming was terrible and they had no room available for me although they had confirmed everything was ok in the morning they wante to send me to another poor hotel. The next day they said they would pick me up at 8h30 but they ended up comimg at 10h30. Never been treated like that sonce 6 years in west africa
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Hospitality and friendliness of the staff and prompt response to orders.

There is no car wash(lavage)in your facility which is very important.
