Another excellent stay
Stayed here in 2019 and had an excellent stay. It has not changed. We had a lovely peaceful stay, away from all crowds. Due to Covid the pool bar/snack bar was not open but we managed without it. Very few guests at the villas which is a shame for the tourism industry. Everything was Covid compliant. We will return. You will need a car to travel to the beach and up into the mountains. Plenty of facilities for small children but plenty of space to get away from it all. Kitchen equipped to very high standards - just check the drawer under the hob for your cutlery! It took us a while to find it.

Not a Hotel
Cut our stay short by a day (travelled with 2 toddlers). Dark, smelt of sewage from poor drainage) and in the middle of no where. We arrived late at night and couldn’t buy food/breakfast next morning. Lacked basic essentials in kitchen. Would suit campers/ equipped travellers/caravaners. Customer service was excellent and did their best to resolve the matter but we decided to head to a hotel in Lagos instead. This apt. is not within a hotel complex, that’s what we wanted and made the mistake of booking this residence instead.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Fabulous location, very peaceful most of the time. The area around the swimming pool was not managed though, lots of empty plastic bottles, discarded pool toys and inflatables. We tidied the area up twice ourselves. No supervision of young men dive bombing and playing football, smoking shisha etc. Shower head bracket in bedroom 2 of villa 53 not fixed despite numerous requests. We will come back though, maybe a bit later in the season next year.
