I didn't stay on the hotel, but I ate on the restaurant. Very nice location on the beach. My friend said that the fish was great, but I'm a vegetarian, and there wasn't any options for me on the menu. I ended up getting pasta with a tomato sauce, witch was very complicated to get

We stay here often to perform work in Kribi. The place is older and occasionally has some issues with the electricity or Internet, but never fir very long. The owner is very helpful and he recently built 6 new rooms with private decks, right on the beach. Check it out the next time you visit Kribi, or just drop in...

This hotel is just off the beach not too far from the beautiful Lobe falls. The hotel's private beach is not huge but leaves plenty of space to swim or wander, meanwhile the pool looks great. The rooms on the first floor are quite good and comfy. They are not luxurious but this is not a luxury hotel. The air...

the hotel has a nice terrace. We just went there for a drink when we came from the Batange memorial and lighthouse. The staff is friendly and it is quit. The toilettes were dirty. And even if you are in Africa, in a hotel I expect clean toilets.

Always a great little place for an over night stay where you can relax and get away from pressures of work...sea , sand and fresh ocean breezes. Various size rooms for family or couples which are neat clean and fit for purpose. Don't expect boutique luxury.

Good pace, very close to the beach with good restaurant. A bit expensive for backpackers, thats why a changed after two days. It takes you 5 minutes to the city center by motorbike taxi. Stuff speaks mostly french, some a bit of english.

I'm offering this review for comparison with several other reviews I've done for Kribi. For detail see reviews of people who have stayed there, however these are very mixed in opinion. I say this is different because it seems much larger than some, and arranged round a large courtyard with security on the gate. Only the swimming pool and restaurant...

With the swimming pool and the beach in the same location this is a great option for a stop in Kribi. The unspoilt beach allows for morning or evening walks all the way to the Lobe Falls if you are prepared to scramble over rocks from time to time (but it could take between 1 & 2 hours depending on...
