La Cote Du Repos
Ranked #40 of 119 Abidjan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Client service exceeding expectations: phone charger loaned, restaurant bills sent later, taxi bookings, etc.

Restaurant has delicious prawns (unfortunately no langouste at the time of visit) and good prices (approx 20$)

Spa services on site affordable and good quality products (30 min massage approx. 20$)

Careful! The hotel is located between the airport and Grand-Bassam, not in Abidjan. Great location for the beach and weekend gateway.
- Taxi to Grand Bassam 5,000 CFA one way.
- Taxi to Abidjan 10,000 CFA one way.
- Airport pick up & drop off included (20 min away)

Beach is cleaned (raked) daily. Restaurant giving on the beach.

The pool's waters were blurry and the site was taken over by a dozen locals (day visitors) on Saturday: the site was then too crowded.

Wifi very slow, impossible to stream videos and down intermittently.

Room Tip: Avoid room 1: Friend stay there and complained of lack of wifi signal and loud noise (heavy trucks...

Great place to stay if going to Abidjan. The owner is very helpful and his staff is excellent. Food is great, I arrived late and had to leave early and the hotel was very accommodating. Can be at the airport in 15 minutes. Highly recommended.

I was staying in Abidjan for a fortnight with my sister and wanted to get away from the city's busy life and found La Cote du Repos.
This was a lovely place to stay. The staff/owners are very friendly and relax. The location is great and the wind blows the mosquitoes away.
The rooms are so simple and comfortable and the price very convenient.
The hamam is just perfect to complete a long day and relax.
I highly recommend it.

I had only about 36 hours in Abidjan, but wanted to see more than I felt the city center would permit, so I selected this property, which is about 15 minutes from the airport, towards Grand Bassam. As it developed, this was an excellent choice; Volker, his wife, and the staff couldn't have been nicer, which really made my stay.

I selected the small single room, which while basic, was just what I needed for sleeping, showering, etc, and had a powerful a/c unit (very helpful given the region's heat and humidity!).

But the stay is far nicer if you spend time out at the tables overlooking the beach - I passed many pleasant hours there, eating, drinking good French wine, or just chatting with Volker or other guests. Nice sunset views.

Additionally, Volker was a tremendous help in assisting me make the most of my brief stay, including arranging for me to hire at a very reasonable rate a guide/translator (my French is very poor) so that I could go into Abidjan via a local boat, rather than taxi, as well as kindly collecting me from Grand Bassam, which I'd foolishly imagined to be walking distance (it is - if you don't mind walking for about 2.5 - 3 hours)


Overall the kindness of the owners and staff and my stay here turned what could have been a ho-hum visit to Abidjan, into something far nicer.
