Negative Reviews

Not the best location

Although many guests enjoy being close to the coast, the precise location of this hotel can make it hard for guests without their own means of transport to get around. Liberia International Airport is about an hour away from this hotel which can be quite the distance to travel after a long flight.

Unwelcoming rocky beach

This hotel features a beach where guests can enjoy the sun's heat. However, many guests have complained that this particular beach is quite small and can get crowded during peak times of the day. Not only is its size an issue, but some guests have given warning that it can be dangerous as there are rocks all along this beach.

Expensive on-site food

Even though there are a few dining options to choose from at this hotel, guests have complained that these on-site restaurants are all too expensive, especially when traveling in a large group of friends or family.
