The pool facilities were good overall however the staff were were and not courteous. They lazed around as if you owed them something. A solid hotel overall,...

What a fantastic stay! The best hotel I've stayed at in Lagos, or anywhere in Nigeria for that matter. I cannot fault this hotel on anything - very friendly, competent staff, spacious rooms with good amenities, excellent food (very interesting, tasty "marinated" fresh fruits at breakfast). The only thing during my stay was that the pool was closed for maintenance....
