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...

Downstairs rooms: terrible condition, damp, awful bathrooms Not allowed to eat in the squalid rooms even when my husband was sick they wouldn't allow me to take him some food but said he should go to hospital if he was sick in front of a restaurant full of other guests. Left our car idling for two minutes and was scolded...

I visit this hotel many times just for lunch. The sea food and avocado shrimp salad is the best choice for us. Let's try baracuda, sea bass or calamari.. just perfect for us.. the restaurant have a very good view to the sea. Toilet are too small and dark.

I spent four nights at the Phare and it exceeded my expectations in every respect. The apartment was clean, spacious and well-furnished, the pool was clean and long enough to swim laps, the restaurant served great meals and the staff were excellent - polite and attentive. Security was excellent but unobtrusive. The manager was friendly and when our AC stopped...

The position by the beach and the open restaurant overlooking the sand make a great spot....mind the crabs don't bite your toes! This could be a piece of paradise. A very laid back atmosphere is complemented by the less than classy, hardly friendly or alert service from the staff, so don't be in a hurry. The food was OK (fresh...
