RLJ Kendeja Resort and Villas: Lux getaway from hectic downtown Monrovia

We live in Monrovia, but opted for a weekend getaway here. The pricey rooms are grouped in villas on the property. We opted for a double room with a king bed. Room amenities are modern and comfortable -- what you'd expect at a high-end business hotel. The bathroom is rather narrow. Opt for a room away from the pool if you enjoy the quiet.

The restaurant is pricey, but the American and international cuisine is good enough. The Kendeja's Sunday brunch is popular with the expat community. However, don't get there too early. The food is generally put out late. Plus, the fare on offer is more "lunch" than "brunch."

Sadly, none of the villas are that close to the ocean. Chairs are set up below the plam trees on the beach, but swimming isn't allowed due to the heavy currents. It's better to relax with a drink by the saltwater pool.

The staff are friendly, but service isn't spectacular.

It's the only modern getaway in a country where most hotels reflect the fact that Liberia continues to recover from years of past conflict.

Atlantis Guest House: Loving Monrovia

Very safe, as it was close to Diplomatic offices. Rooms were simple but clean. Enjoyed the proximity to beaches and to the city itself. My friend was there on business, and there wasn't much to do in Liberia, tourism-wise, and so I spent a lot of time in the hotel. The food was pretty good, the staff were helpful and kept us entertained. Thankfully the internet was good. Kept in touch with family daily.

Great value!

Staff so important.

Mamba Point: Hotel

Really the only place to be secure in Monrovia. Very good hospitality.

Its relatively safe to exit the Hotel and walk uphill towards the US embassy grounds. Locals are very friendly.

Mamba Point: Hotel

Feels like the safest lodgings in Monrovia. Very good hospitality. I know things have changed in Monrovia since I was there in Nov. 07 (probably for the better). Its fine and secure, basic but very accommodating. Walking uphill towards the embassy was safe (we were accompanied by a local elderly ex- police escort) and the locals are curious and nice. Our tour of the city was great and sadly educational of all the past. Monrovia can only grow! One "supermarket" in town, very very expensive by US Dollar standards.

Good food and a pool. Great service.

Mamba point Hotel: Monrovia's Best

The Mamba Point is in the old Dutch Embassy building. The Lebanese owned and his Irish wife own and run the place. They do a good job. The hotel is simple but clean. The food is as reliable and anything in Monrovia gets. The pizza is good by any standards. The main dining room has a small bar but you are better off going to the nearby outdoor 7/11 beer garden. There is plenty of guarded parking inside the hotel wall. If worse comes to worse the US Embassy is within running distance.

An oasis in an uncertain and dangerous country.

Urban Renaissance: Clean, comfortable and quiet

With the increased presence of the UN Monrovia hotels have jacked up their prices. This was a good middle of the road place where I stayed for one week.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They even ironed my shirts for free. When my friend and I came in each evening, they would ask us what we wanted for dinner and then have a nice dinner waiting for us an hour later.
