MERCURE LOME SARAKAWA 3M
The Best Place to Stay
I have stayed in this hotel for a week in 2005 Sep on my way to accra from cotonou. I must say that this is the best hotel in town, although very expensive. The staff is very helpful, but the ambeince is of comfort. It is a really nice leisure destination, one can spent a couple of weeks watching the sea or by the poolside. The hotel boasts of a olympic size pool. There is also boating, fishing and horse riding arranged on request. Apart from the regular rooms, they also have service apartments.
The entry and reception area is big with a Bar on one side and the reception on the other side. Most days you will find exhibitions at the reception, mostly to do with the country's fine arts. Though I should warn that I found the souveniers much overpriced than the regular market.
The rooms also average sized, are very clean and comfortable.
There are two restaurants Dawa and Sika-Sika, Sika-Sika is by the poolside and you can enjoy the food with a view of the large pool. The mornining breakfast is elaborate and not to be missed.
There is a disco which is nice and plays good music, but it is packed during the weekends. Difficult to get a place to sit if you are a late entrant and want to just enjoy a drink.
Overall one of the best facilities in West Africa
Unique Quality: Pool View rooms are really good, also the mornining breakfast is not to be missed. Can let your hair down in the disc if you are there during a weekend, music is mostly english, french, arabic and hindi.
