Quiet and comfortable hotel
This hotel is a number of small cottages located around a main building, small pool and garden. A complimentary breakfast of rice and beans, scrambled eggs, toast and fruit was provided. Our room was spotless and scrubbed clean. Beds were comfortable. A small waterfall was broken. A few more umbrellas could have been provided for shade around the pool. Also, there were no chairs or tables in the garden area. You could walk to the beach along a very busy road. It would not be easy. We were happy with our stay. It was clean, quiet, safe and comfortable.
Hotel is made up of small cottages, each with two units.
Pool and kiddie pool. Fountain at one end was broken.

Family run hotel with very friendly and warm staff. The rooms look out into a beautiful courtyard with tropical plants and birds. There is a convinient supermarket next door. It is a little far from flamingo Beach and walking is not the safest but they can call a cab for you , if needed, The perfect place to stay if you would rather not be in the touristy resort area.

Awesome family run lodge, good breakfast and very kind staff. Short walk to the beach and bank with a few restaurants close by. We stayed for 3 nights after flying into Liberia. Fairly clean and right next to a small grocery store.

Great place, rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Grounds are well kept and the swimming pool tops off a day after the beach.

Lovely family ownership and very kind people. Nice breakfast. Room was large, clean, had a/c, and bed was comfortable. Nice pool. My main complaint is that the property is dated, the grounds need to be cleaned up and landscaped. The fountain didn’t work and it had murky water sitting in it. Its a small and quiet place with 6 bungalows and it has a lot of potential. I’d stay again, probably, just given the location and simplicity, and value, I just hope they can spruce up the place a bit and clean the surroundings.

It was a nice place, and close to the beach. But my room had a lot of big ants and couldn’t get rid off them. The shower also flooded a little bit. But the rest of the place was good and breakfast was delicious. Staff was awesome.
