Nice Hotel, I loved the view from my room (119). But I totally hated the food, the restaurant is so poor, they have like 5 dishes for you to choose and they are all awful, and unhealthy. My advice, you should go eat elsewhere, but forget about the beach Restaurante cause they use the same horrible menu.

I spent several weeks in this hotel while working in Lobito. Despite of the expensive price (as everything in Angola), the rooms are basic and frequently you will have problems with the key card, the air conditioning, the wifi, etc. The beds are not very confortable and the pillows feels like they have a dozen of socks inside! The room... More

Where do I start? Poor if not terrible food. Very poor selection of food. No imagination for food styles. I think that's enough about food. Simple; eat elsewhere. Air conditioning, sometimes works. Depends if they want to switch it on. Serious security issue; they issued door key cards to my colleagues and I that could open any room. Room safe... More

Stayed in this hotel on a 28/28 rotation for work. The quality of food is disgraceful, the choice of food is disgraceful, the customer service in restaurant and bar is disgraceful. The rooms are average, beds are rock hard. Before staying ensure you find out if there are any beach parties organised in the Restinga area, as the parties go... More

It is a nice 4* star hotel located at the beach front, with great views to the beach and to Lobito's bay. It is very close to city centre (5 minute by car). It has a fair breakfast, with essential. Has free wi-fi in the lobby, in the room it was impossible to have. The cleanliness can improve a little... More

Standard for a stay in Lobito. Clean. Reliable. The only thing, again, is the Internet. To date I could not realize how a business destination does not take care of Internet as if it was gold. The Internet does not work in all the rooms. Be sure to test before you take your room definitely. Haven't eaten there but it's... More

Stayed there for about a month, the first thing you will notice is the Location, It is right on the beach with an unobstructed view of the Atlantic ocean, the beach is secluded, clean and very few people are there on weekdays, so a nice place for peace and nature loving people.

Hotel rooms great, TV very limited channels, service at bar terrible, service in restaurant terrible, food terrible. Location is great, within a stones throw of the beach. Beach terrace/bar in construction which will add to the appeal of hotel. The main downfall is the food and service.
