• Review: A 2 star tourist hotel with 73 African roundhouse huts or block, a Standard room sleeps up to 3 guests in double or twin beds. The complex has backup electricity and water. The seaward side of the accommodation has a raised sunbathing area to compensate for the lack of sand on the thin shoreline at high tide.

It has a busy main entrance lined with bumsters, chancers, layabouts, shoddy restaurants, petty traders, and taxis. The beachfront and the immediate area in front of the hotel are not well geared towards tourists; however the place has good transport links and is a value for money accommodation.

• Review: The Atlantic is a 4 star tourist hotel with 204 rooms and suites on the beachfront of the city. A 'Standard' room has a satellite TV, air-conditioning, an en-suite bathroom / shower, hairdryer, shaver plug, sea view or pool view, double or twin beds, plus 1 sofa bed and sleeps up to 3 people. Interconnecting Standard rooms and apartments are also available for families.

The downside of this place is the location - the capital. It's fine if you're on business in the city, but not if you are a visitor who likes to get out and about and enjoy the nightlife. In the capital there is no nightlife to speak of and transport links after 6pm are depressing. After 6pm the capital is like a ghost town!

12 double bedroom octagonal huts each with double bed (extra bed optional), running hot water, private shower, flush toilet, wash-hand basin, equipped kitchen with fridge and gas cooker, separate living room with satellite TV, strong box and air-conditioning.
