For a 3 star rating, azalai hotel de la plage, is highly competitive and well deserving considering the fact that it's situated in Benin. The rooms facing the ocean offer a beautiful view of the pool area and the beach. The windows can open to let in the breeze from the ocean. This is especially relaxing if you are the...

PLEASE DO NOT STAY HERE. No matter what the other reviews say about it being the best hotel in Cotonou, this is not true. The hotel itself is passable but the service is atrocious. From the moment we entered till we left we were cheated and given very, very poor service. The front desk provided the majority of the cheating...

Hotel centrally located, just on the side of the port, on a very dirty beach. The facilities are quite decent for this area of Africa but under the international standard for this hotel category. Rooms look a bit old, some ones are humidity smelling, but those on the ocean side have a great view from a large window. Breakfast is...

This is a relatively good hotel. Service is great. remember to ask for a sea view room else you will be staring at a construction site at best. Don't be afraid to try the local pubs down the road for some cold ones.

I were a bit surprise, the first time I w s be there. I was heard talk about it and the talk was right. It is just a pretty cool Place with a parking (only clients, of course). Now to speak about the service, I can say is good. They always have this spontaneous interest to ask you about where...

I stayed at the Azalai hotel de la plage for a week in february and was really impressed with the excellent service, good security and polite staff. The food was also great ...and not too spicy... and varied. I enjoyed my stay.

Two things impressed me about this hotel, namely, the seaview from the room, with the sound of the ocean that fills the room. The front desk provided good service. Especially Bernice, went out of her way to ensure that my stay was good.

I had a GREAT stay at "hotel De la plage" in Cotonou. Great view and the swimming pool area is to die for. if you want to relax and enjoy around or in a business trip I would definitely recommend this place. Great staff members and the food is diverse and taste.

Probably the worst hotel with regards to customer service I have ever been too. Arrogance and just plain old ignorance from the staff make ones stay unbearable. The only good thing about the hotel was the rooms. They are comfortable and elegant.
