we didn't stay in the hotel. but after the visit of the chutes de la lobé and a nice beach walk you can reach the nice beach bar of Hotel Ilomba. Very nice and cosy terrace and friendly staff. Kids loved it because you can play giant chess outside.

This is a paradise for me. The hotel is situated at the beach. Very clean rooms. Very good restaurants. And best of all is a very high level of service and hospitality. The rooms and the suites are all in very good condition, it is not often you find a hotel in Cameroon where everything is in order and works....

I am not easy to please but it is hard to find serious faults to this place. Unlike other hotels in Africa , most things actually work here, the service is very good and it has that friendly atmosphere that makes people greet each other -)). The rooms are very clean, they are bungalows in a tropical garden and the...

I stayed at this hotel with a large group. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. I went in with realistic expectations and they were exceeded. So, here's my experience: Room I was a single traveler so the room was perfect for me. The bed looked rather small and if I had my husband with me we would have been cramped....

Took my family for a short brake and I was recommended to book at the Ilomba. The place is nice although far from everything in Kribi but when you decide to have a break you better go to place where all your needs are fulfilled. The rooms are OK but should you consider an extra bed for your child...forget about...

I was impressed with the ambiance. The rooms are ok, clean and cozy, not the greatest but comfortable. The place has a lot of plants and a nice beach bar. The waterfall is a short walk away along the beach. The beach itself is ok, enjoyed the sunset, very relaxing vibe. Really enjoyed the food, that was excellent at this...

This one is difficult for us to review as we have to remember we are in Africa. However, having said that, there are good hotels in Douala and somehow we seem to think the top resort spots in the country should be beginning to match the city hotels. However, this is definitely not the case. The bungalows look charming, the...

I stayed there for one night and I can absolutely say that Ilomba is the best hotel in Kribi!!! The rooms were clean, the staff were friendly. The bar is next to beach and you can drink something near the ocean. It has also perfect beach and a cute swimming pool. By the way don't forget the see Peacocks...

We stayed at ILOMBA for a weekend. The setting is great, one literally steps out of the room directly onto the beach and it is a very ecofriendly environment.. I also enjoyed the food "Pot au feu a la mer", hope I got the name right! The soup was great and I ll definately come back to savour this delicious...

I have been there twice and each time I enjoyed it. Your room is a little bungalow near the beach, sunny and very clean. There is no wifi and no television. The restaurant served delicious food but it might be a little expensive. There is a nice private beach where you can walk and also a bar where you can...
