It's always good to be back here. Very helpful staff and the barman was really great. I love the fact that they now have bicycles for guests who are interested in cycling. The wide expanse of land with loads of greenery gives the place a serene feel.
Beautiful resort with so many amenities ...great security, constant electricity and AC. The buffet is grand, also the have live band every evening. Thanks Victoria for your extraordinary service. They have a golf resort as well.
very relaxed atmosphere after a long and hard day at a business trip. very warm and well mannered staff. good food and well thought designs. very clean & lovely bathrooms which are very important to me, so i don't pick up an ailment after a stay. great breakfast to set one on the new day's journey.
This property is excellent for a vacation. It feels like getting lost in the rain forest after all the stress of the city. It is surrounded by nature (green). Very quiet environment. The hotel has a pool area where you could relax with your family. Sure you could take very nice pictures at the water fountain outside your room. I had a good chat with a chef during a Sunday buffet brunch. They are ready to tell you all about Uyo and to explain to you how the Ibom food are made. He made Editan soup for me at the spot. The warmness i felt will always bring me back to Le Meridien.
There are not too many western standard hotels in the Nigerian bush. The Le Meridien is like a mirage. This is a top class hotel with a finely manicured golf course located in the shanty surroundings of Uyo. Uyo airport is new and modern. Look out for the old Colonial style houses on the way to the hotel. Great outdoor swimming pool, good restaurant, but pricey.
I took my family on a road trip in 2009 to Akwa Ibom (so i guess this review is a bit belated) then comprising my new expecting wife and myself to this beautiful Hotel set on acres of luscious green. At the time it had barely been commissioned if at all but had pretty much everything in place. My wife was initially very sceptical as it was her first trip to the SS but driving into the hotel up the streets lined with street lights and the sweeping drive way had her relaxed in no time. Easy check in, operational ATMs, were like the initial indications we would really have a blast. We were given a well appointed room with ethnic accents on the first floor which overlooked the pool, great view!! Our first meal was in the room, it came in good time, hot and tasty. breakfast we had downstairs with a decent spread and a good choice of freshly squeezed and processed juices. We went down to the sports cabin at the foot of the property and enjoyed chips and chicken while 'teaching' my pregnant wife the basics of snooker. A romantic stroll to the jetty had me thinking wow could it get any better. We had a unfortunate incident with the wife feeling under the weather on the second day and the desk kindly directed us to the clinic on site which was extremely helpful. What can i say the ambiance was beautiful, the meals tasty, the service top notch. I still look forward to returning to the property...... perhaps valentines day?
I took my wife and 3 kids on a road trip to Uyo, Akwa Ibom State of Nigeria just before Christmas. Having read quite a bit and seen a movie based on the resort, we decided to try the place. It was really beautiful. by the 3rd day, whe we were about to leave, my kids wanted us to spend another day. The food was great, the environment, beautiful and the staff very friendly. The rooms are spacious and the wifi was okay although it was unstable on the first day. Even the electrical sockets have power ratings for Europe (230 volts) and America (115 volts). They really thought of everything. The ATM machines in the hotel didn't work but I wouldn't blame the hotel but the banks that run the ATMS.
This quiet resort in the heart of Akwa Ibom provides the kind of tranquility and serenity unheard of in Nigeria. The manificient grounds with beautiful fountains and pools complement the palatial interior of the building. The guest rooms are well appointed and comfortable. However, none of the above would rouse any interest, or make any difference if the services were mediocre and perfunctory. In this case, the conscientious staff adds to the splendor, especially at the restaurants where tasty Akwa ibom cuisines will keep you going back for more. Try this resort, and you will surely go back.
Stayed 4 nights on a business trip. Rooms are spacious comes with minibar, nice bathroom, and firm bed. Somewhat disappointing that there is only one restaurant that serves a mix of averagely prepared Nigerian and international dishes - with a waiting time of about 30 mins. Perplexing that a 5 star hotel does not have handdryers and soap dispensers in the common toilets. The hotel host an 18 hole golf corse, has a equipped fitness center and 2 swimming pools.
My family and I didn't enjoy our 6 days stay in the hotel and people shouldn't be deluded that it's a 5 star hotel...it's actually 2 star. Can you imagine a 5 star hotel without constant internet and phone services? Such was our experience in the hotel. There was even power outage for close to an hour with no apology to customers in the hotel! The facilities are even giving way. Bathroom doors are soaked with water, making the base so dirty and ugly and the bath tubs are rusty (we took two rooms and both tubs were very rusty). Really shameful! Walkway rugs are stained and dirty with stench oozing out. The elevator walls are never well tidied. Sad. What a 5 star hotel! And it's not even a children friendly hotel. What more can one say? Doubt if we'll be there again. Horrible, to say the least.
