The property is very nice. The rooms are nice and very clean. I didn’t like the bath tub / shower. The staff at the front desk are nice and try to help best as possible. The staff at the buffet was kinda rude at the front stand. The wasn’t the best but you won’t starve. The beach and pool area are wonderful. If you go please remember English is not spoken fluent there

My second stay and the place in Malabo to recommend. Great location, friendly staff (Jordi in particular), good food and drinks!
One wing currently being renovated, just what will make this place an ideal one to stay!

The hotel is nice tough a bit of work will not hurt. Wi-Fi is really bad but is something “normal” for Malabo. Rooms could be as well refreshed, but overall it is probably the best place to be in Malabo.
The location is just near the presidential area, beautiful area and safe to walk around.
The breackfast stands out I really like the choices as well the food quality is excellent.
Sevice is good but stuff mainly speaks only Spanish and some French. Very difficult to communicate in English.
Thank DANIELRO76

Internet is abysmal compared to Hilton or my phone, really not up to international or regional standards at all. Property has a lot of charm, historic. I loved my room, nice bed, great view of cathedral, nice bathroom. A/C worked fun and had small fridge. Breakfast was outstanding, great selection. I liked the pool, very relaxed if not “shabby chic”. This property overall is OK, but not up to Sofitel standards I have usually experienced. I was at hotel for extended period and then moved to different hotel. Staff are nice, leaning ver good. But overall service was poor because there just were hardly any staff around. Nice for a weekend, but other options in town for extended stay. Sofitel should send an inspection team to fix the obvious issues, including the horrid internet.
