Horrible Joyeux Noël at this gasly property. Had to change rooms 4 times. The 1st room smelled of mold and mildew so bad you couldn't breath. The 2nd: just stank. Horrible odor. *Mind you we're in 9 room suite!!! The 3rd room didn't have an pots, pans, plates etc in full kitchen. Microwave is not working. Microwave turns on but you smell burning wires. Each time the staff comes,they look, bring you free juice or Christmas cake to make up for it, smiles in your face and leaves. NEVER EVER fixes anything. Seventeen calls later, calls for managers, but no managers are in Africa, they are in other countries we are told and rude staff parade through our rooms and eventually they offer to move us again but all that is available are smaller mold mildew smelling rooms. The living room had a welcome basket of rotten fruit. Staff smile and take away only the worst items. We are asked if we want free dessert. The sausage this morning was half cooked. The bacon was warm mostly Raw. Potatoes and pancakes cold. We said okay, let it go nuke it in the microwave. Microwave didn't work. Okay we got to stove here, pull out of pot and let's just heat it up. Okay there's no pots or cups or anything in the kitchen. 12 hours later and we're still in the same position. No pots in the kitchen. No breakfast. But they brought this free Yuletide cake and smiled in our faces. One of the rooms the lights don't come on. We go to the pool to relax and are rudely escorted away away from the pool saying we can't us it. We show our room key but are horrified as we are escorted out. A manager has to accompany us back to po chairs, again it's the have a free drink on us. Worst experience of my life and my 1st experience as an African American to the motherland. Horrible inhumane service and experience. All manner of civilization is absent. Overrated barbaric experience at best. Do NOT visit Sofitel Abidjan Hotel Ivoire. You'll ruin your vacation, get treated poorly at best, and go home frustratedt best!!! Sofitel Abidjan Hotel Ivoire in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire offers a barbaric 3rd world NIGHTMARE.

I am SURE you have experienced this only because you are yourself a mean person. So it was only a reflection of who you are.
