Generally the hotel service is nice and i must commend the management of southern sun. Reception personnel that welcome me at point of arrival were warm. However, areas still need to tight up is anti-virus on wifi, too many pop up that could affect your system. Also, some basic toiletries shouldn't be asked for, like tooth paste, and shoe cleaner.

Southern Sun is a well positioned hotel with a great team who provide excellent service. It's easy to go to mainland Lagos or to Victoria Island. The staff is very well trained and polite and made my stay a very pleasant one especially as it was a long trip . Truly good value for money .
