    There is a big difference between the images and the videos that the hotel has put on its social networks. Me and my friends stayed there for two nights and we were disappointed to find that our room was awful for a 4-star hotel. As well as giving us a room that wasn't suitable for our booking, the fridge wasn't working and the water was running. There were no fittings in the shower and the mould in the room made us sick at the end of our stay. The wifi in the hotel doesn't work and nobody gave us any explanation. Customer service is barely available. You can't eat peacefully in the restaurant as there are lots of flies and bees. The food is not bad. I have to admit that in this bleak stay we had a few moments of pleasure thanks to Alieu who is a game man who works in the hotel. He did his best to please us. I give this hotel a 5/10 and take away the 4 star rating. I would not recommend it to anyone.

    My daughter's and I stayed at Balafon Beach resort for 30 days and 29 nights. I absolutely loved the experience and their Service was top notch. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. Sanna was a very nice young man and one of the most helpful. I will be coming back. Thank you, from the Allen's

    The resort requires a lot of TLC, none of the rooms come equipped with telephone, the internet is slow and unreliable, power shortages is a frequent thing. There are tiny living creatures in the pool despite being cleaned on a daily bases The staff are friendly and helpful, specially during the day. The resort serves a good continental breakfast. The food is average at best, their burgers are the best thing on the menu. There is mix clientele, a lot of people use the resort for hookups, one is likely to see young local man and woman with older foreign counterparts. Great location, lots of amenities within walking distance.
