It is a remote vacation village of Ouidah, facing the beach and among the palm trees and dunes. The rooms are in bungalows with views of the ocean and the marsh. They have a pool and sun loungers and parasols on the beach. Although the beach, as the entire coast of this part of Africa, is lovely, is not advised for swimming. It is better to go to the pool or canoeing in the lagoon. It is a quiet resort, with great food and French origins run by the owners who are Lebanese. The village also has a special charm, with structures in elegant decadence reminiscent of a colonial past.
Hotel consists of several blocks of apartments that are all very comfortable, but what makes it unique is the charm of the restaurant. It's made up of houses with wooden piers on the lake. Enjoy a luxury dinner overlooking the lake and the boats with fishermen. In addition, fish is delicious and they have croissants for breakfast.
I finished my trip in Benin in the Auberge Grand Popo. This was a good ending, as it was comfortable and pleasant, due to the combination between the comfortable hotel, the tasty food and the huge beach. That said there is no bathing, because the Atlantic in these latitudes is treacherous. And also first contact with tour groups throughout the trip, especially Spanish, which, was not bad to make a smooth transition to Africa from the materialistic Europe ;-)
This hotel was built in 1995. It boasts 110 rooms and is situated just 5 minutes from the airport - if you want a shuttle service will be available.

The Benin Marina Hotel is in the city of Cotonou and has a modern and contemporary look.
