I spent my wedding night at Bintumani in Dec 2010. The only positive thing I can comment is the very hot shower and nothing else. I was shocked to find out there were only 3 TV channels. One African magic and two Chinese channels. For $150 per night, you need to keep up with modern times. Such a beautiful building at a very rare location overlooking the Atlantic but it all boils down to the poor management.

Oh dear, it seems like very little has changed since I was there in 1986! My recollection then was a stagnant swimming pool, gateaux in a cool display that was not switched on, prostitutes pushing their way into your room.....Come on you've had 25 years to improve!

The worst hotel I never had in Africa.
At the arrival in your room you have the impression that the bed has not be changed.
No service in the room. Room not cleaned, towels not changed.

No hot water in the bathroom. After 3 claims at the reception, they finally send somebody to reconnected the hot water. No soap, no shampoo.

Breakfast is at the limit comestible. Do not take any other meal at the restaurant unless you want to be ill.

Hotel applies a very high price for the offered quality and service.

Only one comment: Don't go there

It was my first time and I enjoyed staying in Bintumani. The overview of the whole hotel was beautiful, seeing happy faces, live atmosphere and best of all.. good weather! what more could you ask for? Although the Food and the security could be more tight and they shouldn't allow random people (meaning prosi's) to be walking freely around the area other than that.. I surely am coming back!
