Omali Lodge Sao Tome

Introduction: OMALI MEANS “OCEAN” AND “SOURCE OF LIFE”. This is the perfect place from which to explore the natural and cultural marvels of the equatorial island of São Tomé. This elegant boutique hotel offers 30 comfortable rooms and suites for honeymoons, families and business trips.

Above information is how the hotel presents itself on their website.

Below is my experience based on a one-night stay at the property.

My arrival experience: Friendly welcome the receptionist escorted me to the room.
What I liked: The speed of the Wi-Fi in the lobby.
What about the food: Good breakfast buffet, while the overpriced margarita pizza could and should have been better.
What about the service: Some of the staff are service minded and friendly while others need a lot more training to deliver what is expected of a 4-star hotel in a country like Sao Tome & Principe.
What about my room: Comfortable room with air conditioning, flat screen Tv and sitting area, but quite basic. The resort is worth of 4-star, but the rooms must be improved in my opinion. Wi-Fi also need to work properly.
Number of rooms: 30.
Type of property: Resort.
Location: Sao Tome, Sao Tome & Principe.
Facilities: Pool and gym.
Complimentary internet: Yes, but weak in the room where I often got disconnected. A very fast connection in the lobby though. You will most probably have to buy expensive drinks to sit where the Wi-Fi connection is best. Very strange policy.
My overall impression: Good experience. A comfortable hotel and overall on the same level as Pestana, the only 5-star hotel on the island.
