Thanks to its U-shaped design, the African Princess makes the most of its beachfront setting with views from the rooms, pool and restaurant.

The hotel only cut its ribbon in December 2018, so everything’s looking fresh and modern. Swim-up rooms cover the ground floor, while all the upper-floor rooms boast views of the Atlantic Ocean.

Entertainment

During the peak winter months, there’s live music every night by the pool.

Sports & Activities

There’s a paddle tennis court tucked away at the back of the hotel. Or, you can sign up for watersports* on the beach.

Facility Overview

This place is all about the water – whether it’s the oceanfront restaurant and pool, or the swim-up rooms. Entertainment-wise, it’s pretty relaxed, with a paddle tennis court and live music at night.
