The crew arrived in the hotel at 1:00 PM. The weather was very hot and humid. Perfect for tanning! We got the crew bags from the conveyers belt and thought of getting an airport push cart for my suitcase, trolley and handbag to make it more convenient to walk to our bus. Unfortunately, the airport guy was charging us money to use the push carts. …
... and dried fish. Behind those sellers were small boxy stores selling cleaning supplies, American clothing, spices, makeup, jewelry and much more. We passed all these places dodging the people and traffic. I almost ran into a long poll that a lady was caring on her head but Sule warned me. We went farther back off the street into rows of tinny cubicles stacked full of beautiful fabric with a rainbow of colors and designs. They also had the biggest ...
... come next, who was bring the food and drinks out, and other logistics involved in a large party. As soon as I came in Sule's Grandma grabbed my hand and took me around to introduce me to everyone at every table. In Yoruba culture when you greet people older than you, to show respect you bow your head and bend slightly at the knee. I was doing a lot of bending, kissing cheeks, hand shaking and taking pictures with ...
... only street food I can eat because the man uses an extremely sharp knife to scrape the orange skin away. Sule then buys a bottled water and washes the orange just to be extra carful.

How has this hotel rated in the past?
I had a great stay at Ikoyi. The hotel was great, very clean and very modern. I had a modern flat screen TV and wifi in the room. Their service was excellent. The staff were friendly and they offer great welcome drinks including cocktails and champagne with some butter biscuits. That was very thoughtful. The gym was basic but very neat, the bathroom has steam bath and sauna. Not all great hotels offer this.
Dinner and breakfast buffet had good options, but could be more than that. The pool is located on the right side of the driveway and even though there was a wall or divider in between, it doesn't feel that chill to hang out. The pool side was quite small and not very good for tanning because of the shade that covers the pool area.
