Review:
The Badala is a rather subdued place which was erected in 1991 and designed by Alhajie Sammy Abdoulaye (Lai) Mboge. Though locally its name means "By the sea" this is somewhat misleading as it is some distance to the beach at a 290-metre walk. On the positive side it has an immense pool as well as gardens  which are frequented by a multitude of tropical birds. To get to the splendid strip of beach you will have to make your way through the Palm Beach Hotel where the local stream meets the sea. Don't worry both hotels are under the same ownership.

From a fairly massive front gate come parking space, a thin leafy path makes it way past the main reception lounge, television screening room and a shop on your right with the Sunbird la carte restaurant to your left. Dine in intimate recesses and partly screened edges under wood trimmed arches or in the adjacent eating porch.. The walkway careers through lush growth and onto the main pool area.

There is a well-liked pizza parlour and pool-bar called Farah's. It was towered over by a green roofed block containing Chekeh's Bar and the "Great Wall" Chinese restaurant .

Away from the pool tracks lead to 14 bungalows and 2 storeyed lines of bedroom suites. 182 double, 4 single, 5 suites and 16 triple with kitchen; most come with showers.

Available room rates are for bed & breakfast, double or single holiday apartment.
