Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Roberts International Airport, or “Robertsfield”.

What to Expect

  • A small international airport with limited flight service, filthy facilities and minimal shopping and dining options.
  • Reviewers describe this airport as congested, dirty and rife with extortion attempts by airport staff. Once you get past the security checkpoints and into the boarding/waiting area, the atmosphere is much calmer.
  • Exorbitant airport “departure” fee.

Where to Sleep

  • As of May 2017, we have no reviews from travellers who have attempted to sleep in this airport. Write a review to help future travellers!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
