I stayed at La Madrague twice in April. Located in Ngor, this small hotel is super friendly, rooms are large and well equipped (although more outlets would be a welcome addition), quiet and if you are facing the sea, it's just such a treat to fall asleep to the sound of the wave. They have a sea-water swimming pool that's... More

Prior to booking my stay at La Madrague, I read all the reviews, in which some of them were pretty scary, and frankly was a bit concerned when I booked the hotel, having booked due to its proximity to a conference I was attending. However, from my initial contact to my departure, the hotel staff, the room itself, the restaurant... More

We stayed at La madrague for 2 nights having arrived late in the evening. They arranged a taxi to meet us at the airport and organised the cost (which was very reasonable).we had a nice double room overlooking the beach and it was a real surprise to wake up in the morning to such a lovely view across to the...

travelled with a friend all Senegal for humanitary reasons and arriving there we couldn t share the same room i had to book another hotel for him. all this was told in a very unfriendly way telling us that people here just come for sex. Stay away from this hotel there are better places nearby for much less money

Since I had a house in Dakar I didn't use La Madrague as a hotel but as a restaurant with a pool on the beach and for that it was perfect. The beach can be very dirty in Dakar so you can use the pool instead. The fish was delicious and the wait less than in typical Dakar. The colors... More

This hotel is very pretty. It is quiet and clean. Our room had a huge balcony with a lovely view of the ocean and beach. Due to its location, the opposite side also overlooked the ocean. The water is hot, the towels and linens clean. The room was serviced when we went out, and none of our things were disturbed.... More

I have placed several people into La Madrague, explaining carefully that the location is on the beach close to several nice little restaurants and the canoe to Ngor Island, please don't stay here if you are expecting 4 or 5 star, Dakar is an expensive place to visit, most hotels of a 3 star standard are equivalent to a 2star...

I went through all the reviews about the Madrague, curious to know what other people thought about it. I do agree with other visitors by saying that the environment is very French and rather arrogant; I also tend to believe that the local employees are subdued (but where are they not??). Also true that people at the reception were unfriendly.... More

Did not get the sense that most of the staff or management was particularly eager to help you (some very friendly exceptions of course), decent restaurant, average breakfast, so-so pool. Not super effectively airconditioned. I think I'd either look for a better bargain or pay the little bit more to upgrade to a nicer experience. Only possibly worthwhile if you... More
