I stayed for 2 nights at this homestay. The owner speaks English which is helpful when you have limited French. It is a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and the food, cooked by the owner is excellent. As a budget homestay experience this is a good one. The owner arranged French lessons for me (which I continued with after my stay) and... More

I am staying at SenegalStyle right now and I am looking at the shower floor. It is brand new. The owner asked me impressions of my room and the bathroom as well as the house in general. I think it's beautiful and told her so! Then she read me the previous review of the bathroom and bedroom. I have taken... More

SenegalStyle is Sineta George, American living in Senegal with her 20 year old son, Jonathan. We had two stays, at the beginning and end of our trip in December 2013. Location: SenegalStyle is not conveniently located close to the Dakar city center, though it is a fairly close taxi ride to the Ngor, Yoff and Almadies neighborhoods. However, there are... More

Hello and GREETINGS from Sunny Senegal! I am not going to even attempt to respond to all the complaints this man has. He was a very unhappy fellow when I first met him. You could see it on his face. He was traveling with his wife who was equal in temperament and very paranoid about everything, especially being able to... More

We haven't stopped talking about our visit to Dakar! As you know, we made several stops on our vacation and have to say that Dakar was by far the best one. It would not have been what it was if it wasn't for you. I am so happy that Dave found you on the internet, and we made arrangements to... More

I've spent the best week in west Africa in Senegal. I stayed in Senegal Style that was recommended in the lonely planet. Sineta the American, English speaking, owner is a star! She organised all the activities ( I did a lot!) for me, drumming lessons, surfing, horse riding at the lac rose, Goree island and more......all with English speaking people.... More

My husband and I traveled to Senegal with our two children, 13 and 16. It was our first trip (his 2nd). He stayed at Senegalstyle before and brought us back there because it was cheap. (My husbands words, not mine!). I wouldn't say 'cheap though because that implies bad quality and I found everything from the decorations, beds, food, cleanliness... More

Stayed at SenegalStyle for 9 days (8 nights) during May 2013. Certain things are very good such as the tours. I booked almost every tour through Sineta ie: Lac Rose, Bandia Reserve and Plaze Popenguine, City Tour. It comes out very affordable if you share with other people, I was able to share with 3 more people the first 2... More

Hello and GREETINGS from SenegalStyle! This review is actually during the same time period of the 2 other reviews (negative) by some girls that this reviewer displaced while he was here. The short story is, since they were young and he was an older man, he begged me, literally offering chocolates (that I refused - I won't be bribed), to... More

Hello and GREETINGS from SenegalStyle! Thank you for your kind words and for writing this review. I asked him to write a review for me because I felt the last few (negative) reviews from people who stayed at the same time were unfair and unbalanced, given the fact that the man who caused the discontententment at the time, never fessed...

We book through AirB&B and when we received the confirmation, SenegalStyle asked for more money ( in a separate mail not by AirB&B) telling us that this was not the price that we should pay. So we receive a separate Paypal invoice!! WEIRD! All is paid in advance! I agree with AKRasnikov in SenegalStyle you do not feel as if... More

Hello and GREETINGS from Sunny Senegal! I am responding to this review about a year later because I wanted to see what others (and you, gentle reader) would have to say after this, good or bad and because sometimes time and space gives more clarity.
