We splurged to stay here for one night in October and were sorely disappointed. Even though we had a reservation that we had made three days prior, upon arrival at the hotel we were told that our reservation could not be found. We might have been worried, but we knew that the hotel was practically empty. But still we waited... More

Friendly staff, nice spacious rooms, great views of the ocean, well equipped and clean gym, good variety of meals. Definitely the place to stay when in Dakar. Taxis don't start until 7am I am told. Book the night before if you have an early departure.

This is by far the best hotel in Dakar! The staff was extremely professional and helpful. All meals were delicious,and the sea food was amazing. Located on the ocean it is visually stunning! I look forward to staying there again soon! There is a shuttle to and from the airport.

After a sleepless first night with generator and then drilling beginning it could only get better when they eventually managed to move me to another room. While overall it was a reasonable experience and staff were doing their best, it's the little things that don't give it the five or even four stars that you might be expecting. Slow service,...
