Beautiful setting on the ocean. Pool very nice. Pool bar drink prices expensive, but pool bar food prices pretty good and quite tasty. This property bills itself as a businees hotel. I doubt many people will take that seriously after they experience the absolutely horrible wifi intenet. I was here for a week and never saw my laptop or tablet... More

The hotel is also within flight line of the airport, so at certain times during the day and night you can hear the planes going over. Rooms do not a tub but other than that are... More

Ocean facing rooms are pretty spectacular. The infinity pool is particularly wonderful for watching the sunset over the Atlantic. And the food is really good. Nothing at all to complain about for this hotel!

Check in: employee on the phone during the whole check in. Room: front a wall; terrible, noisy and inefficient air conditioning Mosquitoes in the room. Good to get malaria Planes depart from Dakar airport just above our head so got awaked several times during the night. This is just bad.
