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.

Very nice set up and beautiful facilities, but: - you pay a -significant- premium for an Executive Business room and get the exact same room than the standard one (the standard ones are even better as they are closer to the lifts and enjoy a better view...). DON'T GO FOR THE BUSINESS ROOMS - Even in an empty hotel, the... More

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,...

I stay there three or four times a year and I keep going. Very well located. Settings are great. Pool and gym top notch. Service is excellent. Food in the hotel restaurants is also very good, even though a bit expensive. The nearby commercial complex provides with options for meals and many services.

One tends to have some expectations from a hotel charging $350 a day. A 1$ water bottle is not provided in rooms except on day 1!! really?? Is it that much to expect? Location is wonderful but the keys will not work at all if there is a phone nearby. Irritating indeed. Transport needs to be paid directly to the... More

Dear Mcairae, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience at our hotel. We are very concerned to read about your disappointment. The tab water is treated and filtered, therefore potable, however a bottle of water is provided everyday in business class rooms for the nespresso machine.

On my second business trip to Dakar, I stayed 4 days at this hotel of good-to-great repute. It lives up to expectations. Gorgeous pool side bar & dining - perfect for the evenings.

Can't rave enough about this hotel. Rooms are spacious, very trendy. I loved the little assortment of nuts and pineapple chips that were in my room upon my arrival.

Hotel is on the beach, not far from main attractions and markets. Hotel staff are pleasant. Great breakfast buffet to start the day. Will definitely return again. Modern up to date, and excellent wifi.
