The location is great, it is the only hotel directly with beach access and it is possible to take a bath there in the sea, which was surprisingly warm. It got a great pool area. The food and breakfast is average, but the brunch buffet on sundys excellent. The guests seem to be mostly Europeans, especially French who are meeting... More

While staying in Dakar I visited the hotel for the pool and beach area. It costs 5000 CFA for non-guests and it is a nice price since the area is clean, spacious and cozy. All in all that was a good experience.

This is a review about using The Hotel des Almadies pool and beach for the day. The pool area is very spacious. You can can with a party of 4 and feel like you have an area for sitting all to yourself. But if you are coming with little children, beware that the pool doesn't really have an area for... More

This hotel is located in a quite quiet and somehow safe zone of Dakar. It's old, remodelations underway, but still you can see the potencial it has. The rooms are wide enough, but old, the pool and the private beach are the main atractions. Internet service is available only in the lobby and in the bar, and it's somehow slow...... More

During the transition construction, the limited rooms available (some with sea views) may not meet tourist expectations for price, but the setting is unique. Access to the beach and pool is available - at the discretion of management - for very reasonable day and monthly rates. Solo women travellers value the security, and "no hassle" peaceful environment. Be friendly with... More

We booked this hotel for Christmas and new year lured by the photos of the nice beach and pool (which indeed are the only two things worth saving). Looking at the comments the hotel has been a work-in-progress for at least two years and the place is still a big construction site. We were given one of the "renovated" rooms... More

I thought the hotel, location, staff. food, service were all fab. The only thing that let the hotel down was kitchen rubbish being dumped on the beach. it's a beautiful location isn't there another place to dump the rubbish?

I do a fare amount of traveling around the World including all over Africa. I stay at places of various quality and prices. However I have never come across such hotel where every aspect of the experience, with the exception of it's ideal location, was so bad. Although most of the staff are friendly and smiling, unfortunately this is where... More

I spent 3 days here at a conference. The room was huge and dark, with orange curtains and lighting that gave everything an odd ambience. The view of the Atlantic was stunning, and the flowers and landscaping of the property is lovely. But the buildings appear to be crumbling. Restrooms had no soap, towels or hand dryers. Buffet lunch was... More

I was here sometime last year and enjoyed my stay.. Firstly, I would like to get some facts straight with anyone who wants to visit it. Breakfast: the breakfast buffet is very expensive therefore not suitable for a light eater.. I on the other hand am a heavy eater so I knock myself out with their pancakes (on of the... More
