I stayed at this hotel for a business trip. It is beautiful and the rooms are nice. However, I felt like English-speaking customers do not receive a 100% customer service because the staff are not very much conversant with the language. I realised that the staff wanted to give more in terms of customer care but they were restricted because... More

I spent three nights here attending a business conference. Overall, this was a good placed to stay - room was spacious, if a little dated with great view over the ocean. The food was good, with great variety. Power cuts happen from time to time, but that was across the district so not the hotel's fault - if annoying! I... More

Surrounded by the Atlantic sea, a breathtaking view, romantic and very practical to conduct business. Close to the airport and easy access to the business district area. A nice golf and plenty of fish restaurants in the vicinity. A smell and sound of Africa.

The grounds and pool are very nice. The food however, was near in edible. I ordered 5 different dishes and found all of them to be less than mediocre. If I have to stay here again for work I will be packing my own food. The rooms are ok, no coffee and tea maker and phone didn't work. The bathrooms... More

Hotel was a little run down, it seemed fairly clean but was showing its age. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is right on the water and has a golf course on site. It is not downtown so you would need a taxi to get anywhere. There was security at the front but gate not closed at all times.

Good option for the business traveler, but don’t expect a lot. Kind of musty; the air conditioning did not work quite right. Also the furnishings were a bit frayed, but it was close to the airport and had a good breakfast, so it was fine.

Although it is located a bit far from city center but as its service is very good I can say that it is one of the very good hotels which I have stayed. Its price is acceptable ( I had special reservation) and paid 200$ each night including breakfast

I stayed here for 8 nights for a conference. I insisted for an ocean view room but was not given one. They also made me wait about 2 hours for my room (even though I arrived at 5pm, well after check in time) and I heard they made many many people who were at my conference wait for that long... More

Did a business trip to Dakar and stayed at this fine hotel. The front desk staff very helpful and service orientated. The complimentary Airport Shuttle a pleasant experience with smiling drivers. Breakfast excellent and the hotel beach restaurant and pool bar located with beautiful views of the ocean. The pool area equal to, or even better than anything I've seen... More
