First bad sign. Nobody met me on my arrival at the hotel. I don't really need help to carry my bags but in a five star hotel I was surprised that no one was to be found when I arrived. second bad sign: the system was not working to use my credit card. They asked me to come back later.... More

I highly recommend avoiding this hotel at all costs. Extremely slow staff and their front desk manager is the rudest person alive- literally leaving me in mid-sentence, waiving me away because he disagrees about details of hotel reservation. Just to preserve his name in infamy, it's Mohammed Sam. Just thoroughly and absolutely awful staff and service.

The location near the airport and on the sea was fantastic. The pool is great. The food thinks it's better than it is and the drinks are a bit overpriced. The room was older, but comfortable. Wifi was very fast. Elevators were cranky. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

I really enjoyed the location--walking distance to good restaurants and shops in Almadie. The rooms need updating but otherwise a good experience. Service staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel shuttle is also very convenient.

This hotel deserves only 3 stars if one considers that the rooms are not renovated and furniture smell like "grandma home"-. The services are generally good, except the gym which is small. The golf course which seems part of the hotel is completely separated. I recommend the buffet on Sunday.

don't know who is giving this hotel such a bad review! I loved this place! Certainly not a five star, but a fine older hotel that has been renovated within the last ten years. Yes, it looks a little old, but it is in fine shape....the breakfast buffet is included, and it is totally sufficient, with a fruit bar, omelet... More

So I stayed at the hotel once again due to business and I got to say that this hotel in my opinion is just good it's not that excellent but when it comes to security I guess it's really good, the north American embassy is just 100 mts away. The hotel seems to be in renovation...the rooms are bit old,... More

Rooms : They are getting a little outdated but roomy. Air conditioning did not work quite right. Location: Great view over the ocean. Close to the airport. But a little bit far from the city main attractions, restaurants and other entertainment venues. Amenities: Perfect for a business meeting with the adjacent convention facility. Checking : The front desk staff need... More

This is a very nice hotel. Large and has a roomy feeling throughout. A little dated with dark colors and wood but clean and well maintained. It is roomy and adjacent for a convention facility. Perfect for a business meeting. Less so for vacation. Lots of building in Dakar. Hotels are scattered. Taxis are necessary to local travel for this... More

If you want a good hotel to cool your heals at in Dakar, I suggest you stay at this hotel. My stay was relaxing, clean, none frustrating and the food was excellent. Internet was adequate to complete my daily reports for work, Skype was poor, but the voice was usable. The rooms were a little outdated but roomy, I'm sure... More
