The grounds of the hotel are lovely -- ocean views, Goree Island visible, small rock/sand beach, birds galore. The pool looked nice, and the outdoor bar and restaurant were pleasant. Food for breakfast was fine (eggs, croissants, fruit, yogurt), catered lunch for our business meeting was great, but dinner only so-so. The bed was comfortable and had a mosquito net.... More

The hotel is in a very beautiful location. The rooms are old and need refurbishment. It has a very good swimming pool. They also have a very beautiful garden. Internet access was not good. It kept going on and off.

The Hotel is very beautiful with a very beautiful view of the sea from the rooms. The cool breeze from the sea and beautiful view from the open restaurant will make you feel wow. It has a very clean swimming pool and various sports activities, gym inside. The rooms are newly renovated and very beautiful. The center of the city... More

I stayed here with my partner and my 2 toddlers, too many stairs to climb and with a baby stroller is very difficult to move around. Rooms are correct with a mosquito net to protect from malaria, swimming pool is very big but not very clean.Food quality is not constant as you don't know what you will get as standard... More

Let's be clear, the hotel rooms are nice. A bit old, 70-80s but nice. The location is amazing, beautiful landscape. The garden makes also the hotel very nice What is not acceptable is the level of service for the price which is on the high side. 1. Internet access is bad and epileptic. 2. The olympic swimming pool, impressive, is... More

Stayed here for five nights in June 2014. The staff was professional and friendly. I enjoyed the breakfast buffet. The beach location is very pleasant. The room was nice enough, definitely not fancy by US standards but tidy, good temperature control and pleasant. I slept well every night and did not wake up with mosquito bites (there was a net...

The pool area, pleasant gardens, and view of Goree Island are the highlights of this hotel. The rooms are dated and small, the food very average, and the service lacking. The staff is friendly, if a bit bewildered by Americans, but they cannot make up for the noticeable shortcomings of this hotel. It's too bad, because you can tell it... More

I stayed at the Hotel Savana Dakar for 3 nights in June 2014 attending a business meeting that held in the same hotel. The hotel is really dated and in dire need of a renovation. The doors, windows and wardrobes need to be changed. Room was bare and the fridge empty and unclean. I had no hot water running in... More

Rather friendly staff and nice enough location, however the rooms, restaurants and the hotel is not worth a 4-star rating if compared to European standards. Leaks from the toilet on three separate rooms and rather old and unmodern rooms. Good service and not the worst price is positive things and I would rate this hotel as a nice 3-star hotel!

I am currently staying at the Savana Hotel. A place that I would not have choosen myself as it is far from my bsiness. But the excellent location on the promonitory facing the Goree Island is relaxing and makes ou recver quickly from a busy working day. Staff is attentive and helpful.
