isabelle and her team are wonderful. My colleague Gilles has been frequenting it for over 4 years and it was my first time. came away very impressed. Right from the airport pickup to my departure, the team was helpful. In the mornings, Isabelle would join us for coffee and share stories of the dog, cats, pelican, monkey etc who co-habit... More

This is a hard review to write because there were so many amazing things I enjoyed about Abaka. It is not slick or polished, but it is very laid back, right on the water and feels like a true part of the village. Super easy to get to Ngor Island too. I loved sitting in the cozy bar overlooking the... More

Stayed only for 3 days for a workshop in a big fancy hotel. This was the authentic and balanced alternative. French owned, rooms are clean, petit dejeuner is simple and perfect and the wind and view from the sea is brilliant. Downstaits they have a dive school and thats how the place felt. Not luxurious but laid back and friendly... More

The staff are not friendly compared to all the other places I have stayed on my trip to Senegal.The owner seems to simply ignore her clients with a tired and bored air.Sadly I also got sick eating here...so I am not feeling positive about the place.The beach view is great but swimming is out of the question as it is...

Abaka it's a clean place but with a very weird atmosphere. They have a pellican in the middle of the swimming pool (whose waters are murky) that tries to bite the clientele and screams during the night if rainy. Personnel not very friendly. Specially in the diveshop. Internet is fast and tv is good, so is AC

Maison Abaka is a charming little hotel. The location is breathtaking as you look out onto the waves and N'Gor Island (which I definitely recommend visiting: not to miss the site where "Endless Summer" was filmed). The room I had was lovely: spacious, pristine and perfectly equipped with all modern conveniences. Everyone working at the hotel was very nice and... More

Maison Abaka is the real deal. The setting is ideal, and I do mean IDEAL. If Club Med or Le Meridian is your thing and you like spending lot's of money to sit around in a sterile environment then Maison Abaka may not be for you. But if you want an authentic Senegalese beach experience at a reasonable cost and... More

The staff is simply outstanding. The food is great and the manager go out of her way to make you feel right at home. The location provides ultimate relaxation on the beautiful Ngor beach. This is a MUST when you stay in Dakar!

I have been returning very frequently to Maison Abaka, and will always do every time I go through Dakar! Very friendly atmosphere, wonderful location by the beach, facing the Island of Ngor, and 5mn away from the airport. Rooms are large, nicely decorated, and reasonably priced. Lots of activities are offered, diving club, Big Game Fishing, Surf school... Ad on... More
