If only all hotels were like Tama Lodge. The service is friendly, efficient and discreet.The food is excellent, fresh daily and simply but beautifully cooked. We were fortunate enough to stay in The Malian Room, a suite that had a magnificent selection of African wooden statues, many more of these artworks are displayed in the grounds and in a tented...

We stayed for 5 nights in Tama Lodge in March 2014. It felt like paradise. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Everything is done with attention. Even the way the breakfast is put on your table is with attention. Every detail is thought about. There wasn't a single thing that looked better on the internet than in real life. The food... More

We've liked Tama Lodge very much. It is very special, not average. Why? Because of the sunny beach, the delicous food they serve and the kind people who work at the lodge. The sunset was beautiful each day, temperatures high. You should note that its location is not remote, many local Mbour people live very close by, which makes is... More

We stayed one week in January, wanting to find a nice place to get away from busy Europe, but not willing to fly far, but have great weather. Look no further, we found it! Tama lodge is conveniently close to the Dakar airport, however Mbour is far enough from Dakar to leave the busy city life behind. The lodge is... More

Its hard too find word for this experience but: Beautiful location Lodging was excellent and the whole place was a piece of art. Every detail seemed to be thought of-zen feeling. The staff and the management was fantastic. The beach was great and a gave a good opportunity to be part of the local beach life. All the people we... More

We had a lovely stay. The beach huts are lovely, the food wonderful, the staff helpful and attentive to detail and the location stunning. We also got help with the planning of trips and the guides whom the lodge is working with are very professional. Also happy to say that the excursions were fairly priced which is otherwise often not... More

I selected this small, boutique beach hotel because of the interesting West African sculptural art collection the owner had put together but I was astonished at how interesting it was and how beautiful and delightful the hotel itself is. Comprised of four African chief huts, a large and exquisite round house, some garden rooms and a a beautiful art filled... More

I hovered between 4 and 5 stars on my rating - a couple of niggles on service brought it down but it could almost claim the top rating. We had a "casa plage" - which is quite set back from the beach which is probably a good thing in light of the busy beach. Very nicely deocrated, comfortable bed and... More

We live in Dakar and it was our 2nd time at the lodge in a beach bungalow. We're still as happy as the first time for the following reasons: 1) clean, practical bungalows, air conditioning for those who need it, wi fi available at the reception area 2) despite the fact that the beach is public, it's a very nice...

One of my college roommates and I both happened to be in West Africa for work and chose Tama Lodge to meet for a girls weekend. It was the perfect choice. Tama is just outside of Saly in Mbour, so has a much more "authentic" feel. We walked down to Saly one afternoon and were very glad we weren't in... More
