our first trip to Senegal and this hotel feels very comfortable. Beautiful grounds, very helpful staff. the only problem is I dont speak french...the waiters and staff try their best and afterall, I am in their country. the rooms are well appointed, the beds are very firm. They allowed us to check in at 8am the day of our arrival for which I was very grateful. at the private beach there were at least 6 men working to ensure i had towels, water, etc, and they are forever cleaning and grooming the sand!
As an american i felt very safe and welcomed!
