We spent a marvellous week at this small and lovely little hotel. It's a 90 min taxi from Dakar airport (they can organise a taxi pick up for you) and a short walk to the fishing village of Mbour. There are only 5 or so rooms - they are simply but comfortable and ensuite. Some are a/c. A few things are incredible about this place - firstly, the pool area is a *great* place to chill out and cool off. We spent many happy days lounging and reading - it was an amazing place to wind down. Even better than that was the staff who were endlessly helpful and kind - the best were found in a country of very warm people! The dining area was also quite beautiful - sandy and shaded and overlooking the Atlantic - quite majestic.
The downside for some people may be the beach which is 50 metres beyond the end of the hotel. It's more of a 'working' beach than a swimming one, i.e. lots of fishing going on. This was a non-issue for us b/c we preferred the pool, but others might object.
Overall, this place is tremendous value and a great place to chill and do little trips from. Strongly recommended.
