Le Kenkeni is a wonderful residence which makes you feel secure and comfortable in Senegal as soon as you arrive. The rooms are clean, well equipped and spacious. Running water and reliable electricity are enough of a luxury given the conditions in parts of the surrounding village, but the TV and DVD player were a real added extra (not used by us incidentally!) The true highlight of the hotel is the wonderful rooftop terrace, with it's stunning view of the nearby sea and the surrounding village. The hammocks and restaurant area instantly put you into relaxed holiday mode and you know that you're not going to want to leave at the end of the trip. The meal output from the rooftop kitchen is incredible and the friendly and accommodating staff are always on hand to deal with any request. The food is all locally sourced and it is varied and delicious while also being very plentiful. The groups of teenagers we were with enjoyed everything they were given, often asking for more, and that is not easy to achieve. The location of the residence is excellent, less than 5 minutes walk from the beach and the local village is easy to reach. The hotel is also very well connected and able to organise a wide variety of visits and activities in the local area. All in all, it was a real pleasure to stay at Le Kenkeni and I would thoroughly recommend it without hesitation.
