My biggest memory of this friendly hotel will be the head barman .His expertise ,memory for names & service with ice cold beer glasses or crushing lime for the p'tit punch is a pleasure to watch.The ice cubes are made from bottled water so no need to deprive yourself .Sitting by the pool with a gin & tonic whilst Bob Marley is crooning on the speakers is how I will remember the Saly Princess.
This is the friendliest hotel I've ever stayed in ; starting with the Manager who is great with his staff & the tourists & this vibrates & passes backwards & forwards spreading the friendliness.
The chalet type rooms each with their own terrace are in well tended gardens with bouganvillia,hibiscus ,exotic birds & giant lizards .The rooms are clean,large & adequate with TV ,airconditioner & enormous double bed .Mosquito spray is provided though there are few mosquitos.Bring your own shampoo & shower gel .
There is often live music & dancing in the evenings & on Tuesdays it's Senegalese night where most dress up in local colourful materials to eat the battered prawns ,chicken "yassa"&other local dishes & dance to the tamtams .
Despite the cheap price we paid for the all inclusive holiday ;the restaurant provides excellent French wine & a good choice of salads & hot meals on their buffet .There is always fresh local fish & a choice of meats & vegetables as well as sweet desserts & plentiful fresh fruit at lunch & dinner.
The hotel has a small private beach & it's a pleasant stroll along the seafront to get to the banks,pharmacies,supermarket & numerous stalls & huts selling jewellery,coloufull clothing;wooden masks ,statues & other souveniers .A few have prices marked up so check them before bargaining in the majority !
