Average place to stay. I booked a room at short notice. The guy in reception was about as friendly as a bear with a sore tooth. But efficient I guess. My room was on a main road so traffic noise was extensive throughout the night. The room was clean and presentable. The air conditioning was good and the wifi was... More

Stayed there for 2 nights. Rooms a bit used as well as the bathroom. Breakfast very varied though with everything you need and a nice view at the sea. Internet not great nor the tv. Right next door to a few restaurants and libanese fast food. Sliding doors do not close well.

Amazing experience at Le Virage which is just 5minutes drive from Leopold Int'l Airport. That for any traveler especially on a business mission is a big plus yet without compromising the ability to dip your feet in the cool waters of the great Atlantic ocean The ocean view is fantastic from the rooms, restaurant upstairs and even from the publicly...

Well located falling on a surfing public beach which cannot be accessed through the hotel. Beds and rooms were good as was the bathroom, but rooms facing the sea had A/Cs well underpowered. Breakfast serving is not for the health conscious. Staff were helpful and friendly. Wifi coverage and speed was acceptable. Hotel not really designed for the business traveller.... More

The room was clean and tidy. The Internet functioned very well. On the weekends, if you are taking an early flight from Dakar, do not expect breakfast at the advertised time. If you expect hot water in the morning in the shower you will be disappointed. The best you'll get his lukewarm water. The above being said, given what is... More

I stayed here four nights on business with a large group. This location is very close to the Dakar International Airport which may or may not be important to you. The facade of the hotel is sufficiently unappealing that on arrival, many of us thought we had gone to the wrong hotel and were about to be mugged. Once inside,... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the suite. The rooms are spacious, with good clean and hygiene standards. The only negative was the wifi which did not work at the base level (the suites area). Otherwise the breakfast is sufficiently limited. Wifi works great near the reception. The views are pleasing and the servcie is good enough. The airport pickup... More

We spent two nights in this hotel. Distance from the airport to the hotel is about 5' by car. We received upgraded rooms (suites) which were OK. Clean, spacious but no wifi reception and only cold water available. Complaints at the reception resulted only in "we will advise our technician". The second night they finally came to repair the cold... More

The cab initially took us to the former "Virage", we booked a suite to make sure we would get a decent room in Dakar close to the airport. A horrible strong smell of toilet freshener was psrayed in the corridor and our room, certainly to cover a bad smell. We arrived in an overrated dump, with a dirty bathroom containing... More
