The fact that the room was not cleaned when I checked in was very bad to begin with! I got to pick up the receptionist Fallou and showed him that the room was very dirty. I had to wait for the room to be cleaned. The room had old chewing gum and smelled of smoke. I chose a non-smoking room. It does not meet the requirements for Covid-19 regulations. The poor cleaning happened several times during my stay. I complained to the human resources manager. Furthermore, I thought that some of the receptionists had a very strange behavior and they were unpleasant. It is difficult to understand their bad treatment and behavior in fact. They have plenty of staff who do nothing. You can sit for a long time and wait to order food or coffee. It takes just as long to get served when it comes to service staff overall. Room service is failing as it takes time to get help. I needed to iron a shirt for an important meeting and when I asked for an iron or help to iron my shirt, it took all day without any help. I went to the meeting with an unironed shirt. Ironing table and iron came to me after I had been to the meeting. I was told to repack as the hotel had other important guests from the US, who would be staying in the room already occupied by me. For two days all my clothes and things were unpacked and I waited for the eternal move. After two days, when I asked, I got the answer that I was allowed to keep the room. Unfortunately the hotel was empty for the 15 days I stayed there. The outside is very nice but inside are dirty carpets, poor cleaning and self-absorbed receptionists. Margarithe and Fallou are professionals and treat one with kindness. I think the hotel is not worth 5 stars. There is a lot that does not work well, among others, the door at the entrance and that the room lacked a breakfast menu. Security check was ok . The receptionists can go on a new skills training so they can become service-minded. They have plenty of staff who do nothing. People who really like their jobs are needed and clients must be treated equally and with respect, even the locals. Some male receptionists are disrespectful and they are ashamed of their duties.

We’ve been going to Terrou-bi ever since it was just the Pier and the Restaurant. It is now the best place to dine in Dakar. Why? The brothers, Kamil and Samir, are highly trained ‘Dudes’ and it shows in the Michelin Star-like quality and presentation of the food. On our last visit for my younger boy’s birthday, they laid out a ‘mango theme’ menu. On arrival (advanced booking is must), the tone is set by a very a warm, friendly and professional welcome from a well trained staff. Once seated, we we’re treated to a tasty successions of little appetisers to set you on the mango trail, about six of them, from small morsels of red mullets topped with a frothy crème, rillettes, pâtés, compotes etc...This was like a ‘dégustation menu’ exploring all the variations on the mango taste which did not disappoint. And to top all, to our surprise, they made a fab chocolate cake for my son, and Kamil and his wife kindly came to our table to wish my boy a Happy Birthday! Terrou-bi is not just a gastronomic night out, there is a Casino, NightClub, and Beach and Buffet at week-ends for a whole family to enjoy. For your first time in Dakar, the place is a Must!

I checked in at 3am, luggage service excellent however had to wait for the registration, was checked in to a room that smelled cigarette , it was late and I was tired so I just figured I ll change room in the morning Next day I asked to have my room change, it was quick, room available before 3pm, again luggage service perfect, however this time the room had no balcony just sort of a window on top of the restaurant, couldn’t even open the curtains .. so I had to unpack and pack again for the third time for a room change that I did the next day. For someone who a in a long stay.. it s necessary to make sure to have a set room since the beginning Haven’t seen a front desk manager or guest relation through out my stay, no excuses were made about the multiplie changes .. it would have been the right thing to do. Pool staff , very good, even though the transat are quite used the service is quick, smooth Best service at restaurant la terasse, where the manager always there asking if everything is good and very hands on Room service.. needs serious update in service ... u must be aware Everyday I had different set up of amenity in the room , sometimes small towels , sometimes big.. over all good, never missed a day, respect the dnd , and always curtious !

I spent a beautiful weekend at the Terou-bi, with a beautiful room with sea-view. Restaurants with breakfasts and especially brunch on Sunday were amazing and it was a pleasure to stay at the terrasse then just to chill. The swimming pool is like on pictures, so chic and designed. Casino is full of every machines and tables of gaming you need, like a little Vegas in Sénégal ! A special thank to M. Fadouga for all he did for my friend of me, and hope to see you again soon. Stéphane.

Great location, views and food but this place is badly let down by front desk service. Lack of training? Nail in the coffin was when house keeping walked straight into my room without knocking!! Expected better from a 5 star hotel.
