An excellent hotel, quiet, and within easy walking distance of the beach and good restaurants. The room (on the second floor overlooking the pool) was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Food and service (including the arrangement of airport transfers) were very good;

The hotel is clean and the décor is lovely, fresh, modern. And the cats are a wonderfully sweet addition! If you’re only staying a night or two, La Residence is perfect; if you’re staying longer and service is important to you, you will be frustrated. There are a couple of

I stayed here in December and February. All lovely. Best part is being a stone’s throw from beach where there are super beach restaurants (low key nothing swanky). Owned by a French couple who have businesses in Senegal and who obviously visit regularly. Lots of lovely artifacts

I booked two rooms through Expedia. We arrived late at 12:30 am after traveling from the US. They said they had no reservation for me. I showed them the email from expedia on my phone and the print out. They had two rooms for two nights but did not even honor the price that I

Can you help to arrange tours for me?
The front desk has at least one amazing tour guide. But he can only be booked through Reception at the hotel. If you want to be certain, I would call or email in advance.

"We stayed in the main house, with larger rooms. The annex also has wonderful space."
"If you can climb 2 flights, #9 on the third floor had a beautiful view and was huge!"
"Although the large suite was lovely, it did take a while to cool down so one of the upper floor room overlooking the garden would be best"
"I preferred my 2nd floor room over my poolside room. Beautiful view and very quiet!"
"Avoid family room and any rooms with sliding doors."
