The hotel des Almadies is located nearby the Pointe des Almadies, a neighbourhood of Dakar. This hotel was the former Club Med in Dakar. A huge ensemble by the sea with a nice swimming pool and a nice landscape when you are looking towards the sea side. It has a snack-bar outside and some games for the kids. My main... More

If you were to look at the website for the Hotel des Almadies, you might think this is a lovely seaside resort. And indeed, perhaps one day it could be. They appear to be in the midst of a major renovation. In the meantime, however, it is a hotel to be avoided. The rooms are dark (not the lovely, sunlit... More

I stayed in the Hotel Des Almadies for a week, during a conference in Dakar. The low standards of cleanliness made this a very unconfortable and challenging hotel to stay in. Other people from the conference had no AC or hot water in their rooms... I had to change my room twice during my stay. The lounge and common areas... More

My experience at this hotel left me definite not to return there to stay. I might visit just to experience the coastline but surely not to spend the night. The mosquitoes in the hotel are unionized, I am sure. They must be programmed to go for guests. Our flight arrived Dakar at 2am and we got to the hotel at... More

My company organized a meeting at this hotel with around 40 staff staying there. Within one day we were calling it "hotel des maladies" (hotel of sickness). It was horrible, horrible, horrible. And if it were $50/night one might put up with it, but it was three times that. The rooms are dark and smell. The first room they gave... More

Though... food was good, restaurant/bar is nice with friendly staff. Patience may be rewarded. Unpredictable what will be available to eat or drink. Most people in my party had a very bad experience. Dismal Internet when there was any, only in central building. I was given a room in the outlying cabins (a good 7-10 minute walk) which look like... More

So first let me say that I realize that I'm a spoiled rotten American who takes clean water, clean toilets and a usual and customary bio flora for granted. That still doesn't mean I shouldn't write a bad review for an African hotel. Let me caveat that this place was cheap, cheap, cheap and if that's what you want you... More

I did not choose this hotel and was not able to switch hotels since there were no other rooms available that were close to the meeting hotel. Everyday the staff would "clean" the room and would either leave my balcony door wide open or at the very least unlocked. The electricity went out every day. Unfortunately, when it would come...

The hallways are unlit (long and dark) and dangerous; there are no peep holes in the doors; many of the rooms are dirty with mould on the walls; there are RODENTS in the rooms; the safe in my room didn't work; you cannot call out on the telephones (I couldn't even get a hold of the front desk); many people...
