They charged twice on my debit card in settlement for accommodation and its been two months following up for the refund. Every time I call them they ask me to send email which i have sent so many so far with no success. I expected more from the hotel and have been deeply disappointed.

Air conditioning in the room varied from very cold to warm over the period of my stay, with no adjustment on my part. Room numbers very small and difficult to...

The rooms were clean and neat but well worn. Add 10-15 years of wear to the pics on the website to get an accurate feel. The breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of items and custom eggs. Poolside was very nice though the fitness center was dark and cramped. Overall the service was very good and it's a nice...

I lived in dakar for a long time, things you would like to do and hotels you have to visit, well this is one of them. Try to go on a Sunday enjoy the pool and a great lunch, you will be amazed by the huge building. If you like sports go ready and play some tennis with a coach....
