European prices for an average hotel. Yes there is a beach and the WiFi is fast. Hotel sets us up for a $52 ride to the ferry. 30 minutes $7 for a bananna dessert Breakfast is $8 for bread and tea. Omlette another $5. I asked staff three times for bill. Took 30 minutes. Bill was not readable. Extra fees??? Rooms are overpriced. Hotel refuses to share WiFi. Instead of having a piece of paper in the room or the restaurant with the code you need to hunt down staff member.

I have chose this hotel for its proximity to the Ngor Diarama hotel as we had a conference there during the time of the stay. First of all, we arrived super early (around 8 am) and they checked us in after 30 min without paying anything extra. the staff is so friendly and very helpful. The only issue is the breakfast, it was practically the same every day (bread, croissant, variety of jams, cheese, butter, juice and tea/coffee). But overall i loved the place and will be glad to come and stay again here.

We stayed 3 nights so my husband could dive after a cruise on Le Dumont d'Urville, a new Ponant ship, and we were happy with the experience. The monkey and pelican have gone, and the birds quiet down when the covers are put on their cage. The dog and cats are not an issue. We had that 2nd floor room with the little balcony, overlooking the beach and N'gor, and it was spacious and comfortable. Having to get on the floor to use the safe was not so good. The A/C worked well (one day was ~100F), and the internet was fast and uninterrupted. Service was uniformly good. Breakfast was a bit expensive, but the pastries were excellent, every bit as good if not better than the pastries on the ship, which is known for its cuisine. Isabelle cooked an excellent dinner for us one night, which she will do on request, and she provided very good sandwiches for lunch. The decor was appealing, and local in style. I doubt we'll ever be back in Dakar, but I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone with a bit of an adventurous streak.

We stayed at Maison Abaka for 6 nights. Everything was perfect. We had the pleasure of spending New Years Eve at Maison Abaka together with Isabelle and her daughter and some other guests. We had a lovelely dinner, and a nice evening with drinks, dance and laughter. We got to the hotel through a chauffeur organized by Isabelle. The ride from the airport Blaise Diagne took about 50 minutes without ttraffic jam. We were welcomed by Isabelle, her lovely staff Basquette, watch dog of the house and two cats. We conversed in French, but English is no problem at all. We had a lovely spacious room on the 2nd floor which also had a small kitchen with a fridge. The room was tastefully decorated, with good aircondiotion and ceiling fan. Our room faced a big terrace with a jacuzzi and cozy sitting area shared with Isabelle, her daughter and other guests. Also there are two huge cages with Elvis, Albert, Zaz and some more birds. On the groundfloor you find the reception and several terraces, one around the pool, anothe a few steps higher facing the beach and Île de N‘Gor. Here you also have the bar and dining area. Here we had nice breakfasts with good coffee aswell as lovely dishes, mostly freash seafood but you could ask for salads or beef. In the souterrain you‘ll find Nautilus, the PADI dive centre. Very friendly and highly convenient if you want to dive! In the reception area you find a small exhibition with Senegalese art, carvings and decorative items which you can also buy. We were quite happy to get a few items here because the assistant will leave you cpmpletely alone, a shopping experience that is hard to come by. In front of the hotel is a small square with two little shops and a school. A few steps to the left is a larger place where you find more shops, restaurants and taxis. Last not least we want to mention Isabelle‘s boat which she uses for fishing or to get somewhere along the coast. We‘d like to thank everybody at Maison Abaka for giving us such a wonderful time! Dear Isabelle, Alexandra, Libas, Cher, dear Hilda, Amadou, Christophe and Frédéric, we wish you guys all the best and would love to see y‘all again sometime!
