Husband and I loved our 2 week stay at this amazing little hotel. We stayed in the garden rooms across the road from the restaurant, pool and beach rooms but felt we got a great deal with colourful garden around us and very quiet. Less than 2 minutes and we were on the private beach where you could watch local long boats out fishing, pelicans bobbing along, traders passing by, goats and horses getting bathed and even visits from local tribesmen all dressed up. Staff were so welcoming , so helpful and really friendly. We did half board and food was moderate but local cuisine night was fantastic with fish and sea food we had never tried before ( sea urchin was one) . Breakfast was adequate but I struggled with the meat which was always very tough. Salads however were delicious and lots of variety and they sure know how to make sweets! We used the Hotel as a base to travel over North of country and it was perfect for this. Lovely pool to come back to after busy days. Bar with cocktails and plenty sun.

Room was big but bathroom could be refurbished. Staff makes the difference, they are great. Breakfast and Dinner are great with plenty and tasty food. We had a great time and we could oversee little problems with the wc.

I spent a night at this lovely hotel en route to Ziguinchor, Casamance. I arrived from Abuja in the afternoon and after a 45 minutes’ drive from the new Blaise Diagne International Airport I arrived the Somone village. The hotel is located by the main road going through Somone and you will find shops, restaurants and markets nearby. The Check in by the receptionist was swift, polite and helpful. I liked the interior in the room, the room was clean and had the rustic feel I really like. There is a beauty parlor, massage available and a souvenir shop on the premises in addition to a pool and a pool bar, the hotel is located by the beach with a wonderful sea view. I had the buffet dinner at the hotel restaurant in the evening and the food was very tasty. I left too early and prior to breakfast the next morning to try this option. I would really recommend this hotel and it is very convenient and pleasant for a layover and close to the new airport for Dakar.

We took our three children to experience Africa during winter half term. Hotel is in a good location with shops, restaurants and market nearby. Its a simple hotel, good value for money. Basic breakfast, clean rooms, no luxury but staff is lovely, they care and are very friendly. We did few trips to the local school, cookery lesson etc but the highlight was the nearby Safari park. Children loved it and had a new experience of a completely different culture. They loved the pool and we did some African dancing in the evening with the local group and hotel staff. We were there on Valentines day and chefs prepared special Valentines dinner with some creative dishes. Generally I would recommend to eat in the Sommone lagoon at least once. Its slightly hippie but food and views are gorgeous.
