We stayed here after a gruelling journey from Colorado with our large dog. We were moving to Guinea Bissau and this was a very welcome stop along the way. Our dog had to stay in the car (they were worried she'd bark, but she ended up baking because she was away from us in the car). Aside from the cultural... More

After a slightly rough entrance the staff was able to figure out our room assignments and to their credit one of them spoke good English so that was nice. Pool was clean and the kids had a great time. Room was three star clean with some parts of the bathroom still under construction. AC worked good but it was one... More

My stay in the Flamboyant came at the end of my trip to the Casamance region, and it was the perfect way to end it! The rooms and bathrooms are pristine, there is air conditioning, wifi, and warm water (something rare in Senegal). I stayed in a larger garden-facing room, and the view is beautiful. It's more expensive considering other... More

I stayed here last year during a mission trip. It was amazing to step out of a van on a very West African street and enter a hotel you would find at resorts in the Caribbean. The room I was in was next to the pool and basic but clean and well kept. I was able to visit other rooms... More

Stayed here twice, to and from Guines Bissau. Second time they were booked, but called all the guests that hadn't checked in and found us a spot. So kind. Wifi works in rooms, a cooling glass of Bissap juice on arrival, and a decent restaurant - les tourists, ten feet across the street. Pool nice. They will change euros fir... More

The hotel staff was excellent. It's far enough away from the water that you can stay outside at night with no or very little mosquitoes. The pool is cold but refreshing. It's very close to several good places to eat, and drink. The vendors just outside are the very best, and extremely helpful.

Flamboyant is the typical hotel for business man: clean but very impersonal. the receptionist that received us was strict and pretended the money immediately (the only time in our journey) - we were tired from the journey and we had to go to the atm, we asked her to wait a bit, just the time to recover. looked like we...

I don't understand why travellers have such a high opinion on this hotel.The rooms are big without mosquito nets and full of mosquitoes.Every evening they spray your room so after this it really smells bad and you have to pray that the mosquitoes will not come.For an air con room you pay more but you cannot really use it since...

I can't see why people are so enthousiastic about this hotel. It lacks all charm. The rooms are good and clean, even hot water, the wifi works OK, but that's all I can say in it's favour. As the hotel has a swimming pool, but not any kind of sitting area, bar or restaurant, there is not much else to... More
