Nice upscale Hotel in Dakar? Think most are already full

Hi,

Was booking last minute for business and Meridien, Radisson and Novotel all appear to be booked. Is there anything else nice, but that might be less busy?

thanks.

1. Re: Nice upscale Hotel in Dakar? Think most are already full

My absolute FAVORITE upscale place here in Dakar is a quiet one that operates just under the radar but is very popular locally. I own a B&B myself but still treat myself to their FABULOUS SUNDAY BUFFETS whenever I can...

Those that live here know where I'm talking about - Terrou Bi!

It's class and not crass like the others, the staff is friendly the food is good, the private beach clean with soft sand and a border around the edges so the waves don't come in, making the water warm, they have a beautiful swimming pool, 3 different restaurant areas, a totally modern casino (no dealers for roulette - it's automated!) if that's your thing... in a nutshell, if I didn't live here (and run my own place!), I'd stay at Terrou Bi for sure!

No they aren't paying me and the mgmt doesn't even know me.

I've lived here 11+ years tho and started taking my children there for calzones and pizza at their reasonably priced grill years ago and still pop in once a month or so between MotorScooter Tours when I can.

I recommend their Sunday buffets highly to my customers as well.

They got a very ugly negative review here on TripAdvisor not too long ago, but I've never had a problem with the food there in 11 years and no one I know has ever mentioned anything either. My 20 something daughter used to go to the buffet practically every Sunday without fail for at least a year or two and never complained once so I'd say that was an unfortunate one-off.

Enjoy and if you need any more information regarding Dakar or our local tourism sites and day trips, check out the 'Things to Do' section right here on TripAdvisor and please don't hesitate to contact me!

Sincerely,

SenegalStyle Bed & Breakfast

Thanks so much! I did manage to get a reservation at the Radisson, although hotels are quite full right now. Next time I will give the Terrou Bi a chance.
