This hotel is just before you'll enter Kolda on the right side of the road coming from Ziguinchor direction.
Nice painted huts are spread along a very nice garden with flowers. The huts are not too close to each other, so voices and noises of other people won't disturb you.

The big plus of this accomodation is the pool. It really looks nice, but there is no maintainance. The steps entering the pool are broken, and they tried to fix it with some rubber-like material but didn't really succeeded in that. It looks quite messy and un-professional. And that's a real pity as it is a nice spot.
So it continues with the huts.
The bathroom is equipped with a rusty and moldy shower, a toilet and a washbassin. Everything doesn't look so clean, this could be done much better for sure.
There is only cold water available for the shower.
Many pieces of the tiles in the bathroom are broken.
There is airconditioning and free wifi.

Prices seem to have gone up since the last edition of the Lonely Planet
The price of the moment was 23.000 CFA for the double airco/breakfast (we payed 23.000 CFA after negotiation)
For the triple airco/breakfast they asked 30.000 CFA, but we ended at 23.000 CFA after negotiation.
The dinner is around 3.500 CFA and there is a menu to choose from.
This hotel really had potential to improve, but things have to be fixed and repaired.
Right now you pay too much for what you get.

In the afternoon the village runs out to Le Firdou to get a fresh dip into the pool. So it can get quite crowdy by local people. This is not nice for the hotelguests I should say.

Our guide and driver could stay here for free, and that's nice!
