My husband and I traveled to Senegal with our two children, 13 and 16. It was our first trip (his 2nd). He stayed at Senegalstyle before and brought us back there because it was cheap. (My husbands words, not mine!). I wouldn't say 'cheap though because that implies bad quality and I found everything from the decorations, beds, food, cleanliness very nice. It's not a 5 star hotel and there are plenty more expensive places in Dakar. I looked online before we decided to revisit Senegalstyle, well, because it was a lot less expensive to rent a place that included meals and tours together. The photos are exactly as the rooms looked when we arrived and she keeps the place very clean.
My overall view of Sineta, her son and the drivers for the tours is very positive. Of course it's her house and she has her ways of fitting everything in to a 24 hour day. I don't know how she does it but she took wonderful care of our family and aided in helping us have a wonderful vacation in Dakar and I'm still smiling!
Like she says in all the emails (oh, LOTS of communication from her before during and even after we left she sent an email asking if the trip back was good!) She told us everything we need to bring (which helped us save lots of money) and what to expect ahead of time, including bringing our own beach towels.
Senegalstyle exceeded my expectations which were high because my husband had been there before!
TIPS: My teens loved the garden room, the 4x4s, camels and turtles at pink lake and the wildlife park. Fortunately we paid everything in advance or we would have gone thru more money at higher exchange rates once we got there. Being able to get up, eat breakfast if there was time (she packed meals for us a couple of times because we had to leave early) and going with our driver every day to go to a different place made it very easy for us. I didn't have to think or decide what to do, Sineta helped us plan all of our day trips and arranged for our driver to take us and pick us up from our daily outings. We just went had a great time and came back for dinner. Having Sineta take the stress out getting here and there made this the best vacation I ever had!
I Highly Recommend Senegalstyle...You Won't Be Sorry!
