The hotel was fantastic.
The general location, decor, and offering was brilliant. It's a beautiful seafront property with very excellent architecture and decor and an amazing staff.
The only reason why I do not give it 5 stars is because there are minute details that got overlooked. For example, the windows in the "garden view" rooms cant' open completely because they knock against the curtain skirting. And other tiny little this and thats. My other major issue is that there is no garden to view. If you're staying there, face the ocean or spend your time outside your room.
Once out of the room though, you can see the thought that went into the hotel. The top-down architecture (lobby is on the top floor, rooms are below that) with the massive dangling chandelier and beautiful spiralling staircase are a great touch. The entire layout of the outside area is brilliant. The only little hitch here is some of the seating area is right outside certain people's rooms. Which can be amazing or bad. Amazing because, if you have one of those, your view is spectacular and you can walk straight out, and take a few steps into the bar and the infinity pool. But bad because if someone decides to sit outside your room and have a loud drunken conversation, you need to shut them up.
But this did not happen while we were there. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a touch of lux in Dakar. Excellent service, fantastic location, excellent facilities, great ambiance, great views.
