The Savana is a good quality, no-frills hotel on the isolated southern tip of the Dakar peninsula, and with rooms over £100 per night, I think rather expensive. The room was rather dated, with a noisy air-conditioner, leaking water onto the floor. There were no toiletries provided.
On the plus side, the rooms were of a reasonable size, en-suite, and balcony overlooking the 50 meter swimming pool, and views of the ocean beyond. At the cashiers desk you can change your Euros, GPB and USD, and some credit cards (MC and Visa) are accepted. The restaurant offered a reasonable menu, as well as a pool-side bar offering snacks (pizza, Panini, pasta dishes and burgers).
I found making the hotel booking particularly difficult (probably the language barrier). Email replies took several days, and were not always clear. Even after booking and then sending a reminder for an airport pickup, we were not on the driver’s list. Luckily, another passenger on our flight was also being met, so we managed to share a lift with him. A taxi would have been far cheaper and not so confusing!More
