The hotel is situated on the coast south of central Dakar, set into the cliff above the sea, away from the noise, bustle and traffic of central Dakar. The only disadvantage of this hotel is the number of stairs down from reception to the rooms and bar/restaurants. These stairs can be slippery when wet.
I liked this hotel, it had an excellent atmosphere, with views over the Isle de Gorre. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, ours had a small balcony overlooking the huge pool and the sea. They are not that modern in style, but the air con worked well, the bathroom was excellent, the free wifi was good and there was a TV.
The staff were welcoming, well trained and efficient.
We ate twice in the restaurant. For the first dinner we were part of a large group of 15 , and the service was slow and the food suffered from not being served as soon as cooked. However, we ate the following lunch time and dinner as a couple and the food and service were much better. Indeed some of the best we managed to find in Senegal. The Pelican restaurant is nicely situated above the small private beach, within sound of the sea. The food was reasonably priced. Do not expect an extensive wine list, but what was on offer was reasonable.
Breakfast served in the restaurant overlooking the pool was excellent.
I have rated this hotel as excellent by the standards of Senegal, not by those of Europe, but it was the best all round on trip our through Senegal and The Gambia.
We enjoyed our stay here.
