“amazing garden and view”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

i have to start by saying that we got at Mansa Lodge after almost 24hours bus from Dakar, so it looked like paradise to our eyes. the room was nothing special but the garden and the direct acces to the ocean was simply gorgeous. we were the only customers we felt really spoiled. the owner is too dynamic person and he told us about his troubles because of the decrease of tourism in Cap Skirring.. he thinks its peddler's fault, cause they're harrassing sometimes. i think it's a wrong attitude. a part of this, Bintu the chef cooked delicious food and the place itself is amazing.

really nice location: walking distance to several nice restaurants. nice garden & the bungalow was very pleasant. but as mentioned by others, owner must have bad days - unfortunately he's not shy about it! on day #1 he had an argument with his staff - maybe about putting us in a different room than originally planned (not on our request) - and the kitchen aid & maid were not so nice later during our stay. As for tours, she first told us that she was very busy with a group of 120 people from Club Med (so much for small scale tailored tours!).. but we still went for a short boat trip on the river. We thought it wasn't worth the money asked - and said it. We got a long lecture from the owner about him paying all his staff (slavery not completely over there?!!) and taxes... but then were asked to pay in cash!
all in all, not a bad stay but maybe they grew too big (tour business is apparently booming) for their own good/capacity?

I reserve and pre-paid a % of a week stay... on arrival, we went directly to the beach as the pool is very small and at the end of day we had no water nor electricity... the next day, after a breakfast of cold toast bread and just butter and confiture, the full bill was presented to us and once we ask more information on the price taking in consideration those conditions, the owner got upset and ask us to leave! He was very rude and his reaction was really not proportionate... even his staff apologized for him... so never again!!!
