“Miserable Owner, bugs everywhere”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

We stayed at Maya for our anniversary. BIG MISTAKE! When we were checking in, there were 30 dead grasshoppers all over the room. When I asked if they had mosquito nets, the woman said, "This is Africa, you know" . VERY RUDE, considering I have been all over Africa and I have even camped in many different countries. For 50 euro a night, I expect at least a bug free enviornment or a mosquito net. Usually we stay in hostels, and this is the BUGGIEST room I have seen in my entire life (43 countries)
The food was delicious, but the portions ridiculously small. The main staple for Senegalese is white rice, and we were given not even 1/4 cup worth!

The owner is a grumpy woman and the entire staff seems to walk on eggshells. No music, no laughter. Senegal is famous for TERANGA (hospitality) what a disappointment!

Another couple stayed one night and left immediately, they were terrified of the hundreds of grasshoppers flying around the room.

Room Tip: do not stay here if you have a fear of insects.

I've stayed here for months at a time, the staff were all excellent, the views are spectacular, the beach is beautiful with none of the hassles one finds on Cap Skirring beaches. It's in paradise and just away from the unpleasantness that can be found Cap, yet close enough for any trips in needed. And lastly, Rosine the visionary owner is a gem. She speaks more languages than anyone I've ever met and having worked for Club Med for 35 years knows how to make all welcome and comfortable. Hats off to everone there!
