The combination of choice of colours and poor illumination is absolutely depressing. Not a happy place at all. Day of departure credit cards couldn't be processed. No apologies. The manager offered me transport to the airport to go pick up cash from the ATM. He didn't look like he felt there was anything wrong on their side. Just wanted his... More

This is a very affordable friendly stop in a city we really enjoyed way beyond expectations. Lovely clean swimming pools. We loved the beach in front of the hotel with the little beach bars and friendly vendors. Would love to return.

Average place to stay. I booked a room at short notice. The guy in reception was about as friendly as a bear with a sore tooth. But efficient I guess. My room was on a main road so traffic noise was extensive throughout the night. The room was clean and presentable. The air conditioning was good and the wifi was... More

Stayed there for 2 nights. Rooms a bit used as well as the bathroom. Breakfast very varied though with everything you need and a nice view at the sea. Internet not great nor the tv. Right next door to a few restaurants and libanese fast food. Sliding doors do not close well.

Amazing experience at Le Virage which is just 5minutes drive from Leopold Int'l Airport. That for any traveler especially on a business mission is a big plus yet without compromising the ability to dip your feet in the cool waters of the great Atlantic ocean The ocean view is fantastic from the rooms, restaurant upstairs and even from the publicly...

Well located falling on a surfing public beach which cannot be accessed through the hotel. Beds and rooms were good as was the bathroom, but rooms facing the sea had A/Cs well underpowered. Breakfast serving is not for the health conscious. Staff were helpful and friendly. Wifi coverage and speed was acceptable. Hotel not really designed for the business traveller.... More

The room was clean and tidy. The Internet functioned very well. On the weekends, if you are taking an early flight from Dakar, do not expect breakfast at the advertised time. If you expect hot water in the morning in the shower you will be disappointed. The best you'll get his lukewarm water. The above being said, given what is... More

I stayed here four nights on business with a large group. This location is very close to the Dakar International Airport which may or may not be important to you. The facade of the hotel is sufficiently unappealing that on arrival, many of us thought we had gone to the wrong hotel and were about to be mugged. Once inside,... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the suite. The rooms are spacious, with good clean and hygiene standards. The only negative was the wifi which did not work at the base level (the suites area). Otherwise the breakfast is sufficiently limited. Wifi works great near the reception. The views are pleasing and the servcie is good enough. The airport pickup... More

“Ask for the rooms on higher floors to have a undisturbed view of the sea. While if you want to sea a walk away prefer suites.”
