We enjoyed four nights in a lovely suite at Le Royal Lodge. The suite was large, well cared for and very comfortable. Hotel restaurant is excellent. Good pool and beach.

Just returned from a week at The Royal Lodge and only have good / great things to say about the place. The transfer from Dakar takes three and half to four hours with the last hour on a dirt road - the transfer from the airport was in a Ford Transit which is not a particularly good off-road vehicle! whereas...

Royal Lodge is an unique place for a totally relaxing winter break. It is 3 to 4 hours from Dakar by car (including one hour on dust roads). Bungalows - I strongly advise to opt for a seaview - are large, finely and soberly decorated; they offer all comfort, including airco, separate sitting room, ample space to put your clothes,...

Gorgeous, tranquil, luxurious (without being pretentious) and so relaxing! Such a beautiful location. The villas are huge - we had one of the sea view ones but I think they're all about the same size. Bedroom, with adjoining lounge area, big bathroom with tiled, stand-up shower area, massive jacuzzi looking out over the beach (probably best to keep the blinds... More

Le Royal Lodge is not like the real world. You are pampered from arrival by a superb team. Even the gardeners greet you in a freindly fashion. I learnt from Phillipe, the owner, that he employs 76 people but you would never know it. The room was cleaned then later made up for the night without us ever being aware... More
