At first I chose to stay at SenegalStyle because I dont speak any french or wolof, so I would surely be more comfortable with someone speaking good English with me. I had some trouble planning my trip and Sineta was always very helpful, as well as her son Jonathan. The house is nice and very clean, the breakfasts and dinners were simply delicious, always served with a nice tea (oh my god I miss those homemade teas!).
We did the city tour and it was nice! We visited some galleries, markets, touristic spots and at the end I got myself a GREAT piece of artwork for a song at Village des Arts, had it framed and it looks FABULOUS!
The location is very good since it is in a walking distance to the beach, and close to some touristic points that are really worth a visit. You must take a taxi if you're heading downtown but it's cheap and not far. I didnt regret staying there at all. If I get back to Senegal anyday, I would SURELY stay there again.
