arrived at this hotel last week. the location is in a quiet suburb of dakar one block from the ocean. it is a boutique -hotel bed and breakfast type but they do serve lunch and dinner. it is simply lovely!!. the room was quite large as we were three people. a/c is great and so is the hot water in the shower. the owners- are charming and the staff is delightful. everyone is so friendly. the breakfast(which was included for us) was so delicious- they make their own yogurt and it is served with fruit and jams. you can also get any type of egg or omelte along with ham and cheese slices.the pool is also beautiful but to chilly to swim. at this time of year, dakar has a nice breeze in the morning and nite , then is hot during the day.
the hotel is a block away from some beach restaurants- chez fatu and restaurant ngor- both right on the beach and you dine while listening to crashing waves.
if you go to dakar- avoid the noise and hustle and bustel and stay here. but you should tip the staff- (only a small amount if anything in the currency of cfa not euro's.
