Reasonable stay for the Somone area

The hotel layout and overall experience was very nice. The buffet and breakfast was unexceptional. We have orders off the menu before and been very happy but only the buffet was offered during this stay. Our children had a lovely time-its great place for families.

Really nice hotel and staff quite helpful but charging a different random price every time for the shuttle from the airport. And don't stick to the price that as agreed on the phone...

Nice place next to the beach but needs maintenance
Good reception but once i checked in and locked my door the door couldn't open and had to be broken. No phone in the room so i had to do some loud bang and shouting to get rescue.

Holiday comments
Clean conditions, quiet and peaceful, small TV only French speaking channels. small old fridge but cold enough. Food repetitive, especially breakfast. Nice clean swimming pool and comfortable sun loungers both at the pool and on the beach front. Lunch was OK, didn't eat at night so can't comment. I thought that the day trips were expensive. Don't go to Mbour horrendous traffic Saly is OK to visit. Regarding fishing trips, local boats are too light for the heavy swells, be prepared to get a bit damp with sea spray. If you like a cup of tea, take your own kettle, they are not provided.

Le personnel très à l'écoute et super sympa, toujours le sourire et toujours prêt à rendre service. L'hôtel est très bien situé. Un emplacement de rêve. C'est une petite structure donc très convivial. Nous somme prêt à y retourner une 3éme fois. Nous croisons les doigts.

Exceptional 10.0
L'ambiance très familiale de cet établissement m'a fait passé de merveilleuses vacances. Tout le personnel est formidable et prend soin des vacanciers. Merci a jules le chef cuisinier pour sa bonne humeur et sa gentillesse, ainsi qu'à l'équipe d'animation ( omar et Maurice) Qui sont au top, mais le reste de l'équipe est formidable aussi.... Si il y a un point négatif, et je peine à en trouver est peut-être le bruit de la climatisation dans la chambre mais ca c'est un détail
