10/10 Exceptional

We had a very pleasant stay for our first visit to Mauritania. The hotel staff was very helpful prior to and after arrival to arrange airport transportation and to help us navigate to required COVID tests for departure (PCR free of charge by government and provided results the same afternoon). Hotel does not have a shuttle, and breakfast price is much less (10x) than shown in info page. Hotel has a lovely pool to cool down in or relax by. Fast Internet. We would stay here again.

10/10 Exceptional

My room was very comfortable, the A/Cwork well, the housekeeping staff was excellent and so responsive,especially Binte Traore, the supervisor and Mama Toure her assistant. The breakfast buffet offered a nice selection of delicious fresh fruit, locally baked bread and sweet rolls, etc, tasty omelets, etc. Security was excellent. The grounds were well maintained, including a lovely swimming pool. The hotel is well situated near the center of Nouakchott. I enjoyed my stay very much.
