“Charming simple place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Very cute and simple hotel located above the beach on the Petite Cote. Lonely Planet accurately described it as a "hobbit house." Building materials are locally sourced - shells, bricks, and very charmingly used. There are several small outdoor dining areas. Showers in the rooms are a bit "iffy," but for the price not a problem. We stayed in 2 rooms in a turret-shaped tower. A great place for the price.

Room Tip: Two rooms above the interior dining rooms provide a good view of the ocean, and you'll feel Lady...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

This hotel is really a pearl on the "Petite Cote" outside of Dakar. Like a little colourful mini-castle but much more colourful on a cliff with beautiful beaches below, in the village of Toubab Dialaw. Apparently it use to be a dance and art school (they still have courses occationally), and you can tell by the charming "courtyard" that the place can bring a lot of inspiration.

The rooms where same charming old style, but this also meant that the windows were quite small in our case. Beautiful biew of the beaches though! The rooms were quite simple and small, but clean. The shower only had cold water so we only showered saytime as the evenings can be a bit chilly in February.

Restaurant was unexpectedly good and not very expensive. I can recommend to try the Senegalese specialty "Thiebo Dienne" (not sure about the spelling) in this place it was cheap and nice, but you have to give half-day notice for the chef to prepare it.

I would say it is a REALLY charming place to go to this one, You should go mainly for the charm. The location is also good, although the village itself doesn't have much to offer it is only 15 mins from Popenguine and close to other attractions in the area. It is one of the villages on Petite Cote that is closest to Dakar too and with a paved road almost all the way to the hotel,

Room Tip: There are some rooms facing the ocean and beaches with really beautiful views!
