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.
