You really need to have a strong motivation to visit the Lac Rose. The Calao is a nice place but the lake itself offers nothing but dull view. The reputation of the lake is just a proof of the power of tourism industry, the salt mines and the land around the lake are covered of plastic bags and other waste,...

It is leafy and great for bird-watching. The individual cottages are roomy, the beds comfortable and everything works: water, electricity and usually wifi. The restaurant is between the large pool and the sea and the views of the sea are spectacular.

We found this place as an alternative to heading straight into Dakar. We were camping, and sadly the facilities were lacking hot water and decent toilets, the price was quite a lot. However the place was beautiful, the huts look good, the pool is great, well situated. The food was amazing and well priced.

I was busy so my husband takes the credit for finding this gem. Lac Rose is beautiful and we are told that September is not the best time to be here. The air is pure, I had become used to the Dakar pollution, the property a work of love, the family friendly and polite and a Frenchman, Pierre, willing to...

Pierre and Daba are wonderful hosts. Calao boasts delicious French and Senegalese dishes, probably the best Tapalapa (Senegalese 'Ciabatta ') in the country and is a lovely little oasis of beautiful flowering shrubs frequented by many species of multicoloured birds. They also helped us get our broken car fixed and helped us with a taxi trip to the atm effortlessly....

Beyond excellent!!! The best and most authentic place to stay and relax in peace with your family (or alone) at the Pink Lac! We stayed there for 3 days and with our 5 yr old daughter; and she did not want to go "home" :) - Wonderful owners, Daba & Pierre-Yves are just wonderful! - Pure fresh air, unlike in...

I made there a reservation but finally just went for lunch with a friend. Pierre-Yves et Daba were so helpful and friendly! They helped us with our trip and we spent an excellent time with them. The food was excellent and the place is an oasis next to the Lac Rose. Thanks my friends!

Nice and quiet place to stay. I had a bungalow with all basic needs. Only the room itself was a bit small, but I had a lovely terrace at mu bungalow and enjoyed every minute of my stay. It felt as if I was in an expensive resort...

Mythic spot. very beautiful surroundings, with various types trees and birds and kind of eagles. green all over the place. Super near to the magic Lac Rose, where you can go for a swim. The lake has 300% g per L of salt, and it's super funny try to dive there. AND it's in fact ROSE (pink). The restaurant its...
