About
Description
This hotel is located in front of a beach which is used as a fishing village where there is magnificent scenery and you can watch the local fishing boats bringing fish each day. The place was originally an More old colonial house which was converted into this guest house with huge rooms with balconies facing the Atlantic ocean and the fishing village. A huge art gallery where very ancient west african art can be seen and purchased, including statues and masks. A few steps away from the place can lead you to a huge market with fresh vegetables and all your needs. Less
