This hotel is bookable online via our sister website, The Senegal Experience.

Set amongst colourful, tropical gardens, the Hotel Neptune offers a good standard of accommodation with an excellent reputation for service and quality and appeals in particular to guests who are looking for a peaceful retreat.

You will undoubtedly be drawn to the hotel’s impressive freshwater swimming pool, which is the central meeting point for guests; at 400m2 in size, it’s the largest in Saly, and with its own Jacuzzi, it is perfect for cooling off and swimming. Although not immediately on the beach, the hotel’s own private beach is only a stone’s throw away and you can relax there in comfort whilst staff serve you with cool drinks.

For those who want to participate in some light exercise, you can play pétanque, badminton and table tennis, or enjoy a workout in the fitness room. A well-deserved rest can then be taken in the massage and beauty salon, which offers a variety of treatments.

The serene and spacious suites are arranged throughout the gardens in two-storey houses; with a separate lounge area and bedroom, and light furnishings, they exude a bright and airy feel, quite in keeping with the hotel’s tranquil atmosphere.

For dining, Neptune’s restaurant is well known for excellent cuisine and guests can enjoy typical African dishes as well as a delicious European menu. For something a little different, sample one of the themed African evenings, which take place in a genuine Mauritanian tent.

About the Local Area (Saly)

The resort of Saly is located on the “Petite Côte”, approximately 80 kilometres south of Dakar and 65 kilometres north of the Sine Saloum Delta. Saly is an ideal holiday destination that has long been popular with French and Belgian tourists and as such has a very established feel, with its variety of hotels, palm-fringed sandy beaches, calm clear waters, bars,restaurants, shops and a wide range of activities.

The smaller resort of La Somone is only a short drive from Saly and enjoys an idyllic location beside a stunning lagoon, home to the Réserve de la Somone, a birdwatcher’s paradise. Nearby you can also visit the Bandia Nature Reserve, a small but perfectly formed wildlife park where you can see roaming freely: giraffe,rhino, zebra, ostrich, antelope, buffalo, bush pigs, impala and many other birds and animals. For the more active, both Saly and La Somone have several excellent water sports centres offering a range of activities such as jet-skis, water-skiing, catamarans, kayaks and windsurfing, and several excellent fishing clubs offering world-class deep sea fishing. Quad and buggy tours or horse treks are available in and around the resorts and Saly is home to an attractive 18-hole golf course as well as the Accrobaobab Adventure Park, where you can climb, swing and slide on a series of nets and ropes amongst the baobab trees.
