          Good location, good restaurant; don't pay the rack rate.

          A bit overpriced for what you get, as is usually the case with Novotels. Decent pool, and located on the shore, there are nice views from some rooms. Excellent food with slow, uneven service. Location is good for visiting Gorée Island, you can walk to the embarkation dock.

Every necessary action …

          As we walked around the island and looked at the baobab trees and other things of interest, Betty just latched onto me and kept following me around. ...
