A lovely calm place away from it all. A lot of wonderful wildlife to see and the hosts were very attentive. The room was clean and comfortable. Worth noting: as it's an hour walking distance / taxi ride from the village we ate breakfast and some dinners at the lodge which are good but fairly pricey.

We had a great time at Dalaal Diam with our party of 17 people. Because we had so many, we were able to see the accommodations in 4 of the different buildings. The view from the loft was incredible! If I went back with just my husband, that is where I would request to stay. For a small fee the hosts even filled up the aquatic living room for us, though we were only staying a night. We enjoyed exploring the lagoon, lounging by the pool/restaurant area, and the delicious African dishes. Thank you Frederic and Celine for a wonderful stay!

Dalaal Diam Village was incredibly beautiful. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful place to relax and unwind I would recommend visiting Dalaal Diam Village. Every meal I ate was delicious. While Senegalese food is delicious, it was nice having options other than ceebu jen (rice and fish), yassa poison/poulet, and mafe. I also want to say Frederic and Celine were very kind, welcoming and helpful. They gave me directions on how to get there before I arrived and were helpful when I called for clarification while en route. My friend and I felt comfortable the entire time we were there.

This villa is part of a larger eco-lodge that is under renovation/development at the moment. Airbnb blocks the website, but if you contact the owner the full website will be provided, which gives a better understanding of the overall lodge compound. We had a mixed experience, it turned out to be a lovely weekend but with a bit of confusion. The location is really lovely, but this place is a work-in-progress. Pros: The location is wonderful! The environment is just as pictured, it's unique to find someplace with such a natural feel so close to beach activities at La Somone and Saly. If you have a 4x4, the lodge is only a 15-minute drive from La Somone, and also very close to Popenguine. The atmosphere is very laid back and relaxed, and everyone was very friendly. Communication with Celine was excellent. The house was clean. Cons: This property seems to be in transition. During our visit there were workers at the property, and I understand renovation is going on at several locations. The photos of the house we rented showed a kitchen with a stove and refrigerator, but they have actually been removed. There is not even a water kettle in the kitchen, so really the kitchen is a totally unusable feature. Guests must either leave the compound to eat or eat at the restaurant, which is extremely basic. Staff were unable to give a clear accounting of what dishes they could prepare, and at what price. The menu and price list published on the internet were not accurate. The villa we rented was also extremely hot, and electricity to run the fans was cut in the night time. It looked to me like the house had not been designed as an "eco-lodge" concept but instead was being retro-fitted for that purpose. We were aware there was no air conditioning, but further work needs to be done to the house so that it is reasonably comfortable (example, remove windows and replace with screens, put ventilation in the ceiling so hot air can escape).
