The resort has well planned activities, but serving staff are inclined to be grumpy. WE enjoyed the stay very much and plan to return soon.

Nice GetawayPosted Sep 12, 2012 on Hotels.com
Hotel Decameron is a nice hotel with great beach front rooms. I suggest spending the extra cash to get a room on the beach. Very romantic!

Great location & staff! Dirty water, internet $$$!Posted Aug 21, 2012
Pros: Location, staff, beaches
Cons: Outrageous internet charges, filthy water in the sink, bad tv reception, far from airport-no options
This is tough! The location, activities, staff, and food were all great. The BAD that is easily reperable; 1. Internet charges are ridiculous. 5 euro per hour or 25 euro per day in public areas ONLY. If a hotel does charge these days, it is usually in room only. One day it rained all day. I asked the desk if guest at least got free internet that day. No...again, RIDICULOUS! 2. The ONLY transportation from the airport is a 50 euro taxi. Again Ridiculous. They should have other options! 3. The water out of my sink came out brown! When I asked to speak to the General Manager, I waited over 6 hours then was told he was waiting for me in the lobby. He was very gracious and explained that as it was rainy season they have a filtration issue but that it was still safe. Really? I think not. No offer of any sort of compensation...not even that 50 euro ride back to the airport which would been a nice gesture. As a hotelier myself, I was aghast. I would have given 50% off the stay. 4. TV Reception very spotty, not reliable, limited. I love the location and staff. The items above are not expensive to fix. They had the opportunity to make a disappointed client very happy for under 100 euro. They failed at this. Had they recovered in a positive way, I would have rated the hotel 5!

Somone's ParadisePosted May 4, 2012 on Hotels.com
It's a great hotel located a the end of the main road of Somone, so it's very pleasant, no more hotel after Royal Baobab, juste the beach and the lagune. We have just one negative comment to make : too many animators and animation extremely noisy from 9:30 to 23:00... Frankly, it's too much! Fortunately, you can go to the beach away from the pool and noise! And ask for a room far from the pool! But it's great with kids and food is excellent and very diverse.

Great getaway!Posted Jun 28, 2010
Beautiful hotel with plenty to look at, eat, drink, and many various activities from dusk till dawn to keep you entertained. All-inclusive is very nice. The food was delicious and different each day. The ocean brought in a lot of trash but workers cleaned it up in the early morning. Beautiful though and great waves. Rooms were nice but the non ocean view rooms / shower was small (you can shell out more per day for a bigger room). A/C worked great. Staff was very friendly especially if you speak Wolof. We only speak English and did fine although everybody spoke French. Minor things we didn't like. Pools were very clean. No need to leave the resort with so much to do. We stayed a week and didn't want to leave. The internet is too slow for business. Very expensive too. Overall very beautiful and relaxing. The message on the beach was great! Jet ski, 4-wheelers available. We went on a boat and went fishing. Very cool and caught about 12 fish. Some I've never seen before. We will definitely be going back because we currently live in Senegal and it is a great get away for us. So if you are in this neck of the woods it's worth looking into. The price is reasonable and it is very family friendly as we have a young child. He had a blast too. Would definitely recommend it to anybody. P.S. The Gin and Tonic was my favorite.
