I truly enjoyed my stay at the Pelican. It is kind of hidden and quiet. The rooms are not fitted with a fridge or kettle but there was one right outside our room and a full kitchen w/fridge for community use. Kitchen area was always clean. The WiFi was surprisingly fast. The hand held shower head was a bit of a hassle and we had a bit of a "moment" with the cleaner using our adapter to charge his mobile phone...inside our room. We laughed it off and I made sure the adapters were well tucked away just in case. The hotel is also in a great location. About 15-20 mins walk to the beach and one one of the main junctions so there's no need to pay for a town trip (private taxi) to get there unless you're traveling from with lots of bags. An 8-8 (shared taxi) will drop you off right in front of the hotel for 7-8 dalasis. (The price depends on the current price of fuel.) Just ask to go to Bakau from Traffic Light. Unfortunately if you are white or otherwise presumed to be a tourist, drivers may refuse to take you for the local price. Don't be discouraged though because a willing driver will come along.
Puntos a favor: I loved the location, the wall art in the rooms and corridors, the wifi, the kitchen and the spacious rooms.
Puntos en contra: Fixing the shower head to the wall would be a great improvement!
Ubicación: Beach (near Leybato's) is about a 15 minutes walk away and a great restaurant called the Butcher Shop. Short taxi trip away from the Senegambia Strip
