Nouakchott Mauritania Marriott Hotel
As part of its expansion in Africa, Marriott International has signed an agreement to open seven new hotels, including a new hotel in Nairobi, Kenya, and two hotels in Cape Town, South Africa. As a result of its expansion in Africa, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts recently announced plans to develop six new hospitals across Africa, which are expected to open by 2020, doubling its presence on the continent.
After the opening, Marriott International will operate a 44-room Marriott Executive Apartments in Lagos, South Africa, owned and developed by Landmark Africa Group.
The Societe Des Lagunes hotel will be located directly on the waterfront in a residential area that also includes an embassy district. It is due to open in 2020 and is also part of a mixed-use development that will include a hotel, office space, retail and residential units, as well as a restaurant, bar and retail space. The 25-storey hotel is due to open in the 2020s and is the first of its kind in Africa and the second in South Africa. Locals regularly host the Monotel Ran (Spanish for "father and son") with a Senegalese DJ and are busy at two in the morning.
Mauritania is an Islamic republic and the people are very reserved and conservative, but they are also incredibly friendly and welcoming. As someone who has been on the estate and others have told me, Mauritanians are, by and large, very nice people. You occasionally meet some rude people, but on the whole Mauritania is a very friendly country and the Mauritanians themselves are very nice people!
It is also a protected natural area and World Heritage Site, making it a popular destination for tourists in the area. It is popular with travellers for its interesting old town, whose ruins are still worth a visit.

The country is not well connected to the international banking system and Visa cards will not work at ATMs. The above information is now completely up to date, with the possible exception of messages. None of the above still serves as a reliable source of information about the hotel, its location or its amenities.
The choice of restaurants is limited, the quality is often poor and the prices are high, but you can perhaps buy a sandwich. The bread is available in most markets and a good alternative, although the price is high.
If you want to cook, there are many large markets, including Deja Vu near Du Gaulle, which specialises in American produce. The Capitale and Marches de Sixieme brands are good places to buy local specialities and souvenirs.
The Sahara Cafe across the stadium has the best budget food in town and is also a good place for pizza sandwiches and Lebanese. On the Ave du Palais de Congres, bebe Chickandy, the halal fried chicken, is a very popular restaurant with a wide selection of local dishes and good service.
Also nearby is Sun House, which offers alcohol for Westerners but no alcohol, subject to availability, although there is a good selection of beers and wines at the bar. French and Spanish clubs and restaurants are operated from 2000 to 3000 oug per drink and offer whisky or beer depending on the offer. You can ask in dodgy restaurants, they often have bottles of whisky for sale and you have to take them with you before selling them in the back room. There are some very good restaurants and bars in the city with good prices, beer will set you back around US $6.00.
Novotel Tfeila and Hotel Mercure set the standard for a great stay, other mid-range hotels include the Royal Hotel, the Ritz-Carlton Hotel and the Grand Hotel. European rates, you pay about US $5.00 per night for the hotel room and about $3.50 per day for food and drink.
