This is a luxury hotel and was great for a business trip, but then it should be at those Prices. Loved Dakar, loved the visit and loved the Hotel, would certainly stay there again as long as the company picks up the tab! Fast Wifi, spacious rooms, good food, clean modern and comfortable

I have stayed at the Radisson Blu in Dakar on several occasions for business but would definitely choose it for vacations as well. I love the hotel. The setting is peaceful -- an oasis amid the hubbub of Dakar. The food is great, and the management is visible, attentive and responsive. The rooms facing the ocean are superb. And if... More

I stayed at this beauriful hotel from the 8-12 June 2014 and truly enjoyed my stay. The check in was seamlessly quick as I arrived at 3am and was quickly whisked away into my room. The room was clean and provided all basic necessities. My biggest discomfort was the bed......every motion resulted in irritating noise and it didn't matter which... More

I stayed at this hotel during July 2014 on business trip. I have stayed in other Radisson hotels. The hotel is within good proximity to airport and has a great west facing view over an infinity pool and the ocean.

What a gorgeous, gorgeous hotel. It is quite unique because you come in off the street and actually go down to get to the rooms. It's built into the side of a hill! I stayed here twice, for two nights each. Check-in was fine, although slow. One of the times, they couldn't get the connection to run the credit card... More
