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. Unfortunately just between the pool and the sea seems to be a gravel access road and dolosse (large concrete blocks... More

When you arrive at the hotel, you know you made the right choice. The place is simply stunning to look at. Very sleek and modern, built on a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Their infinity pool has gorgeous views of the ocean. There is no beach at this hotel. The rooms are stylish and pleasant. Rooms facing the sea are... More

From the fantastic view in the lobby, to the great scene at the pool, to the people throughout the hotel….everything was beautiful. The staff was very accommodating. The hotel was truly more than I expected. Having a room with access to the garden is definitely a treat. The breakfast was very good as well. Overall, everyone was wonderful, however there... More

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

I have been traveling back and forth to Senegal for nearly 20 years and I have stayed in the Radisson Blu a few times over the past few years. I have seen the rise, reign, and eventual decline of several hotel properties in Senegal over this period. The Radisson Blu Dakar fills the gap in the market for those who... More

While the general aesthetic of the hotel remains lovely- well designed and beautifully decorated, the lack of proper maintenance and investment is starting to show and makes this hotel rather poor value for money. My bedroom window had a big crack across it that was covered in scotch tape and during the first 2 days of my week-long stay, I... More
