Recently I ended up experiencing an extended stay at the Radisson Blu in Dakar and from my time there I felt it best to share my thoughts. Of all the hotels in Dakar, I would highly rate the Radisson as one of the best. From the beginning of my stay the hotel staff were extremely hospitable, courteous and thoughtful -... 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

I recently had a long term business stay at the Radisson Blu Hotel. I found the staff and service to be excellent. The large infinity pool and poolside bar is the showcase with a beautiful view of the Atlantic. The gym was very clean, all cardio machines worked including five heavy duty treadmills. There is a spa; the service was... More

Checkin took over 25 minutes. Mosquitoes in room. Broken coffee maker and balcony door. Gorgeous setting with with infinity pool and bar. Good food -- especially deserts. Far from anything if you want to do anything fun in the evenings. A lot money relative to what it delivers.

I love the location, service, comfort of the rooms. The rooms are always clean, functional and spacious. I always got the ones overlooking the pool. On week ends the pool is noisy but the windows are very good when closed.

The hotel is right on La Corniche, the main coastal road that heads north of Dakar, with a stunning view on the sunset on the Atlantic. An amazing pool overlooks the sea surrounded by a bar, a grill and a restaurant, all sharing the same magical view. All common parts are decorated in modern style with great taste. The rooms... More

I stayed twice in this hotel for short business trips and always enjoyed it, taking a swim in the early morning facing the sea is absolutely awesome. The staff is really nice and helpful. The restaurant is also nice with great food and relatively quick service. All together one of my favourite business destination

Stayed here for three nights in May on business. Check in was friendly and efficient. Room was spotless and the bed was comfortable.
