Great modern design, unfortunate the wind facing position makes it a bit uncomfortable for evening drinks out ( winter time) . Great Gym, food good but can be pricy ( ask for the price of special dishes before ordering) and accessibility of the hotel along the new roads is a big advantage. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. Staff courteous,... More

Excellent hotel with amazing location, exceptional service. Courteous employees, variety of food choices. Hotel exceeds expectations....really scenic while you sip a cocktail and watch the dolphins...feels like you are in a sanctuary. Sea plaza is a great location and in close proximity to other areas. Hotel even has the mall attached to it for all the shopaholics

We stayed in Radisson Blu for a weekend. The rooms and service are good (do not live up to a 5 star standard, but take into account that you're still in a country with lot of limitations), food is excelent, the pool is magnificent and has an excelent bar. Good option, but pricey one.

A nice Hotel compared to other Hotels in Dakar. Rooms are comfortable and you get a goods night sleep. The housekeeping department needs to start looking after the rooms as the grouting on the marble in the shower are showing signs of mould growth. Breakfast is quite good and a good selection of fresh fruits and cereals are available together... More

This well situated hotel, close to but not caught up in the (much cleaned-up) downtown zone of the city is attractively located on the sea. Rooms provide everything one might hope for - hot water, modern amenities, a good range of TV channels. The staff is helpful and the breakfast excellent. As well, the hotel pool is an attractive one.... More

I stayed at the Radisson Blu for two weeks while on business. My first time in Africa, it went beyond my expectations. It was great to be able to relax by the pool after a long day of meetings - especially when there was live music nightly. Yes, it is a little pricey, but the hotel caters to Westerners and... More

This is not a Four Seasons hotel, so don't expect it to be. What this is is a very good hotel, located in Dakar, Senegal.

This is the third time I am staying at the Radisson Blu, more of custom then choice. The pool is not clean (algae), food and beverage is completely overpriced, and I was picked up from the airport one hour late an experienced erratic internet access during my stay. Also, be aware that the breakfast is 30 USD.

I was very happy at the Radisson Blu where I staid for six nights, the first four of which on business. The service was friendly and responsive, if at times a bit slow, especially in the terrace bar. Breakfast left nothing to be desired as far as I am concerned, including decent espresso to get the day started. I had... More
