I stay there three or four times a year and I keep going. Very well located. Settings are great. Pool and gym top notch. Service is excellent. Food in the hotel restaurants is also very good, even though a bit expensive. The nearby commercial complex provides with options for meals and many services.

One tends to have some expectations from a hotel charging $350 a day. A 1$ water bottle is not provided in rooms except on day 1!! really?? Is it that much to expect? Location is wonderful but the keys will not work at all if there is a phone nearby. Irritating indeed. Transport needs to be paid directly to the... More

Dear Mcairae, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience at our hotel. We are very concerned to read about your disappointment. The tab water is treated and filtered, therefore potable, however a bottle of water is provided everyday in business class rooms for the nespresso machine. Taxis are not hotel’s properties, taxi charges cannot... More

On my second business trip to Dakar, I stayed 4 days at this hotel of good-to-great repute. It lives up to expectations. Gorgeous pool side bar & dining - perfect for the evenings.

Can't rave enough about this hotel. Rooms are spacious, very trendy. I loved the little assortment of nuts and pineapple chips that were in my room upon my arrival. The infinity pool is clean and overlooks the Atlantic ocean. Simply breathtaking. The breakfast is complimentary and a wide assortment of foods that will tantalize your taste buds. The staff is...

Hotel is on the beach, not far from main attractions and markets. Hotel staff are pleasant. Great breakfast buffet to start the day. Will definitely return again. Modern up to date, and excellent wifi.

We've never spent the night at the Radisson Blu (but the US President did last year) and have only enjoyed the pool and fancy dinners. We leave happy as this is a lovely hotel with good (but expensive) food and drink service.
