Very nice hotel with amazing view on the ocean. Nice and clean rooms - Good service generally. Avoid rooms in the first floor as they are too close to the terasse where there is a live band playing every night. Better take room in the 3rd floor. The hotel experiences some very short electricity shortages from time to time.

We do apologize for the inconvenience that might have caused you. We thank you for the compliments over the cleanliness of our guest rooms and the good service. We look forward to welcoming you...

This is a very new and modern hotel, room was excellent, spacious, clean, nice view, and the room had all one needs.

If you are important and/or beautiful (I am neither) and in Dakar, this is your place. Situated on the ocean with an awesome infinity pool, the views and serenity are special. In a noisy, fume-filled African metropolis like Dakar, the Radisson Blu is like an oasis. Sparking clean and friendly attentive staff. Definitely very expensive and definitely tight security but...

Big clean rooms with free wifi. Great looking infinity pool, with poolside bar. Quiet and safe. Breakfast and Dinner were very good, with open air eating available. However, service was very slow one night.

Because of work, I have stayed at the Radisson Blu in Dakar multiple times. It is in a great location and overall is a very nice property. My complaint relates primarily to some employees at the establishment. Breakfast is advertised as beginning at 6:30 AM, but it is rare for the dining area to be set-up on time with all... More

When I come back to Dakar again, I shall probably stay in this hotel, but somewhat reluctantly. Reception staff were in general unfriendly and very slow. Access to the balcony was blocked which nobody wanted a to talk about. I can't understand why the hotel didn't make some sort of gesture upfront as an apology. The room was already very... More

Whenever I write reviews I try to take the local context into perspective: five stars in Harare may not mean the same thing as five stars in Singapore. So I'm writing the below bearing that in mind.
