You first drive accross downtown Kaolack and then between a long line of overloaded trucks queuing to unload their peanuts at the port, and then , when you think you will sleep at a sailor's motel or something similar, you find yourself in a very nice garden with ample rooms, a swimming pool with an open air bar and a...

I stayed overnight. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and took my luggage to my room. The room overlooked the river. The bed was comfortable and clean and all the facilities were working. The evening meal was well above average and the continental breakfast was adequate, Bear in mind the staff live at home in very poor conditions so... More

Much larger than the Relais in Tamba. Nice pool, bar, restaurant, decent menu. Clean rooms with wifi. A bit difficult to find in the dark - head to the water on the south side of town. Not much in Kaolack - we stayed there on the way to Mbour.

We stayed two nights at the Relais in Kaolack. Friends said it is the best in town and I would guess they're right. The rooms have AC, although it was broken in our first room so they switched us to another room where it was working. The wifi is very good. The sitting area near the river is a nice... More

We are living in Kaolack for some month and ate there a lot of times. The service is nice and friendly. The meals are very expensive and the quality can be valued as medium quality. But today we got to know the manager. He is an absolute unfriendly guy and not customer-oriented. Now, we decided to stop eating there because... More

Obviously you're in Africa so this is not a 5 star hotel by European/American standards. However, it is clean, air-conditioned, the staff is super friendly/helpful, there is food/drinks and a nice pool. The beds were comfortable. It was quiet. We felt like the staff went out of their way to be helpful. If you're going through Kaolack and need a... More

I had two separate stays at the Relais in May--one of two nights, another of one. The room was simple (no clock), but spotless. No mosquito net, but I saw no mosquitoes. Toilet was new, in a spotlessly clean bathroom. Plenty of hot water. Smallest bar of soap I've ever encountered, but there were two of them. A/c worked. Food... More

Let's be honest, Kaolack is not a tourist destination per se, more a stop on the way to Casamance or Niokolo-Koba. Keeping that in mind, and the fact that the city has little to offer in manners of alternative places, Le Relais is a perfectly nice place to chill out, with a great view. The rooms are clean and quite... More

Really nice pool and bar area, great for chilling out in the hot sun away from the hustle and bustle of the town. The rooms are fine, the breakfast is poor but the evening food was nice. Staff a mixture of friendly and incompetent.
