Stayed 3 nights with a friend. We get into the comfortzone after travelling trough Senegal. This hotel was very luxery with good prices! Excellent diner, good bar! Service could be better but if you can eat every meal outside on a romantic terrace you woulndt complain about that! Nice pool, clean rooms with hot water (!), near to the center.

Having traveled for about 5 hours from Dakar on our way for some businesses in Sokone, we decided to use Kaolack as a mid-stop point. This hotel not only met our needs but service was very nice. The rooms were impeccably clean and we'll kept. I loved how the swimming pool overlooks the lake/river. The staff were very nice, particularly... More

Not being able to find anywhere else in Kaolack we ended up at this great place. Big clean pool, nice staff, good rooms and really good food. We were 3 people and payed 40.000CFA. Its 1 km from the city center but by the water.

I stayed at Le Relais for 2 weeks for a business trip. The room: the rooms are furnished very basically--small table/desk, wooden chair, bed with built in side shelves, mounted wall TV (which has about 10 channels, including France 24 and CNN in English). The bathroom was surprisingly nice, good tiled stand-up shower, nice water pressure, 2 tiny bars of... More

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

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
