Nice room, hotel surroundings and spa area. Like one of the other reviewers mentioned, the temperature of the pool and steam room were not warm enough. The cool pool needs to be colder. I would certainly not pay to come use the spa wet room facilities. The spa reception and service were good - staff were present, attentive and had... More

The Rhino Resort is one of the best locations I have ever visited. It's a marvelous luxury hotel SPA with one of the best services. We just came back from a memorable vacation in Senegal. Without a doubt the best trip we made. The rooms are hard so nice that it almost defies any word. We specially loved the gardens... More

The property was incredible. This is one of the most beautiful resort in the World. The SPA area at the Rhino Resort was beautiful as well and the quality of the massages. More than expected. Rooms as expected, it was by far the nicest and most upscale of the accomodations on our trips around Africa. The food at the bambou... More

My wife and I spent a weekend at the Blue Rhino with our children to celebrate our anniversary. The hotel room was very nice, having a loft where our children were able to sleep. There’s also two pools you can swim in. The only issue we had was when we went to use the spa pool we were told our... More

The "real review" below is spot on in getting to how the Rhino is so "nearly there" as a luxury boutique spa. Hope management will see the constructive critique as a challenge to up their game authentically. If they spent as much time training for front-line staff service as on fake reviews, this unique place could be even better. We... More

This is a very nice, African style boutique property. It has beautiful grounds and room design. Lots of personality and unique design. Look around because it seems to be about half the price on a few websites and is not worth the high standard price. Spa is really nice and included with room. Main reasons I give four not five...

When we arrive at the hotel, the chek-in was so fast to do it an a worker showed us all the places of it! I can verify that the pics are real and the hotel is fabulous. It has pools, spa, restaurant, meeting rooms, terrace bar... All the accommodations of a real 5 star hotel. The sorroundings are really quiet... More

If you want to meet Africa, do not hesitate to visit this hotel. It's an authentic paradise, hidden in a fabulous country like Senegal. The hotel is fantastic and the hotel workers are very professional and nice, they treated us excellent! This resort is peaceful and quiet, the african style is mixed with asian details. Their rooma are so big... More

First time in Senegal and first time in Africa except Morocco (we visited Casablanca two years ago). We prepared this trip very carefully because we had the impression that Africa is a dangerous continent (or at least is what people tells you before going there). Tripadvisor helps us a lot in finding the right place and the right hotel and... More

I expected fireworks after reading the other reviews but have to admit, I was disappointed. The hotel is beautiful for sure but the water in the spa is not warm enough and the hot tubs/jacuzzis were all "out of order" during my stay. Additionally the spa staff are fairly rude - insisting to see that you're actually wearing a bathing... More
