The environment is clean, with a great view of the sea. Just make sure to ask for the 5th or 6th floor left wing. It has a great sit out to relax and enjoy the cool sea breeze in the evenings. It is within walking distance of so many great supermarkets and restaurants especially the sea side canteens with different... More

Changing the room here is like splitting the atom. They say many illogical reasons not to do whatever you asked for. Rooms are old and no duvets but blankets covered with a lienen and inside comes out during sleeping. Blankets are also pretty old and seem dirty. No complientary water in the room as opposed to that they promised. Only... More

As the name mentions, this is a palace yes, but a palace from forty years ago. Nothing as changed since that time excelt probably the elevators that have been renovated. Everything is old from the carpet to the gym. The breakfast is good and the staff are friendly but it doesn't make up for the age of the hotel and... More

Sometimes, I am shocked by some of the negative reviews I read here. My experience at the King Fahd in late July/early August 2016 was positive from start to finish! No problem with early check-in, spotlessly clean and very comfortable room (pool and seaview!), extremely helpful and friendly staff (reception, restaurant, on the floors, etc..), gorgeous garden setting, strong wi-fi...

Staff at the hotel typify friendly, very helpful Senegalese. Breakfast was definitely worthwhile, and diverse with a good array of seasonal fruit The hotel is well positioned as fairly close to the airport and in walking distance of the monument (should you wish to go by foot - about an hour at a good pace). Some seaside restaurants and a... More

​I had the unfortunate opportunity to stay at this hotel for 18 days in July 2016. This place claims to be a 4 star hotel but in reality is barely a 2 star. If you are American you can equate this to the 2 star Day's Inn highway-adjacent hotels. Here's my observations based on 18 days in this terrible place:... More

I visit this place for the last 16 years and it is not getting any better. It should! Best location, great ocean exposure and well trained people, Guess Management can be improved a bit. Infrastructure is not well maintained and you notice it at every corner..employees are not happy and you hear it everywhere.. It is still the best place... More
