Some faults. Expensive.

Posted Apr 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
Even in expensive Dakar you expect a bit more for the money. Great architecture, but already poorly maintained and some housekeeping deficiencies. Ocean setting is great, but it's a long way from town. If you've come to see Dakar you'll be disappointed. If you want to drink pricey cocktails beside the pool you will be happy. It is twice the price of the Pullman Teranga but nowhere near twice as good. Breakfast is seriously overpriced.

Very nice staff

Ocean view not as expected, internet connect was poor and down most of my stay, most staff was very friendly. Breakfast being included in my price was a problem, had to go back to registration desk once too often. Manager finally asked for copy, good think I printed it before I left home. Bathtub was about 3 to 4 feet up, some people may need a ladder to get into tub/shower. Breakfast was good served by friendly staff.

Very decent hotel, excellent service

Posted Oct 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
When you land at 2am, it's a relief to see a driver with your name on a piece of paper. Got to the hotel quickly and checked in. They didn't have any standard rooms left, so we were upgraded to a gorgeous suite. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay. Will book at the Radisson Blu again.

Good staff.

Posted Jun 11, 2012
Pros: The pool
Location: Excellent location in the Corniche
Staff was very helpful, and all spoke fair English which is rare in Dakar. The reception staff was excellent. I had two different reservations, and the reception staff made sure that I stayed in the same room and made the transition hassle-free for me.

Good Hotel

Posted May 15, 2012
I was thoroughly impressed with the Hotel. It's always easy to find something to grumble about, in this case the room allocated was not what was booked, but other than that the service was good, all staff spoke good English. The restaurants were excellent - the fine dining experience with fresh fish from the display, to the thin crust Pizza's at the bar. Great location too.

This was my first trip to Africa and this hotel made us feel if if we were home. The reception staff met us at the door with warm smiles and professionalism.

Dakar à la Corniche

Posted Dec 24, 2011
Pros: Great food, beautiful grounds and view.
Cons: The bed, in an attempt to be plump, was a bit mushy.
Location: Excellent.
Absolutely great in every respect. Would have enjoyed a firmer bed, though.
