“Discover Senegal’s vibrant beauty in this modern Dakar hotel and enjoy fine dining. Upscale amenities for business and wellbeing, including a fitness centre and a Spa.” – Radisson Blu Dakar
Nice hotel. They had a really nice open air live band playing downstairs by the pool the night my friends and I visited for dinner. The relaxed ambience was really popular with guests. I enjoyed it.
I'm not sure I can say the same for dinner though. After we left the pool area and went indoors for dinner, it seemed as if the mosquitoes tripled inside. Hey, I know it's Africa and it's night, but I wonder if anything can be done about this? Is there some kind of mosquito repellent gadget that can be deployed indoors to drive those annoying insects away?
Also, the food took about two hours to get ready. That wasn't nice. We were hungry as hell. I don't really blame the hotel staff though. We were like eight on our team and we got to the hotel at about 8pm. We placed different orders and when our orders came, everything was all mixed up. The waiter seemed to be overwhelmed, especially with the language barrier. It's a French-speaking country and the waiter's English wasn't great. Our French was poor too, so, it took everyone some time to sort things out.
I didn't stay over at the hotel so I can't comment on their rooms. My friends did though and they didn't have any complaints.
In the picture below, I'm the one in the blue suit.
Nice hotel, a bit on the pricey side for Senegal compared to the amenities there. Connected to the mall so convenient in that way. They also don't do a good job keeping up with pool charges to the room, someone tried to scam us. Thank goodness I took a photo of the receipt for what we did order.
The location was excellent, the food was good and breakfast staff were very efficient. Service at dinner was poor. The upkeep of the rooms needs attention. The bathrooms are old, the shower had no hot water and the bath was mouldy. Management is disinterested to complaints. The hotel is extremely expensive and not worth the price.
I really enjoyed my first time in Dakar.
I attended AORTIC 2023
Stayed at Radisson
Check in - 5⭐- swift and easy staff is very welcoming and warm hearted
Rooms 5⭐- Spacious with good room. Bedsheets crispy white and clean/soft
Rain Shower is great
Safe works well
My room was missing the iron box and was facing the beach so lots of noises from bar and club. But I didn't mind.
They had a coffee station - great espresso
Good room service
Great access to mall
Spa was 1000% - Great massage, jacuzzi etc
I never used the main pool but it seemed legendary.
The most memorable for me was the breakfast Omlette. That was my steal. Greatest omelette ever 🍳
This hotel is a 5 star experience. The staff are very professional and friendly. The only reason that my room gets 4 stars is because I was supposed to have a garden view, but all I could see was a roof full of solar panels. Perhaps it is a solar panel garden. Everything else was beyond expectations.
