Ok, It's clearly an elegant hotel, one of the finest in Dakar. The grounds are impressive with wonderful modern artwork, a great infity pool with a view of the sea, and the staff is very nice. We also liked it that locals are welcome and plentiful. My only suggestion is to do something about the food. For breakfast at least, if you don't want the $66USD buffet, the a la carte food takes a long time (though some of it is clearly coming from the buffet), is cold, and poor quality with undercooked eggs, "chicken sausage" that is like hotdogs, etc. I also would be used to a "concierge" who could help at a hotel like this, but perhaps that is not typical in Senegal.

Wasn’t nice like the Radisson Blu I stayed at in Kenya. Expected more for a 5 star hotel. Food was ok for dinner buffet, but it was the same every night. The restaurant at the pool was a lil better. The flies are all over Dakar, but the hotel didn’t have any measures in place for them. That was a big problem. The pool was nice. They have construction going on at the hotel, and if I knew I wouldn’t have stayed there. Over all it was ok but not worth the price tag. The beach is down the street and not right in the property, but you can see it from a distance.

Great food, great view, comfortable bed.

I stay in a lot of hotels, and my travel is for business. I have traveled a lot in Africa and the developing world, so i'm not spoiled, though. this is an expensive hotel and part of a good chain, I would expect excellent, friendly service. I found that it was simply impossible to get the attention of waiters or the people at the bar. the servers would stand around in groups and chat with their backs to the customers, and if you didn't stand up and walk over and tap somebody on the back, you couldn't get service. now, if I was there for a week vacation and I wasn't in a hurry about anything then that isn't a problem. when you are trying to get stuff done it is. I also had some bug experiences - not horrible but again for the price I paid I would expect better. I had ants on my plate in the restaurant and when I pointed it out to the hostess she shrugged and gave me anew plate.
