Veeeery old Rooms smell bad, have lots of mould and the A/C is really loud. Breakfast is basic stuff, service is terrible, no one cleans tables, you have to fetch cutlery and cups from other tables and go to the waiters station to get your own coffee. Absolutely terrible. I really have no idea how this is supposed to be...

The staff were friendly. The breakfast buffet was adequate, with a good variety of choices. The outdoor pool was pleasant. The Jardins de l'Ocean Restaurant had a good variety and the food was tasty. That is about the extent of the pros. The rooms are "tired" and in desperate need of an update. The HVAC system puts out moist, musty...

The location is ok, many restaurants close by and the ocean as well. The pool is big and modern, clean and entertaining. The room is not that big but has a balcony 😍 The building itself is quite old which unfortunately leaves a bad smell in the room. Overall, it s a good hotel and the pizza i had by...

On a business trip i stayed quiet long in it and it does need to be refreshed. They have already started but since it is a very big hotel and it will take long and the refurbished rooms are often the first to be taken. Security is very good and the land is huge, it also located next to a...

Stayed at King Fahd Palace for 3 nights. Very large hotel but looks a bit old and tired hotel. It has very nice comfortable rooms. Had a room overlooking the ocean. Excellent service. Large selection of items for breakfast. Spa service very good. Pleasant staff

Hotel needs to update the rooms. For example change out carpet, bathroom faucet fixtures are old and poorly maintained. They claim to provide free wi-fi but you might as well not have it. It streams very poorly and when I brought it to their attention they said that is the best we can do. On a positive note the pool...

I'm sure the staff here are used to dealing with a million complaints so immediately if you have the slightest insignificant issue their defences go up and they over complicate the issue and don't give you the simple answer you asked them for. Its very old and outdated and carpets throughout. There's no slippers in the rooms so if you...

I've seen a lot of negative reviews on the King Fahd Palace about how old and poorly maintained it is. Sure, the rooms could use some renovations but I found my stay at the hotel a pleasant one. The hotel offers free airport pickup which is convenient. The staff were very friendly helping us out with directions to downtown and...

Grand lobby and public areas. Rather shabby but adequate rooms. Amazing views of the Atlantic in a safe, walkable part of far northern Dakar. Decent gym. Don't expect grandeur in the sense you might in the U.S., the Far East, or Europe. This place is fine if you are used to traveling in the region.
