Not recommended
Worse experience. Very difficult to find the car entrance. It’s located in a truck saturated area and the road conditions are very bad. The rooms are dirty; There were cigarettes tray with strong cigarette odor in the room I was in. I also found used towels that were not changed which made me wonder if they really clean them after clients. The si called “free wifi” is useless. It never worked for me.

Tranquillity found amongst the city chaos
I absolutely loved my three night stay at Hotel Voile d'Or. I know it's not getting good reviews, but I have to disagree. True, it's in a very industrial part of Dakar--doesn't get any more congested or polluted than around the shipping port!--but the hotel was lovely and the beach was one of the cleanest I've seen in West Africa. Also great for swimming. The hotel is secluded and quiet; the rooms are spacious, clean, and nicely furnished, and the staff were very kind and helpful. There are restaurants very close by if you simply know where to look. Yes, taxis are needed to access other areas of the city, but that's a small price to pay for the tranquillity this hotel offers. I would definitely stay again.

6/10 Good

Beach front location but nothing else
The only positive is the beach front location. Otherwise hotel is in a container port area with congested roads and big trucks into / out of the street. I changed rooms twice bc first room has no internet signal and second has no toilet seat but lots of mosquitos. Overall needs lots of repair and maintenance: almost all towel racks and hooks are broken, shattered or missing glass tops on furniture, toilet smells like sewer. I took the half board option: dinner is quite good but breakfast is only bread. Lady receptionist speaks not a word of English. Male receptionist is quite helpful. Nothing within walking distance: no restaurants!

Great beach but rooms are awful!
The beach was fabulous, unlike those on the rough west coast and the beach bar very good. The accommodation needs some serious maintenance. there was no safe in the room, nor coffee making facilities, despite being in my confirmation. It took two room changes to get the sort of room I had reserved, even though I was almost the only guest! I only had hot water two of the five days I was there. One day there was no water at all from the shower. Half the lights did not work. those that did mostly had bare bulbs. Only one aircon unit worked the first night. There were no toiletries, as in my confirmation, just one of those tiny hotel soaps. There is nothing in the vicinity and I would not fancy walking outside for the most part. You are straight into the port area, heavily industrial and very run down. Wifi only worked in the bar and reception and was not strong enough to even run outlook on my laptop.

Vétuste !
Les cabanes en bois sont vétustes et sales ( Cafards ) Les lits bancales, la sale de bain vieille, et la porte fermait mal... Rien à voir avec les photos ( Ce devait être une chambre dans un bâtiment en dur, pas une cabane de jardin )
