As the name mentions, this is a palace yes, but a palace from forty years ago. Nothing as changed since that time excelt probably the elevators that have been renovated. Everything is old from the carpet to the gym. The breakfast is good and the staff are friendly but it doesn't make up for the age of the hotel and...

Sometimes, I am shocked by some of the negative reviews I read here. My experience at the King Fahd in late July/early August 2016 was positive from start to finish! No problem with early check-in, spotlessly clean and very comfortable room (pool and seaview!), extremely helpful and friendly staff (reception, restaurant, on the floors, etc..), gorgeous garden setting, strong wi-fi...

Staff at the hotel typify friendly, very helpful Senegalese. Breakfast was definitely worthwhile, and diverse with a good array of seasonal fruit The hotel is well positioned as fairly close to the airport and in walking distance of the monument (should you wish to go by foot - about an hour at a good pace). Some seaside restaurants and a...

​I had the unfortunate opportunity to stay at this hotel for 18 days in July 2016. This place claims to be a 4 star hotel but in reality is barely a 2 star. If you are American you can equate this to the 2 star Day's Inn highway-adjacent hotels. Here's my observations based on 18 days in this terrible place:...

I visit this place for the last 16 years and it is not getting any better. It should! Best location, great ocean exposure and well trained people, Guess Management can be improved a bit. Infrastructure is not well maintained and you notice it at every corner..employees are not happy and you hear it everywhere.. It is still the best place...

I spent a night here. We had a prior booking, but on arrival the rooms were not ready. I had to wait from 6pm in the evening to about 10pm in the night for a room to be available. Eventually I got a room. It was spacious and had a good view of the hotel grounds. Breakfast was good.

I participated to a big and exquisite event reception. Impressed by the architecture and how big is it the complex. The food was very good as well the service. The people are so kind and helpful. A little bit old as style, will need soon a refurbishment.

Good location on the coast with clean rooms and friendly staff. The complex and rooms are somewhat run down and tired looking, but still clean. Walkable distance to some restaurants with a good breakfast buffet. Rooms are good size with plenty of room. Air conditioning keeps the room comfortable. Ordered room service one night and got the pizza. Arrived within...
