We were here for a spa day only. Apart from the very miserable spa receptionist the spa was fantastic and so was the restaurant. The spa is new and when we were there late in the after noon very quiet. Massage was great. Good value spa and dinner package for 120 euros for 2 people well worth it. Restaurant was... More

We spent 5 nights at The Rhino Resort. We love exotic places and we decided to move to Africa to explore a new continent for us. Before traveling we always take a look at Tripadvisor reviews because we want to be sure where we stay. We like to read what travelers write and to take a look at the photos... More

First time in Africa and we came back surprised about the quality of this property in the middle of Saly. We checked many times the pictures in Tripadvisor, we read the experiences of other guests, but the Rhino Resort is more than expected. From the front desk the staff was very quick and helpful.

We had reserved the Teranga suite. Although I expected our quarters to be a bit more spacious, the room itself was nice and clean. I would rate the hotel closer to 3 and half stars--definitely not 5 stars! There didn't seem to be sufficient investment in the hotel grounds. The walls looked like they could use a fresh coat of...

Rhino Resort is probably the most high-class one in Saly. The hotel layout is really amazing, rooms are beautiful and comfortable, the decor is tasteful. We had a problem with the internet connection and it has been promptly solved in less than five minutes. On the restaurant side, food is good but was not impressed with the service.

Insane high standing resort in Saly. Rooms were big and the staff was excellent. All services such as gym, swimming pool and spa (excellent!) were included in the price! Staff was excellent and the restaurant is awesome. Highly recommended!
