Our villa was great with fantastic views. This great experience started as soon as we checked in and continued every day from the reception staff to the waiters and... More

We visited this hotel at the end of the rainy season & no maintenance had been carried out at all outside. The grass was long & not cut plants were not trimmed & fallen palm fonds just stacked up on paths. They started to carry out tiling works around our pool, cutting tiles with an angle grinder (& no protected... More

This is an absolutely wonderful hotel in a beautiful setting. They have very friendly, helpful, and professional staff. The hotel is beautiful, well-maintained and well-done throughout. I was with three other young adults and we were happy with our entire experience except the food. It was inconsistent and while we enjoyed the breakfast and lunch fare three different days, the...

We couldnt have been happier. 200 dalasi (£3ish) allows access to the hotel which we thought was a bargain and wifi is included in that. The setting of the hotel... More

The place to be.... Has everything a 5 star needs but my problem was the live band entertainment on new year's Eve. Please get some good dancing entertainments like cabarets shows with dramas then later continue with live band and please I'll suggest you get an ANIMATION TEAM that's all you lack but apart from that its perfect I love...

Great resort, there are two restaurants; one 'french' and one Thai with an actual Thai chef. Personnel is friendly, rooms are beautiful, choice between three pools or the beach. The spa is amazing and affordable, had the best massage ever (an hour for € 20,-). Great holiday spot!

First of all, this hotel is by far the best you can find in The Gambia in terms of quality, cleanness, service, food and infrastructure. The beach and swimming pools are amazing and the staff will help you with any request you might have. But..because there is a but.. there is nothing around the hotel and therefore you need a...
