i have been to a handful of hotels in the Gambia, and this is to me one that offers greatest value for money. Location is superb, staff super friendly and a pretty decent breakfast. The rooms are clean and on day one they decorated the bed with flower petals. Nice detail! You pay double in other hotels to get the... More

Here now , for our third time. Everything as pleasing as before and they've cut the meal prices more in line with other bars and restaurants. Someone below posted an alarming report about the safes, so I wanted to reply that they are now key operated and nobody has had any problems during our stay.Many people are repeat guests which...

We had a great time here and would definitely return. Set at the southern end of Bijilo beach (about 30 mins walk along the beach from Senegambia, this is the place for quiet relaxation. The lovely gardens lead straight to the beach, where there are umbrellas and helpful staff with towels etc. What really sets this hotel apart from others... More

We stayed at the Lemon Creek Hotel Resort during Christmas and this was our first time in the Gambia. Overall I have to conclude that the staff is very friendly, always in for a chat. Christmas eve was celebrated with a buffet in the restaurant, which was very delicious. Rooms are clean and for sure some place to return another... More

Nicely situated low budget hotel, but watch your money, even when it is in the safe! Like manya v, also our (digit code, no key) safe was robbed. They took 850 euro from it. Nobody felt responsible, not even the hotel management. Next, we demonstrated to the manager that anybody can open any safe in the hotel in less than... More

With the new management something has changed at the Lemon Creek Hotel Resort...: - Now you can rent a car directly at the reception (better than calling a taxi or going by tour Providers on excursions) - You can pay with your VISA/Master-Card (instead of getting money from credit card at Hotel Senegambia und taking it to Lemon Creek) -...

There is nothing to say, only we are planing our next trip - back to Lemon Creek Resort. We feel in the middle of nature, like a camp in the dschungle, but by one step back in the civilisation. The good beer and excecially the african meals roundet our holidays at Lemon Creek.

We stayed here for three weeks. Good value for money, staff does everything for you upon request. My bag was stolen in Senegambia, Ismaeli Yasseh from the staff bought me a nice new backpack on his day off for only a few euro's! Breakfast was simple but good, eggs or crepes made upon request. When we made a trip to... More

Nice small hotel, beautifully situated on the beach, with very nice garden, worthless swimming pool, empty jacuzzi, very friendly staff, lousy breakfast buffet and much too expensive, and completely uncosy dinner restaurant, with nice food though. We complained about the blood stains on the sheets and the dirty toilet seat. We stayed for 10 days in March 2014, and the... More
