This was our 10th visit to the Gambia and our 3rd visit to Sardinka. Each time we never fail to be impressed. Its the small things that make this place. Like the hosts friendliness, taking you on days out, the honesty bar, the shared mealtimes on the patio for new guests to name but a few. Nothing is too much... More

Well, Roy and Lorraine I promised I'd leave an honest review and here it is Firstly its position, absolutely perfect halfway between the strip and turntable so a 8 Dalasi taxi (65 to the pound) takes you to either, However its within walking distance to some fantastic restaurants (recommend Kassumai) and some of the best and quietest beaches in Gambia....

Sardinka is my first choice for place to stay in The Gambia. Hosts are great people, swimming pool is awesome, rooms are clean and comfortable and security is tight. Me and my little family always feel welcome.

My girlfriend and me (Miren and Mikel) went to Gambia on August, in rainy season. We couldn't imagine that this place would become our "home" in Gambia. We booked the first 4 days and after these 4 days, we finally stayed in Sardinka for our whole trip of 2 weeks! Why? Because though we wanted to feel some "local experience"... More

It was a first time trip to the Gambia for us. We did not want to stay in a hotel as they are the same around the world. This little gem of a place was just the perfect in between place to stay. We felt secure yet got to see the beautiful country and its smiling friendly people. Roy and... More

My gf and I stayed here last February (my apologies for the very late review which I meant to put up when I got home). Despite probably being a little younger than most guests we were given a very warm welcome and felt comfortable from the moment we arrived. Lovely home from home atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble for... More

Been back just over a week and I'm missing this place big time! Chose Sardinka because it was self catering and in an area of TG that I hadn't explored before and I was not disappointed. I was met at the airport by their driver Ebu and was immediately made to feel welcome on arrival by Roy and Lorraine who... More
