Always apprehensive on a first visit,but Sardinka lived up to its reputation and then some.! Ebu,a local driver waiting for us in arrivals, had us there in 30 minutes where Roy and Lorraine had waited up to welcome us with a cold Julbrew and show us to our apartment where water, tea,coffee, milk eggs and cheese etc had thoughtfully been...

I've waxed lyrical about the Sardinka a few times now but had to just write again as there have been so many improvements since our last visit. The pool and bar areas have been extended, there is a beautiful new bentaba and quiet area to have a nightcap and all the apartments/studios have been improved. This place feels like a... More

Stayed this time for Xmas and new year. Roy and Lorraine did Xmas breakfast and dinner which was fantastic. We stayed in the 3 bed room which had lots of space, balconeys and everything that was needed. Children came by daily asking for "sweetie or minties" so have a bag to hand but was lovely to see their smiling faces.... More

I would thoroughly recommend Sardinka as a lovey relaxing place to stay. Lovely accomodation with a nice garden area with pool and "honesty" bar.Easy access to local beaches, restaurants and local transport.Peaceful setting but Senegambia area just a short car ride away.Roy and Lorraine are perfect hosts.Hope to return next year.

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
