We went there in December 2012 and had a lovely time. It's all very basic, but that doesn't matter, because the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They have a nice little pool, a money exchange, we rented bikes (which didn't work at first, but they went to great lengths to get them working), monkeys come and visit and it's... More

This is by far the best place that I have stayed in The Gambia and we will be staying here again in April. My children were enjoying the company of the friendly staff, who always had time and patience for them. The atmosphere was peaceful and relaxing yet close enough to the strip when you fancy something a bit livelier.... More

I spent two weeks there in Dec/Jan 2014 and I can truely recommend the place. It's quiet, friendly and clean. The room was big enough, with wardrobe, huge bed, fridge and a cabinet. The bed sheets were clean, colourful, changed regularly. The bathroom was small but very clean, with fresh towels, tones of paper and a welcome soap:) The restaurant... More

I've stayed at the Baobab over 20 times, with family, friends and groups of students from UK and Holland. It is always my first choice. Small and friendly, it doesn't have the facilites of larger hotels, but this is more than made up for by the peaceful, friendly atmosphere where the staff do everything they can to ensure that you...

Local, cosy, top quality food, service and entertainment. Very helpfull and friendly staff. From many places in the Gambia I have been this one is really the best ever. It not fra from the beach, the strip and all other places to be, wich makes it ideal for people who appreciate some rest.
