This was our first visit to the Gambia and we stayed at Alla La Daaro for the first three nights of our trip. Meg the owner was very helpful with e-mails prior to our holiday, and made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. As other reviewers have said, the accommodation is quite basic, but it is spotless.... More

I travelled in Feb 2012 with 4 friends. We wanted to do some voluntary work and see the real Gambia, so this was an ideal base for us. The lady who owns the B&B, Meg, was very friendly and we exchanged several emails leading up to our trip. She and her able workers (Sam, Galaxy and Njie) organised so much... More

If you are looking for a quiet, simple experience of african village life with some western comforts thrown in, this is ideal. We always stay in the... More

Words fail me, never a good start to a review but when it comes alla la daroo I can’t adequately describe the awfulness this place. I would say it has to be seen to be believed. But I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. Firstly this guesthouse is listed as being in Brikama. It is a good 20 minute taxi drive... More
