The Holiday Beach Club in the Gambia is located just a few minutes from the strip. The location is excellent as it is very central but also provides you with a getaway with superb views of the gardens. The breakfast is basic, consisting of bread, jam, cheese, juice however you can order eggs etc for a small price. The rooms... More

I have stayed here more than 10 times. Nothing has changed much - particularly the breakfast! It is great for me because I love luncheon meat and bread!!!!!!!!!!!!! In 7 nights - 14 showers - I would say I had 2 that came close to a shower - the rest was just a trickle. Having said all this, the position... More

We would stay there again even though basic it was comfortable and very clean for a very poor country it was a nice relaxing hotel that made you feel welcome when every member of staff spoke to you every time they walked passed you. My only gripe would be the cleaner, although did a fabulous job that I can't fault,... More

The only reason this hotel gets a three star is that the STAFF IS INCREDIBLE! They actually care for your well-being. I was a woman traveling alone and some of the staff even accompanied me to shops and banks to make sure I didn't feel unsafe. When I tried to tip them they even declined. Other than the staff, I...

We chose HBC aware of the basic facilities and repetitive breakfast, which would've been adequate for our needs if not for the rather basic issues: *miserable restaurant & unhelpful reception staff (the maintenance guys were friendly, even if some were simply trying to sell their tour guiding services) It was a chore to order anything from the beach bar, which...

This was my first visit to The Gambia. I went with my mum who has been coming to stay at the holiday beach club for the past 8 yrs with my dad who sadly passed away last year. Within half hour of arriving I fell in love with this place, the welcome me and mum got from the staff was... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks in mid February and chose this hotel because of its location, just off The Strip, as in the past it has cost a small fortune in taxis fares to The Strip. We expected a reasonably peaceful stay, but hadn't bargained on the 50th Independance Day celebrations, and unfortunately had 3 nights when the loud... More
