I booked in this hotel with a Gambian man through an English Tour Operator and had too much hassle, so don't book here if you want a peaceful time with a Gambian, as they do not like it. Also the power is off far too much and only had hot water 4 days out of 14, after asking for it... More

Difficult to review this hotel as it had so many good points but quite a lot of things going against it. As a solo traveller I arrived with my driver/guide in tow who wanted to make sure everything was ok before he left me. I was shown to the dingiest darkest room imaginable with no outside space. The door opened... More

Second visit to Gambia, and couldn't fault our stay here. The staff were all so friendly & wanted to make your holiday enjoyable! A smaller hotel and only a 5 minute walk from the beach & the main strip where there are lots of restaurants & bars. We had meals in the hotel several times in the evenings and good... More

As a seasoned visitor to Gambia for the last 20 years I have been accustomed to highs and lows and always expect the unexpected but Seaview Gardens certainly was a new low. My 2 friends and I had booked into a lovely hotel called Bamboo Gardens which we stayed at last year but upon arrival on 1st Dec this year,... More

I had a fantastic experience at this hotel for my first visit in The Gambia (and Africa). As I must admit I was a little worried as what to expect. But let me emphasise that there is NO Ebola here! The hotel was very clean and the staff were the friendliest people I've ever met. The accommodation was great, we... More
