Can I start by saying although I have rated this full marks if you expect 5 star accommodation then The Gambia probably isn't for you. After speaking to fellow tourists the majority of hotels in this area are of a similar standard and although lovely are very different from European or more developed tourist spots in Africa. I loved my... More

We have just got back from a 10 day break at this hotel. Room was a good size, but bathroom could do with updating. There seemed to have been a shortage of bath towels, we had to use our beach towels as no towels were delivered for 36 hours. Taxi driver Robert outside the hotel, what a great guy, he... More

All the staff at this hotel are marvelous and do an excellent job. Always plenty of sunbeds on the beach and around the pool, no having to get up early to reserve... More

Stayed during half term February 2014. Good staff team, clean environment and fantastic breakfast. Stayed in a room but changed to villa 9 after expressing dissatisfaction with room 1136. Room 1136 was very big but prefer the villa as more spacious and better looking than the room. Had problems with safe several times due to our mistakes but staff never... More

I WOULD GIVE A 3 1/2 STAR RATHER THAN 4. Hotel and grounds clean and tidy. Gardens kept neat and produce grown used in hotel. Pool and beach cleaned daily to a high standard. Rooms - These are of a good size although the bathroom could have had a better layout, Plenty of wardrobe space but could have done with... More

Bear in mind that The Gambia is a very poor country, and you will realise that for the price this is a great hotel. If you want 5-star go elsewhere, but this place has charm, adequate facilities, is spotlessly clean, and has wonderful staff that can't do enough for you. OK, so there were issues with the room, eg the... More
