When we came to the Gambia, we were flabbergasted about the poverty. The resort is very nice, but be aware: They stole more than €150 from us (we didn't care so much because the people here are working so hard but it isn't the way it should be going). The only reason I would go back to this resort is... More

Absolutely heartbreaking to see this hotel close so early in the season, on 17 November 2014, resulting in us having to relocate to another hotel two days before the end of our holiday. The hotel closed apparently due to the Dutch travel company who had the majority of bookings in the hotel pulling out. If you are booked to stay... More

Having visitedThe Gambia 19 years I can honestly say this Sunswing Beach Resort Hotel is the worst we have ever stayed in. Unable to shower for 3 days, no soap bath towels or plug for wash basin. Two ceiling fans that did not work nothing to cater with and dirty over all. We were moved toVilla 3 after4 days and... More

This was a great hotel situated right on the beach, staff couldn't have been better. Wifi slightly intermittent, good at poolside and reception. Fruit seller Ndey adjacent (stall no3) does amazing fruit platters, her peanut cookies are to die for!

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
