After a horrible year i needed a break away from everything. I searched for a quality hotel and so happy i chose Ocean Bay. I had a premier delux suite ans was treated like a princess. The gardeners gave me flowers, the cleaner could not do enough for me even sprinkling flowers on my bed and spending an hour with... More

MY first review of the Ocean Bay was about five years ago where I said good but could be better I have now been around six times and every year it does get better, the new owners have spent a lot of money and it shows, though the bedrooms still need improvement ( I believe that is happening this year...

This is our first visit to Ocean Bay as our original choice of hotel was unavailable. The rooms are mainly of a decent quality although the bathrooms leave a lot to be desired, very much in need of refurbishment, and no bath unless a suite is booked. There seems to be a major problem with the room keycard system as... More

We returned last Monday(13th April) and highly recommend this hotel, the staff, gardens, pool and surrounds are excellent. vast beach, sea is shallow with no drop offs. even the beach life guard is vigilant and friendly. There are juice boys, they serve you a lovely freshly made juice for 75dalasi ( £1). The fruit ladies are lovely and provide small... More

I first stayed at the Ocean Bay in 2010, which was my first visit to The Gambia. If I hadn't enjoyed the hotel, it is unlikely that I would have returned. We came back this year mainly because of price increases at The Kairaba which made it poor value and having read recent reviews, perhaps we were very fortunate to... More

Hotel has improved each year. New TVs in room (that's if you want to watch tv). Gardens are beautiful with some added wooden art and chairs. Reception has really been decorated well. Staff are still the loveliest happy to see you and help. Rooms still need more improvement especially bathrooms but will look forward to seeing what more has been... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Ocean Bay. Under staffed but lovely rooms and great sea view. You need a car to get into town as the choice of eating places there is good. Food in hotel very limited. We enjoyed sun bathing without the usual hotel crowds. Very easy going and friendly and we would go back. Watch out... More
