Just been to The Gambia. There is no Ebola! It is miles away. It's so sad to see the places empty when only have a six month season. Wonderful place do not b put off . Hotel was empty and the locals rely on us for a living. Please don't b afraid it is safe

One of the most discreet small hotels in Banjul at a very safe and peaceful location. One has the feeling of being home. The swimming pool opens to a large empty courtyard which ends at the flat pristine white sand beach front. The hallway, restaurant, living quarters and reception are all conveniently separate from the hotel rooms arranged on two... More

As a regular visitor to The Gambia during the European winter months, Dunes Hotel Kotu is a haven of peace and tranquillity. I am very lucky, as a non-resident, to be able to use the pool and swim there regularly. The gardens are lovely and peaceful, the staff are pleasant, friendly and helpful. There have been many staff changes during... More

We stayed in a Suite( D3) after reading previous reviews and we were not disappointed. We were able to walk out of its grounds straight onto a lovely sandy beach with... More

The staff is very friendly and especially Kabba has been a wonderful friend for me, my wife and last time my brother. I would recommend this place for all the people who... More

I stayed at Dunes with my Aunt, her dad and a friend. The other 3 have stayed there many times in the past so i was informed it was a good choice. Although it doesn't have all added extras like multiple pools, entertainment, fancy bars and shops etc it is a lovely place to stay and for people looking to... More

Dunes is a truly unique hotel in The Gambia, being set away from the 'main drag' it sits at the end of a quite road surrounding by fields, it is quite a distance from the other hotels in the area and you can feel that you are 'alone' even though it sits directly on the main beach area. Dunes is... More
