Recommend this hotel if you want to walk out of its grounds straight onto a lovely sandy beach with the lapping, inviting waves of the sea. Friendly staff prepare sun beds, provide bar service. March tempertures up in the 30's. (Pure Bliss). The hotel was relaxing, quiet, well kept all freshly decorated. We stayed in a Suite as advised by... More

I have been in Gambia for six times and all the times I choose to stay in Dunes Resort. It is a wonderful accomodation on a good location. 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

Having traveled to the Gambia for many years now and stayed in many hotels from the top down,this time we decided to stay at the Dunes resort as we knew the beach was still in-tack and quiet compared to those around the Senegambia hotel. Our room was S -1 a first floor corner suite, sea facing with a sizeable balcony... 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

Having read some previous comments we wondered if this was the same hotel where we had stayed before! and if we hadn't stayed there previously the comments would have been very off putting. However no cause for concern Dunes was the friendly and welcoming hotel that we remembered. The management team - Onedina and Kabba - couldn't have been more... More

I was shunted here when my original hotel booking was full. Not very happy when I arrived and was expecting the worst. But, much to my surprise, Dunes hotel has much to commend it. The staff are all helpful but not pushy . They blend perfectly into the calm and relaxing mood which this hotel tries to create. Rooms are... More

we have stayed at the dunes 3 times it would have been 4 but it was closed in November 2013 we stayed at the sunswing which was nice but nowhere near as good as the dunes I certainly do not believe the manager was caught trying to steal suitcases, when we were there in 2012 my husband had an accident...
