I have never been to The Gambia before my recent trip. I stayed at Palm Beach Hotel for two weeks with no issues. Obviously The Gambia is very much a developing country,so if you travel expecting a luxury hotel with five star standards you are likely to be disappointed. My room was basic,clean but comfortable. All the staff were very... More

But once we settled in and decided to make the most of our first visit to the Gambia it was not that bad! The "suite" has a large living room, bedroom and balcony (fantastic view to the... More

Don't expect 5star or even 3star. This is The Gambia. What you can expect is friendly helpful people who will go out of their way to give you a good holiday. The food is simple but sufficient. The rooms are basic but cleaned every day, towels changed daily, beds made and staff trustworthy. (More than can be said about many... More

This was our first visit to The Gambia and really had no idea what to expect. Have back packed in Egypt and Kenya and assumed this would've been a typical package holiday resort. Was pleasantly surprised. To start with the hotel was amazing value for money,clean,large room with everything you could need not luxurious but perfect for what we needed.... More
