You will like this place. The atmosphere is very nice. Entertainment nightly by the pool. Free breakfast. Very inexpensive. The food was really good. I am not the type to spend a lot of money for a hotel, but I felt guilty that they charged so little for what they give you. I even saw the NFL playoff game on... More

I went to the Gambia for the very first time for Xmas last year. I had an amazing time. I returned at the end of March this year and although it was quite a different experience second time around overall it was still enjoyable... I will review the Palm beach hotel properly in another review but this one is to... More

Having never travelled to Africa before I wasn't sure what to expect. On arrival I was a little shocked at the tired and run down feel of the place, the reception, bar and pool are actually reasonable. Some of the rooms do let the hotel down. The blocks are split into three, Block A, B and C, Block A being... More

Just spent 2 weeks at this hotel with my husband, teenage son & young children. Weather was really sunny & hot, but cooler at beach due to cool breeze. Very windy on a night & quite cool, really needed a jacket & trousers. ROOMS - the rooms have air conditioning which you need to pay for once you get there.... More

It's not a hotel where to expect a luxurious room. Yes the place is a little bit worn with age. However, if you want to relax on the beach, which is very close to your room, you will be very happy! Don't forget to order your daily fruit dish from lady Gada. If you like a great view on the... More

This hotel consists of a number of separate chalets surrounding a small swimming pool, restaurant and reception area. Considering the hotel rating is three star we thought that the overall experience was very good. It is set in a semi rural area comprising trees an estuary and a rice field meaning that there was a huge variety of wide life... More

It was our first time to Gambia. It is the best holiday I've had. The hotel is basic which was fine for us as we were only sleeping there. We could shower daily, had clean towels and the bed linen was changed every two days. All staff were very friendly and polite. Breakfasts were good as was the food at... More

Great hotel, friendly and helpful staff, rooms could do with a bit of updating, but it is Africa and cheap. Rooms clean, pool clean, nice breakfast and good poolside bar. Will be visiting again very soon. Ask for 'Aziz', the bird man to show you around. He is a great guide and will save you a stack of cash. Avoid... More

Just returned from a lovely 1 week break at Palm Beach. This was mine and my mums first trip to Gambia and it was a real eye opener, considering we had only ever travelled around Europe. So we arrived at the hotel and was showed to our room. It was in C Block which is the quietest as it is... More
