This was mu first trip to Gambia but I had heard that that there were only two good hotels in Gambia which of course did not include Kairaba so my friends and I took a risk. The hotel is amazing, the ambience and connection to nature make loads of sense. It didn't feel so much like a hotel which is... More

This was my first trip to Gambia so had nothing else to base this on however my girlfriend has been to Gambia many times and stayed at various hotel resorts over the years but we both agree that the complex was fantastic, very clean and nicely laid out. We had a nose around at the other hotels in the area... More

We had a group trip to the International Roots Festival 2014 with 'Rave about Africa' and we stayed at the Kairaba Hotel. The staff there were lovely, they were very helpful and supported us in planning for our events. We had booked Deluxe Rooms and they were to a high standard. We were met with a beautiful basket of fruit,... More

We spent a wonderful week with our 10 year old son at the Kairaba over Easter on a B&B basis. This was our 4th visit to the Gambia but the first to this hotel and we are so pleased that we did. Pay no attention to any of the negative comments made by other reviewers, this hotel has it all!... More

A week ago my partner and I visited the Gambia for the first time. We had a sea view room, and the view was lovely. The most impressive part of the hotel is the wonderful gardens which are immaculately kept. All of the hotel staff are very friendly, helpful and always smiling. Our room was always kept beautiful, tidy and... More

We had the standard rooms last year and knew that we would each have a decent sized room with a patio (ground floor both visits), comfortable twin beds and a... More

Just returned from 10 days B&B at this fab hotel. We have stayed in the Sengambia which was good but not a patch on the Kairaba. The rooms are far superior. The grounds are beautiful, a tropical paradise. Breakfast was lovely, everything you could want. However, the best assett they have is their staff - they are friendly, helpful and... More

Firstly the staff are very friendly and welcoming and make sure you are looked after! On arrival they helped us take our luggage to our rooms and noticed there was no tv in one of the rooms to which they sent for one straight away without us asking or mentioning it. One day we returned to our room to find... More
