Just returned today from staying at this hotel and our first time in The Gambia, we had a lovely relaxing 10 days. We chose to stay at this hotel after a recommendation and compared to others in the area, it definitely looks the best choice. Unfortunately for the The Gambia the tourist numbers are down due to Ebola in West... More

This is a very late review as we stayed at the Kairaba a couple of years ago but on reading the recent reviews it is obviously still just as good as it was then. The staff are wonderful and couldn't be more helpful, the rooms are clean and up-to-date and the air con is fabulous, it can cut out now... More

Returned to Kairaba after 2 years. Disappointingly, the hotel has made some significant changes not for the betier. The pool bar is no longer the centre of fun that it was with no evening buffet, staff changes, poor cocktail mixers and no entertainment. The evening buffet is now in the main hotel with no atmosphere and priced out of range... More

Stayed at Kairaba this month. Staff attentive and very welcolming. Meals could have been better apart from breakfast as there was so much choice. It is cheaper to eat at the restaurants which are all within walking distance. Staff need training to make cocktails!

We have stayed at Thr Kairaba many times and not a lot has changed. The staff here are the best in The Gambia without exception and any interaction... More

My review is a little late but here it is. We stayed at the Kairaba for 10 days in March and enjoyed our time there. The hotel staff are very pleasant and helpful, the grounds beautifully kept (Africa not Kew), plenty of space in the gardens or around the pool and pool bar for sunbathing as the beach area was...

Just returned from a one week stay at the kairaba after some problems with building work at the hotel we had originally booked. First things first I could not disagree more with the previous review. Remember where you are, this is Africa!! Breakfast is absolutely fantastic I have never seen so much choice available- various fresh fruit, fresh warm croissants,... More
