The season had just started, so there were only 2 other guests at the hotel when we stayed there. The receptionist was incredibly rude to me on arrival - three times - saying we... More

Have stayed at the Mansea Beach Hotel several times in the past and was pleasantly surprised by the upgraded rooms. The lack of facilities here are tremendously well balanced by the friendly, accommodating staff. The rooms are immaculately attended to by the cleaner every day and nothing is too much bother for them. Towels are changed as required. The waiter/pool... More

I often stay at Mansea beach. Me and my friends like to stay there when we visit the Gambia. We feel very safe and secure, it is value for the money and you have everything you need. The daytime reception manager Lamin is the most professional kind person I have had the pleasure of meeting, year after year. The morning... More

Booked this place for two weeks over Christmas and New Year. We've stayed in quite a few hotels in The Gambia but this was by far the worst. The first room we were shown was in a block that was supposedly being refurbished but after walking through a building site to get to it I think I would have preferred... More
