We have stayed at Dunes a few times now and have always been happy there, but the staff have made it a great place to stay. JJ is a lovely person who will take very good care of you during your stay (she even carried me to bed one night after a bit too much to drink). Mumin the pool boy cannot do enough for you and now has his own taxi also, so you can arrange tours, airport pickups and general taxi journeys through him. With Mumins permission he has asked me to put his telephone number should anybody want to pre arrange anything with him. Its [-] and hes a great guy and won't rip you off. At the end of the hotel as you go down to the beach is Jula's beach bar. We spent most of our days there, the boys and girls are fantastic, especially Moses Capuccino. There are 3 guys called Moses, but make sure you ask for Moses Capuccino, hes the loveliest most honest guy you can meet and I always shed a tear when saying goodbye to him. He will help you during your stay and cannot do enough for you. Tell him Jo & Michael say Hi!!
Other than that the rooms in Dunes are clean and tidy and the upstairs rooms are huge. Breakfast is basic but you can order, eggs, bacon etc if thats what you prefer. Pool area is nice and clean as Mumin takes pride in his work. Other than that enjoy, Gambia is a wonderful place with some of the friendliest people Ive ever met and I cannot wait to return.
Some restaurants to mention are Luigi's (best Italian food ever), Boss Lady (fantastic Gambian dishes), The Vineyard (excellent) and Koko Curry (nice Indian).
