If you are looking for a clean, comfortable and quiet hotel this is the one for you. We were very happy with our choice as we were not looking for entertainment. The only thing that spoilt our stay were people smoking outside our window as the terraces are extremely close to the next rooms window. Be prepared to be visited by monkeys and take care not to feed them as they can be quite dangerous when snatching food etc.
Breakfast is basic but adequate. The main restaurant ,Captains Table, is well worth a visit. It gets really busy as the food is excellent so be prepared to wait or book in advance. Its a little more expensive than the other restaurants around but great for a special night.
We visited Sailors on several ocassions and were never disappointed, excellent food at reasonable prices.
The sun loungers on the beach outside Sailors are very comfortable and you are well looked after by the beach boys. A special thank you to Ousman, Louis and Lamin for their care and attention whilst we were in Gambia.
If you are planning any trips I would definately recommend the local tour company 'Bushwacker Tours' they are excellent, friendly, knowlegeable and very reasonable. Visit their website before you go to see what they have to offer. The boat trip down the creek is a must! The trip to Senegal is also amazing, don't miss it.
