Having read a lot about this hotel I thought I should try set the record straight. I have been to the Gambia a few times and standards are a little different to other destinations.
My trip to the Sheraton was actually a very good. My wife and I had an upgrade to a beach front room which was brilliant. We were driven down in a golf buggy by a charming young lad, good start!. We had booked bed and breakfast. Major mistake! Firstly when you come to order drinks at the bar you will need a mortgage. Secondly when you go out of the hotel there is no sign of a bar or a restaurant in walking distance. We quickly upgraded to all-inclusive. Of course, now they have got you.
Meals over the week were ok - nothing outstanding. Be aware that beef and lamb in the Gambia will be nothing like the standard we enjoy here in the UK. Stick to fish and chicken especially prawns which are outstanding, but done best in the restaurants in Serekunda.
The room was lovely - the staff were mixed, but the waiters were excellent.
Overall - the hotel was really nice. The spa was absolutely outstanding!
Biggest problem is position because without a lengthy taxi ride there is no choice at all. So if you like a great beach, cheap drinks, ok food then book this all inclusive and enjoy brilliant sunshine.
