We were welcomed after an hour delay with smiles and drinks. Our room had a lovely view of the grounds and the sea and was what we had expected of a 3* in Africa. However on closer inspection the safe was not connected to any part of the room (this was rectified next day with our supervision and is now...

Our main goal on this vacation was to relax on the beach and also see some of the real Gambia, meet the people. Lemon Creek is a smallish hotel, with a very nice garden, perfectly located and very close to the beach. They have a pool which we never used, with the ocean so close by. High Waves though :)...

Hello All, I don't have a comparison of what is available in Gambia so I gave this 4 stars. I flew in and booked this hotel with a few days notice.

The staff here can not do enough for you. It is in a very quiet location, with just a few other bars and restaurants within walking distance. Their own restaurant, though, has very good food. The wine is overpriced. Shame the pool bar closes at 18.00 as this leaves nowhere for guests to congregate for a chat over a glass...
