I do not recommend! Poor quolity of the rooms - dirty and shabby, A lot of mold and it was stinking. In doors and windows there were wide leaks that insects entered without problems. During the day often problem with electricity - so the air condition didn't work and there were only warm drinks. Breakfasts always started with delay -... More

The first bight when I arrived it all looked a bit dated and needed renovation. I got probably the only room with a small hole on the front door out of which at night many big insects appeared into my room. I was not planning to sleep there. I even wanted to change the hotel as I thought it would... More

We just spend two weeks in this hotel, it is not a bad hotel but there are defenetly better hotels of the same price range as the Golden Beach Hotel. The rooms are basic but fine since you wont be spending much time on your room anyway. The cleaning is perfect. Staff very friendly! During our stay there were problems... More

After booking this hotel we had read some negative reviews about it but found that things were not nearly as bad as we expected. The rooms we had were very spacious, cleanliness was good and there was always plenty of hot water Air conditioning has to be paid for on arrival, but this is consistent with this area, and when...

My husband booked us into this hotel, as a surprise, to celebrate my 70th. Birthday. We had been there 2 yrs. ago. What a change. The room had only 1 bed side table & lamp. The electric socket was hanging off the wall. Plaster had fallen from the ceiling. The toilet leaked and the bathroom door did not close. The... More

There are a few good points but unfortunately far too many bad points. The good points are its cheap,plenty of sun loungers,the massages are superb, pleasant 100 yard footpath to the beach, all the rooms have a sea view and are reasonably large. I am a bit scared to start the list of bad points but here goes,loungers are uncomfortable... More

Just came back from a stay at Golden Beach hotel. I have to admit that I was a bit sceptic about the hotel after reading the reviews. But we wanted to stay in a small hotel, and with 26 rooms, it is not a touristic hotspot Reception, Susan is responsible for the guests and she does a good job. The... More

Firstly I would like to point out that this is a very poor country. If you want European 5* standard, then re think your holiday. This hotel was an very pleasant surprise on our arrival. The staff gave us a wonderful experience. You must try the food which is very competitively priced. Breakfast is simple, but they do extra's on... More

We have just returned from Golden Beach and were worried because of the reviews. Quite frankly people should research where they are booking and accept what the country has to offer. Yes the electricity goes off from time to time and so does the water but get over it you are in the Gambia not the South of France who... More
