We booked last minute and then read a load of grumbling reviews. Worried as we were we soon got into the swing of things. It's not that bad at all. The hotel is basic but clean, we had a bungalow room. Breakfast is a miss, we didn't opt for AI and glad we didn't so we could explore Gambia a... More

Loved this place so much. The hotel was a tad basic but very clean and everything that you need. We had a bungalow which was very roomy. The guests at this resort were mainly middle aged couples which suited us fine. We chose the all inclusive package and for the price we wasn't expecting too much. We were very pleasantly... More

Not exactly the hotel's fault... but Thomas cook sold this as all inclusive to us at the end of the winter season. The hotel was almost devoid of other guests so no services were running and so there was nothing much to do at the hotel. Meals were luxury compared to outside services and how the local people with... but... More

Stayed here for 3 nights it's what it is an affordable basic hotel, get your head down for the night type place nothing fancy but clean. We ate next door at the motel but the Palma Rima does offer breakfasts themselves. Worth booking but don't expect the Ritz.

r the rooms are extremely basic with two single beds one of which had bed bugs, the staff try very hard but the management don't seem to care I would not return to this hotel, unless there was a massive overhaul of the rooms this place has so much potential
