This is one of the best hotels I've ever visited! We have visited The Gambia 11 times have stayed at this hotel for the last 7 visits, I can only describe it as an absolutely fantastic hotel with amazing attentive staff the hotel has the best hospitality I've ever seen. I really recommend this place to everyone visiting Gambia it's such a chilled, relaxing hotel with an absolutely fantastic staff team who goes out of their way to help the guests to have the most relaxing, stress free holiday, The Hotel is in a good location. Close to the beach and strip. I for sure will defiantly return again and again.

Our first time in Gambia and a very different experience, Nothing to compare this place with and weve been around a bit now. First impression at the airport with the hustle and hassle from the vast crowd waiting outside the arrivals may leave you intimidated, Pound coins seem to be the general expected tip and everyone will want to carry your cases and help in anyway they can to receive one!! After the initial shock we arrived at the Hotel and found the receptionists there helpful enough, Not the Hilton with cold water or hot flannels to freshen up but friendly enough. Rooms are adequate but remember this is a developing country so there may be some issues!! We struggled with the water supply a couple of times and there were often power outages during the nights, Our two children complained about the terrible folding sofa beds that were provided and they were promptly replaced with proper wooden beds. A couple of ceiling fans were sufficient enough to keep the room cool on the nights so we deferred from paying the £7 a night fee for air con, Basic but clean and ok if your like us and generally just gonna sleep, shower and out!! Breakfast is fairly basic but kept us happy enough, Eggs,Omelettes, Scrambled or fried, Sausages, Beans, Toast, The usual conti stuff etc. Pools ok but we preferred the Djemba's facilitys which are accessable as this is the same hotel group, Djemba is just next door and accesses the beach, I thought the rooms and layout at Djemba were nicer and more modern than the Djeliba!! Food is ok for snacks but the BBQ night was a tad expensive at 500D and tbh not too clever, You will eat better outside on the strip for less, Finally, Book some trips and see the real Gambia, The people here are so friendly and helpful if you put your trust in them, Most of them are genuine so give them a chance and they will look after you. I would definately come back to the Gambia and stay in the Djemba next time

We visited again 17th February same hotel for our 25th wedding anniversary, got the same usual great service from the waiting staff and poolbar staff. Only gripe i had this time is that the pool boys are different to last year and i witnessed young women having to lift their own pool beds etc and the pool boys (not all i may add) would just sit i the shade on their phones. The beer and food etc has nearly doubled in price since 2017 but its still cheap. Room was upstairs in the main building and only had one double socket in the entire room which was annoying as it was under the tv table and i just used the ceiling fan as it was cold enough when on and actually muffled the street noise from the main road at night. Water pressure was very poor and the wanted £10 an hour to keep room on as our flight was very late at night. I noticed that the security wasnt there either on the main road as was last time we visited, the begging from locals has gotten worse but be firm say no and walk on. Already looking for 2020 for my next return and i would pick the same hotel again :) wee small things need changed but does the job
