Room was good sizes, same was bathroom. Bit dated, but all were nice and cleaned. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was bit drab, but never left with hungry feeling. Location was great, sea was very close. Not noisy, even we had our windows to street side. Pool was nice size and cleaned.

After staying at various other places, the last 4 visits have been based here. Yes it is all a bit dated, hot water not 24/7 etc, but quietly individualistic, in the African way. Good hot and cold buffet breakfast. We privately arranged an upgrade to one of the apartments, at 20% of the price Gambia Experience wanted. Then it was...

The vacation in the Cape Point Hotel was amazing. Rooms were a little bit dated but it was a surprise for me that the rooms were so big. There was in every room a balcony, a fridge, tv, bath etc. The service at the front desk was very good and friendly. I got sick day before departure and a guy...

Rooms were clean and tidy, if a little dated. Staff were all very friendly. Do make sure you get a room with air conditioning. We came here on B and B basis as there are plenty of good places to eat outside the hotel and you also get to meet the local people. If you go out of the hotel...

Beds not great, but location is. The staff members are great - friendly and helpful. Rooms need new beds and other updates. Have stayed here for three years in a row for a mission trip. Continue to stay at this hotel because of relationships built with the staff members.

Stayed here for a week,hotel clean and tidy and grounds well looked after although the rooms could do with a update,great beach and a good place to mix with some locals. Breakfast typical of this type of hotel and if your looking for somewhere that won't break the bank it's not to bad.

Not the newest place and therefore you shouldn't expect it to be modern. The rooms were a bit dated but everything worked well and we were definitely happy staying there. The pool area is really nice and peaceful and the beach is only around the corner. We didn't get the hotel breakfast as we thought we'd be able to make...

This is basically a hotel that seems to double as a Scandinavian retirement home of poor quality. The staff in the reception are friendly but ineffective. Rooms... We paid extra for the best rooms... but when we arrived they had problems due to double booking (again) so we got a normal room the first night. The horror that met us...

Really great hotel: do not expect luxury. Simple rooms, but clean. The barracuda is delicious in the restaurant and the staff is very nice. In contrast, it is more fun to spend most of your time outside the hotel doors. Take an official local guide: You find them in a simple stall opposite the Ocean Bay Hotel (the only resort...
