Were here in 2012 and just loved it. Back in January 2020 for one week: Nothing has changed! Very quiet, very shady place, right on the beach. Yes, many things are worn down and should be renovated, but still a lovely place! If you look for 4 star luxury, an opulent breakfast, a kitchen with Michelin standard and loud music you should go elsewhere! The staff is very helpful. Many local birds. In nearby Kairaba Avenue a discount super market selling beer and alcohol, they even accept "plastic"!! MasterCard and Visa. We have been to many places in the Gambia: Leybato is one of the better. We will be back!
Although the beachfront location is perfect, the passage of years has taken it's toll on the property. Almost everything needs renovating. All around are signs of neglect. Showers often run cold or not at all. Beds and pillows in many rooms are rock hard. Food service in the restaurant is amazingly slow. Upholstery on outside chairs is shabby. Breakfast is the same everyday; bread, boiled eggs,cheese, jam and fresh fruit. The coffee isn't good either. Often the bar runs out of cold beer, meaning a long wait while bottles chill in the freezer. Very limited range of wines & spirits too. Th hotels saving grace is the lovely and peaceful location.
The location and the simple facilities. The food for lunch/dinner was especially great. One could not have wanted a better location, right next to the beach. Glass of beer or wine (or both!) while watching the sun set and listening to the waves. Excellent value for money. The bed could have been better - it was long past its normal life. Breakfast was disappointing.
A beautiful place to relax and watch the sunset. The hammocks are a little low but the numerous little guys have very comfortable seats to make up for it. Watch the Gambian locals playing football and doing acrobats or you can join in with rather invigorating beach Pilates/yoga too. The choice is yours. The beach is rather limited for these activities at high tide so time it right.
visited this place a few times for drinks and meetings and always liked the location and views. I tried their restaurant a two times and on both occasions it was a disaster. The pizza is the worst I ever had and ordered fired noodles the second time and was served fried spaghetti. Complain but no refund or replacement was offered. The drinks and view is great tho.
