This was our second time in The Gambia and we choose the same hotel and the same guide. We like it so much on the first time! The staff are still just as helpful and friendly. All give a big smile which really makes your day. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We emailed Aziz the bird man to pick... More

One or two exceptional members of staff Negatives Not many bars/restaurants within walking distance No umbrella for shade around the pool. Food is poor quality Constant harassment from several members of staff (however, there where some really nice members of staff) Constant harassment from people... More

Stayed with 2 friends, all of us in the same room which was a bit of a squeeze. Large bathroom. We did have a problem with the shower which the staff eventually recitifed. The beach is is very close by and the there are many willing hands to get you sun loungers, drinks, and snacks. Our room was in block... More

I stay at Palm Beach yearly, not for the quality but for the laid back feel and the cheapness. I get out and about it's a good place to rest my head have breakfast and go, if I want to go beach you cant get closer 20 meters away.

Just spent 10 days at this hotel and even making allowances for the fact it's in Africa it is diabolical!! Management are clearly in it just for the money, not interested at all in the paying guest once they have your money! You expect this treatment from the bumsters but not from a so called "professional" management team! Breakfast is... More

The staff at the hotel are great. Good size room, everything you need. Rooms cleaned daily, to good standard. Food, not much variety at breakfast, but plenty to keep you going. Wi fi OK. Lovely beach area. Had a fantastic time.
