My experience at Kairaba was good, rooms are big and clean. The personnel is very helpful. Two things that I need to mention, the TV in my room was not working throughout my stay, it was fixed when I was leaving. The second issue was the weak internet connection. The food was acceptable.

I was there many times because I used to work as a flight attendant and that was our crew hotel. But that is already about 17 years ago. The hotel is right by the sea. Each room at the time had a fridge, air conditioning and a small kitchenette. The breakfast was very good. There was a nice pool. Attention!!!!... More

Good hotel located in the heart of all the restaurants and bars in Senegambia. Internet is not great in the room and the service staff in the breakfast area is not very attentive. Otherwise a good hotel but also on the pricey side. Quick access to the beach and a relaxing pool area.
