This is what you call a boutique hotel, truely awesome! We did not have the pleasure of staying at this chic hotel, but had the pleasure of eating here on two occasions on my recent trip to the Gambia. If the restaurant/bar and the surrounding grounds/pool area are anything to go by, then you can bet the rooms will not disappoint you. Each room has a balcony which over looks the atlantic ocean,words fail me here, you have GOT to see it to believe it! The large pool has the X factor! it changes from blue to pink to green to blue wow wow wow!! As you sit in the romantic restaurant and watch the pool change colour in the beautiful surrounds and the sun going down over the atlantic ocean, you are in heaven! The lovely Austrian owners Nina and Alois are as humble as the gambians themselves, their welcome to their guests is warm, friendly and truely genuine. The food was......ooh la la! simply divine! fresh, tasty, cooked to perfection and presented in a first class manner, hats off to the chef! the waiter Suleman and bar lady Kanie ensure you get first class service, friendly warm helpful and attentive.There is a saying...."we were never strangers, just good friends who never met before" thats the feeling we were left with, and oh yes we would return, but for breakfast as well overlooking the pool and atlantic ocean from our suite on the cliff top! This is the only boutique hotel in the Gambia and we wish Nina,Alois and their wonderful staff every success for the future. Thank you for two unforgetable nights of fine cuisine, fine wine and very fine company.
