“Fab holiday”
Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in February 2018

Was a little bit worried when I booked Mango Village and more worried when the airport taxi driver didn't know where it was. Didn't help that it was very late but found it eventually. We were greeted by Lamin who showed us to out hut only to find that there was no kitchen area ( partly my fault, misunderstood the options).
This was sorted the following morning when we were moved to a hut with cooking facilities. Fridge, kettle, toaster, one ring gas stove and basic utensils. Basic but more than adequate.
The huts are cute and the furniture is all hand made which was very nice.
There is a mozi net round the bed. The bathrooms are basic but again totally adequate.
The staff cannot do enough to help to make your stay memorable. Lamin is an absolute gem. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble. The manager there is a lovely guy who again can't do enough for the visitors. We went out a few times with Abubu in the Tuck tuck. An experience in itself. He will drop you off and pick you up again at an arranged time and is more reliable than the taxis. Enjoyed lots of nice walks around the little villages, chatting to the locals and the kids playing who seem to love visitors and often ask for minties (sweets) and are really chatty.
The pool wasn't ready whilst we were there but is apparently up and running now. There was a plunge pool and a temporary pool though. The internet is a bit hit and miss but again not something that bothered us too much.
The fishing was perfect for my husband who's mobility isn't great. The staff provided bait and you could use the rods they supplied free of charge. The cleaners were hardworking and always very chatty.
We only had the breakfast provided a couple of times but there was plenty of choice, all freshly cooked and the best bread rolls I've ever tasted.
We saw the odd monkey around the huts who were quite cheeky in a nice way.
The wildlife is lovely to see there.
My hubby enjoyed watching the bats in the evening.
Would we go again. Absolutely. Met some lovely people there and had a lovely relaxing holiday but if you want 5 star then pay for 5 star.

“ONE WEEK IN AN AFRICAN HUT”
Reviewed May 12, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

i wanted to live in an african hut because we should build an own hut later. wanted to feel how its to live there. and... it was really ok. in our hut there were everything we need: a big doublebed with a mosquitonet, a bathroom with shower, one table, one sofa, one chair, i drawer, 2 mirrors, one space for things, 1 fridgerator. breakfast was included and it was more than normal breakfasts used to be. there served boiled eggs, which i must always have in my breakfasts, bread, butter, cheese, sausage, 3 different jams, 2 different juices, longlive milk, yoghurt, different cerials, coffee and tea. breakfast corner was outside in the garden area. buffe so you could eat as much u feeled. very nice experience for me celibrating our 1 years marriage there. they had decorated one Morning when we were eating breakfast our bed with flowers writing "happy anniversary". also they arranged our party in the garden with buffe and 3-man orchestra. the only minus thing was that we must always take a taxi when going out and eat because i hade difficulties to walk (must use a rullator).

“Cute Cabin”

A unique "hut" set in unusual surroundings of mango farms. Staff were very obliging & I would definitely come here again later in the year when I return to Gambia. My only complaint? A large mango crashing on the roof about 2am & waking me up . Quite a cute experience!
