The rooms are in several well spaced out small blocks scattered around a well stocked garden.
We stayed in a deluxe room which was adequately furnished with a shower room, TV and fridge with a pay as you use service stocked with soft drinks and bottled beer. The deluxe rooms were in a better location but costs more. I believe that the rooms are being refurbished during the summer.
We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis but only ate breakfast at the hotel. There was a large selection of food on offer, both hot and cold and of a good standard.
We ate at local restaurants which are all within a short walk from the hotel. We recommend the Hungarian which is about 100 yards to the left on leaving the hotel.
The hotel has an al a carte restaurant on site called The Red Croc which is of a high standard but more expensive than the local ones but is well worth the extra.
There is a large swimming pool with plenty of sun beds.
There is day and evening entertainment provided.
The hotel is right beside a large private beach accessed from the gardens with free sun beds, sun shades and towels. Food and drinks are provided from the beach bar.
Why not try a fresh fruit drink made from freshly squeezed fruit from the juice bars to the right of the beach, ask Solomon for one of his specials, they are delicious. A little further on are the fruit ladies who can provide you with a plate of fresh fruit for lunch, try Fatamas plate of mixed fruit.
Just a little further beside the croc pool, yes there are crocodiles in it, you will find the bird men who will take you bird watching, try David he provides a great service.
If you want an excellent guide to take you anywhere in The Gambia and show you all the sites and also take you bird watching ask Solomon at the fruit juice bar to get in touch Mamou.
Over all this is a great hotel in an excellent location, it's so good we have been 6 times and will be back again.
