Where can I start?!

Ideal location, great staff, free wifi, free pick up and drop off at airport, wonderful pool, lovely new linen and towels this season, daily cleans and my favorite washing and ironing done for a small fee!

The apartments are great for groups staying who prefer there own space. There was 5 of us this time so we booked one bungalow and one apartment both of which have their own cooking facilities. Last year we there was 7 of us and Sundowners was ideal.
Having travelled extensively in The Gambia for several years and initially staying in various hotels we decided a few years ago to book an apartment. We were after a place with a pool and abit of freedom to invite our Gambian friends round for dinner seeing as we have been to their houses many times! Sundowners ticked all the boxes.

For us it's a real home from home, nothing is too much trouble for Lamin the main security person, The rooms are cleaned daily to a good standard and washing done and ironed on request.. Very chillled out atmosphere which is what we look for.

The apartments are just off the main road where taxis are available. 50 - 100d to Senegambia or a 15 minute walk to the small strip at Kuto. Plenty of local shops and fruit stalls around. Right choice supermarket 50d away which sells eveything!!

Already planning our next trip and will be staying at Sundowners - wouldn't stay anywhere else!!

“Relaxing, safe, just as I wanted it this time!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

I appreciated to be collected from the airport and taken back to the airport when the holiday was over. Dave and Bella who are the hosts for Sundowners are very friendly, helpful and nice couple. The place is beautiful with a lot of fantastic flowers and the pool is a plus to it all. It was swwet to start my day with a yoga class by the pool. The staff were all friendly and helpful. This place i close to most I needed, like the sea, restaurants and whatever social life you need. I strongly recommed it. It was also safe and calm, which was what I really needed this time. Thank you for making my holiday a beautiful memory.

“Quiet, clean apartment with a great pool, value for money”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

The four rooms in the apartment building are a bit tiny but clean (cleaning 2-3 times a week). Nice and helpful local staf (maid, guard, driver). Great pool, bit cold but clean. Distance to the beach is a 20 min. walk. WiFi is available. Value for money!
