I stayed at the Senegambia the last two weeks of February and really enjoyed my stay better than my last stay.
The grounds are what you pay for as the hotel rooms I have been in have all been 2 stars...tv only had 3 channels working, the water was sometimes just luke warm and other times hot..the bed was ok and I slept well, the aircon was good for keeping the room very cool..but not good to warm up. The cleaner give me the most friendly welcome ever the day after I arrived...then I never seen him again until the day before my departure...then he was there to wave me away on departure as though we were long term friends...all for a nice tip...Something that troubled me when i was there was the fact that a 31 year old Indian drowned in the hotel main swimming pool...how on earth a adult was not seen at the bottom of the pool is just crazy as the main pool area is always very busy.....my concern is if an adult can drowned and not been spotted in trouble....then how about a young small child?....One thing I noticed since my last stay was the food was much better....though speaking to people everyone seemed to have the Banjul belly...haha.
Outside the hotel you are on the main area for nightlife and that area is called..The Stip..and ive noticed the Bumpsters are not the force they were....until it got to about 2am...then it was mayhem. ..you got to stand firm with them, No means no. If you are new to The Gambia and if any young males try to befriend you and ask if its your first time in The Gambia....my advice would be ro say...No, ive been here many times...that will put them off giving you hassle but only slightly though...Don't tell them what hotel you are in as they will only claim they work nightshift there so they can get talking to you before they put the bit on for money..
All together a much better stay than last time and if Thomas Cook put better planes on that route I shall return again..
