We visited Leo's for the first time in December 2016. The hotel is off-the-beaten-track, but when you arrive it's like an oasis. There are only 6 or so rooms and they're all modern and clean. All of the rooms have a good-sized balcony overlooking the pool and towards the sea. The pool and gardens are beautiful, tranquil and very well...

We charmed by Nina and Aloys, the Austrian couple who own the establishment, from our first interaction via email. They were warm, welcoming, humorous. You need a 4 wheel drive to drive to the hotel, but you can wear high heels in the hotel. Having arrived in the evening, the owners welcomed us like friends, and escorted us to our...

Having visited Gambia many times over the past 10 years we found the amazing Leo's 4 years ago and now stay here every year. Most of the reviews mention the spacious suites, the cleanliness, immaculate gardens, quality of food in the restaurant, superb pool and close proximity to the long beach. Yes all of these get 10 out of 10...

This is our second trip to Leos, and unfortunatley we had our planned trip of ten days cut to seven due to Thomas Cook only flying once a week from B'ham instead of twice as originally scheduled. We were just as impressed by the place the second time round, right from the welcome at the start right through to the...

Our second trip and still as wonderful as before if not better, staff grounds food all fantastic and you could not ask for better hosts than Nina and Louis. A totally relaxing experience, It was very quiet whilst we were there due to the recent political issues but visitors are now coming back. We will be back next year
