Best area and nicest hotel please

Hello. We are looking to go to Gambia in early November and are looking for an area where we can go out but also the most luxurious hotel on the island. I am aware that the majority of the hotels are not star rated but which is best? We are also thinking about going all inclusive.

Ideas please. Xx

Coco Ocean the best in tourist areas, but Sandele if you want style away from the riff raff.

Ngala Lodge is just lovely, never stayed there but visited and it is gorgeous! The food there is pretty amazing too by all accounts.

I'd agree with Ngala Lodge.....maybe a week there and a week at Sandeles ? I think both do fb but not AI. The food at Ngala Lodge is excellent.

Just had a look at Ngala Lodge and it looks gawjus! Does anyone know if it can only be booked through Gambia Experience or can it be booked separately? Gambia Experience are too expensive, silly prices which I won't pay. Thanks for any info.

Also, am I right in saying that Ngala Lodge is situated nearby Leybato's restaurant ?

I believe it can only be booked through GE, not sure if you can book direct though. Ngala Lodge is opposite the MRC and next to the British High Commission. Not sure exactly where Leybato's is but is that area!
