Senegambia hotel suitable for teenagers?

Been to lots of all inclusives in Caribbean, Goa, Mombasa and wanted somewhere different to try. Not sure if our teenage daughters (16 and 18) would have enough to do at the Senegambia. Also during Easter time are there many teenagers staying?

Glad your Not going All Inclusive this time..

Give you and Family to see The Real Gambia...!!!

Depends on what sort of things they Like, There would be quite a few Teenagers there, a lot come back, again and again.

Plenty of trips to go on,

Good food on The Senegambia Strip, Banks Close to Hotel, Take VISA Cards Only.

Get your Dalasi, when you get there, Much better Rates.

Someone will give you more advice about Teenager Stuff..

Hi

Not sure ric has got that right You say "somewhere different" not "something" If you are really looking for AI there is only one hotel The Sheraton which offers it and the recent reviews have been poor The local food and restaurants are very good and AI totally unneccesary in Gambia The Senegambia is situated in the heart of the main tourist area and your girls will have plenty to do so long as they can handle the local "attention" never a real worry but always there rgds

Whitleycheam, what do your teenagers need to keep amused then we can advise if enough going on. I have a 17yr old creature of the same variety.

Im with Grannystick - depends on what they need to keep them occupied. Our 19 year old has been with us many times and never gets bored, but then he is happy with a pool and the sea and the beach so easy pleased. What sort of thing are you after?? AI?? Hotel?? Or self catering may be an option. We find it great for a family

Hi, we too are going to be in The Gambia for the first time in April staying at Senegambia Hotel and we too will have 2 teenagers in tow. I was hoping that there would be other teenagers there too! Ours will be 14 and 17 and are both looking forward to our visit.

Hi, shame we are not thinking of going this Easter as our girls would have other teenagers to hang around with. We are thinking of in Easter 2012 as we always book a year in advance to get the best prices and availability! Let us know how you get on and how your girls cope with all the hassle from the local boys! We have booked to go to an Iberostar hotel in Dominican Republic this Easter but like the sound of the Gambia and to have a break from the All Inclusive set up and to try somewhere different too. Enjoy your holiday.
