I've been to Gambia before and stayed at the Kombo Beach hotel and the Senegambia. Do the rooms at this hotel have private balconies and sea views?
Some have sea views and some have pool views, but an excellent hotel. We were there two weeks ago and plan going back in November.
alot of the rooms have private terraces or balconies. we stayed there earlier this month and had a shared balcony with the room next door (but i think this was only because the rooms had an adjoining door). most rooms have garden views or sea views. we did stay there a couple of years ago and had a nice view of a high wall in front of our room but a nice sea view from the side!
Forgot to mention that the first floor rooms have private balconies. The ground floor rooms have a sitting area outside patio doors with table and chairs in lieu of a balcony.
I haven't stayed at the Kombo but have had a look at the rooms and they don't compare to the Ocean Bay. We have stayed at Ocean Bay 9 times and would highly recommend it as the standard of accommodation is very high by Gambian standards. Air con, minibar/fridge, tv, safe deposit box all come as part of the package so no add-ons. If you specifically ask for block 6 you will get a sea view head on, albeit the rooms are about 50yards from the beachfront and the beach is quite wide. The upper rooms are preferable as you get private balcony.
Got your message re senegal trip, what a stinker! We are planning to go back out 16/11, so send me a pm when you confirm dates and if we cross it would be good to meet up again for a drink and natter when out there.
Thanks for the reply.
We are planning on going on the 5th November for 7 days. Julie can't change her holiday dates so it looks like we will miss you guys. Shame about that, but there is always next year!
