Returned on the 7th of January from yet another wonderful holiday at the Lemon Creek, it was absolutely perfect for a Christmas and New Year break.
Once again we met some amazing inspiring people from all around the world.
If you are looking for hustle & bustle this is not the hotel for you... This is a tranquil relaxing hotel.
If you do go, please go out & about, there is loads to see and do, speak with Hana the hotel owner she has connections with the Womens cooperative, providing Gambian Women with skills to make them independent.
Our room didn't have AC but it does have a wall mounted fan which was fine.
Go and try the Lemon Creek, you won't regret it for sure.
