Kingfishers Apartments
Reviewed 4 July 2014

I stayed at the Kingfishers apartments beginning of June 14. I arrived around 9pm to a warm welcome from Charlie and Clinton, who provided me with tea coffee milk etc, to help me get started.

The apartments are clean and they are all in the process of being updated for the coming season. The apartments are of a good European standard, and the plunge pool is a god send.

The staff were very attentive and Charlie and Clinton were great hosts. I would definitely recommend these apartments.

Room Tip: Apartment 4 is lovely

It was my fourth visit in Gambia, for sure the best conditions compared with other hotels in the same price. Very clean and quiet. Nice and friendly owners Charlie & Clinton, helpful stuff (move in the night silently as ghosts) ;)
Apartments have good facilities, well equipped kitchen, tv, dvd, safe, in a word everything you need. Nice garden, outside place for making tea, 5 minutes to highway to get taxi, 10 minutes walk to the beach.
It was really pleasure meet you and spend with you twelve days, hope next time stay longer in Gambia of course in Kingfishers.

Arrived Christmas day, best Christmas we have ever had.
The apartments are clean and comfortable with everything you need.
Charlie, Clinton and the boys will go the extra mile to make your stay an exceptional one.
Cant wait to book for Christmas this year (I pray they have availability).
So anyone wanting to visit Gambia I would highly recommend these apartments.
Kingfisher is the place to be.

For a warm welcome,comfort and an affordable feeling of a home away from home, head to the Kingfishers in Bijilo, The Gambia.
Close enough to experience real life,with the local school and home compounds close by, its a great base to explore all that Gambia has to offer. Amongst so much more,warm smiles, weather and company.
The guys at Kingfishers are unintrusive yet never to far away to offer assistance, advice on the local area, people, places to go and see,the local culture and customs, they are a font of knowledge so just ask!. Helpful, always cheerful and polite, Pap, Sait and Sekkuba alongside Clinton and Charlie, make a great team, who go out of their way to make your stay the best it can be.
So for guaranteed sunshine and smiles all year round Kingfishers in The Gambia is the place to go.

Charlie and Clinton own this beautiful quiet 4 apartment complex in Bijilo. Stayed here for a two week chill out holiday, it was perfect.
Lovely spacious, clean and comfortable rooms. Apartments 1and 2 are the slightly smaller (cheaper) ones with electric hob and 3 and 4 are bigger with gas cookers (As you may know in Gambia there are a lot of power cuts so at least with gas you can still cook, however Charlie and Clinton always provide boiled water in flasks for when your needing a refreshing cuppa! Oh and don't worry they do have a generator so you do get power when needed!)
Charlie and Clinton have a special something and everyone become friends rather than acquaintances it's really lovely. They provide certain essentials on site like water, soft drinks, beer, butter, eggs etc all at very competitive prices (nice touch and very welcome).
About 5/10 minute walk to beach depending how fast you walk and how hot it is! Beautiful beach and I would say best part of beach in that area of Gambia.
They have four staff members (Pap, Sait, Seckou and Amadu (sorry about the spelling)) you will fall in love with all of them. Oh and not to forget the very crafty Ranger the dog, his expression will have you feeling soooo sorry for him that you will give him anything he wants ie tickles and food lol.
All in all do not hesitate to book a room here you will not be disappointed, Charlie and Clinton go out of their way to provide their guests (friends) with as much as they possibly can. Perfect!
All the best Charlie, Clinton, the 4 boys and Ranger xxx

Spent the week in 33 degrees sunshine. The accommodation is lovely and relaxing, the rooms are clean and well maintained. Charlie and Clinton the owners made us feel really welcome. The apartments are only 10 minutes walk to the great sandy beaches. There are plenty of local restaurants, like 2Rays & 777, where you can get cheap good food. The Senegambia strip is only 5 minutes taxi drive away (costing approx 40p), The Green Mamba is worth a visit. Plenty of places to visit and things to do during the day - fishing, alligator park and even went to a local school. Really enjoyed the week and will be visiting again!
