Baobab Holiday Resort
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Bijilo
Reviewed 5 February 2013

We had a very pleasant stay at the Baobab Holiday Resort. Our room (the cheapest type) was simple, but clean and comfortable, with a good bed and clean towels every day. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is very good. We also rented bicycles from the hotel (200 dalasis a day, which is cheaper than most rentals in the area). Baobab is a small-scale hotel, so all the guests get personal attention, and it is locally owned, so the money stays in the country.

Good clean place with swimming pool and very helpfull and kind staff. every day new towels and bedsheets
Location is aprox 3km from "the Senegambia strip". It's easy to stop a shared yelow taxi during day time and for 7 Dalasi you're in a few minutes at the strip. Coming back in the evening (after 2200hr) a private taxi will cost you between 50 and 100 dalasi. No need to take the expensive green taxis during daytime.).

Room Tip: First have a look at your room before you accept. If available it's no problem to change a preb...

CareGambia, a Dutch NGO, has been helping schools and hospitals in The Gambia for about 10 years now.Not just sending materials but also sending specialists. CareGambia has used several of the local hotels over the years but wants to recommend Baobab Holiday Resort above all for its safety, quiet location and excellent service. The rooms are located in 5 bungalows located around the main pool area. All rooms have a ceiling fan, a.c, small fridge, tv and bathroom. The rooms on ground floor have a spacious living room and seperate cooking area as well. The hotel reception is available 24/7 and also the restaurant is available well after midnight.
This is ideal since the teammembers usually leave early and arrive late.
There are several conference rooms available and the hotel offers free WiFi for all guests.
It's just a short walk, across the road, to the quiet beach and only 1.5 km. to Senegambia. There are pleny of taxis available but CareGambia reccommend a cool walk on the beach.
