One World Village Guesthouse
Ranked #1 of 2 Banjul B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 February 2012

We found the Oneworld Village guesthouse walking by and we definitely made a good choise staying there. It's a very peaceful, green, quiet and relaxing place. I liked it very much because it's very close (3 min walking distance) to a beautiful beach in Cape Point where you can take a bath, take lovely morning walks, you can run on the beach,... If you don't like swimming in the Gambia River/sea there is a swimming pool in the lovely garden of the guesthouse. We personally couldn't enjoy it because it was under construction but instead we could use the swimming pool of a Hotel close by.
Aita and Amadou are very friendly, helpful and open people who do a very good job running their buisness. In the guesthouse you can choose between different kinds of accomodation - from standard rooms with your own bathroom, bedrooms with a shared bathroom to a comfortable and good looking appartment/suite all for a very reasonable price. If you want you can have breakfast with a lot of fruit what I personally appreciated very much.
Close to the guesthouse you find a lot of nice and cheap restaurants - just ask Aita and Amadou for suggestions - and you can reach the "Holy Kachikaly crocodile pool" on foot.
I definitely recommend the One World Village Eco Lodge.

I stumbled upon this lovely guesthouse...How lucky I was! A very warm friendly helpful atmosphere.Nothing too much trouble....humour.....energy....and to cap it all, these lovely people are doing so much good work in the community.....helping local people with school fees....providing a well....building a market......They deserve support....but this is not charity..they are simply worth staying with anyway!

One World Village was one of the best remember i will take in my heart during my stay in Gambia. Amadou and Aita are lovely hostess, always nice, friendly and full of attention during my stay. They helps you with all the informations you need about The Gambia. I felt a very positive energy there. The Guest House is in one of the best position in Bakau. 2 minutes walking from the Beach in a quite area. Restaurants are all around in walking distance. But it is also possible in the house. Good Quality price-service. Dont see the time to come back.

This recently opened guesthouse is probably the best choice in Bakau. It´s owned by a lovely swedish-gambian couple who care a lot about the guesthouse and the visitors.
It has a beautiful garden to relax and watch birds. When we were there they were about to finish their nice pool in the middle of the garden. Unfortunately we left too early to enjoy it.
The location is only 2 min walk to the beach.
We would definately come back!
