Sanchaba yellow apartments definitely deserve an excellent feedback. Over Xmas to escape cold winter I went to Senegal first but after few days I decided to go back to Gambia where I had already been, Gambia is quite with much less troubles!
Going back to a place you know has some advantages, you already know how to move and organise yourself. And yellow apts offer a perfect logistic headquarter. Located in sanchaba a cool ad quite area of Serakunda, you are walking distance to the beaches and main touristic attractions but still in the middle of a local genuine area.
The staff, Abdul in particular, will spoil you offering fresh fruits from the garden, preparing you the gambian tea and driving you to his native village. Lamin, the manager, will advice you on everything. We managed to organise a fishing excursion and a natural walk in the nearby forest during the night. Something surely new!
The apartments, I was in the red one, are in very good conditions, cleaned daily, fresh with new mosquito nets. Electricity is there most of the time although unfortunately they need to switch on the generator. It is noisy, I prefer darkness but silence, but there are other customers that could not survive without electrcity!!
Deinitely the best option in Serekunda/banjul, and from my experience, I start thinking possibly one of the most welcoming place of west Africa.
