We stayed one week in the hotel during New Year. The room was very basic and worn, but still okay. Terrace in front of the room was nice. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. On New Year Eve's dinner there was a mistake with our bill in the hotel restaurant. I don't know if they tried to cheat us or was it just a honest miscalculation. Except that one incident I don't have anything to complain about the service.
The location is perfect. The best thing (in my boyfriend's opinion) was that there is A SURFBREAK right in the front of the hotel. And there were nice waves and the possibility to surf everyday! But you need to bring your own board as there is no surf shops in Gambia. At least we didn't see any.
Breakfast was really simple but it was okay. I actually started to like it after the first day's disappointment.
We only tried hotel's restaurant on New Year's evening dinner. For me as a half vegetarian it was nothing special, but everyboby else said it was really tasty.
We didn't like any of the "tourist restaurants" in Kololi. The best food we got in Rellax Bar on the main road.
