stayed at this hotel for Easter, have been to The Gambia over 40 times since 1991 but never stayed in this hotel. We chose this hotel as it was late deal , would recommend travelling with The Gambia Experience as we have been travelling with them on and off for over 20 years and cannot fault there service. The rep for them at the hotel was most helpful and very friendly.
We travelled with two children under 12.
Would recommend a suite as they are more spacious even if only two of you are travelling , would also recommend a top floor as we had beautiful sea views.
Cannot fault cleanliness of room as it was kept spotless, first night I was really cold in bed, which I mentioned to the room guy next day after he asked how our first night was and when I got back from beach an extra blanket had been put out for me.
Grounds were kept lovely
Pool area did get rather busy and I felt like everyone was on top of each other round pool area, and you had to get up early to get those towels down otherwise you wouldn't get a spot but that can be said for many hotels and it was Easter so maybe hotel was busier.
Nice children's pool
Breakfast was ok, but bit disappointing would have liked more variety of fresh fruit, as everyday seemed the same, tinned pineapple which I thought wasn't good considering you could buy fresh pineapple in the markets , tinned mixed fruit and tinned peaches. The only fresh fruit we ever saw in the time we were there was melon, banana for breakfast. Not a big variety of cereals if that's your thing, I noticed a lot of the elderly people took there own to breakfast , most were repeat visitors. Bacon every other day couple of days we went to breakfast half an hour before breakfast finished and i noticed things were not refilled and if you asked you were told it had finished and there was no more so don't get there too late.All in was ok but could have been so much better. We never ate dinner at the hotel as we like to venture out , as there are some great places to eat in gambia and are extremely reasonably priced, but the buffets looked nice.
Couldnt fault the Staff as they were happy and friendly and always willing to help .
Great beach views from the hotel
All I can say finally is the only things i can fault is breakfast, just needs more variety other than that was a nice hotel for its rating
Hotel in a great spot , but would not stay there again, would probably stay at kairaiba.
