We were very lucky to spend two weeks in 2012 and a further two weeks this year at the Kombo Beach Hotel. While services and facilities are basic, the atmosphere, staff and people make your stay completely unforgettable.
When we went back for a second stay, we found ourselves back as if a whole year had stood still. We saw the same staff, same people and the place had not changes on little bit. It is as amazing as it had been the previous year.
We went straight back to Sailor's a fabulous restaurant, only for the staff to recognise us from the previous year. It was Friday night when great Salsa music starts at around 9.
There are great restaurants all over the area where the hotel is located. A new restaurant called Destiny has just opened, and is unmissable for both food quality and sheer personal and friendly staff.
We had the pleasure of going to the Independence Day Celebrations in Banjul. The sheer colour and activity level is breathtaking.
The Gambia is a great place to visit. Don't expect perfectly manicured gardens and smooth roads, but enjoy the natural feel of a country that believes in 'Nature'.
A short taxi ride away is Sena Gambia where you can eat GREAT food at around £10/£15 per head. Scala comes to mind along with food from almost any country you fancy that day.
The Kombo beach is a clean and tidy hotel with good facilities and great entertainment. There is something going on all the time, yet it is discreet and totally suitable for families with young children. The beach is sandy and reasonably clean.
This holiday is a totally memorable holiday.
