Stayed here last week and felt slightly short-changed by The Gambia Experience including this in their 4 Star allocation on arrival deal. The Gambian staff were charming and as a place to hop straight onto the beach it was fine. Our room had a damp smell and the exposed sides of the bed were grubby and stained. The furnishings were tired and the mattresses on the beach beds had marks of too many previous users. As mentioned by a previous reviewer, having to hunt down a cup and saucer virtually every morning began to grate. Was told by one of the staff that it was only her role to put a knife and fork and napkin on the table but not the cup and saucer! Also old brown table table-cloths with previous diner's jam stains off-putting at breakfast. Wanted to upgrade room but would have been charged £12 for using my credit card for the £200 weekly upgrade rate and decided to give it a miss. Food good, good movie channel, most staff great and would not have complained had this been rated as 3 star. Compared with the pristine elegance of the Ocean Bay, this should be downgraded to 3.
