It is the second time that i have stayed at the Kombo beach, the only thing that i agree with reading other reviews is the towell size in the bathrooms and people trying to get money from you for one reason or another. Being an avid traveller i find this in most places in the world apart from America & Europe where the prices are fixed high to compensate for high taxes and the "face" of living in the Western world.
The Kombo hotel has the best team of staff that i have met in any hotel in Africa, the rooms are of good size, not like the "cupboards" on offer at the Dunes along the coast.
and various other hotels in the gambia. The rooms are cleaned daily and the room staff very attentive to any needs or demands. The restaurant breakfast offers an array of foods so you have a good start to the day. The hotel is right on the beach with excellent security & helpful staff. The reception staff cant do enough for you upon request to make your stay the best ever.
If you are looking for a "Costa" type holiday then this might be a culture shock for you. But a fantastic experience with the nicest people i have met on this planet.
The Kombo is a GREAT place to stay for a medioka price. You pay for what you get in Africa.
The hotel is central for everything, Banjul & James Island to your left and the popular night life of the Senegambia strip on your right. Go straight ahead to Serrekunda & Brikkhama and further, then you will see real culture. It has really made me appreciate how we live in our modern western world.
The Kombo Beach Hotel has all modern facilities and i would not hesitate to stay in this hotel year after year.
