Back again for the umpteenth time for a base for our charity work. It's cheap. it's basic, it's friendly. We had a clean, spacious room with a large en-suite shower & toilet. One or two power failures, of short duration, and a temporary water cut when I was in the shower! The linen was clean and the towels were washed daily. Breakfast was basic but OK. If you want Hilton status then pay Hilton prices! Lots of other charities use Badala as a base, as do ex-pat Gambians returning to visit families.
Sadly, while we were there, many rooms were un-occupied and as a result several of the most experienced staff had been laid off. We were particularly sorry to miss N'yanya and Mariama, but Neneeh was still busy at reception.
We found a couple of taxi drivers who we can reccomend - fair prices, totally reliable - if that's of help to anyone. There's internet available at the nearby Palm Beach hotel, which also has a good bird guide.
Go - meet the people, then go again!More
