Whilst situated in Kotu, this hotel benefits from a quiet location and has a great, relaxed atmosphere - no Butlins-style entertainment here! The bar and restaurants are situated around the main pool area and serve a range of drinks and have a bar and a la carte menu for food. This was our first visit to the Gambia and, having had a good explore round, were chuffed with ending up in The Bakotu which has a bit more character than some of the larger tourist hotels. The rooms are in carpeted 'bungalow' accommodation with a large main bedroom and separate shower room, set in lovely gardens with resident monkeys. Rooms were cleaned daily by friendly, smiley staff. The Bakotu has a resident guide/fixer for local birdwatching trips and other excursions.
