I got moved from one room to the next; I was told they were fully occupied and had to move to another hotel.. came back the next day and the security asked me why I left my room? He informed me that no one was there.. I complained and got another room facing.. This room was apparently the staff's smoking spot so I could not have open my curtains or door without having gardeners security etc approaching me. Such a hassle... Addresed the owner (an elderly swedish women), she did not apologize or acknowledged the bad service or lack of.. the only thing she said was "this is Gambia, get used to it". Only thing good is that the pool is closed and only for guests.. Good luck staying here! Im not going back... oh, and the bartenders/waiters pull you aside pressuring you for money, telling you all these bad stories about their family etc... normally they are called dumpsters and trick tourists on the street, but Bakotu hires them to work for them.
