we were three years ago stayed here before we have talked with a number of guests. Therefore, that one always' politically correct 'wishes, because it'Africa' is, the service. It is not a really good hotel. No towels one day (the maid was offended, when I pointed out to you), the other day no shampoo, the third day the or the body lotion. You do not, of course, to survive, but we paid for this service. And not much. It is an impertinence, the breakfast (b …  read hotel review

The hotel is approximately 25-years-old and we have already been on several occasions there, the last time a year ago. Unfortunately, we had to this year say, that it in every corner and ends coarse shortcomings and a generalsanierung urgently is pending. Especially, if one considers, this is a 5 star hotel should be, in our opinion are less than 3 nor appropriate. Especially impressed us again and again the peace and quiet and the broadness of the loatio …  read hotel review

Set out in blocks, not overlooked, this sprawling hotel resort is a little piece of colonial heaven. Everywhere is clean and tidy, and has a friendly atmosphere from the moment you are greeted at reception. There are two types of board. B&B and half board. We opted for the B&B option as we wanted to experience the local cuisine. The hotel is ideally based at the bottom of the `strip`. read hotel review

    The room was faultless. Twin beds, large wrap around balcony and great views. TV had several English channel and one dedicated to football. There was a walk in shower, bath with shower, safe, mini fridge, and tea and coffee making replenished daily. Air con was quiet and effective.

    You couldn`t fault the effort that the staff make to enhance your stay. Each and everyone of them did that little bit extra. We had a very diligent cleaner called Alf, who looked after our superior deluxe room. Well worth the upgrade as the wrap around balcony (Room 320) had great views of the immaculate gardens and the sea. We were originally put in the `Thomas Cook` block which overlooked the car park. It didn`t have a terrace or balcony, and directly outside was a high brick wall. After pestering the reception staff for several days, we were granted our wish and moved. The cost of the upgrade was £25 per night.

  • Location
    5.0

    A great beach front location, although the stretch of beach directly outside the hotel has become eroded through poor maintenance. A short stroll either side of the hotel, you will be greeted by clean soft sand. All your basic needs are catered for on the strip with several convenience stores dotted around. Many restaurants and bars to choose from, all very reasonably priced. directly outside the hotel is a large hut. This houses the local Gambian tour guides. We hired a guide and a taxi for half a day to go to the Serekunda craft market and a local school to drop off supplies. This cost us £20, and was well worth it. Step outside your comfort zone, and you will experience the real Gambia. A very safe environment, and everyone has a big smile on their face.

    There wasn`t an entertainment team, nor was there music blasting out to spoil your relaxation. Wifi could be connected to in reception and around the pool. There is a different access code for each. Beach towels were provided on production of a towel card, and plenty of free sunbeds were available throughout the day. not the normal bun fight to get one. The pool was warm, clean and inviting, and a locker room and showers provided.

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    A vast array of food on offer for breakfast. A full English if you desired, along with a large selection of continental food. An egg station cooked fresh omelettes etc with fruit and cereal and a selection of pastries. You could have afternoon tea and cake in the restaurant from 4pm. A basic selection of food was served by the pool, all very reasonably priced and well cooked and presented. Various happy hours around the different bars take place from 6pm until midnight, with live entertainment provided.
