We have stayed here four times and love it. The resort is fairly quiet, has a great pool and is near the beach. The majority of the staff are very helpful. The breakfast is a great start to the day. We enjoy our time at the pool, especially aqua aerobics with Max. The rooms could do with updating, pillow protectors and better linen! That said we will be back.

Such a shame!

I can totally see why this hotel gets mixed reviews. 50% of the staff can't do enough for you, the other 50%.... Well, not so much. The all inclusive is very limited with only 3 options available most nights and you will be lucky to get anything above room temperature. Battered fish, chicken, eggplant and rice are the options. The all la carte restaurant on site (The Buddha) is closed so that is not an option. The all inclusive is also let down by the lack of drinks that are available. You can have warm beer, vodka, whisky or a type of wine. No rum, no diet or sugar free drinks, juices like mango, pineapple and orange run out everyday (but not if you are paying for them). When the staff can't be bothered to make you a cocktail they simply tell you they have ran out of a certain ingredient (like lime) then if you ask for a vodka and coke they ask would you like lime???? The pool area is kept immaculate. The spa area is very clean and very cheap. It's around £13 for a 1 hour massage. There were ample sun l oungers and plenty of space around the pool. The beach bar will let you have sugar free drinks if you can prove you are diabetic! This is also a great hotel if you have covid as it cannot spread in this hotel. We had the Gambian national football team in the restaurant with us and 16 of them had tested positive for covid 19 the day before but were still allowed to mix with guests without masks. On your last day you will likely have a night flight. Depending how much you argue depends how much it costs per hour to keep your room on. They try to charge £10 per hour. I thought I got a good deal paying £20 for 5 hours, only to find out 2 other couples didn't pay anything. No doubt this goes straight into the pocket of the bloke on reception. Like I say, a very mixed bag and with a few very small changes this could be a nice hotel. The 4 star rating is pushing it though. It's a middle of the road 3 star. Would I come back???? No, and that's not just because of the hotel. I would definitely return to Gambia but I would stay nearer to the Senegambia strip and not bother with all inclusive because you can eat whatever cuisine you like for hardly any money. For example...in this hotel you get 2 warm local beers for a fiver. On the strip you get 2 imported beers for less than 3 quid. The nightlife is non existent near the hotel so Senegambia is a really good option with plenty of bars, entertainment, nightclubs and a casino.

Finally back to the Gambia

Originally booked a different hotel which we were informed was closed just prior to travel, though it had been closed some time, so we were initially a little reticent about the hotel change. Check in was quick and efficient as was my request to change rooms as the room offered looked onto a wall with only a very partial sea view. The revised room (Block 5) was of a good size and clean with a full sea view. Tea and Coffee making facilities in the room and a shower which took a few days to work out. Air conditioning unit noisy but worked very well. Monkeys and interesting birds can be seen in the hotel and on the beach. The hotel is perfectly situated on a wide beach with safe water for swimming. Someone cleans the beach twice a week of the debris which is washed up. Goats come onto the beach daily and horse riding is available on the beach. Local fisherman (EJ) was interesting and my husband (King of the fishers) enjoyed beach fishing with him many times during the holiday. Ebrahim (Beach attendant) was very helpful and enjoyed chatting. Beach bar staff (Joking and Mariama) deserve a mention for their service as they were always helpful and interesting to talk to, being friendly but never pushy or insistent. The quality and choice of food was sometimes disappointing and often not as hot as I would have liked. The selection of local drinks was okay but premium brands are also available at cost. The cleaning of public areas (outdoor dining area) and reception toilet facilities was lacking at times. The hotel is approx 45mins drive from the airport and local taxis are available to go to a larger area with a good selection of restaurants. Most hotel staff were wearing masks and hand sanitiser was available at the reception and restaurant.
