Poor 2.0
Not 5 star
The hotel staff didn't pickup any of my calls or emails on the day of arrival so that I could inform them I'll be 1 day late. On arrival I was told as I didn't turn up they gave away my room and also they were demanding payment.They were able to provide me a room but it was not part of the main complex. It seems to be a local apartment block. The bed was awful.

Good and bad.
The location is great with the beach and nearby restaurants,and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The evening food in the restaurant is a buffet and to be avoided,and the food at the poolside is basic.It is the best and most expensive hotel in Gambia.A beer is nearly 4 times dearer than the bars outside.

Exceptional 10.0
I truly enjoyed my stay. The staff was overwhelmingly friendly and did not hesitate to meet my needs. One day I unfortunately left my personal items unsecured including my wallet and passport, the room attendant (Oroline Nyafuny) immediately contacted the house keeping manager (Buba Badjie) who made sure my items were safe, to include all my cash. When I came back there was a note telling me to speak to the security supervisor (Laminators Bajang) who inventoried my items and properly handed them back. Their professionalism was above standard and I felt that my safety and security was a priority.

Carla, us4 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Amazing stay. Good room, well tended hotel grounds, and good beach front with lots of meal options. Fantastic staff. Bakary, one of the Security staff was great at answering all our questions. Breakfast also very good and dinner was quite good and not so expensive. And if you love a room with balcony and good sea view, Room 122 is one of the best! At some point however a cleaner who cleaned the room earlier had taken used towels away forgotten to replace with fresh ones. I noticed this later in the afternoon after a good beachfront stay and i contacted Housekeeping. Two hours later, they were yet to bring the towels and i then contacted Reception. Another two hours and still no response, i went to the reception myself to get the towels. I'm sure this is something that can be easily addressed by Housekeeping. Other than this, a beautiful stay all through. I will come back with friends and family.

Good location, good hotel, rooms are disappointing
Hotel grounds are great Breakfast is good. Staff are v friendly and excellent. Rooms are v outdated, need modernising (tv, furniture beds etc). Rooms are a bit disappointing for what you pay and compared to the rest of the hotel. Great location, lots of activity nearby-food, shops etc.

Enjoyed a lovely to do again
Hotel is great...easy access to the beach...excellent customer service i.e. they’ll go further to make a guest happy. Everything was clean. Especially liked the animals - peacocks and monkeys around. Very relaxing place to be. Only thing is that it got quiet some nights, however the Senegambia strip is only a few mins away for one to have a fun filled night.
