The place I always look forward to returning to ! After a two year gap due to Covid ,this break felt even more special .A very well run place with everything you need to enjoy your holiday. Friendly and helpful staff in a very safe environment . Returning again in November.
I was fortune enough to stay at Luigi’s for 3 months, January through to the beginning of April. A very warm welcome from Julie & Luigi, home from home. As usual it was up to their very high standards, Fantastic staff always friendly and helpful. My room was cleaned daily and the bedding changed every few days. Julie & Luigi run a tight & efficient ship and always treat their staff very well, this is why most of the staff have been with them for many years. I wouldn't normally comment on other posts but feel I have to comment on the post from Ms B J Fields. I witnessed how rude this lady was to Julie & the staff & how she was so drunk she couldn't walk. She did smoke in her room & it was not able to be used for a few days, there was a large communal balcony right outside her room. I am booked to return later this year & look forward to another great holiday with great hosts. Donna…
Absolutely fantastic stay a great base if you want to explore as it is quite central, beach just a few steps away all in all a very pleasant experience. Julie and Luigi run a very tight ship the staff are all very friendly, courteous and efficient, any choice of breakfast available and lunch dinner also from an extensive menu. Having stayed at many so called 5 star hotels this is definitely the place to be would not consider anywhere else and will be returning. Rooms immaculate and clean bed linen changed on a regular basis, definitely worth a try as an alternative. Luigis Complex is extremely good value for money, book early to secure your dates as it is very popular.
Racist and rude owner. All service disappeared when my Gambian fiance turned up to see if I was safe. I thi k I've said enough and don't wish to type 200 characters. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
I had been to The Gambia many times before but luiges was my favourite place to stay , could not fault the complex and also the staff, so much I stayed for 6 and a half months , a Special thanks to Chloe who was so helpful and informative, when I do go back I hope to stay there but it is usually fully booked ,miss all of you .

I previously wrote a review for Luigis in December and then went on to stay here for a further 8 months so I think that more than indicates my satisfaction with this place. Very well managed in a prime beach location and faultless. I have to particularly mention Chloe one of the managers who went beyond the call of duty in helping guests during these difficult covid times . Security ,housekeeping and everything else that matters is faultless. I will not hesitate to return. Thank you to all the staff for making a long stay so pleasurable.
A place where everything works as it should from the excellent customer service, amazing food, 24 hour electricity, hot water, Coolly aired balconies and homely feeling. This is my fourth stay here and I notice additions every time I come over from the array of tropical flowers and fruit trees to its well equipped leisure facilities and not to forget the consistency of its authentic pizzas

We have recently returned to UK after just the most fabulous 9 week stay at Luigis boutique hotel. The owners Julie and Luigis live on site and with their extremely well trained lovely smiley staff just make the experience so personal and comfortable. The rooms are spotlessly clean and spacious with all mod cons excellent wifi a-c, flat screen TVs in bedroom and sitting room. The gardens and pool are very scenic private and protected from sea breezes. The hotel is self catering or B&B. Just fantastic value in fact I gather Luigis recently won the Africa bargain hotel of the year. The location is also spot on. Its near the end of a tarmac no through road which terminates at the beach. The hotel is literally 50 metres from the beach. Luigis restaurant is also very good , and a popular ‘treat’ restaurant for locals. There are a variety of other good quality restaurants and bars within safe easy walking distance. We had just such a lovely escape from (covid) UK , staying from Jan 13 to March 15th , so much so that we have already booked to stay at Luigis again from December2021 to February 2021. I cannot commend Luigis highly enough ......Nick Suffolk …
Well this year was a very different experience travelling to Gambia and fortunately after many false starts I arrived at Banjul airport to see the lovely smiling Kebba ready to take us to Luigi’s. What a fantastic holiday, much fewer regular guests but there were enough guests to create a fantastic atmosphere, in fact we all got to know each other better and shared many a jovial evening. Julie was a star and went over and above to make our holiday an amazing experience as she appreciated the effort everyone made to get there. We celebrated a few birthdays, mine, Sue’s, Linda’s, Julie’s and Bob’s and Julie made each occasion special. Caz & Dennis celebrated their Golden wedding & hosted a party & Julie pulled out all stops & the room was decorated beautifully and the food amazing. Many a night was spent laughing and dancing after a good meal at Luigi’s, worry not photos will not be shared. Our flights were cancelled and Julie & Chlo were awesome in helping us rebook flights, sort out paperwork, advise on Covid tests, bank visits etc. Without their support it would have been much more difficult time. We were fortunate enough to have a new puppy at Luigi’s a lovely lady called Lillie who we all fell in love with & I think it was mutual. Due to cancelled flights I worked remotely at Luigi’s and Julie was fab letting me use the office and helping with any additional needs I had. I was meant to be there for 73 days but stayed for 91 days and I can say that it was a much needed break made extra special by the Luigi Party Faithful, you know who you are. Julie even invited us all to join her the last Sunday we were all there for a wonderful roast beef lunch & lovely puddings. If you can book into Luigi’s it is the best place in the Gambia, you are treated as an individual and it make you feel valued. Thank you Julie and team you are all awesome…
