Nice rooms, small bathroom, very good bed and no mosquitos on the room. The beach is about five minutes walk. On the road to the beach are several restaurants where you can eat and drink At the end of the road is a nice restaurant Poco Loco. Every night music with a DJ or an Band.

Lovely hotel, bright and clean. Breakfast ok by Gambian standards. We had apartment two and it was lovely. The staff were genuinely lovely. The hotel is in a good location close to the beach and a 10 min walk to the strip

We arrived at 08:00 am and our room wasn't ready so the manager upgraded us to an apartment, which was a great start! The apartment is very spacious: kitchen (with cooking facilities and fridge), living room area with 2 sofas and tv, big bedroom with a four poster bed and cupboards, and an en-suite shower and toilet room. The wi-fi...

We wanted somewhere to stay in Kololi having stayed in the Djeliba next door last March 2016. This was similarly priced and recommended by someone last year. The room was clean and plenty of room. The bathroom was also clean and we had hot water every night - unlike the Djeliba. The beds were made every day with a fresh...

Just got back from an 11 night stay in this hotel and was glad to do so. I have been to Gambia on several occasions so fully appreciate that the standard of accommodation is different to that in Asia. There is no fridge, safe deposit box or air con as standard as they had to be paid for on arrival...
