Kombo Beach Hotel, Serrekunda
Disappointing Service--Hotel to Avoid
Service was quite bad. First night the air conditioning did not work (turned out to be condenser, obviously no maintenance check). After breakfast informed front desk. When back at 4 in afternoon, still did not work--maintenance never came. Went back to front desk, as they called maintenance and almost begged them to come over. After 45 minutes, still not there I was switched over. Hotel did nothing to compensate, at almost $300 a night. Hotel is isolated, so if you don't eat there you have to take a cab/taxi. Going to restaurant, they ask for a reservation, making it difficult to eat at the hotel you are paying to stay at (they are selling the table space to others). At the beach, there is a lone guard, who is there to block non-guests from accessing the beach. Meanwhile, while you are lounging on the beach chair you are constantly harassed by people trying to sell you stuff. The lone guard would occasionally walk over and send them away, but they would come right back. It was supposed to be a "private beach" but turned out to be in name only. No care or concern for the people staying at the hotel. Workers were friendly, but that is about it. And then a fairly boring hotel, with little to do, which is sad as it is fairly isolated.

Bad outweighs the good
Hotel staff was slow to respond and I had to make multiple requests for anything. No hot water first day, phone didn't work, tv didn't work, wifi didn't work, safe didn't work. Huge bush rats seen on the property at night. Pool was nice, breakfast was great, beach is nice. Hotel restaurant food is expensive, ladies at towel counter aren't friendly, room keys are difficult to lock and unlock doors.

Very Good8.0
Nice place for a sun vacation
Good: Clean and lately renewed room; very friendly staff; in overall you feel welcome there; Good food Needs improvements: extremely slow service; don't expect much about their rum cocktails (they should change the rum); Annoying local sellers and tour agents (however, in the hotel grounds they are not allowed); Room was cleaned well, but replacement towels, shampoo, toilet paper etc. you had to go and ask yourself (and several times from the several people); They lost my laundry and it took a day continuous asking before they found it again (as a compensation it was not charged).
