    Good hotel on the beach

    The hotel is situated in a wonderful setting by the beach, with pleasant breeze from the sea and beautiful views. The swimming pool is nice allowing us to enjoy the scenery - and the sunset.

    Hotel needs maintenance

    All the staff were great! The hotel needs maintenance - shower door handle was dangling and only half screwed on; shower head was clogged and bracket was very loose and tricky to get the head to stay in place; drain was very slow and water flooded the floor; telephone rang and you could hear person calling but they could not hear you and even though I reported it to the front desk it was never fixed; sofa and chairs in the room were worn and stained; the MEMORY FOAM BED that was touted in the advertisement was non existent and instead I got a ROCK-HARD SPRING MATTRESS; room cleaning was minimal until I complained and then was only good for one day; the safe in the room that they advertise costs an additional fee for the staff to program for use (they just let you put in your own code to open). The breakfast buffet is very nice and the food is good. The bar and grill has very good food and prices are very reasonable. The beach is very close, security is good, the pool is shallow but very clean, and the grounds of the hotel are pretty and well maintained. Again, the staff are very nice and helpful and give grade A service on the whole. However, due to the condition of the room and the horrible bed, I do not think I would consider staying here again.

    Just relax

    I had a wonderful 10-day stay. A 10-15 minute taxi ride from downtown Banjul and about 20 minutes from the airport. Taxi service was readily available. The property was well-kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The weather was great. I prefer the serenity of the off-season. Access to the cafe, bar, and mini-mart for postcards and stamps was a plus. WIFI worked well in the lobby. I will definitely stay here again.

    Air Conditioning

    It is very deceiving on the web site about the air conditioning, it leads you to believe that the room comes with air, but when you check in they tell you that you have to pay extra for it.

    Just ok

    I traveled with my kid and loved their kiddie pool. I love the bungalow rooms , was clean , comfy bed , just the bathroom is too small and the shower position is bad. The server forgot to serve one of my orders at the restaurant. Breakfast was a bit boring and someone who prepared the watermelon slices probably didn’t wash his hands as it tasted perfume .

    Night was charged twice

    I Have made a reservation for 2 nights, but when I arrived, hotel management informed me that the 2nd night was not booked, and hotel was full. I had to book myself another accomodation without any help, and they charged me for that 2nd night. Besides, the wifi connection is poor and no wifi in the rooms

    What a beautiful stay my partner and I had there. The setting is like a Tropical Oasis, the rooms are clean, the food delicious and the staff helpful and friendly. Not to mention transport is easy to get and there are some great bars and restaurants within reasonable distance. Thanks Sunset for making our stay enjoyable.
