Bargain winter break
Stayed for a week, which I think about the right time. Not going to slate the hotel as you cannot compare with the likes of Spain or Egypt! This is Gambia and very poor, however the place was clean and the staff couldn't do enough for you! Lots of bars/restaurants nearby and the beach is nice. Yes u do get pestered by locals although a lot of them just want to talk to you, most are wanting to sell you something. We did not feel intimidated at all but it does get a little annoying after a while. Breakfast at the hotel was adequate and the snacks at the petite cafe were great at lunchtime, beer cheaper there than at the shine bar too! Room was in the block and to be fair was fine, roomy and clean! We didn't use ceiling fan as no need to, not baking hot! We looked out onto wasteland and local market which we found really interesting to watch - the real gambia and how the people live. I would recommend the hotel for the price paid it was great just don't expect luxury.

Enjoyed our holiday excellent weather but I must say the the hotel is in desperate need of updating also the drinks prices are nearly double to elsewhere in The Gambia

Gambia - Kotu and kololi resort stay Dec 2015
The Staff are lovely and friendly; the only let down was the front desk manager who was quite authoritative with staff and sometimes guests especially when he was proven to have made booking errors and was unwilling to back down or apologise for any mix ups. The property itself is set out on an expansive size of land set in green vegetation, some unkempt but some nice gardening in the guest areas.The swimming pool is large in space and size. Bungalow rooms were spacious but don't expect modern furnishing. Bedding was clean with a daily fresh supply of towels although make sure you check them first as I did end up with a few stained ones. Hot water is luke warm but bearable for a shower. location is good as at the junction of a main highway and the short road that leads to the beach. Senegambia main strip is a short 10min taxi drive for food/nightlife/shopping/beach or take a stroll down to the beach at the bottom of the road, passing a smattering of craft stalls, restraunts and bars on the way. The local bumpsters can be quite prevalent outside (locals who try to sell you everything and anything) but it goes with the territory in the tourist areas ,pretty much like any other tourist destination where its local people are scraping a living. There is plenty more food, accommodation, and entertainment just a few blocks away from the tourist area which are much cheaper and you have the added realness factor of being amongst the local Gambian culture, food, and entertainment.

Good hotel close to everything
Th hotly is in a good location with bars and restaurants close by and only a short taxi ride to Senegambia. The hotel grounds and pool are lovely, service was good and the breakfast was excellent. The only negative was the loud music around the pool which played non-stop throughout the day from 10am.
