  • 8.0.Very Good

    Calm, quiet and relaxing

    Sand Beach Hotel is quiet, spacious, and very relaxing – the photos do not really do it justice. There’s a genuine African feeling, it’s not just an American style hotel. The large pool is kept clean and has plenty of space and loungers around it. It was never even slightly crowded – and lovely for swimming. Our villa was spacious with bedroom, bathroom, and a lounge area with settee bed and alcove with sink. Furniture and fittings are more safari camp than luxury. Some villas have a pleasant view over the pool area, but none has a sea view. No toiletries were provided , except a bar of soap. In general, you have to ask for what you want, because things are not provided as standard, and staff seem not to notice if things are missing or broken. The staff were generally friendly ( a little too friendly at times), helpful and willing, but you have to ask. Breakfast was poor quality, with little choice, often missing essential items from the self-service tables. We had to ask for serviettes (napkins) every day. Nicely cooked eggs, sausage etc, but no menu to muse over. Not good value for money (breakfast was included in the room rate, which is relatively high for the area). The restaurant is very laid back, excellent tasting food, some surprises, and it was usually very good. Reasonably priced, good value compared with local restaurants. The spa treatments were excellent. The practitioner seemed to have been trained to a very good standard.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Die sogenannten Villen sind in einem frustrierenden Zustand, Bettlampen funktionieren nicht und werden auch nicht repariert, die Küchen sind nicht eingerichtet, kein Geschirr, keine Kochstelle, keine Toepfe, nichts - eine reine Farce! Beschwerden beim Personsal werden mit Schulterzucken entgegengenommen, man würde es weiterleiten, aber es würde sich nichts ändern. Der Besitzer oder Leasingnehmer würde Nichts investieren. Tatsächlich wirkt alles an dem Hotel vernachlässigt und leicht verrottet, selbst der Strandbereich sieht aus wie ein Niemandsland mit kaputten Schirmen und Liegen. Das Personal ist ok und bemüht! Wer ein Hostel sucht oder eine Basisabsteige, der ist mit dem Sand Beach gut bedient, dann muss aber auch das Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis stimmen. Mehr als 20 Euro pro Nacht sind hier nicht angebracht. Wenn Expedia solche Hotels mit 60-80 Euro pro Nacht verkauft, so sehe ich das als eine Unverschämtheit und Kunden-Abzockerei an! Ich reise seit 30 Jahren nach Gambia, so viele frustrierte Kunden, die schnell wieder auschecken habe ich noch nie gesehen!
