6/10 Good

We chose this property because of the swim up pool and that was very nice indeed. However we are accustomed of clorinated water and our pool was not also our pumps were also not working to circulate the water either. The property is beautiful though the rooms need to be updated. However, the most unfortunate part of our stay was the dining experience. While the servers are excellent and very attentive I was served undercooked chicken for lunch and my wife got food poisoning from breakfast (we think it was the bacon, that was the only thing I did not have and in retrospect it did not look very fresh). For both incidents we received a very friendly apology. We did not ask as it is not our custom but would recommend that the hotel offer a better response to such incidents, like some type of compensation.

Comfy oasis in Banjul
The room was clean but the air-conditioning needs service. The place is secure but on the beach you have to deal with the overly friendly guys proposing horse rides, juice, telling you to support the locals and not listen to what the hotel told you. The hotel says nothing about the beach vendors by the way. But for a peaceful and restful stay with a clean beach and gentle sea-this hotel does the job. The breakfast could do with some creativity but again the few things they do are good. So less is more. The restaurant is 7-8/10 but they are a little slow so order ahead, go for a walk and your food will be ready. Alternatively, check out the Italian resto in front of the hotel. Pool is clean with ample space for laps and faces the ocean. Great after a long day of driving and negotiating to get on the ferry to Banjul. Btw, for the ferry, buy a ticket for your car and your passenger and calmly rebuff offers to bump you up in the queue unless you are in a hurry and then wait for the Gambian charm.

Good location, very clean, friendly staff
Very good service but it was low season (I was there for work) so not everything was open and the menu at the restaurant was restricted. Most of the staff were lovely and helpful. A power cut on my first night from a thunderstorm was acknowledged but not really addressed until I insisted on moving rooms because my air con really didn't work properly. Signs round the pools when they are being cleaned to indicate how long you cannot use them for would be helpful. My room was excellent and very clean, the swim-up rooms are lovely. Very good location (I was working in Banjul city centre) and staff helped with arranging taxis and buying water.
