Review: Since its opening in the early 1980s on the tourist strip, adjoing the Kairaba, the gigantic seafront Senegambia Hotel has become a popular, family-friendly place that's more value for money than its neigbour.

It has a long choice of individual and shared visitor facilities and services and a satisfactory range of en-suite room types: Standard, (sleeps 2 and up to 3 with extra bed), Studios and Family Apartments. TIP: The Standard Rooms are quieter than the deluxe rooms in the main structure. There are baby cots available and there is wheelchair friendly access throughout the building complex.

The resort also has several pools with a children's section, several bars and restaurants, a conference hall, hair dressing parlour, a small cinema, live nightly entertainment, a car hire service, boutiques, a squash and tennis court and other sporting activities as well as offering guided bird watching trips.

Rooms: 6 Swimming Pool
En-suite ✔ A/C ✔ Bar & Restaurant ✔

Review: This is yet another distinctive place to stay on the Gambian coast. An ultra-trendy contemporary look boutique hotel with sea views from each unit. It has 5 double bedrooms and 1 suite with 2 bedrooms; all have their own wash room with toilet and basin, air-conditioning, security safe, private balcony, ceiling fan, LCD TV, minibar and of course room service.

The facade grounds to the Atlantic Ocean are mostly carpeted by a smart manicured lawn with a large pool, deckchairs, and well-positioned arbour style grass. There is constant running hot water, solar power and a standby generator. Given its tucked away, serene location you'll be glad they provide transfers from Banjul Airport, though it's payable as an extra.
