Reception desk & tourist information

The African Village Hotel is a budget priced tourist hotel which began life as a nightspot called Club 98. It was converted in 1974 into 28 rooms, increased to 43 in 1975 and rebuilt in 1979. It now has just over 70 rooms for tourists set in what is aimed to be in the style of a village with mod cons in the Bakau resort of The Gambia.

As you enter the small, bustling complex there is an 85 metre walk which leads you past a mini-market and sleeping blocks to the swimming pool which is the centre piece of the accommodation.

Resembling more of a shallow moat it has a man-made island in the centre upon which the thatched bar is built around a coconut palm.

The gardened main walkway continues between offices and an entertainment area and directly through the shaded, airy Atlantic Restaurant. From its pathway, steps drop down to the artificial beach which is a rectangle of sand on pillars above the rocky cliff of Bakau mostly suited for sunbathing.

The standard accommodation is compact and simply furnished. Most are low or round huts, with thin twin mattresses on concrete plinths. Sea view accommodation and smaller units are available without a local supplement.

Available board bases as Bed and Breakfast or Half Board. All supplements and upgrades are per person per night, based on twin occupancy.
