Review:
As you approach the Bijilo Beach Hotel's road entrance from the Bertil Harding Highway (Kombo Coastal Road) you are immediately struck by the retreat's relative seclusion and by how unimposing the main entrance is. However, you are soon impressed as you pass through the small reception and out onto the main complex. To your left and right are grand, imposing room blocks offering unsurpassed vistas of the Atlantic beach and ocean. The beach area itself is clean and wide with a variety of rhun palms and coconut trees at the front end.

There is a fairly large, clean, irregularly shaped swimming pool at the centre of the sloping lawns and walkways. There is no lack of sunbathing terraces whether you choose to use a deckchair on the paved areas or sun loungers on the cool grass.

The beach side Ocean Bay restaurant is highly recommended. For starters it is semi-enclosed and there are large louvered windows on the ocean side allowing you plenty of sea breezes as you enjoy a full and wide menu which is generous with seafood dishes. There is also the Clay Roof Restaurant with its intimate atmosphere overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and serving a wide variety of tasty international cuisine and Gambian specials. Vegetarian options are available on request.

The accommodation suites are well furnished, clean as well as providing all the facilities you would expect from a beach hotel in Banjul. The staff are particularly attentive your every requirement, even willing to do small errands for you so you don't have to disrupt any minute of your peaceful, relaxing vacation.

The Bijilo area itself is situated away from the tourist hotspot of Kololi (less than 7 minutes drive) so there is very little night life or other amenities nearby. This however, is easily overcome as there are green tourist taxis parked within the hotel's car park and their rates are published at the reception desk.

The apartment rooms at Bijilo Beach Hotel are especially suited for families.
