Review:
The Sunbeach Hotel started in 1971 under the name of Sunwing which was one of the Swedish Vingresor's portfolio. This changed in 1999 when Airtours, having acquired Vingresor had it re-named. It was designed by Peter Gibbons and renovated in 1989.

Within the Cape Point area of Gambia there is a mini-market, craft market, the Ocean Bay hotel plus a few small restaurants, exchange bureaus and a tourist market within walking distance.

It is situated in a hoteliers' ideal location, facing the Atlantic Ocean's beach and the river-mouth. It has one of the best beaches of all the resorts, a picturesque curve of fine white sand with thatched umbrella shades.

The main block and leisure areas filled with many a tacky fun facility, and the 200 rooms in distinctive terraces widespread over 8 acres of colourful gardens had become a massively package chain establishment which Airtours / FTi operated for just the 1999-2000 holiday season then it closed down.

Sunbeach Hotel is among the better standard tourist accommodations in Gambia, blending in with its surroundings, bright and colourfully decorated.  It is a good choice for young families because it has superb facilities such a its well laid out pool and play area, with a number of games and activities for kids.

The restaurant serves standard European cuisine; the rooms, though not large, are at ground level only and are comfortably furnished with satellite TV and A/C.
