Apart from Wonderful staff this place would have received a 2 rating..
It's location makes it so difficult to do anything with the hassle from the Bumsters once you leave the hotel...
Too far from the beach.
Too far from the Strip of Bars and Restaurants.
You'll pay extra for...
Full English Breakfast items such as Bacon.
Air Con (rooms don't even have a fan) which leaves you with little choice to pay the extra £3 a night.
Check these prices before you book as it'll came out of your spending money otherwise.

... t get to pool until aftter 3pm, which meant we could just abouut get a sunbed, but before that it would have been tricky as busy.
Beach has been hit by erosion and has a mini cliff edge (1 metre!), but although it may not look as nice as those in Banjul and Bakau, the sea here was swimmable (although red flag every day we were there) , we wen in every day. My girlf was a bit scared of waves, but I thought it was ruddy brilliant!
We stopped for our mid-day rest at Nyanya's Beach Restaurant in Tanji. By now we were getting to know JJ better and realised how lucky we were to have him as a guide - the number of birds we'd seen so far was phenomenal and birds we'd only hoped to see before arriving in The Gambia were now a reality or real possibilities! I decided to set JJ a challenge and pointed to the the Paradise Flycatcher in our field guide saying how I wanted to see one during the week - ...
