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.

... is easy, but not much to see. We went to monkey park, which was good and an easy walk (we walked back along the beach, but there using the road). There is much less local character within easy reach compared to the other places we stayed. It is obviously far more touristy here. Bumsters will beg, but not follow you so much. We had them trying to scam us in many ways. Not such a likeable bunch as in Banjul! In Bakau there is croc pool, fishing area ...
... was definitely worthwhile. We did not get to travel into the more scenic and beautiful places as we were under quite hectic time constraints so most of what we saw was city and port.
I had a few problems with my passport initially because I am from South Africa (go figure) but eventually I managed to get a visa and was allowed to go into the country. I won't lie but Gambia, well the places we saw anyway, was ...
