    A hotel in the middle of jungle


    The Senegambia Beach hotel was a good choice. It is a three start hotel, but services and outside area should give it one more star. The rooms were ordinary; nothing too cosy or luxury, but they had all we needed: beds, bathroom with toilette and good shower, tv, fridge, airconditioning. And two chairs and a table + light outside in the balcony/terrace. It was great to sit there late in the evening and just listen to the animals, mainly birds. The monkeys started their concert in the morning.

    What we liked in this hotel was the fact that we had our own peace. Even though it's a big hotel, it did not consist of one big building. There was a huge garden, a jungle with lot of animals, and low houses built here and there.

    Everything is within a walking distance (in this village); lots of restaurants and night clubs and a couple of minimarkets to buy water etc. A taxi and a guide station are in front of the hotel so you can see other places too easily.

    The hotel had a pool area near the hotel's services and facilities, and another pool almost by the sea accompanied with a nice pool bar. The hotel even had its own part of the sandy beach reserved only for its guests and to keep the active "salesmen" and "saleswomen" away.

    Even if it is safe area, and whole Gambia is safe, it was nice to notice that they care. Security was well taken care of. The number of security officals was big, and evening/nighttime there were always two of them by the entrance gate and several of them by the paths leading to all the hotel houses.

    As we are in Africa - take a torch/flashlight with you. There are quite often power cuts but they are luckily usually very short.

    I would recommend this to anyone; it somehow has a nice feeling and everybody tries his or her best - always smiling.

    One thing worth mentioning - not for people who don't like animals. When you open your room door out you might find a monkey sitting in front of you staring at you.

    Unique Quality: Money can be changed in the reception. In the rooms there are good solid safety deposit boxes you can rent during your stay.

    The above mentioned pool by the sea and the seaside itself were breathtakingly beautiful. The whole hotel area was peaceful, nice and beautiful.

    The service of the staff - I was asking something about hairdressers's services versus those who do hair on the beach - and immediately the young lady said that "just tell your time so I will take you to a good place and negotiate a price and...". It was unbeliavable. And no cost.
    They just try to organise you anything in the world if you ask nicely. Often you don't even ask - they are already organising the issue!

    Directions: At the other end of the Senegambia tourist area's main street "Senegambia Street" (Senegambia Strip). At the opposite of the five star hotel Kairaba Beach. Next to the taxi station and Gambia's officia guide stop.

  • Wretched - Stay In Banjul


    Maybe I'm just not the average tourist, but the Kololi area seemed so hastily put together that the only people that benefit are the locals (I liken it to the Cancun of Africa). In all, this is not a bad thing -- it's their country. However, one would expect better (even in West Africa) in the proscribed "tourist sector". Bumsters are rampant (more so than anywhere else in the country) making it quite uncomfortable to leave the hotel. The women tourists I saw walking alone or in groups were subject to horrendous treatment by the local men.

    Now, on to the hotel. After having a lovely 5 days prior at the Corinthia Atlantic in Banjul, I was excited about seeing the pearl of the country that is Kololi & the Senegambia Hotel. The dissapointment was overwhelming. The room was not as advertised, the lights in the bathroom flickered annoyingly (if working at all) & could not be fixed by the staff. The food was average (though 1 meal at the upscale Flamingo Restaurant was good), the bar was not stocked adequately (even by African standards) & the fellow tourists were dreadfully rude to the staff (referring to them as the "little colored ones"). I was the only American at the hotel at the time.

    The good parts were the entertainment at night & the Monkey Park a short walk away.

    Before I travelled I was wary of Banjul & excited about Kololi. Upon my return my feelings are the exact opposite. I cannot wait to return to Banjul & I could care less to ever see Kololi again.

  • hotel/accomedation


    My stay this year was truly remarkable! you meet so many people at the hotel, old & young!
    I would personally reconmend this hotel because;
    1-very close to major facilities
    2-very friendly
    3-Excellent accomedation and much much more!

    Unique Quality: The hotel host the best animation team of all time i have seen, very entertaining & very serious at their job, if you ask them about me(ask the animation team about mark fowles of McDuff and they will tell you so much about me!)
    THIS IS MY FAMILY BASICALLY, i go everywhere with them!
    the pool is always very clean & very safe.
    The sports are very safe, but are going to be updated! this hotel is based right on the coast line and in the heart of the gambia!
    Overall, a very good place to stay, and probably the best

    Directions: End of Kololi resort area and at the back of the Spy Bar

The Senegambia Hotel

by traveldave

The Senegambia Hotel is the largest hotel in Gambia, with 325 rooms in detached buildings, each identified by the name of a local bird. The hotel buildings are set among 20 acres (eight hectares) of tropical gardens which border the beach.

Rooms are basic but clean, and each has a ceiling fan, telephone, and large patio windows which open onto either a private patio or balcony. Guests can engage in sporting events without leaving the hotel grounds. There are two swimming pools, one of which is near the beach. Other options include tennis, squash, table tennis, miniature golf, and volleyball. And of course there is a large sandy beach on the Atlantic Ocean where guests can swim or sunbathe.

In the evening, there are numerous activities to keep guests amused. The buffet restaurant offers local and international dishes. The Safari Bar is a nice place to relax with a cold drink after a day's activities in the tropical heat and sunshine. Also, the hotel puts on nightly stage shows and African folklore nights.

Beach at Senegambia

by jigeen about Senegambia Beach Hotel

Senegambia is one of the first hotels having been built in The Gambia. I think they had some renovation not long ago. It has given the Senegambia Strip the name, being located right there. It's also on the beach, but this part of the coast suffers from erosion and sandmining, so once in a while they have to reconstruct it with ground from the sea, containing little stones and broken shells. The beach itself is nicer in Kotu or Sanyang ("Paradise Beach")

Senegambia's best hotel!

by fowlezi_lao about Senegambia Beach Hotel

The service of the hotel is the best around, easily, from the room porters, to the recepion, everyone of them are freindly and kind, even when you have a hangova! The hotel facilities are the following:
-Swimming Pool
-Animation Team
-Sports facilities=Volleyball
=Tennis & Squash
=water polo
-Daily entertainment in the evenings
-Restaurant, which changes the theme of the evenng every night
-"British pub", which serves british food with a twist
-Safari bar, which sells anything from cokes, to Tequilla Slammas!
-Beach bar, due to the posistioning of the hotel, directly on the beach

You wouldn't want anything more than whats there to satisfy your needs, but i will report when i come back on this beutiful hotel The animation team has a old Gambian football goalkeeper, called George Lobba, who features on the Playstation game "FIFA 1998-Road to the World Cup" as Gibriel Lobba

A good spot

by JustinJansen about Senegambia

We had a pleasant stay here. Reduced noise, only some performances till acceptable times. Good breakfast and large clean rooms, with splendid beds. Many birds around in the morning, and no strangers on the terrain of the hotel, so a safe feeling when here.
The beach is on the terrain, as several restaurants, bar, medical post, and a tenis court, mini golf and so on.
An Ideal place to stay here! Nice pool, good birds, good breakfast, but expensive dinners, but you can get cheaper and good food on the street near the entrance of the hotel (look for a good restaurant at the restaurant section of my page).
