Hotel Palm Beach
COMFORTABLE AND FREINDLY
The lobby, pool area and reception rooms at the Palm Beach looked quite nice and although the rooms were very comfortable and clean they were quite basic, but this is Africa and I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again. I had heard (through trip advisor) that the rooms were noisy at night due to entertainment round the pool, but the entertainment finished at 11'ish so I didn’t find this a problem.
The breakfast was also basic, but tasty. Usually egg, beans, toast, bread and fresh fruit. Freshly cooked pancakes were available each day.
The staff were very pleasant, especially the waiting staff.
Advertised via the travel agent as 3 stars, i wasnt expecting much, but to be honest it wasnt too bad.
This is 3rd world Africa, so was not expecting anything too amazing - the rooms were clean enough, we had a tv, 2 single beds and a cleaner in the room each day.
For me, i dont spend hardly any time in the hotel, so its not an issue what its like but others on package deals spend their whole time at the hotel, so may want more.
Other faciltiies include - money exchange, a pool, 2 bars (one on the beach), 2 restaurants, entertainment every night (which is very basic).
Am sure there was more going on but we did our own thing.
The food is decent enough, slightly more than you'd pay on the Senegambia strip but it was good allbeit it usually took about 45mins for it to arrive after ordering.
Staff are helpful and friendly.
Breakfast (included) was 'ok' - usually some form of egg, toast, sometimme mushrooms, always baked beans and porridge (not mixed together!) and some fruit. it filled me up anyway!
Its right on the beach, so you can walk right through to a sun lounger which you dont pay for.
All in all, not my cup of tea but if it was, am sure it woudl suffice allbeit it very basic.
