4/10 Fair

The facilities advertised were not available at the hotel, there was no gym, spa or restaurant. We had to go to the Tamala hotel next door to access those facilities. The hotel was clean and well maintained, apart from the pool area which wasn’t cleaned regularly during our 10 day stay.

Nice vibe and location but needs some rennovation
Grounds laid out well and lovely vibe in the neighbouring sister hote which you can access free if charge. Lovely location, beautiful beach and bar area and staff there were brill. Rooms do need modernising which would help improve cleanliness and reception staff not as helpful as ones in bar area.

snotty front desk staff
There were 6 of us girlfriends on a 3 week trip around The Gambia, Senegal and Cape Verde. After a 2 night trip down the River Gambia and very hot 6 hour van ride we arrived to find the hotel we had booked next door was not open due to renovations. I had called in advance to make sure it was open and was told it was, we were sent to Kalimba. When we walked in with our packbacks we were treated like we did not belong. Very uncomfortable and unpleasant. Hotel was nice, my room was lacking soap and shampoo, I had to ask 2 times for it to be delivered. Another friends room had an AC that did not work. Breakfast was nice with lots of options. Another complaint was the male staff constantly asking for our phone numbers to "keep in touch". Very irritating. overall it was a nice hotel.

Petit déjeuner identique (buffet) durant tout le séjour. Venir tôt. Si vous voulez decouvrir la vie gambienne ce n'est pas le bon endroit, bien, mais éloigné de tout. Les taxis stationnés face à l'hôtel sont chers et ils ont l'exclusivité. It's Africa !
