Roc Heights Lodge
A haven of peace in bustling Bakau
My first time at Roc Heights and I will definitely go again next time I am in Gambia. Omar and his team ensured that everything was done to keep me happy in the hotel and safe outside as a solo woman. In a quiet location away from the tourists but near enough to the beach for a short wander, the hotel is a haven of peace with delightful gardens either to eat breakfast of just sit and relax after a day's work. Most of the guests are working so the place is empty during the day. I didn't try the swimming pool and I didn't see anyone else try it either. There is definitely an old fashioned country house party feel about the hotel with all guests friendly to each other at breakfast. Wi fi not bad but a local SIM card with data would be better.

A cozy lodge with great staff
Banjul is a complicated place for hotel selection. You either have high fancy tourist resorts or "not so fancy" lodges... There isn't a "business-style" hotel. Roc Heights falls into the second category. It's quite a nice and cozy lodge, but don't expect any "luxuries". Breakfast is quite simple, but it will get you on the road. Rooms are very spacious, but again, nothing really "sophisticated". But one thing for sure is unbeatable.. staff friendliness. Everyone at Roc Heights is great! Very friendly people. If you're staying for many days, I would suggest to stay business days here, and then go for the "fancy hotels" just for the weekend. Like most lodges, you don't have a traditional reception, and there is no food at the hotel (except for breakfast). They order from surrounding restaurants. You have interesting restaurants at walking distance, but you have to face 500m of dirt/sand road, so avoid classy shows.

Comfortable stay
I only stayed two-nights in the hotel. Room was comfy and spacious. AC is a bit old but works fine. Breakfast was fine but no extra were proposed (e.g fried eggs). If you travel for business for a week, I would not recommend it particularly as it is a bit far away from everything.
