En-suite ✔ A/C ✔ Bar & Restaurant ✔
Review: The Omakan is a secret hideaway located inland, in the very heart of Sukuta village, and away from the tourist resorts but with good transport links. You can easily reach the coastal resorts by car in about 30 minutes.

This boutique hotel has staggeringly luxurious, spacious suites set amongst a beautiful tropical garden with a nice pool to cap it off. A man-made tropical paradise!

Each of the 13 suites has a spacious bathroom, double bedroom, seating area, A/C, minibar, safe, terrace or balcony and sat TV. There is also a lounge bar for guests to mingle.

Review: The visually rather grand Djeliba Hotel is a 3 star accommodation that can be booked in the UK via Thomas Cook tour operator. It's great for families with children as they have a kids' pool, toys as well as a playground so there's much to keep them pre-occupied while you can relax, go to their Moroccan spa, lounge by the pool bar, play sports or go to the gym.

Though not massive, there is a rather spacious central pool with a well-appointed poolside drinks bar and sun loungers scattered around. There are neatly trimmed hedgerows lining some of the equally neat walkways leading to and from some of the ground floor accommodation units. Outside the hotel there are plenty of traveller services such as bureau de change and local tourist taxis.

You can select from standard hotel rooms, to suites, to family apartments. All 3 types accommodation come with an A/C, private shower room with running hot water, king-size, double, twin or a single bed (optional), satellite TV, mini-fridge (optional), Wi-Fi, room service and daily room cleaning. Forget you travel adaptor at home as all the rooms come with a British style 3 pin plug.

The Djeliba is certainly not the best hotel in Gambia, nor the biggest, nor does it serve the greatest food but is clean, well maintained and value for money in a good location.

Ngala Lodge 5 Stars
Location:   On Fajara cliff edge
Rooms: 24 Swimming Pool ✔
En-suite ✔ A/C ✔  Bar & Restaurant ✔
Review: This is truly one of the finest luxury lodges in The Gambia. It was converted by Peter Engels in 1995 from a former colonial mansion and ambassador's private residence into a beautiful and unique boutique place, offering stunning panoramic vistas of the Atlantic and coastal greenery. It is set atop a palm fringed rocky cliff edge in an exclusive part of the Fajara residential area it slopes down to a rather narrow beach at low tide.

Ngala lodge has received Tripadvisor's Certificate of Excellence in the 5* category many times and in 2013 they were awarded a Tripadvisor Travellers Choice Award as the 4th most romantic hotel in Africa. N.B. given the topography the lodge is a child-free zone aimed at relaxation.

The place is equally famed for its fine dining restaurant. Chef, Assan Demba, uses only the freshest local ingredients and the restaurant has the well-deserved distinction of being the best in The Gambia.

All 24 suites come in different class sizes, each had different furnishings, each being unique. There are double or king-size beds, deluxe bathrooms, seating area and option of private dip-pool.
Bamboo Garden Hotel
Location: In Kololi, 100 metres to the sea
Rooms: 22 Swimming Pool
En-suite ✔ A/C ✔ Bar & Restaurant ✔
Wi-Fi ✔ Self-catering ✔
Review: The Bamboo Garden Hotel is a cosy 3 star hotel with a good choice of traveller facilities and services whose room rates are reasonably priced. The 2 storey building is built around an irregular shaped pool while the interior design was inspired by the local Mandingo and Fulani people..

Note that if you go during the low/summer season the place lacks atmosphere such as evening entertainment, however the staff are known to be terrifically helpful and friendly.

Pick from a selection of 20 very clean, spacious deluxe bedroom suites or 2 apartments each with private shower, WC, basin and lots of running hot water. Other comforts include a comfy double bed, cool air-conditioning, mini-fridge as well as a satellite TV, safety deposit box and free internet access.
