The Laico Atlantic Hotel and Resort was Banjul resort's
first in time and class. It is sited on the
beach on an old colonial thoroughfare originally called
The current, very delightful edifice was designed
Mexican Louis von Waberer, built by Balfour Beatty,
opened in 1979 and operated until 1994 by the British
promoters, Caledonian Hotel Management.
From 1999 it has was managed by the international
chain, Corinthia Group (CHI Hotels & Resorts)
until August 2009 when it changed ownership to the
LAICO Resorts. In the early part 2000 the
Maltese based chain made large investments
in extensive upgrading. Starting with a colossal arch;
repainted facade in pleasant cream and maroon and
in the excellent
Apollo Fitness Centre.
As you enter the front gate there is a luxuriant,
spacious and welcoming front area. To your left is
a lush 'Rose Garden' filled with mostly bamboo, young
palms and trees. To your right is an illuminated garden
(with its unsecured George lll cannon). The drive-through
veranda leads onto a curved central courtyard where
you will find an extensive reception desk by any standard,
business centre equipped with photocopier, fax and
The reception lounge bends left past the boutique,
hairdresser's and the Leisure Centre. To your right
is the sophisticated Dunda ('High Life') à la carte
Restaurant and the Bendula ('Meeting Place') Bar.
Arching on round these, the lounge bar and boutiques.
This row then opens into the Katcha Dula Bar and Bantaba
Restaurant which is adjoined by an entertainment area.
Their long, curved, louvered covered walls lead on
to the garden, sunchairs and locally produced thatched
parasols around the bean shaped swimming pool. A number
of dining services encircle the pool.
Towards the ocean is an open-air cafe set under the
tamarisks and rhuns, and there is also a beach barbecue.
The 204 rooms and suites make up the 3 wings of the
hotel's star shaped storey buildings each serviced
by a spiral staircase. Accommodation furnishings are
in cool shades with mid-brown, wooden fitted wardrobes,
drawers and a dressing table, double, twin or single
beds and a balcony protruding from the bedrooms.
Due to the accommodation's Banjul location in the
quiet city there is little in the way of night life.
However, taxis parked nearby can, in just 25 minutes
or so, take you to the much livelier Senegambia hotel
area in the Kololi resort.
