We stayed as a large family back in 2012. All the details here are correct and I remember them well as we had the most amazing time. The staff, bar, food, surroundings, rooms and location were all fantastic. The only niggle we had was a rather stroppy and unhelpful member of the management who was very abrupt with us when...

Rooms are great , spacious and a fantastic bed ! Good breakfast ! Drinks are overpriced compared with local places . Overall hotel is ok shame about the air conditioning which only works in the rooms and not very powerful. Internet is a bit of a disaster even when you pay Surroundings are beautiful !

Great time at this hotel. As a European, you should put the fifth star allure to the side, but for the Gambia have a very well organized team who are trying to lay your pampered. The breakfast was limited but fine for one another. Lumba Saidykhan the girl from the kitchen baking with super much kindness the most delicious eggs... More

How can this be a Sheraton Hotel, is it some other company? Hotel was pleasant, pool was good but this was more 3 star than 5. Disappointing facilities. One lift wasn't working and had obviously not been working for ages. How can Sheraton lend its name to this hotel. Do not expect 5 star. If you are happy with 3... More

It was so nice and hot, there weren't many people around, the staff were great, rooms were nice and large. I would definitely go there again. The pool was nice and big and the beach was just next door.

I have visited this hotel on numerous occasions and always have a pleasurable stay. The charming helpful staff always make this hotel one of my favourite hotels in Africa. The hotel is away from the hustle and bussel of the strip where most tourists on package holidays go , so it makes it an excellent choice for upmarket travellers or... More

Several times we have been a guest at this hotel. We were always very satisfied. Wonderfully quiet outside the tourist area with very friendly stuff. At this hotel is everything possible and nothing is too much. All rooms have a sea view. We will come back for sure !!!

I was in this hotel several years ago when it was the Sheraton. It was totally adequate. Whatever happened since I can't say other than the whole experience reminded me of going to an Eastern European Casino at 3am....a blunt and nasty money extraction experience. Also very run down...avoid, avoid, avoid
