Sunset Beach Hotel Kotu

We booked to return to Sunset beach in November this year.

We have just received an email from Thomas Cook to say they have had to change us to Senegambia Beach as Sunset is no longer available for the dates we booked.

We actually booked back in March.

I have been on Thomas cook website and found out the reason they have changed us.

Sunset have actually gone to All Inclusive from November.

Really dissapointed as we love Sunset but don't want all inclusive.

Anyone else had the same

If you think it's too much, then it is. Love Gambia but would not pay stupid prices to go there. Vote with your feet. AI doesn't go well in Gambia

Also a great place for chilling,i have a compound but i do go a few times to Sunset ,just buy a day ticket that gives you access to most things at the hotel.....100 dals a day.

My daughters school mates dad i believe owns it.

HI, I don't think Senegambia will follow as there is only so much call for all inc in TG. The same people, are I believe, also owners of the new hotel being built by Solomon's beach bar. I would think it is more a case of spreading their appeal and offering something different rather than chasing a limited number of guests for b&b or half board.

The new hotel we hear will be upmarket so they are hedging their bets.

Hi Tigers, the size of Sunset means it is a better bet for all inc as far as the owners and TC are concerned as they still have rooms available for the first weeks in November. If they cannot fill the 72 room Sunset Beach then there is no way they could make a go of it in Senegambia. After all if they don't fill it they cannot make the numbers up with b&b or half board.
