We stayed at Senegambia Hotel at the end of November 2010. The hotel was good, rooms a bit tired but clean. Towels were changed every day. The hotel grounds were large and had monkeys running around which were very entertaining. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. The entertainment at night was very African!
We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis, as advised by tripadvisor members, which was a good idea. The breakfast was fine and we did eat a couple of nights at the hotel and it was fine. There were so many restaurants to choose from just outside hotel, along the strip, so it never got boring.
We contacted a charity, Goal for The Gambia, before we went on holiday. We met Sandy who runs the charity and we had a lovely day with her and her team visiting two schools in Basori village. It was one of the best days of the holiday, the children were lovely and although they didn’t have very much, they were always happy and smiling. They were very grateful for the books, pencils and footballs that we took. If a child doesn’t have a notebook or pencil, they cannot go to school. Everyone should have this experience, they will not be disappointed.
