We had a so called superior apartment adjoining the palm fringed beach and were not disappointed. While not being luxurious it was all we could desire with a marvellous view of the beach and the constant sound of the surf. A fantastic get away from it all experience. The hotel ammenities were good and the staff friendly. We went on a number of tours in an official green taxi with "Big Alex" as our guide and found him absolutely reliable and an informative commentator on the local scene. Highly recommended. You'll find him outside the hotel, just ask one of the men in blue who allocate the taxis. Hope you enjoy your holiday! We certainly did!

have just returned from holidaying in the gambia. on arrival at bungalow beach hotel my family were placed in a scruffy room where the air con did not work, three of the lights did not work, the cooker did not work, the mattress and bedding were heavily stained and there were only two beds and we had ordered three. there was no food arrival pack as promised in the brochure. we had a walk around the grounds to find there was only one other guest in the hotel. it was literally a ghost town. we ventured on to the beach and constantly pestered by bumsters. we returned to the hotel and complained about the standard of our room. staff were unfriendly and slow to respond. we were eventually moved to another room which did have three beds still no food arrival pack, cooker not working, strange gas like smell, two lights not working and air con that worked but was so loud it was unbearable. after three requests the food pack did arrive but contained some cream cheese which was clearly off!! I would certainly not recommend this hotel to anyone. it was in a very poor state of repair and clearly the electrics and air con had serious faults. the pool water was extremely dirty certainly not suitable for children. my children were so distressed i requested a flight home. we offered a room at another hotel which was much better but we were made to pay £80 to transfer which i feel was unacceptable. particularly if you have young children please do not book this hotel!!!!
Very comfortable

BB hotel has about 100 2person-apartments, seperate bedroom en kitchenblock for selfservice.
Wonderful and well maintained garden, directly next to the beach with beach Bar. Staff very helpful. A fine hotel for a reasonable price.
