Great hotel on the beach with friendly staff. Amazing breakfasts, evening entertainment and cocktail happy hour as the sun sets - perfect! Great for kids as lots to do around the pool and activities for them to take part in as well as a fantastic beach!

Lovely sea view

Posted Jan 2, 2018
Pros: Friendly staff and lovely sea view
Cons: General hygiene. Also the showers didn't drain and this was highly risky on tiled floors. Slippages could lead to a fall.
Location: The Strip in Serrekunda has lovely restaurants. Reo's is highly recommended. A trip to Lamin Lodge and down the river was great.
Reception staff and porters were superb. The breakfast spread was splendid and staff were very friendly. Other restaurants were adequate - flamed grilled chicken at Barracuda restaurant was in fact a stew (appalling). Food and house keeping hygiene need improving. If a napkin falls on the floor staff should give guests a clean one instead of shaking it off and giving it back. Clean table runners for each new service is required not one that has been used. Appalled that our room was cleaned on day of checking out but sheets weren't even changed. Hope this was checked and changed before new guests arrival.

Excellent Hotel next to the Beach

Posted Dec 19, 2016 on Hotels
The staff were really friendly, efficient and polite. There was an excellent range of food and night entertainment. The price for food and drinks were really affordable. The beach was clean and right next to the hotel facilities and sun loungers. The pool is far too small for the size of hotel and URGENT need of upgrading. The air conditioning extractor boxes/fans should be placed in the correct bedroom area, as all we could hear was the next door neighbours fan ALL night long - we did not have our on!!

Dear guest, glad to know you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your comments, we are working on plans to recreate our pool area over by latest 2018 and we started changing the position of the AC units during summer 2016. Unfortunately the room you were staying had not been changed. We look forward welcoming you again to Kombo Beach.

Nicely situated on the beech.

Posted Nov 28, 2016 on Hotels
The hotel is situated very well on the beach within walking distance of a few restaurants and places to have a drink. All food we ate around the complex was lovely. The hotel breakfast was very nice also. Great waitresses and staff were seen all round the complex. Very friendly and eager to please (for a small tip). Weill definitely be back.

Nice Beach,

Posted Nov 23, 2016 on Hotels
Hotel is located on one of the nicer beaches in the Gambia. Breakfast on offer is sufficient Swimming pool is very small for the size of the hotel. I would recommend staying closer to or in Senegambia area as offers more places to visit of an evening.

Bearing in mind this is Gambia, it was a decent all-round hotel.

Nice hotel right on the beach

Posted Apr 30, 2016
We had nice experience on our stay at this hotel. We knew before we went that it is a little dated, and not a brand new bright and shiny place to stay. We went to stay there with some friends for the simple reason of getting a good suntan. This was easily achieved, of course. It suited us fine, and we hardly had a problem with our stay there. The only problem we had was with the very poor internet facility or rather lack of it. We went for walks, along the beaches, and around the local area. We ate at the various restaurants at the hotel, and along the beach, so did not venture out further afield. We all had a great time and would certainly go back to the Kombo beach hotel again.

Great experience!

Posted Apr 10, 2016
Our family had a great time at Kombo Beach! Hotel staff were warm, welcoming and helpful. The half board is an excellent choice, especially with children. Daily activities and evening music and shows were a delightful bonus. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you!

Lovely hotel bang on the beach !

Posted Mar 22, 2016
Pros: Fairly quiet and bang on the beach and convenient for the strip but far enough away so still very relaxing.
Cons: Standard of rooms needs updating very soon.
Location: Great location for a walk or cab to the strip for a large variety of bars/restaurants etc etc. Fantastic beach setting with wall to wall sunshine.
Lovely hotel on clean sandy beach which stretches for miles ! Hotel and rooms clean & tidy but a bit tired but the staff all try hard. Great position to walk out to bars and restaurants and/or get cab again to very good local bars/restaurants with live bands etc. Certainly a good find and we will return. You need to get into the Gambian way of life though and accept you're in a Third World country ! But, plenty of good food, drink, sun, sea etc etc.
