Palm Beach hotel was a basic but nice accomodation. The swimming pool area is nice and the water super fresh. The beach is much nicer than the swimming pool thanks to the breeze from the sea (feels cooler than near the simming pool) and the sunbeds are nice. You can order food from your sunbed. It was great that Palm Beach had security & lifeguards so we felt secure and safe on the beach. Wifi was much better than expected! Only available at reception, swimming pool and on the beach (nice surprise) but it was very stable. Enough to keep in touch with home with Whatsapp (video)calling. The room was big and the hotel made sure we had a quiet room (as required). Airco and water worked fine. The bed was so comfortable we slept like babies the whole week! There was daily cleaning. Breakfast is limited but the coconut porridge and pancakes are very good. It does its job. Food in general is a bit oily (but that's everywhere in Kotu/Kolili) but nice. The portions are big so we did split dishes every time. It's a bit overpriced but as restaurants are not nearby, we stayed there for dinner half of the week. Small super market on the hotel premise but quite overpriced. Tip: buy water at a supermarket on the big road to save money. Same to change money; the hotel is not the best place for it as they will overprice the transaction. Palm Beach Hotel has entertainement every day: during the day at the swimming pool (which is why the beach is quieter too) with bingo's or quizzes, and at night with music and dance performances. The hotel ensures secruity with guards during the whole day & night. Note that the hotel is mainly visited by Dutch people so it feels like a mini Dutch country... Overall we're statisfied with our stay and relaxed the whole week :-) Pluspoint of the hotel are the workers, especially the very friendly and funny Yankuba.

What stands out for us about the Palm Beach hotel is the staff. The hotel is clean, rooms cleaned daily. Breakfast was rather simple yet there was more than enough on offer to please us. Good entertainment in the afternoon & evenings. The staff & management were really friendly & welcoming. I have to say that staff are what make this hotel outstanding. I have to mention Marcel the swimming pool attendant who was the most attentive, friendly pool attendant we've ever met. He goes above and beyond to look after you around the pool, always with a smile on his face. He was good with the children too, getting out some pool games for them or playing a quick game of ping pong or table soccer but never failing to notice when a family arrived around the pool in need of his attention. I also have to mention the security guard Frank who was on duty when we arrived. Amazingly, we bumped into him walking along the beach a few days later on his way into work. He remembered our names, came over to ask how we were enjoying our stay. Such a warm, friendly man who would always greet us with a huge smile & hand shake. Honestly the people in The Gambia are amazing, such a friendly, peaceful people. Palm Beach is directly on the beach so you can remain in the hotel or go & spend the day on the beach. There are some beach bars nearby if you fancy a change of scenery from the hotel but we found the menu (good choice) & food at the hotel really delicious. I would stay at this hotel again definitely.

Stayed for two weeks. Room was spacious enough. Shower was good. Not enough coat hangers in lockable wardrobe. Safe is payable but is located by reception. Staff are great. Marcel the poolman is a diamond. Breakfast is slow. But whose in a rush. Would like to thank staff for help when I had an accident and to two ladies who were on holiday. Beach is good. Sun beds and bar
