Positive Reviews


Excellent location near the sea.

The Gambia is a slim country, and space by the sea is limited. The Kairaba is one of the few hotels that can boast owning some of this prime real estate.


Gardens are beautiful and well-maintained.

Although other aspects of the hotel might have dimmed, the gardens have stayed wonderfully manicured.


Friendly staff has guests coming back year after year.

Many travellers return yearly, due in large part fo the warm welcome they receive.

Negative Reviews


Ebola scare has damped the atmosphere.

With many tourists shying away from the area due to Ebola fears, many services at the hotel have been cut back. Restaurants, for example, may not be open as long as advertised. It is important to know, however, that The Gambia is so far Ebola free.


Renovation needed.

The hotel is getting older and it's showing. While renovations are underway, they are going slowly. Some rooms have been refurbished, and some have not, so make sure to ask before checking in which kind yours is.


Expensive drinks and food.

For what is on offer, some find the food to be too pricey and not at all worth the money.
