                                                I would like to start by saying that i have stayed here 3 times now and to me this place feels like home. Rose and Mustafa are so accomodating that i couldnt ask for more. There are many great things about this place.... The gorgeous deep pool, the staff, private garden area at back of the apartments, kitchen facilites and fridge (i especially like this part because it enables me to get african ingredients from local markets not far away and experiment cooking, something i cant do at many other places) Its bright clean and airy and i guarantee this is perfect for any length stay in gambia. Here you can have the choice to be quiet and private or to join in with other members staying there. Rose and Mustafa went out of their way to make all of my stays there really enjoyable. My Partner and i will always go back to the same place. Brooke Allman-Camara

                                                Highly enjoyable stay

                                                4 of 5
                                                We stayed for four weeks in January 2014. Our experience was mainly positive. It started upon arrival when we saw the bougainvilla paint the outside wall in purple flowers. The walled garden housed a variety of birds such as various types of doves, the splendid sunbird and the beautiful sunbird and two types of flycatchers. We even spotted a Klaas' Cuckoo and a woodpecker here once. The rooms were spacious, the beds aren't perfect but no worse than an average hotel. We also enjoyed the spacious terrace, where we spent most of our time relaxing and had breakfast and dinner. Although the Senegambia Strip with its restaurants is only a short walk or taxi drive away we opted to cook our own food and very much enjoyed visiting the local shops and market for bread, vegetables, rice and other necessities. It's Africa and power outage is to be expected. Fortunately, the Yellow Apartments has its own generator. While it does work, it makes a lot of noise, which can be a inconvenience if you occupy the unit next to it. Also, it helps to make Lamin aware of any issues that may arise. The local caretaker hardly speaks any English. One call to Lamin, however, and problems will be solved on short notice. We very much enjoyed our stay and will be happy to return in the future.
