The room was clean and breakfast was acceptable. WIFI was available only in pool area but was slow. Hotel is 10 minutes walk to Senegambia street where you can find some nice restaurants. To the beach you need to walk 15 minutes. Close there is the supermarket where you can buy water or food. Beer in the bar costs 100 dalasi. In restaurants on Senegambia street 50 to 60. For coffee in the bar I paid 100 dalasi. The hotel is good if you stay there for night before trips to the Gambia and before leaving. In rooms with the window on the highway could be loud.

This is a Gambian run hotel where we stay each year we visit The Gambia. Lovely staff, very friendly and helpful. We stay in rooms overlooking pool with a shared balcony, rooms are basic but very comfortable. Love the huge beds and always sleep well. Breakfast is good with omelette, eggs and pancakes cooked to order. Lovely fresh bread and the other food available is basic but good. Evening 3 course meal available for 600d each and always very good. We love it here. It's small, gorgeous plants which are well maintained by the gardener. Monkeys occasionally visit, so shut your room door! Very friendly and entertaining to watch. You are in The Gambia, so don't expect it to be like staying in a hotel in Europe! If you want to experience the country, don't expect luxury. This is a third world country and the locals need your support. The locals earn very little money, 60p a day, so show your appreciation for their help and friendliness and tip accordingly! The hotel is a ten minute walk from the beautiful beach. You can find peace or liveliness here. There is good local entertainment in the evening by the pool bar (with great barman!), all drums which are loud, but finish by 8.30. We love it here, support the local Gambians! Don't be rude to the people, smile, be friendly and you'll get the respect back. Hate reading reviews about the AC, the Wi-Fi etc, you are in Gambia.. Enjoy it! The Internet is not great anywhere here, you cannot use your UK phone to call out here, you get what you see. Be happy!

We stayed in this hotel for a week. The hotel location was great however we cpuldnt believe the poor service received by a few members of staff. On one afternoonwe wenr to the pool at 3pm and asked the pool boy for a pool towel. He said sorry we ran out and its our fault for coming to the pool so late. I respondedby saying we are on holiday and can come down to the pool at any time. I then asked him to kindly find any towel for us to sit on. He once again blanked us and said sry he cannot do anything. I proceeded to the go to reception to ask for 2 towels snd the receptionist (a man) kindly went and found 2 towels. On another occassion we went to the bar to ask for 2 water glasses as the housekeeper had removed ours from the room. The bartender responded with sorry we cannot give you any glasses from here. I explained again that we are only asking because the housekeeper had removed the. Eventually after trying to reason with him for a few minutes he reluctantly gave us 2 glases. It felt as if a number of staff at this hotel really didnt want to be there and were only there bevause they had to be. The head waiter was the only person who was friendly and served with a smile. The taxi drivers ourside the hotel did a better job at smiling and greeting guests than hotel staff. We would not visit again for this.

We have just arrived home from an amazing stay at seaview gardens - yes the accommodation is a little basic but this is The Gambia!!!! All the negative reviews on here should be well and truly ignored, if you are expecting luxury DONT visit THE GAMBIA!!! Air con works fine a kettle would be handy tho - yes electricity and hot water are intermittent but this is rectified quickly with generators. The staff are all lovely and cant do enough for you. Victor Fautu and so many others work hard to make your stay memorable - Matta the manager is lovely and nothing was too much trouble. If you need a guide or help then ask someone for babou or abraham who are usually parked outside they will take you anywhere you would like to go. Vineyard restaurant over the road is a must as is African Queen and paradiso on the strip poco loco is a fab beach bar too. Dont be put off by everyone trying to sell you things a polite no is enough. The pool area was clean and breakfast although basic was fine.

Matta we will be in touch to book again for november xx

First of all, the photos of this hotel are dated. It has been redecorated. We loved this hotel, so much do we will be returning. Our room was spacious, extremely large and very comfortable 4 poster bedwith mosquito net. good bathroom and shower, hot water and comfortable lounge area with TV. It was clean and we liked the balcony on the walkway outside our room, overlooking pool. The breakfast was good, and we liked the fact that omelettes, eggs etc were cooked by chef in front of you. We didn’t spend much time at the bar area as we like to go out walking exploring, plus it is much cheaper to eat out. You’ll find bars, shacks and restaurants which are cheap, and offer great food. People and staff very friendly and helpful. Avoid the bumsters, a firm no then ignore them. The new president is trying to make improvements for tourism, one of which is life imprisonments for hassling tourists. So if bothered, tell them your phoning the police. You’ll always be asked if you want a taxi. This is a poor country, they’re trying to make a living! But once they know your face, they leave you alone. Plus we walk everywhere. Beaches are fab! Hotel is ten minute walk to the beach. You can go anywhere local to Kololi, but thecfurthrr you go out of town, you’ll see how the real gsmbusns live. The children love football, mainly kicking a plastic bottle and happy! Schools need writing books and pens/pencils... and all the kids want a football. As with any country, keep your wits about you, be firm but fair, your not in the UK!! We didn’t use the pool at the hotel, just went in the sea in safe areas marked by flags. Lifeguards are on the beach. Fell in love with this place! Staff were happy to change our room on arrival with no problem as we wanted a balcony, for an extra small charge, we upgraded as there for two weeks. Thank you Seaview staff, particularly Matta, for your kindness, friendliness and overall experience.
