A little tired, but as good as you're going to get in Gambia I would assume. Staff were super friendly and always willing to help though.

4 day stay at Coral Beach
The status and ownership of the hotel had changed between booking and stay, from a la carte to all inclusive. If we had known this (not informed by or the hotel) we would not have stayed. A number of issues with the room took too long to be sorted. Location was ok and staff very friendly and helpful. Initially given inferior room to the one booked, before changing to correct type. Unfortunately this felt like one of the ‘spare’ rooms at the end of the property and was not set up for 3 people as requested and had a number of problems. This booking was made in April yet we were forced to feel like we had been squeezed in at the last minute. We think the hotel is probably ok for people who choose to do all inclusive and for most rooms at most times and we were unfortunate under the prevailing circumstances. However, that does not mean we were able to have the luxury relaxing holiday we had hoped for. Too much time was spent wondering and worrying about the problems we were encountering.
