Mixed feelings
After my stay at the Tamala I feel quite conflicted. I stayed earlier on in the year and had a great experience and this is why I booked it a second time. However, this time could be described as lacking lustre. Overall the staff are lovely and really helpful but there were a few things during my stay which were disappointing. Firstly, I paid for a sea view room with private pool. When I arrived the water was green, you could see algae at the side of the pool. After watching the same debris for a couple of days I mentioned to the reception desk that the pool was not clean. The following day it started to get some attention, but it took some time for the water to become cleaner. I just didn't want to risk it, so did not have use of the pool for the duration of my stay. The African BBQ was good and the Sunday buffet is fairly good value. You just need to arrive early, so you have access to a wider range of foods. The Fish market was not great although the concept is pretty cool. You are able to select fresh fish for the BBQ. What they fail to tell you is that you only get half of what you put in the basket and its disguised on your plate when they bring the food to you (I think...hoping you won't notice). The irony was that my partner and I (trying not to be greedy) selected a crab for us to share and we only ended up with half a crab between us. We complained and received what felt like a half hearted apology and solution.

My room was great. I had just come in from another hotel in Senegal and was so happy. I loved my room and the pool. I will get a pool with my room next time. Breakfast was outstanding and the check-in/out staff were great. I will tell my friends.

Great hotel with amazing service
This stay has exceeded all of our expectations. This wasn’t our first time in the Gambia, however first time in Tamala and it won’t be our last. Upon reading the reviews we opted for a swim up pool view room (gets more sun), however the sea view suites also had their charm! The room was always clean, very spacious and comfortable. The breakfast had a huge selection, the pool bar/restaurant had a good choice of lunch/dinner foods also. The staff were all extremely friendly and attentive. However within all of this we must single out Kawsu S who was excellent- at all times polite, courtious and with a smile on his face. He was always happy to cater to our needs however big or small. I have severe dietary requirements and he made countless journeys to and from the kitchen to ensure we were looked after. There were several taxis outside of the hotel to arrange trips and sightseeing with. We cannot wait to return!
