    Nice hotel on the beach. Real value for money

    Nice, clean and unassuming hotel on the beach. Well appointed rooms. Very good entertainment, pool and food. Excellent and welcoming staff. Real value for money. Part of the access road could be better but will recommend hotel anytime.

    Nice hotel with some issues

    Had a nice stay at Palm Beach despite ongoing issues with water going off all the time (room A76). Very annoying when you're trying to have a shower! We also found it very difficult to get a sun lounger around the pool so spent most of our time at the beach. Otherwise, as described. Staff very friendly and room was clean but basic. Due to the issues with the water, I would not stay at the hotel again.

    Tired hotel lacking facilities

    This is a run down hotel in an indifferent location. While the staff were friendly and the restaurant/ breakfast was OK, the service provided by the hotel is short of acceptable. The room was grubby and in desperate need of a spring clean/ refurbishment. There was a single towel (a second reluctantly given) and a small tablet of soap, but absolutely nothing else in the room (no toiletries, phone, hair dryer, glasses, information, etc.). Also expect to pay extra for a fridge (about £25 per week and about £20 a week to use the hotel safe). The rooms have air conditioning, but the hotel will try to charge extra to have it connected (around £35 per week). Mosquito nets are available if you ask. The wifi in the pool and reception areas (none in the rooms) seems to work reasonably well. I was there for three nights only, but would not recommend a longer stay. Like a number of other reviewers, I too had trouble with the lock on my room (which was replaced). Fortunately, security does not seem to be an issue in the area.

    The hotel was okay for what we paid. Quite basic and a small pool for the size of the hotel.

    smiling even when it was hard to do so

    I stayed at Palm Beach Hotel for about 7 nights and it was the best nights that i had.The hotel was my happy place those days. The ac was on the lowest number it could go to and the water for the shower was as cold as i needed. the room was simple but great. the power would go out but only in the mid day so that is when we were gone out and about any ways. we made friends with the front desk fast. the security guards always said hello and have a good day when we entered and left the hotel. they always checked in my brothers whenever they came which was everyday lol. There was breakfast every morning which Arnold is the supervisor of the kitchens and the best he told me to go to a local store that sold American food and he would have them cook it for me and never charged me extra. He was our go to guy when i got hungry. there was a live band at the hotel and everyday they had water polo being played. there was a painter by the pool named Usif (i think that's how you spell it) but he did all of the art work on the hotel. sweet guy we bought 3 pics from him even took pics while he painted them. our room was cleaned every day by the same person. i am happy to say that this hotel is not only a great place to pick but the people who work in it make it even better. this place became my home away from home while visiting The Gambia. Thank you to all who made my trip a happy one.

    Great location, very friendly, value for money

    The Palm Beach is a good holiday and package hotel, not expensive, well located, and excellent value for money. Rooms were large, housekeeping was good - fresh sheets and towels every day, rooms well cleaned, staff very friendly and pleasant. No aircon in rooms, which is OK as long as the nights are cool. No TV in my room despite asking several times. But big screen in lobby bar made up for it. My room was at the back, well away from the pool and the evening entertainment, which I appreciated - although the music stops around 10.30 which is fine. I was impressed with the good security of the hotel and the lovely beach. The only downside was the breakfasts, which can definitely do with improvement (e.g. real coffee, more types of cereal).
