Laico Atlantic Beach could be for you.The hotel continues to attract many repeat
guests who place importance on beach location and activities in a friendly, lively
atmosphere. They are introducing an all-inclusive option in January 2011 which will
be available for sale in resort initially, however we are hoping to be able to offer
it to all customers once it is fully operational.
In August 2009 the hotel was taken over by the management company Laico Hotels and
Resorts. This is a Tunisia-based company who own or manage a diverse range of hotels
Set directly on a beautiful stretch of sandy beach - one of the biggest in The Gambia
- this hotel is located away from the majority of tourist hotels and is spacious,
comfortable and well deserving of its 4 grade rating. The reception area and public
rooms are spacious and comfortable including an inside lounge area built around
a huge tree which grows high above the roof. The rooms are serviced by two lifts
and are of a good standard,with air-conditioning, minibar, safe, television, hairdryer
and telephone, and with the option of interconnecting rooms it’s an ideal choice
for families too. A limited number of sea/pool view rooms are available as an upgrade
and are very popular; full Wi-Fi internet connection is available in some guest
rooms and public areas.
Away from the beach, guests can choose to simply relax by the large pool where two
Jacuzzis offer the perfect place to unwind after a day in the sun, or take advantage
of the wide range of daytime activities. During the winter there is a wide range
of sports facilities and organised activities throughout the day including tennis,
squash, croquet, basketball, volleyball, pool and snooker. A varied entertainment
programme is provided in the evening. A particular feature of the hotel is the charming
bird garden which is home to many different species, both resident and migratory,
and is popular with all guests, not just birdwatchers. Newly opened for Winter 10/11
is the gym and massage centre; all guests during the winter will receive a complimentary
10 minute neck massage.
There is plenty of choice for dining, with three restaurants serving a range of
traditional buffet dishes, Italian and à la carte cuisine. Evening entertainment
is provided on a regular basis, so you’ll probably be happy to relax at the hotel,
however a good choice of restaurants can be reached in just 20 minutes by taxi.
There is also a hairdresser, gift shop, games room and disco. There is now a cash-free
system in operation within the hotel.
Situated about ten minutes' walk from the centre of Banjul, which has little to
offer by way of nightlife, this hotel really caters for guests wishing to stay in
during the evening with a full winter entertainment programme. The location does
provide an ideal base for those wishing to explore the capital, shop at Albert Market,
or for the adventurous, take the local Barra ferry to the North Bank. Tourist guides
and taxis can be hired from the hotel's reception.
