Friendly staff, varied evening entertainment and a fantastic position alongside Kotu Beach has made Kombo Beach Hotel one of the most popular hotels in The Gambia.
A wonderful base for couples and families alike this is a lively hotel with good facilities, excellent cuisine and benefits from a superb beachfront setting; Kombo promises a fun, atmospheric and comfortable stay beside the ocean in The Gambia.
Whatever your interests, you should find something to suit at Kombo Beach Hotel – during the day, join in with pool games or aerobics, take tennis lessons, do a little birdwatching in the tropical gardens with the resident guide, or treat yourself in the beauty salon.
The guest rooms have a light and airy feel, decorated using neutral tones. Set within three-storey buildings amongst the gardens, rooms range from standard through to suites. Their spacious feel is enhanced by the large windows, leading to either a private balcony or patio where you can sit and listen to the ocean. Guests also have a choice of upgraded rooms, including superior and premium rooms which offer a more modern feel with additional facilities. These rooms are very popular, so early booking is recommended.

Food, fun and entertainment
When the evening rolls in, enjoy a fruity cocktail, dine buffet-style or à la carte and listen to the entertainment on offer – each evening holds a completely different musical experience, as well as showcasing regular drumming troupes and cultural dancers.
The hotel offers two restaurants and the Barracuda snack bar, serving throughout the day and evening, along with three bars, including a wine bar. Breakfast and themed buffet dinners (for those on half board) are served in the Kudula Restaurant under a canopy or around the pool, while a more intimate atmosphere can be found in The Brasserie with its à la carte menu and daily specials.
For a more low key evening, head to Barracuda for an excellent value meal listening to the sound of the waves.

Weather in The Gambia
The Gambia has a sub-tropical climate with plenty of sunshine throughout the year and average temperature highs between 29°C and 34°C. There are two distinct seasons. Towards the end of October the dry season begins and the humidity decreases; the Gambian beaches are the perfect setting for your winter sun holiday. It won’t be until mid to late June that any rain is seen again, marking the start of the green season; at this time the generally short lived showers can be spectacular and you’ll know that it won’t be long before everything is bathed in sunshine once more. The dry land soaks up the rain becoming lush and green and teaming with wildlife.
