Blog > Budgeting for your holiday in The Gambia

With our all-inclusive holidays and dining packages, budgeting for your holiday in the Gambia may be easier than you think.

Dining out in The Gambia is great value for money and many people choose to experience the wide variety of cuisine that is on offer. However, things can soon add up when you are dining out every day. If budgeting for your holiday is a concern, have you considered booking an all-inclusive holiday or one of our Dining Packages in The Gambia?


All-inclusive at Sunbeach Hotel and Gambia Coral Beach

An all-inclusive holiday provides you with the reassurance that you don’t need to save up any holiday spending money other than for any excursions you may wish to take (and we highly recommend that you do get out and about). These can be paid for at the reps meeting at the start of your holiday. Thereafter, you can relax by the pool or the beach knowing that you don’t have to worry about anything. Every meal and drink (and excursion), right up to the end of your holiday are already paid for – no more working out what you can afford to spend each day, or whether you’ll have enough money on your last day for one last cool Julbrew (the locally brewed beer).

All-inclusive holidays in The Gambia - Sunbeach Hotel

The welcome reopening of the Sunbeach Hotel in Cape Point last year created nearly 200 local jobs and quickly saw the hotel establish itself as a quality all-inclusive property. The response from our customers has been wonderful with 100% rating this hotel as good or excellent on the independent review site Feefo. For more information please visit our website, Sunbeach Hotel.

An alternative all-inclusive option, Gambia Coral Beach Hotel & Spa is in a secluded setting by the lovely golden sand of Brufut and is well established as an all-inclusive hotel. For more information please visit our website, Gambia Coral Beach.

Full Board Plus at Kombo Beach

Another option when budgeting for your holiday is Full Board Plus at Kombo Beach Hotel in Kotu. This popular and lively hotel in a superb beachfront setting offers good facilities as well as excellent cuisine. Board can be Bed & Breakfast, Half Board or Full Board Plus. The latter costs £30 per person per night, which we think is great value considering the following is included each day: in addition to the already included breakfast: a two-course lunch with a small bottle of water at the beachside snack bar Barracuda, an afternoon tea or coffee with cake, a buffet dinner at Kudula with a small bottle of water and a tea or coffee plus six drinks vouchers, which can be used throughout the day, valid for soft drinks (excluding fresh juices), a Julbrew or a glass of house wine.

For more information please visit our website, Kombo Beach.

Bon Appetit at The Kairaba

Set in spacious tranquil gardens by Kololi Beach, The Kairaba is a popular hotel with excellent facilities and a more flexible dining package.

The Bon Appetit package costs £80 per person for a seven-night stay, and includes four buffet meals in the hotel, leaving you free to also try some of the many restaurants in the lively resort of Kololi, just a short stroll from the hotel.

We think this is a fabulous option when staying at The Kairaba as it would be a great shame to miss out on the many varied restaurants right on the hotel’s doorstep. Try Tao for its popular southeast Asian buffets, El Sol for tapas and Mexican specialities, or Scala, known for their excellent steaks and fish n chips, to name but a few.
