A well-established hotel boasting a friendly atmosphere and beachfront location, Ocean Bay Hotel has long been a favourite of holidaymakers in The Gambia.



Our Expert Opinion

"I loved the beach area, seeing the local life and market stalls of Cape Point. There are some fantastic restaurants a short drive away and the hotel's massage was amazing."

- Carla, Sales

 

What we love

  • The range of activities on offer, including table tennis, water aerobics and massage and beauty treatments (payable locally).
  • The impressive lobby, bar and restaurant areas, offering tasty buffets and a Mediterranean/Asian à la carte alternative.

 

Good to know

  • Deluxe rooms offer a better quality of accommodation. Our guests will receive this room type at no extra charge, although an upgrade to a full sea view is also available.
  • The beach outside Ocean Bay Hotel is one of the best in The Gambia.

 

Beachfront relaxation

A refurbishment of Ocean Bay Hotel's reception area and restaurant in 2015 has created beautifully light and airy spaces. A small spa and room improvements were also introduced, with our standard rooms now offering a sea view, while larger deluxe rooms provide additional facilities.

The large pool area at Ocean Bay Hotel remains a focal point for activities and evening entertainment, surrounded by sunloungers, parasols and a shaded seating area. You’ll discover an air of tranquillity throughout the hotel’s lush gardens, while the long beach, accessed directly from the hotel, is one of the finest in The Gambia.

Dining at Ocean Bay

During the day, the pool bar with pizza oven provides an inviting lunchtime snack, and there’s also the choice of two restaurants; one serving buffet-style breakfast, lunch and dinner, including Gambian delicacies, and the beachside Buddha Restaurant & Lounge serving beautifully presented sushi as well as other Asian and international dishes.

Why not try a cocktail from one of the hotel bars, or a lemongrass iced tea for which it's well known? There are also themed evenings scheduled during winter, with entertainment including shows by the resident animation team and live bands to appeal to all the family.

Out and about

In the vicinity, there are a couple of other hotels, local bars, small restaurants including Calypso where crocodile viewing is possible, shops and a craft market all within easy reach, and the popular resort of Kololi is only a 15-minute taxi ride away.

Please note that a cash-free system within the hotel is in operation payment for all services and food/beverages must be made via reception - VISA, Mastercard and cash are accepted (although there may be card charges) - there are ATM machines which accept VISA cards close by.

About the Local Area (Cape Point)

With its excellent beach and conference centre at the Ocean Bay Hotel this area now has great appeal. There are a small number of restaurants and bars here along with craft stalls, mini-market and taxi rank. Calypso bar and restaurant is situated next to the hotel with a small lake often allowing you to view crocodiles. Bakau is a 10 minute walk from here.

Beaches

A wide, sandy beach. Groynes have been built to stop any erosion of the sand.
