Our Expert Opinion

"You can’t beat Sarge's Hotel for its central location. It has always had a friendly feel and offers both easy access to nightlife and a relaxing retreat."

- Tony, Customer Manager


What we love

  • The central location allowing easy access to the shops, bars and restaurants of Kololi.


Good to know

  • Renovated rooms include air-conditioning and Wi-Fi in the price.
  • Although half board is not offered, there is a wide selection of restaurants on the doorstep


Great value in The Gambia

This friendly property has reverted to its previous management during 2020, and is sold as a 2.5-grade property, offering simple but comfortable accommodation following some refurbishment work in the last couple of years. It enjoys a great location for getting out to explore the resort, while also providing a quiet space for some relaxation.

Well-equipped rooms

The standard rooms are fairly small, but offer a good level of accommodation and face onto a central courtyard so remain quiet, despite the location in the heart of Kololi. All rooms now have air-conditioning and Wi-Fi as standard, and are arranged on three floors, all surrounding the central courtyard which is home to the inviting swimming pool and sun terraces.

Exploring Kololi

The hotel has access to a sandy beach, no more than 400 metres away, and also houses a massage centre and hairdresser. A mini-market and exchange bureau are amongst the shops located just outside the hotel. 

Evening entertainment takes the form of local shows, although you may find the hotel can be less busy in the evenings due to its location in the centre of Kololi. There's an excellent variety of restaurants, a number of bars and nightclubs, a craft market and several shops all just outside the hotel. For this reason, we don't offer this hotel on a half board basis (this can be arranged in advance for groups).

About the Local Area (Kololi)

Kololi is by far the most established resort area. ‘The strip’ as it is known locally, consists of a number of bars and a couple of nightclubs, frequented by both locals and tourists.

There are a large number of places to eat serving a variety of cuisine styles - you can get anything from an excellent curry, a Lebanese dish or a more traditional Gambian meal. There is one casino on the strip, not to mention a whole host of bars and clubs - all of which throb into the early hours, but may be quieter between May and October. The strip also boasts banks and exchange bureaus, cafés and shops. It is generally fairly relaxed in the day and really comes into its own at night.


The beach outside the Senegambia, Kairaba, Kololi properties and Holiday Beach Club has a strip of sand plenty wide enough for sunbathing on, with sunbeds and parasols just outside the hotels. At low tide you can walk for miles along the sands.
