Fodor's Expert Review Laico Atlantic Banjul Hotel

Av. Marina Parade, Banjul, Banjul, 1602, Gambia

Relax poolside, seaside, in the rose garden, or in the bird sanctuary, or be as active as you like—this all-inclusive complex just outside Banjul provides lots of options. It's a quiet outpost after a day of adventuring, and a salon and massage rooms get travelers back in top shape, but you can also play croquet or tennis while the kids enjoy the playground. For entertainment, there's a nightclub, three restaurants, and two bars, and local bands, folk singers, and dance groups perform some evenings. Rooms aren’t especially fancy, but they’re clean and colorful, and some have balconies overlooking the pool and sea. The resort offers fishing trips, history tours, shopping excursions, and other off-site activities.
