Dont be put off by stories of this being a Bad hotel! I have stayed in 3* hotels of the same standard, and this is a 1* please remember you are visiting a third world country, where in most compounds they do not even have a tap but have to fetch it from a standpipe in the street! At the end of the day you get you pay for! if you want the Ritz then pay for it! we found this hotel basic but staff far outwayed any cracks in the paintwork etc! the rooms were cleaned daily, clean towels daily, Bed comfy, breakfast consisted of eggs/fried or boiled alternate days, tomatoes, beans occasionally, bread for toast, cereal, porridge, ham cheese jam, fruit, what more could you want!??
All in all very happy with Badala cheap hotel, with fab staff, go have yourself a fantastic holiday, may see you there!

I heard a few people moaning, but maybe their expectations of food in the Gambia was too high.
Hotel was about 2 minutes from beach, but the entertainment by the pool and staff there were great so you could just laze around the pool if you wanted.
There was a few restaurants nearby which were good. Ali babas pizza was the best I've ever tasted, and a few shops nearby.
