  • 4.0.Fair

    In reality the hotel is about half of what you see in the pictures! Breakfast was disappointing to say the least, we ended up going next door to Ocean Bay hotel and for $10/person we had a real breakfast with real coffee and great service! Room was spacious... nice too have the little appointment but beds are HARD! Never again!

    Nice hotel, close to the beach

    The hotel is nice but the manager can be sometimes unfriend. The internet is not always from the room. You have to be at the reception to get an excellent connexion...

    De har ingen brødmat for glutenalergikere der. Måtte medbringe mitt eget brød til frokost eller spise kun pålegg. Koselig hotel og koselig betjening. Kort avstand til stranden.

    Slidt og nusset hotel. Appellerende personale.

    Et meget slidt hotel med små lurved materialer. Ildelugtende rum med slidt og gulnet sengetøj. Anmasende og appellerende medarbejdere både i receptionen, restaurant og servicepersonale. Meget lidt plads i poolområdet, som samtidigt kalder på bedre rensning og orden. Beliggenheden er god i forhold til interessant strandområde, ofte stærke bølger, da Atlanterhavet og Gambiadlodens udmunding møde der.

    Cape Point Bakaussa

    Cape Point on paikalliseen tasoon verrattuna hyvätasoinen hotelli. Se on suhteellisen pieni ja intiimi sekä hyvin hoidettu ja johdettu. Hotellialue on toki jo melko vanha, mutta se on piedetty hyvässä kunnossa. Ravintolan hinnat ovat hiukan liian kalliit tasoon nähden, mutta eivät kohtuuttomat. Palvelutaso on ok. Hotellissa on pieni allasalue ja ranta. Vieressä on alueen paras hotelli ja vastapäätä sekä lyhyen matkan päässä ravintoloita sekä paikalliskojuja. Bakau on Gambian kehittynein kaupunki ja sähköt ja vesi toimii yleensä. Wifi ei toimi aina. Bakau on mukava sekoitus turismia ja paikallista elämää. Roskien määrä ja yleinen ränsistyneisyys kaikkialla Gambiassa voi yllättää. Turistien on syytä olla myös hyvin tarkkana rahojen kanssa, huijaus on valitettavan yleistä kaikkialla.

    전반적으로 만족합니다.

    전반적으로 만족합니다. 객실도 괜찮고, 아침식사도 좋습니다. 무엇보다 도로와 가까운 곳에 호텔이 위치하고 있어 다른곳으로의 이동이 편리합니다. 직원들이 좀더 친절하다면 더 훌륭한 호텔이 될 것 같습니다.

    큰 호텔치고는 별로네요

    어느정도 큰 호텔에 해당되는데 객실상태는 타호텔과 비슷한데 직원들의 친절도가 별로입니다. 다음에 다시 가고 싶지 않은 곳입니다.

    Det "riktiga" Gambia

    Cape Point hotel- ett litet enkelt hotell med Allt du behöver och med fantastisk personal.Ligger vid stranden men ändå mitt i byn Bakau. Nära fina möten med människor, musik, mat ,kultur. Rätt plats för dig som vill lära känna och bli en del av det"riktiga" Gambia.De senaste 10 åren (1till 2ggr per år) har jag alltid bott på Cape point hotel, och aldrig blivit besviken.
