We stopped for lunch and totally overwhelmed the service. We took one of the last available gazeboes and had to wait over 2 hours before we were all served. The food is good and inexpensive but with only one waiter the service is nearly nonexistent.

I've never stayed a night (I live in the same area!) but I must have been hundreds of times to snooze in a hammock or read at a table. It's a great place to relax, have cheap drinks / food, and enjoy the beach. Very friendly staff. There's a useful tap and shower to wash off sand from the beach....

While I've never stayed the night at Leybato, I've spend many an afternoon/evening swaying the day away in the hammocks and relaxing in the gazebos. Once you've been to The Gambia, you know that bums are just part of being there and the same goes for Leybato. The good news is that the staff are friendly and generally make the...

I have stayed in this Hotel with my family for 10 nights in December 2015. We have really enjoyed our stay and would really like to come back in future. The Hotel staff were very friendly and caring and are always ready to serve their guests. The Hotel has met the standard interms of cleaness of the rooms, bathrooms, toilets...

Very laid back, to the point of being almost wilderness garden. Superb beach frontage, lovely staff, though using Gambian Time; food decent, privacy assured. Approach from the dusty hill at the front, not from the beach...too many hasslers out there. When you emerge form the hotel to the beach you are known, other way round it's not so certain. Lovely...

Best prize/service/location combination! The Staff is very helpful, you don't get harassed by the "beachboys" and the food is in itself a reason to visit Leybato. There are two types of Rooms available, cottages and modern house. Both are clean, beds are made every morning. Really, best you can get at a very low price!

We stayed 3 nights at Leybato. The location is quiet, lovely and convenient. The staff very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant is OK and vegetarians catered for. However, the rooms are rather dingy and everything is very old and worn - requiring maintenance or renovation.

Stayed in Bungalow 1 and 2 for two weeks just returned home this week. The views are beautiful from the doorway as you step outside the bungalow; the ocean and beach are pretty special to look at. The breakfast is basic with eggs, bread, cheese, fruit, tea and coffee but is serll 10am so a sleep in is possible. The...
