Atlantic Hotel

Location

ATLANTIC HOTEL: Situated in the capital, Banjul.

General Description

  The hotel is excellent with nice rooms, friendly staff and good service. Swimming pool, bars and restaurant. The beach is good, nice soft white sand but the foreshore tends to be a little dark in colour and has a certain odour. This could be due to it being situated on the estuary of the River Gambia and not far from the shipping lanes into the port at Banjul. The Atlantic is Banjul’s only first class hotel. An easy cool-weather walk from the town centre, opposite the Gambia’s Foreign Ministry on the old Marine Parade, the capital’s shadiest and most ‘colonial’ thoroughfare, which Tomkinson (Gambia book) tells us began as the protectorate’s Regent Place and in 1999 became Muammar al Gadhafi Avenue. The Atlantic has a spacious, landscaped frontage with a drive in past security to the front doors. To the right is parking space and a small taxi park
