    snotty front desk staff

    There were 6 of us girlfriends on a 3 week trip around The Gambia, Senegal and Cape Verde. After a 2 night trip down the River Gambia and very hot 6 hour van ride we arrived to find the hotel we had booked next door was not open due to renovations. I had called in advance to make sure it was open and was told it was, we were sent to Kalimba. When we walked in with our packbacks we were treated like we did not belong. Very uncomfortable and unpleasant. Hotel was nice, my room was lacking soap and shampoo, I had to ask 2 times for it to be delivered. Another friends room had an AC that did not work. Breakfast was nice with lots of options. Another complaint was the male staff constantly asking for our phone numbers to "keep in touch". Very irritating. overall it was a nice hotel.
