Laico Atlantic Hotel 4 Star

Set in its own tropical gardens, on the wide stretch of sandy beach less than a kilometre from the centre of Banjul.


The LAICO Atlantic Hotel & Resort is located along a charming 50 kilometre coastline of The Gambia, in a fantastic location just seconds from the beach and a short walk from the city centre. The Laico Atlantic is an excellent choice for a break away in the sunshine, and provides endless opportunities for relaxation. Choose between lounging on the sand, a walk through the rose garden and bird sanctuary or just stay by the pool before settling into a night of entertainment with a cool drink from one of the bars. Come winter 2017, this great hotel will be even better due to refurbishment!
