We got this adress in our hotel (Cocco ocean). The warm welcome from the owner, the excellent service and food, the hospitality; everything was memorable. We went even two times in one week. If you take meat or fish: everything is fresh !

You will need to check with them given this is the low season so much of Kololi is shut down until October. Worth an email to them to see. Enjoy The Gambia.
