Your Holiday


On arrival at Kingfishers we require all guests to provide proof of being vaccinated against Covid 19. Without this access will not be granted and unfortunately, you will forfeit your deposit.

We do not accept guests under 16 years of age unless your travelling party have booked all four of out apartments at the same time.


Guests must provide proof of being fully vaccinated.

Hand washing upon entering Kingfishers is mandatory.

Minimum Stays:

For Christmas and New Year Holidays a minimum of a 7 night stay is required. There is a minimum of two nights stay at  other times.  Kingfishers is closed in September every year.


For stays less than 21 nights a £100 non refundable deposit is payable within 5 days of us confirming your booking via the Website or your enquiry E-Mail. For stays of 21 nights and over a non refundable deposit of £250 is required. We will supply you with the details that you will need in order to do this. If payment is not received within 5 days your booking will be cancelled.


Prior to Arrival:

Reservations must be cancelled a minimum of 90 days in advance of arrival and confirmed in writing. If less than 90 days notice is given we will attempt to re-let the apartments/s. Unfortunately, if we are unsuccessful you will be liable for payment for the apartment/s of the remaining   balance of your total stay price in full .For reservations made within 90 days of arrival and then cancelled, we will try to re-let the apartment/s but due to short notice this may not be possible. Therefore if we are unsuccessful you will have to pay the balance of your total stay price in full.

Non-Arrival and Curtailment of Stay: 

In the event of non-arrival or the visit being abandoned after arrival no refund is possible and the outstanding cost of the stay as booked remains payable.

By Kingfishers: 

If in the unlikely event we have to change or cancel the reservation we reserve the right to do so.  If this situation does unfortunately arise you can: 1) accept the change as advised; 2) make an alternative arrangement with us, or 3) cancel your reservation and receive a full refund of any monies paid.

We are unable to judge the reasons for change, cancellation or non-arrival of guests therefore we kindly remind you that any booking made with Kingfishers (verbal or written) forms a legally binding contract – as a result we strongly recommend appropriate insurance.


Apartments are available between 3pm – 6pm. However we will aim for your apartment to be ready for you on arrival if we are supplied with your expected time of arrival.


Rooms must be vacated by 11am unless otherwise agreed with us.

House rules:

For the enjoyment of our guests we welcome travellers who are over 16 years old only.  The only exception to this is if all four apartments are occupied by the same travelling party and agreed at the time of booking.

Our apartments are designed to comfortably accommodate 2 people although some have space for one additional single bed. This must be agreed with us at the time of your booking and will incur a supplementary charge.

We operate a strict guests only policy in the accommodation area for your safety and comfort.
Smoking is strictly forbidden in the apartments but guests may smoke on the apartment veranda.
Towels provided are for use in the apartment only and are not for pool or beach use. Separate towels are provided for pool use.
The use of hair and body oils such as bamboo, henna and baby etc. is not permitted at kingfishers as it stains sheets and towels and cannot be removed. Should your sheets or towels be damaged by the use of these types of products we will ask you to pay for the replacement.
Whilst Kingfishers is connected to all main services there may be interruption in supply. Whilst this is inconvenient we endeavor to do everything within our control to maintain services but cannot be held responsible.The electricity supply here in The Gambia is probably best described as irregular. The power supply will be go off without any prior notification. To combat the effects of this electricity disruption we have a standby generator. In the event of no electricity supply, the generator will operate between the hours of 7.30am until 9,30am and then again from 5.30pm until 12.00 Midnight.
