My wife and i stayed at Coco Ocean Resort and Spa. The original and at the moment,still the best in terms of luxury in The Gambia. An absolutely wonderful holiday. The food and accommodation were excellent and the staff were so eager to please. The Gambia itself is a good winter gate way resort,we were warned about potential hassel from... More

I was here 14-21 July, so very much out of season, the hotel was incredibly quiet which is just the way I like it. I was in one of the Bamboo rooms which are furthest from the beach, this didn't bother me but although it's not far there is either a reasonable slope or lots of steps which could make... More

Just back from a 12 day visit to The Gambia. We (4 pax) booked the hotel via a tour operator in Belgium. Direct booking with the hotel was even more expensive (although the low rain season). At that time we were the only guests and resided in two beach villas n° 44 and 45 with sea view. The rooms are... More

I can't write a review on what rooms and breakfast is like as we only came to this hotel for day visits as far better then where we stayed. We paid for Adam visits here! First staff amazing, friendly and can't do enough for you, waiters brought you drinks all the time. Pool area lovely and chilled, beach area clean... More

I recommend Coco Ocean as an honeymoon spot for newly wedded couple, or a couple that needs a get away time, company retreat and a personal quiet time. The food was fantastic, the staff was friendly and the view of the ocean was magical

the hotel has a great setting - relaxing - definitely different to the rest of the hotels in the country. However, rated as a five star one would expect a bit more. Hotel needs some more attention to cleanliness. Bfast is a bit weak more like a that of a three star hotel. Dinner gets boring after a week in... More

Definitely the only place to stay in The Gambia and more than 5 star when compared with others in the country.... Extremely attentive staff at breakfast, lunch and dinner extended to all staff at the hotel in general. Having stayed here on several occasions in the past at a modest room level decided to push the boat out and try... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our half-board week here and this is the only hotel in the Gambia that we would return to. The staff were very courteous and our superior penthouse suite was enormous and very well appointed. The a la carte breakfasts and dinners in the evening were excellent. It is a peaceful and luxurious hotel in a lovely beach... More

A delightful Resort and Spa - the Coco Ocean is situated on a long sloping hill leading down to a beautiful beach - comprising a broad variety of suites - most of which benefit from a panoramic view of the beach and Atlantic Ocean. The hotel is certainly expensive - with a rack-rate of €205 for a basic suite (however,... More
