Having stayed at countless hotels in The Gambia this one is by far the best although not the cheapest. That said, it is worth every penny. Go out of season & the price to stay is greatly reduced. We had a fabulous suite. The resort is very quite especially in the evenings but the staff will chat to you -... More

We got the beach club villa with a great view of the ocean and the pool and it was the best. We were very uninspired to leave our patio to roam other parts. Lazing around on the patio, enjoying the sea breeze and room service was 80% what we did for 5 days and we did not get bored at... More

An oasis in the often hectic, challenging, pace of The Gambia. Check in and enjoy the luxurious rooms, many pools, spa and beach. Food us great in all restaurants, but is amazing in the Tai dining room in the beach. One of the only truly five star hotels in The Gambia and reasonably priced. Don't miss the Thai massage.

A group of 3 families stayed in this hotel for holidaying. Rooms are spacious and amazing. Children and elders had real fun in our stay of 2 nights. SPA and other facilities are good. Highly recommended for families.

My friends and I decided in a day spa experience that allowed us full use of the hotel facilities - food, pool and obviously spa treatments. The atmosphere, ambiance, staff and service were all lovely - not one complaint ( with 7 women that is a rarity )...

This was ore first trip to The Gambia. We are definitely planning a return trip in November 2014. We choose Coco Ocean Resort and Spa because of the large grounds and the bird life at Bijilo Forest Park. Our room was in the Bamboo suite and it was absolutely fine and the breakfast is great plenty of choice and for... More
