The cleaning team couldn't be bothered cleaning my bathroom. To make it worse my chicken penne came swimming in oil!... More

This hotell has a very nice spa. The hamam is something I am still thinking about. The price of the treatments in the spa is also greate as this is a very nice hotel. The breakfast was also very nice, served outside.

My girlfriend and I stayed a the Coco Ocean for 10 days starting in Autumn/Winter 2012.

I have to say that generally, we really enjoyed our... More

This is just the best hotel here for the beauty of it...but too hidden you will not be able to enjoy the night life from a few minutes walk compared to other ones around. I think it is understaffed a bit maybe because this is the off-season period. Most Beautiful hotel ...the rooms are the best(looks like am sleeping on... More

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
