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

in brief: Wonderfully peaceful and calm hotel away from the hectic life of Gambia but still within easy striking distance of the Senegambia 'strip' and all taxi and tour options. Best Atlantic beachfront location bar none in Gambia. Two superb (if not cheap) restaurants - 'fine dining' and 'beach'. Day pass to the pool areas, beach loungers inc. towels for... More

I came here to get a week in the sun in February. Judging by the airport transfer that stopped at others en route, this looked like the best of the bunch. It is large and spacious. We had a budget room in the dome area above the reception. It had a fantastic view of the ocean and it was clean... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks in Nov 2014. The hotel was on a third occupied due to the Ebola outbreak. There was no Ebola in Gambia. The hotel is situated on a long stretch of sandy beach which was deserted every day. Walking along the beach you did get a little bit of hawkers trying to sell their wears, but... More
