The staff are so happy and friendly and go out... More

Wonderful rooms with excellent facilities situated on a wide sandy beach - this hotel has everything for a sunny winter getaway. Although there is everything you want within the complex - do walk along the beach to Senagambia and try some of the local bars and restaurants (take a taxi at night - the driver will return for you after...

Reception personnel is not dedicated at all. Stamps for postcards not available; changing money took half an hour. Reported missing towel for the bathroom has... More

I have nothing negative to say about this hotel in a stunning location on the beach, the service and cleanliness is fab. we had a suite on the second floor overlooking the terraced breakfast area, the spa is well worth the pampering and the staff allow you to do absolutely nothing all around the hotel, nothing is too much trouble,...

The staff were just the best, couldn't be more attentive. The beach was quiet and stunning. I took loads of childrens clothes with me that I had collected from friends, so if you have... More

As long as you don't expect the 5 star you might find in other parts of the world, you won't be disappointed. Exceptionally friendly staff, beautiful room, fabulous beach side location, couldn't have been happier. The only reason I haven't gone the full hog with the stars is only down the the food options. I would have preferred to have... More

We returned on Saturday 21st November after a 10 night stay. If you are thinking of staying in a Club Villa, in our opinion the only one to book is Villa 50 which has to be one of the best rooms in the hotel! A wonderful room with a very large covered terrace and a further sun terrace with a... More

I lived in Gambia for 6 months for work purposes, but I also visited the city for leisure. I went to several hotels for dinners, but I loved the view in Coco Ocean for dinner in front of the pool, as well as lunch in the restaurant with the sea view. The food is great and people are quiet friendly.... More
