This was my first visit to The Gambia and really had no idea what to expect. Have backpacked in Nigeria & Kenya & assumed this would've been a typical package holiday resort! Was pleasantly surprised. To start with the hotel was amazing value for money. Clean, large room with everything you could need~not luxurious but perfect for what we needed.... More

Its nicely tucked away from the hustle and bustle of town and right on the beach front. wonderful service, beautiful scenery, we always looked forward to the... More

For my 10th trip I finally stayed at the renowned Coco Ocean. The scenery and visual splendor of the hotel did not disappoint. However, the service could be snappier and the food could use more flavour ( preferably with a local touch) Well worth a visit I will definitely be back.

Been here 4 times now and it is always an experience. Spa is great, had 2 swedish massages. The beach is more or less undisturbed and a joy. I left my computer, iPhone, camera etc alone at my sunbed without feeling worried about theft, which is rare to do in The Gambia :) Food and spa prices are higher than... More

The more than friendly people who are working in this resort makes your stay complete! Nothing is too much for every waiter or waitress! In case you want to make an excursion, do not book via your operator, it is usually expensive and not in line with the normal prioce level in Gambia! You can book an official tour guide... More

I have stayed in two other similar rated hotels in the Gambia and this is the best. I found the location superb, away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip but very easy to get there by hotel car, the taxis situated outside the hotel or a 20 minute walk along the beach. The staff are all very pleasant... More
