The hotel and setting was beautiful. The staff are very friendly and excellent service. The pool is lovely and the weather fabulous. The food is superb. However outside the hotel is a bit scary. I would not go to Gambia again, but glad I experienced this hotel.

Having been impressed with the Coconut Residence many years ago,we were looking forward to trying Mr Bensoud's next project - overall, we were not disappointed. We find this report somewhat difficult to write because of our conflicting feelings - so much was excellent but little things kept undermining the big picture. The Morroccan style was certainly different for The Gambia... More

Excllent reception and attentive staff for corporate travellers. Not too awkward to come down to breakfast in your suit. Villas near beach look stunning but rooms in the dome are noisy, yet very clean and functional. Good location too.

This is a beautiful hotel, it's well maintained, the setting and gardens are fabulous. The food we ate was fantastic and the restaurant has a wonderful view of the sea. We spent an afternoon in the spa, which was amazing value and the treatments and setting were exceptional. I could not fault anything

I was in the Coco Ocean for 2 weeks while in Banjul on business. My original (upgraded) room was on the top floor above reception in the "Dome" suites - with no view, but a nice large room and bath. There are no elevators, so the stair walking which is required ALL OVER the resort, became a bit 'much/old" (you... More

Our villa was great with fantastic views. This great experience started as soon as we checked in and continued every day from the reception staff to the waiters and... More

We visited this hotel at the end of the rainy season & no maintenance had been carried out at all outside. The grass was long & not cut plants were not trimmed & fallen palm fonds just stacked up on paths. They started to carry out tiling works around our pool, cutting tiles with an angle grinder (& no protected... More

This is an absolutely wonderful hotel in a beautiful setting. They have very friendly, helpful, and professional staff. The hotel is beautiful, well-maintained and well-done throughout. I was with three other young adults and we were happy with our entire experience except the food. It was inconsistent and while we enjoyed the breakfast and lunch fare three different days, the...
