The place to be.... Has everything a 5 star needs but my problem was the live band entertainment on new year's Eve. Please get some good dancing entertainments like cabarets shows with dramas then later continue with live band and please I'll suggest you get an ANIMATION TEAM that's all you lack but apart from that its perfect I love...

Great resort, there are two restaurants; one 'french' and one Thai with an actual Thai chef. Personnel is friendly, rooms are beautiful, choice between three pools or the beach. The spa is amazing and affordable, had the best massage ever (an hour for € 20,-). Great holiday spot!

First of all, this hotel is by far the best you can find in The Gambia in terms of quality, cleanness, service, food and infrastructure. The beach and swimming pools are amazing and the staff will help you with any request you might have. But..because there is a but.. there is nothing around the hotel and therefore you need a...

This is jewel set against one of the most pristine beach front properties in the Gambia Capital of Banjul. The Resort is blended in nature to the extend that birds and pretty small African monkey (quite inoffensive) wander within the lush well maintained garden full of rare tropical exotic trees. Birds of different varieties share the space with their beautiful... More

I was on business when I stayed at the Coco Ocean. Check-in was quick and easy. What a neat little place right on the ocean. All the food that was served was top notch. They even had decent sushi! I wouldn’t drink the water unless it came from a bottle though. The room was traditional lock and key rather than... More

I stayed 3 nights in this hotel and am moving out to another. This 5 stars is more like 2 stars: I woke up on my 1st morning there and no running water! I had to shower frim a bucket. The cleaning team couldn't be bothered cleaning my bathroom. To make it worse my chicken penne came swimming in oil!... More
