Beautiful hotel. Well located, next to the beach. Expansive grounds. Rooms are large and very clean. Beautifully decorated. Friendly staff. Wonderful facilities. Visit the spa and try out the Moroccan hamam, luxurious. Visited with my husband and son. We had a most lovely time. Reasonably priced for the quality and standard of the resort. My son didnt want to leave... More

this is our secoind stay in this hotel, previously we had stayed in the Kairaba. Coco Ocean far exceeds the quality of all the other hotels in Gambia and deserves its 5 star status. We had a beach villa and the size, location, facilities are all well above usual Gambian standards. From the time we booked with Mary, to leaving... More

If you're looking for a quiet and restful break this is the ideal place. We stayed at the Coco Ocean last week. The reception area creates a lovely first impression with stylish seating areas. Check-in was really efficient and we were shown to our Junior Penthouse Dome room which had a large balcony and lovely ocean view - it was... More

We decided to stay at Coco as we previously stayed at the Sheraton which was really good but we wanted the best. On Arrival we were greeted with a welcome drink and everything seemed very nice. We waited for our room and after 35 minutes were taken to room 4. On going into the room we noticed that the bed... More

Our UK Tour Operator is aware that all our rooms have a double bed with twin mattresses. If a request is made for an extra bed then we ensure that a suitable room is allocated to the guest. We were not advised on this occasion and therefore there was a delay whilst another room was found. The guests had booked... More

The owner was very sweet and nice, he looked after us very well. Breakfast was great, all you could wish for. The food in the restaurants was ok, but we... More

We stayed in this hotel for 5 days, and got this as a present from our parents. I should say, it felt a little bit strange. The hotel is beautiful and indeed luxurious, but it felt like the hotel was in the wrong place. You come inside in the hotel, and you are in one place, and you go outside,... More

This was probably our sixth stay either here or at the hotel's sister - the Coconut Residence (currently being refurbished). Needless to say we are big fans! The place is stylishly furnished in an Afro-Moroccan to a very high standard. It is the level of service that sets this hotel apart. Nothing is too much trouble, everyone is friendly and... More

We have just returned from a wonderful break at this fantastic hotel booked with The Gambia Experience.( A superb company) We were a little dubious about a holiday in Gambia, we had heard so many mixed review about health etc but on return I cannot praise it enough. I LOVED it! The management and staff were friendly, helpful and efficient.... More

This Hotel lived up to expectations, the location, amibience and friendliness of the staff were well above expectations. A perfect place to chill out, and when you are ready a good base for exploring further. The food and service were good and very fresh with much of the produce coming from its own garden. The hotel boat on the River... More
