This is my second time at Coco De Mer, they are a bit pricy, but all and all worth it. The rooms are beautiful and is also the perfect location for a romantic stay. The food at the grill is out of this world, then you cannot wait to wake up for the awesome breakfast the next morning.

Great boutique hotel attached to a fabulous restaurant! Great service all round. When they say "sea view", note that it is one road back from the sea. Lovely rooms and overall I would stay again. Very centrally located in Ballito.

Amazing food , main reason to stay here. The hotel itself is beautiful and clean , and the service was impecable. The quality of the food at the restaurant rivals some of Durbans finest. Relaxing by the pool and enjoying cocktails with music in the background was also great.

This was my second stay at the Coco de Mer boutique hotel in Ballito Bay and once again it was quite excellent. The rooms are really large and spacious and very tastefully furnished with lovely big en suite bathrooms and a shower you do not bash elbows on! The one thing that really stood out, once again, however, was the... More

The Coco De Mer is a Boutique Hotel in Ballito South Africa. It's not large, but has probably around 18 rooms. I booked two rooms to meet my girlfriend there. She came from Richards Bay, I flew in from Johannesburg and hired a car. It's imperative to have GPS, as the roads are turns and windy and I almost drove... More

Coco de Mer is a trendy, boutique hotel - a gem waiting to be discovered in Ballito, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. Unexpected hospitality of an international standard, superb food, great accommodation and a vibey atmosphere that keeps you wanting to stay at the hotel and not try other venues or restaurants. To Diego and your team, Hats off!

Ballito has progressed from a quiet little hamlet, to a busy seaside resort. This transition requires upmarket accommodation and does the Boutique Hotel Coco de Mer ever offer this! Located near the beach on Compensation Road, the hotel is beautifully situated in a forested area and has been tastefully, thoughtfully and professionally put together. It almost has a Balinese feel,... More

Very spacious rooms and good bed. Slept 3 nights but found it a bit too much, unless you just go to the beach. Ballito is a nice town but little to do. Good stopover during a tour in SA. Some remarks: balcony at the front (sea view) was very small. You could just sit with two people but stretch your... More

Very pleasant stay, great restaurant with exceptionally friendly staff. My only surprise was to find families with very small children in a boutique hotel. They tended to take over the reception area (kids riding bikes etc) and were excessively noisy.
