Excellent service, stunning food at fiamma grill! Rooms are so spacious and very modern. Make sure you get a room facing the sea though without those palm trees in the way! The only small problem might be the cars coming past but that's about it. I think they should have maybe made it one higher level so we could see... More

Just simply marvelous! From arrival to departure an unbelievable experience. The staff is attentive. The setting breathtaking. The rooms amazing. It is the best accommodation in Ballito by far. World class standards beautifully wrapped in setting and location. There is no other choice in Ballito for the discerning traveller!

Having arrived in South Africa after a very long flight from Ireland we were made very welcome at this hotel. The evening meal was most enjoyable and the waiting staff extremely pleasant. Breakfast was amply sufficient to sustain us on our onward journey to Tembe. Would strongly recommend and will hopefully return again.

We spent a couple of nights here on our arrival in South Africa. We had a sea facing room,lovely view of massive waves, also saw monkeys on hotel wall. For this reason did not leave windows open, so traffic noise in morning did not bother us. The room was very large and well equipped. Breakfast was good and staff very... More

I am probably one of the few American travelers to have stayed here so my comments may not have relevance to others from different hotel experiences and expectations. Keeping in mind that the Coco de Mer is not even close to the typical business hotel in the USA or elsewhere, CdM is really aiming for those that dont need high... More

We were just staying over for one night after coming back from the Hluhluwe area. Very tranquil courtyard before one enters the reception area. Reception staff were excellent, already knowing who I was before even speaking to them (security I suspect had told them). Welcome drinks and and my signature was awaiting me. Was taken up to our twin room... More

We stayed for one night on our way from a game reserve further north. The hotel is within walking distance to the ocean but to reach a sandy beach suitable for swimming is a 15 minute walk. Unspectacular from the outside the stylish but relaxed interior is a positive surprise. Staff at reception is very friendly as is the staff... More

Nothing is too much for the management of this boutique hotel. The Fiamma grill restaurant within makes the best pizzas. Liked the cocktails around the pool at sundowners as well. Can definitely recommend a stay here.
