Coco de Mer is a lovely hotel with a great restaurant (Fiamma Grill) - the steaks were some of the best that I have ever tasted. the rooms are large with lovely high ceilings and good sized bathrooms (although as others have mentioned the lighting in the bathrooms could be better). Each room has a balcony - ours overlooked the... More

Lovely big comfortable rooms and the ocean is 100m down the road. Would... More

Booked a single night here with my boyfriend as a little treat. The hotel was beautiful, and the staff friendly and attentive. There was an 'incident' by way of a practical joke left behind by a previous guest tampering with the complimentary toiletries, however the staff were very efficient and obviously mortified by the situation. I can't fault the staff... More

We had a four night stay at CDM and what a pleasure... The rooms are very comfortable and clean. We had two kids in the room on an extra bed so the private balcony was very welcome. The staff went above and beyond to make us comfortable and Nush is just delightful! The security personnel is very helpful and always... More

My husband and I were both shocked upon arrival at Coco De Mer, shocked in an amazing way. When we drove in, we found out that we had a parking space for the room we were staying in. We then checked in to reception and the receptionist personally went to check the room was ready for us and then we... More

We recently held our budget conference there for 10 people and it is ideal for that (not suitable for groups larger than that) . Lovely peaceful environment for the conference. Good service and food in the restaurant. Nice clean rooms. Location ideal for a walk to the beach or to visit other restaurants close by. We ate at the hotel... More

It is such a pleasure to be able to spend a holiday at a hotel where everything from the rooms to the restaurant delivers such exceptional service. We have not had this kind of experience for a very long time and it is wonderful to know that there is a hotel out there with its staff who all treat it... More

The whole experience was great. Slick check-In, Clean and well-appointed room, well-priced pub, immediate Internet log-on and the next morning they made take-away coffee happen. Check-out was smooth and as always I will be back. Lionel.
