We recently stayed at this beautiful hotel. Helpful staff.We were very impressed with the spaciousness of the public areas and the room. The restaurant was very good and so was the service. Where it needs attention are the showers and towels.

We stayed here last September and I have been meaning to write a review. We had such a brilliant, relaxing time here and will definitely be returning. The atmosphere is amazing from the welcome drinks to the fond farewell I could not fault them at all. The restaurant attached is fantastic with amazing food and a very pleasant atmosphere. Well...

Such a great find for the start of our holidays. We arrived well before check in and they did everything to accommodate us, getting us into our room within 30 minutes. Wonderful hotel and restaurant (remember to book!). The surrounds are lovely and very peaceful and the room was large and well appointed.

What a treat to stay at this boutique hotel. Lovely setting with a piece of forest on the one side and a view of the sea on the other although a row behind the sea front. Rooms are really very nicely decorated and spacious. Service is really very good.

This is our third stay at Coco De Mer. The Location is really good, close to the beach, golf and restaurants. The staff is always helpful. Restaurant is good and the breakfast is serving all you need, and the coffee is first class. The value for such wonderful rooms is great.

This is a great find in Ballito. The hotel is beautifully decorated with large and luxurious rooms, all for a great price. The breakfast is substantial and included in the price. Add to this a friendly and accommodating staff and this place is a real winner. We'll be back!

Stayed here for 3 days during our recent trip to South Africa. This was the "beach" portion of our holiday and the hotel was closer to the beach than we had thought it would be. It is literally steps away. Our rooms had a view of the ocean- ask for one without a palm tree in front! Had adjoining rooms... More

Couldn't have chosen a better place for a family reunion! We felt at home, comfortable (even for two 80 yr-old sisters!) and welcome! Impressed by the dedication of the staff to please us. Well done Fabien, Sara and crew!

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
