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.

Staff are excellent and friendly and always willing to help. Location is excellent as it is a short walk to the beach. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and facilities such as the pool are great. The restaurant has some excellent food and breakfast is great and the service at these are fantastic!

For Zen tranquility plus modern, spacious, comfortable rooms as well as the friendliest service you'll ever get and the most delicious food in town, go 'Coco'! It's a no contest decision. I've stayed in many hotels and B&B's in Ballito and nothing comes close. This family owned hotel/restaurant has been my home away from home every week for the past... More

We stayed at Coco De Mer for 6 nights and I can only describe our stay as fantastic. From the moment we checked in we knew we were in for a treat. All the staff went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. LanFiamma restaurant served great food and there was nothing better than enjoying a lovely... More

Staff and Managers are very accommodating and really go out their way to make sure you and your family are taken care of. Food is superb at the Fiamma grill. Rooms are beautiful and location of the hotel is very central to Ballito. We thoroughly enjoyed out stay.
