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.

One of my favorites! I always have a great experience at CocoDerMer and FiammaGrill. From the time you walk in to the time you leave the hospitality is just phenomenal. The food is in a class of its own and just delicious at all times. I have to add that the vibe and energy is just superb and you always... More

We arrived at King Shasha Airport and then drove straight to Ballito. We arrived at Coco de Mer about 7pm and the gateman showed us to our parking spot. We had requested forest view room as I guessed we would see enough of the ocean. What a good choice. The room was spacious and luxurious but the best thing for... More

Everything was excellent. The only down side was that we could not relax at the pool over the weekend because the pool is in front of the restaurant and there were sometimes parties in te pool area and the loud noise till late.

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

A lovely overnight stay on our way back to Knysna after attending a wedding on North Coast. Great 4 star boutique hotel with an onsite Fiamma Grill which served delicious food and very efficient service. Staff were very friendly and efficient and offered us tea on arrival. 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
