The Hotel is architecturally very appealing with a blend of North African and West African influences that combine very well. The setting of the hotel is ideal, the gardens are beautiful and well maintained. The grounds are dotted with palm trees and inhabited by friendly monkeys and a huge variety of birds. There is a lovely beach which we could... More

There have been one or two senior management changes at this hotel, it seems to have improved what I already thought was a good all round experience. The new GM Terry went out of his way to make sure he found out about my stay and was always happy to engage at any level of discussion. In general the whole... More

We went to Coco Ocean Resort and Spa purely on the reviews from this site,and we were not disapointed. We had one regret in the whole time we were there-that we did not book for two weeks. The whole Gambia experience is pure magic from start to finish and Coco Ocean is the icing on the cake. Our room was... More

This year in March we went to The Gambia for the second time. Our stay at the coco ocean was again a very pleasant experience. The staff were incredible,enthusiastic,chatty and helpful. Recommended Trips-Bird and Breakfast, was a revelation to me and my wife,and we are now coming home a keen "twitcher". A very early start means you head out in... More

Unfortunately I am late with this review and visited the hotel in March 2016. Coco Ocean is a beautiful hotel, with beautiful surroundings. I selected to stay here having previously experienced the spa on an earlier visit to The Gambia, my main intention was to once again access the excellent spa and good service. I had a thoroughly positive experience,... More

Probably the only true Five Star Hotel in the region. Stunning ocean views, Beautifully landscaped property and truly spectacular details in furnishings and accessories make this one of the best places to recharge, rest and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Hotel is a surprising find as it is right in the middle of a dry, dusty and depressed town. From the... More

The contrast couldn't be greater between this beautifully designed and executed resort on a pristine stretch of beach and the surrounding communities. It may not be comparable to the level of a five-star hotel in other parts of the world, but it is still a lovely place. It's set in a hot dusty town, though, and then this dream oasis... More

We had a fantastic holiday at your resort in a beach Club villa with a very nice view of the ocean and the beach. The resort is very nice and well maintained. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, especially Mr. Terry Langenhoven, Samba, Abdouillie and Yankuba Drammeh. Every wish and question was immediately fulfilled or solved . The Spa is a... More
