An oasis in the often hectic, challenging, pace of The Gambia. Check in and enjoy the luxurious rooms, many pools, spa and beach. Food us great in all restaurants, but is amazing in the Tai dining room in the beach. One of the only truly five star hotels in The Gambia and reasonably priced. Don't miss the Thai massage.

This was ore first trip to The Gambia. We are definitely planning a return trip in November 2014. We choose Coco Ocean Resort and Spa because of the large grounds and the bird life at Bijilo Forest Park.

This was my first visit to The Gambia and really had no idea what to expect. Have backpacked in Nigeria & Kenya & assumed this would've been a typical package holiday resort! Was pleasantly surprised. To start with the hotel was amazing value for money. Clean, large room with everything you could need~not luxurious but perfect for what we needed....
