Architecturally inviting, a soothing blend of Moorish and Balinese design, this property is easy on the eyes. The staff are gracious (especially Oesman Bajinka, a server at breakfast, and Isatou, one of the managers, I think, of the hotel). The food quality is extraordinary in presentation, particularly in the Saffran Room (try the pumpkin and sundried tomato tart; the lavender... More

We splashed out and stayed in one of the three beach houses, well worth the extra cost for being right on the beach with use of a private pool. The accommodation was spacious and kept extremely clean by the lovely housekeeping staff. The bathroom area was fine - shower trays will only overflow if you stay in them too long!!... More

We came to the Coco Ocean for a half day spa experience and lunch. First of all the spa, while we had a great morning, being pampered and treated to all the luxuries you would expect in a top spa, we were put off a bit by the receptionist in the spa. She never smiled and she gave us the... More

Great location at a nice stretch of beach, clean rooms and friendly staff. Great food too: both the Thai as the 'normal' restaurant served really excellent food. Nice 1: when in halfboard, you freely choose your three-course dinner from the a la carte menu in both the restaurants. We certainly appreciated that! Nice 2: even when late (we only came... More

This was an unexpected treat for my 2-day stay in Banjul. Although the brochure said there was no wireless Internet available in the rooms, I found out later in the day that it was. I usually travel only with my iPad and most hotels are equipped with wireless Internet. My room was average size and had the amenities I needed.... More

Hotel is very very nice with lovely well thought out rooms. The environment is clean and serene and the food was good. The staff were also very accomodating and quick to respond to issues raised. It is close to Senegambia, the centre of activity. Was definitely good value for money. I as sad to leave

Hotel was beautiful, food was great, nice pools and beach (with service). Good spa treatment, thought it was a bit cold at the spa. Hick ups during service were resolved by management. A la carte breakfast was delicious. Lovely dinner on the beach.

A friend spoke highly of this place. And I think it would be a great place for a romantic getaway as long as you are comfortable with lots of bug in your room, mediocre service, lack of anything within walking distance, and average food. The spa is beautiful but also has its share of Mosquitos which bit me frequently during... More
