Stayed here for one night on business. Hotel location is just a street away from the beach and about 5 minutes drive from the main shopping area with very popular restaurants. The rooms are clean and fairly modern. The bathrooms are spacious and the showers are generously large. Very nice amenities. Rooms have Air Conditioners and Dstv. Beds are comfortable... More

A really lovely small boutique hotel. We had sea facing rooms and while not directly on the beach front, we did have a slight view of the sea. We would definitely request these rooms again. The rooms are very spacious with a good size bathroom that has both a bath and shower. The staff are extremely friendly and made staying... More

This hotel makes beautiful pictures. Photos of the entrance and pool area looks stunning. The rooms had a strong disinfectant smell, but they still appeared a bit stale. Room doors open onto a quite windy outside stoep area . This overlooks the parking area,where at present lots of renovation and building material are to be seen. We had forest rooms... More

Coc de Mer pleasantly surprised us with special, personal service by staff who are really great and understand how to make their guests fees special. if this establishment was on the beachfront it is a clear winner, although they are a few steps way from the beach. if the latter is not a big deal for you then I definitely...

The staff, service, room quality and overall experience at Coco De Mer was a wonderful experience. Nothing was ever a problem for them and well worth a trip to stay at the hotel. The restaurant was mazing and a great place to have an extraordinary dinner.

The food is lovely and the service is excellent. Very popular with the locals and requires a booking if you would like to eat at the restaurant on Sundays. I would def recommend staying and eating. (Try avoid rooms near reception as they can be a bit noisy from other guests, but really is the only fault for the place)

A pleasant stay although some building work on new family rooms was a little disruptive. Our intention was to use the on site Spa and when they were unable to accommodate us for certain treatments were quick to recommend the "second best spa" in the area, which was excellent. We returned to Zenju for two hours of pampering which was... More

We recently stayed at Coco De Mer and extremely disappointed in its services. Firstly their "sea facing suite" faces onto a town house complex and a main road and it is impossible to see the sea. This is misleading marketing in my opinion. Secondly they were doing major building renovations and we were not given the courtesy of being advised... More

Coco De Mer was central to our recent wedding and not only met all our expectations, but completely exceeded them. First of all, my father-in-law spent 6 night here in the most amazing room, beautifully furnished with high ceilings overlooking the stunning forest-gardens. He enjoyed great breakfasts and delicious dinners throughout and returned to Mexico with only good things to... More
