Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Couldn’t recommend the visitor centre highly enough. They are so knowledgeable and helpful with information on the island and we made all our booking through them.

Rey helpful with car rental, accommodation and tours prior to the visit. A good range of goods as well, but closed on Sundays so plan ahead!

Every visitor to Cocos should visit the visitor centre to obtain information and look at the various displays. The only problem is they don't really have good maps of West or Home Islands - they're lacking in detail and, on our arrival, some of our people (we were a group of 28) didn't know where to find their accommodation.

The Visitor Centre is a great starting point on the Island for information on tours and attractions. Staff are very friendly and prices are reasonable. Cocos Island is a snorkler's paradise, and it you forget your gear, you cn always buy a set og=f goggles and snorkel; here at a rrasonable price. the only thing they did not stock when we were there, which I hope they do now of=r very soon, is reef shoes which you will need if you dont want to cut your feet of the reef.

Great little information centre.
The ladies in here are very helpful and know all the activities and tours available across the Islands. Good for renting snorkels & fins also.
Small shop in here with some tourist type gifts and also the coupons for internet access whilst you are on island.
