This is a very good hotel with a wondeful spa. It is set in beautiful grounds with it's own vegetable garden that supplies the hotel's restaurants. We chose one of the beach houses, which was wonderfully spacious internally, but were disappointed that the terrace facing the ocean was enclosed by a wall, meaning you had to stand to actually see...

A quaint British colonial/Moroccan hotel directly on the beach. It's quite large and the grounds are well cared for. The massage in the spa was quite reasonable and well done. The pool and beach lounges are wonderful. The rooms are very clean and quaint. Only thing is shower is a bit tricky.... no enclosure and if you get a small...

All the staff here were very friendly but we would like to mention Yusupha Drammeh! What a kind, welcoming young man! The beach is really nice, although the cows wandering down it was a sight to see! The monkeys in the hotel grounds are super cute! Hope to visit again soon! Toby and Claire

This ten year hotel is one of the best in Gambia, or not even the best I'm told. The spa is excellent, very good service and professional. Rooms are cleaned twice a day, with good a/c. Restaurants are quite good, but the beach restaurant not so good; bones in chicken, frying oil bad/overused. Tried the restaurant twice but neither of...

We stayed in a beach club villa which was spacious and kept very clean by the maids. Yes perhaps in need of a lick of paint in places but the bed was comfortable and had Gambian charm. The grounds were well tended and there was plenty of places to spend time relaxing either by one of the pools or on...

My wife and I recently returned from a week at the Coco Ocean. It is a lovely hotel set right next to the beach. The staff are among the friendliest and helpful people we have ever met with nothing being too much trouble. A special thank you to Sarah on Reception and Ousman who served us our breakfast during our...

I was here for business and was told it was the best place to stay in Banjul. I arrived to a dirty bed with stains, hair and lipstick. I requested a new room and was told I had to stay and wait for housekeeping, 30 minutes later I could sleep since it took that long for them to change the...

Only 20 minutes drive from the airport it was a speedy and polite checkin at the main reception. The front desk team were generally always pleasant. The concierge were very friendly and helped all the time. The resort is large and has a hill from reception down to the pools and beach. Clean and well kept in all areas. The...

Another inspiring Thai meal at The Coco. The Chicken with Cashew Nuts was exploding, so much in my mouth, that I had to continually keep eating. Could not stop to keep feeding the sensation !! You must go !
