It was a pleasure to stay here again with friendly and efficient staff that are always willing to help. Lovely clean rooms with all expected facilities to ensure a nice stay.

Absolute best place to stay in Ballito in Kwazulu Natal is Coco De Mer. We've stayed there 3 times now and everytime we're very happy with everything there. The food from Fiamma Grill which is their in-house restaurant is VERY GOOD! Allround outstanding place to stay and eat.

A lovely boutique hotel with beautifully decorated rooms. Just a short walk from the beach and close to shopping centres. Only down side was having the pool in the middle of the restaurant, absolutely no privacy. But the Fiamma Grill on the premises is awesome and are even willing to deliver to your room. Will definitely be back.

Excellent hotel with all the amenities one could need! Don't bother eating anywhere else, the food at the Fiamma Grill is exceptional and the staff very attentive without being intrusive. With sea views that bring the tranquility into the room, if you ever leave you will struggle to decide whether to hit the beach a stone's throw away or just...

The hotel is nothing short of great and the onsite restaurant is fantastic too. Possibly the best hotel in Ballito. The sea facing rooms are very spacious with nice little balconies. The beds are super comfortable with large open plans bathrooms.
