Excellent experience at Coco De Mer, from hospitality, relaxation, great food, great service, beautiful setting...we have been once before and will most definitely be back. Brilliant extension of the pool and bar area and live music on Saturday added to the ambiance.

I had a lovely stay at Coco De Mer - only stayed 1 night but it was luxurious, comfortable and clean. Had a room with a sea view and the location is fantastic! Breakfast is a lovely buffet, with cold and hot choices. There is a lovely restaurant on site, and a pool by the bar.

I totally enjoyed my stay here. From the stuff to the food. I love how it's located right next to the beach and I could also jog nearby. There are securities nearby. The food is totally delicious. The stuff is informative. Also has a cute mini bookshelf which I liked! I will be visiting soon.

I have been going to Fiamma Grill since it opened and it is my favourite spot in Ballito.The service and food is top class and the vibe is great specially in the summer where you can have lunch or supper around the pool with live music.The Hotel has great rooms and very neat and clean.

For years I stayed in Umhlanga when on business trips but having been introduced to The Coco de Mer in Ballito that has all changed. Arriving at the hotel you could be mistaken in to thinking that you had just arrived in Bali or Thailand due to far eastern architecture and decor. The atmosphere is relaxed yet professional. The offering...
