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...

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 !

Once again my trip to teach in a nursery school in the mornings and relax in the afternoons went perfectly thanks to the high standards offered by Coco Ocean. The position is excellent, being right on the beach and also close to Senegambia and other tourist attractions. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and the food...

Due to situation in Gambia where visitors were pulled out of the country in January 2017 we had to cancel our Gambia trip. Coco Ocean promised us a full refund (24 January). After several reminders send to the hotel and the hotel administrator, and bad excuses from the hotel, we never received any refund (today's date is 10 March). We...

The Coco Ocean is not just a hotel it is an all encompassing feel good experience. All of the staff, without exception are warm, friendly and helpful and the service is excellent. The setting is amazing, the rooms are spacious and cool the restaurants are good especially my favourite, the beach restaurant. One of my best holidays ever!
