We had an amazing time at the Coco De Mer Boutique Hotel. The restaurant is one of the best in the country. The rooms are clean and the service was exceptional with everyone going out of their way to help you and make you feel comfortable. This is definitely now our favourite holiday destination in SA.

A very serene and cost establishment. Well recommended!! The restaurant served good food (a bit pricey for seafood though). I would definitely visit again, the Spa treatment was the perfect end to the stay.
