Really pretty hotel across the road from the beach - but service was average and impersonal. The room was lovely- could not find the wifi code and there was no info about the hotel facilities. We had an early morning check out so did not stay for breakfast

Room was amazing with convienent short walk to the beach. Breakfast was nice. Staff were amazingly friendly and helpful and very accomodating to us travelling with our toddler. We even got room service delivered to our room despite a fully booked restaurant

Coco De Mer, what to say... the service, the food, the staff, the beauty of the hotel is just beyond belief. We had not one issue during our entire stay. We were waited on like royalty and our bellies were singing with happiness from the wonderful food at La Fiamma. We couldn't have wished for a better time and experience.

As a business traveler I like to occasionally stay in more touristy spots; and Coco De Mer certainly did not disappoint. The facilities were excellent, with very clean and comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff. The location is magic, with my morning run right along the beach. My only criticism is the lack of a bar of soap in the...

Perfectly located close to the beach and boardwalk. Family friendly but with a sophisticated touch: Quality restaurant and Spa. Balito is an apartment place with few hotels. Coco de Mer is a perfect choice all round with super friendly staff and a can do attitude.

Service was excellent. However, renovations done right outside the main rooms, with no prior notice, thus very noisy. Additionally, the pool and relaxation area are open to public, making it noisy and overcrowded, not in par with a boutique hotel. Pictures of pool area on website does not correlate with the pool area currently there. Rooms and staff were excellent....
