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.

It is well located close to the beach and boardwalk with good parking available on the premises. Big rooms with big beds and we also liked the refrigerator in the room. The breakfast and the restaurant was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff as well.

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....

Not your fault - but installation of awning for rain at main entrance took place during our stay. Flamma restaurant - food too spicy and very expensive. Restaurant we liked least but location was very good. Air-conditioner and en suite bathroom and room were excellent. Amenities - parking major problem for guests of hotel. Swimming pool area too busy and...

Excellent stay, friendly service from pool bar staff and diner staff. Reception went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable & happy. The food was excellent and specially prepared butternut soup (not on the menu!) just for me by Chef Vincent. Truly was a treat to have stayed at Coco de Mer. Just the breakfast staff and presentation...
