Coco de Mer Hotel

We loved this hotel the first time we stayed on the island and were most pleased to stay again in a beach room. Our room had had a recent make over and was of good quality build and looked great.

However the designer must have been a tad short of the practicalities of a "good " room. The wardrobe in the back of the room needed some form of lighting to see what was in them. The bathroom which looked fantastic was far from ideal. The basins were difficult to use (his and hers) and there was no shelf to put things on except under the basins in a puddle of water and then try to fish them out. The toilet door was only supposed to open inwards which blocked access to the WC which one almost has to step over to get in. Getting out one pushed the door the wrong way and then it hit one of the basins before opening fully. It was easier to squeeze through the gap than open the door the correct way. The bath was fantastic but the taps were on a remote tripod arrangement...………...so I could not turn the water off with my foot!

The shower greeted one with a blast of cold water if the cleaner/previous user had put the hand shower facing the door. However a hand shower AND an overhead shower which worked really well made up for most of the design deficiencies.

Yes little things in an otherwise great room.

Beautiful view from our room

The GM Arturo could not have offered us a warmer welcome… and everything functioned like clockwork. Delicious food; kitchen could not be faulted.

Loved the beach… lapping waves, little lagoons, especially good for small kids. Adults can swim off the jetty to avoid the heavy seaweed in the shore area. Loved the paddle-boarding (thank you Joseph at watersports!)

They do not get better than this hotel!

This has to be THE top hotel though I can see that some people might find the rooms a little old fashioned.

The room was large, comfortable, huge bed, nice bath and shower, lots of hot water and since we were on the beach front a great view in the evenings and mornings.

The monsoon was blowing in the right direction for the hotel and therefore no weed, clear water, no waves and great snorkelling.

Food excellent and the choice very good.

The staff were really very friendly and helpful. How nice to have free tea and cakes at 4pm-5pm.

And the biggest surprise was that the hotel appeared so quiet. It was reasonably full though it seemed not so. Just reflects how nice the experience was........relaxing and luxurious.

A very relaxing environment

1. The quality of the room was excellent and the standard of cleaning was very high.
2. The food was very good. The a la carte menu was good, but perhaps a little lacking in variety. The buiffets were excellent and vey well presented. Breakfasts were very good and the poolside drinks and lunch were good.
3. Service in the restaurant was very good and the provision of equipment (eg snorkelling mask etc.) was appreciated.
4. The only minor complaint was that shampoo and shower gel was not replaced as it was used - we had to ask for more and on one ocassion had to ask twice before it was provided.
5. Staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly.
6. The location was good and the private beach gave a very relaxing feel.
7. Made an interesting contrast to the Sans Souci geusthouse in terms of its beach side location.
