The service at this hotel is phenomenal. The staff were so friendly and super helpful, even went above and beyond. The hotel is gorgeous, located right by the beach and the rooms are spacious. LOVE IT!

We were a party of 6 so we had 3 rooms. The rooms were very well appointed, spacious, with lovely views from the balconies. We were only there one night, as part of our transfer from King Shaka airport to Leopard Mountain Safari Lodge. Due to COVID restrictions, the beaches were closed and alcohol service was not allowed. The service from the reception desk when we arrived was first class. Unfortunately, even though we pre-ordered pizzas for dinner, the service in the outdoor restaurant was very slow and a bit disappointing. It is a beautiful hotel, and with the arrangement of the soaking tub opening up to the room it could make for a romantic getaway.

Everything about our stay was brilliant. The hotel is in an excellent location. The rooms were spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly and prepared to help with anything. The Food at Fiamma Grill was also excellent. We had such a lovely stay and so glad we decided not to cancel due to the Pandemic. Thank you so much.

We booked a room for two on November 28 for one night, at a rate of 2025 zar through booking.com after looking at the lovely pictures and seeing ourselves having cocktails by the pool and enjoying our Saturday at this boutique hotel. We arrived early hoping to quickly put on the sunscreen and relax by the pool. It was very windy so going to the beach was out of the question. We were not able to get to the pool - the pool area / terrace / deck was busy with a private function, a birthday party. The number of people, the non distanciation during these COVID times, the whole thing being too much of a discomfort, shocking! All day, all evening. We ended up spending the day in our room. On our terrace. Safe place. Room #13 was not what we expected, again from the lovely

Responded 09 Dec 2020
Dear Lyne We are so terribly apologetic about the manner in which you have been received and for the discomfort you felt whilst in our care. We have since put better COVID protocols in place and provided lounging and relaxing areas around the hotel and pool for guests to enjoy comfortably. We are further investigating our rooms, updating our social media platforms and photos, so there is no misdirection or uncertainty. I am truly sorry that we could not have ended this on a better note and wish to return all your money for your stay. Once again we say from a very humble place that we are sorry and I wish you well in your travels. My front desk management are rectifying the matter as we speak. Seasons blessings The Coco De Mer Boutique Hotel Team
