I got shown the latest addition of a family room which is exquisitely designed and decorated. The restaurant downstairs was a little noisy when we arrived and concerned us a bit but you couldn't...

Coco de Mer is across the street from the beach at Ballito, and the hotel was recommended by a local. The hotel staff greeted us with champagne! The room was spacious, and included a fridge and electric kettle. The bathroom featured a large tub plus a walk-in shower. The room was on two levels and nicely decorated. We had a... More
