When I was visiting The Gambia this summer, I´ve been expecting some of these typical westafrican hotels: 1. lodges, 2. family all inclusive resorts or 3. appartments with a kitchen for either very lucky or very retired people who can stay a longer period of time. Imagine how surprised I was when I first saw this one. Coco Ocean completely looks like a place in Marrakesch. The only small but very important difference: it does have a beach! I could walk around there for hours taking pictures of the beautiful swimming pools (the common one had 3 levels and some rooms also had a private one), flowers and the 4 restaurants. As a result I didn´t even manage to get to the beach…but got some nice shots for you instead!
