“Amazing place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

We spent 2 nights at Coucoue Lodge. We heard about the hotel and wanted to spend some time in Assinie. This was the perfect place according to friends.
Well, it might not be perfect. Nothing is ever perfect. Still I was dreaming about this place just looking at their website. Well I was slightly disappointed but the place is still amazing!
The lagoon side is so beautiful!! and peaceful. We took a bungalow with lagoon view. It was just great to wake up with this relaxing view. The room was very big and nicely decorated with local stuff ( good point!). Neat , neat and neat ( another good point). Ac working perfectly. No mosquitoes in the room. There is a TV in the room with some cable channels.
There is a nicely maintained garden around the bungalows and the restaurant. I cannot describe how beautiful it was to sit in the couches facing the lagoon and to look at the sun setting. Atmosphere is real! We also loved the romantic ambiance in the restaurants with lanterns and soft lights, you can eat by the water. Try their pizzas they were the best tasted in Abidjan so far! The breakfast was a generous buffet and the staff was really nice apart from one rude guy who was at the reception when we got there. After a long bus journey from Ghana we arrived tired and could not wait to check in. That guy was just looking at us like "what are they doing here?" well, usually when someone comes at the reception it means they want to check in or out. We made a reservation via email but had NO response. Giving our name to the guy at the reception did not help him to trace our email. My husband got annoyed because the man was treating us like we have no reservation and should not be there. He was also being silent, no communication, no apologies, no explanations. We almost left the place but we were so tired that we decided to try at least one night.
The place was so lovely that we decided to stay and forget about that fellow.
On the second day we visited Crocodile Dipi, that is at a walking distance from Coucoue. Give it a try! We also took the pinasse to go to the beach side of the hotel. To me this side was less beautiful. The beach was kinda dirty and I have seen better beach houses. Still Coucoue is really a great place to stay in Assinie. Just know that it is not a budget hotel, the facilities are not budget so the price goes with it.
Apart from a rude member of staff, everybody else was very helpful and nice. Well done to the waiters! Very good service.
To finish I think they also have to make an effort to reply to emails because some people are from other countries and dont get to call the hotel to book.
I totally recommend Coucoue! Give it a try fellow!

If you are only going to stay in one resort in Assinie make it this one. It does get busy on the week end, the service is not consistent and the manager could be at times less than sympathetic but it is still the best place to spend the week end. It has a large open air restaurant that extends to the lagune with a good menu and quality food. Breakfast is by far the best compared to other resorts in Assinie. The pool is large with plenty of comfortable large loungers. The rooms are clean and comfortable if unremarkable. There are billiard and ping pong tables, water sports equipment and an in house boat that crosses to the sea side where there are more accommodations. The place is to be commended beause it is one of the few establishments that actually keeps the strip of beach in front of its rooms clean.

I visited this place many times . This is the best spot near Abidjan for weekend . This place has good beach resort , lagoon view restaurant , Bar .and water sports .
The taste of the food is not very good but the ambiance of the restaurant compensates it .Food in the beach side restaurant is better as compared to lagoon side restaurant . Many basic water sports are also available in the Lagoon although the cost of the rides are little costly .
Overall this is excellent place to visit .

Perfect terrace on the lagoon for sunsetspotting. The houses have great views and the sand is magnifique.
On weekends it's a little bit crowded with folks from Abidjan - but the rest of the week it's a perfect quiet location.

Me and my husband lives in Abidjan. Some friends of us took us to coucoué lodge and we loved it as much as they did. Good food (no worries for bad stomaches - everything is neatly cleaned and cooked), lovelyview, fun activities , helpful staff... The beach on the other side of the lagoonis lovely - but don't count on any serving here so bring snacks and water.

it's just a bit expensive (but more than worth it once in a while).

Room Tip: You'll be outdoors anyway so don't pay for anything extra.

I have been to the Coucoue Lodge last January with my husband and some friends. We' were pleased with the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff. The rooms are really nice. Our stay was the best. I will recommend the Coucoue Lodge to anyone going in Assinie Cote D'ivoire. I will go again!!!!!!!!!!!
