Staying at Cotton Bay was nice. The food was good. There is a lack of variety of food though. Type of food for breakfast everyday is of limited variety. The hotel itself is nicely situated and the beach in your room's backyard is just marvellous :)

We had a nice, quiet and peaceful stay at Cotton Bay. The staff are really polite, but the only problem is the long time they take to respond to customers' queries. But guess that's because the Island itself works at a slow pace. Overall was a nice experience and really enjoyed the typical rodriguan dance
