Mixture of good and bad! Maybe three and a half stars is more appropriate.
Rooms are very big, some have two kingsize beds in, all have room for them. Rooms fine, but a little tired as with many caribbean hotels. WARNING!! If you are offered rooms 500 to 506 or 600 to 606, REFUSE unless you are an extremely sound sleeper. They are in a separate block that fronts onto the dogrun of a neighbouring property, and the rooms don't have double glazing. The dogs howled all night some nights. Complaints to the hotel received little action, and full occupancy meant we couldn't be moved. Apparently, it's been a problem for years, in which case they've had time to sort out a solution.
There are a number of restaurants and bars, all very pleasant, and the beach bar is a greast place for lunch and food varies from ordinary to very good - different chefs? Food is a bit repetetive. Service is ok - some try hard and don't quite make it but smile. Others seem disinterested. T
Transfer from the airport is just 5 mins =- you could walk! Yet there are no noises from aircraft.
Hotel is a stroll from nearby bars etc, but you wouldn't choose to eat in most of them.
Beach is in a private lagoon with a man made sea break forming a reef. This is the big win. For over a week, a high swell meant you couldn't swim on most beaches, with red flags up. But at coco reef, even the kids could swim in total safety. The snorkeling on the "reef" is suprisingly good too, with parrot fish, pipe fish, sergeant majors (of course!) and many others I can't name. If you can't swim, you can walk up, put your face in the water and see them! In clement weather, nearby beaches offer better snorkeling over abundant live coral, but the hotel is an easy option.
Caribbean prices at the hotel mean it's worth going all inclusive or at least half board, especially as eating out options are limited (as they are at all Tobago hotels)
Having looked at most hotels on the island while I was there, I'd choose the coco reef again for a mix of goodish food, nice surroundings and guaranteed snorkeling - But WATCH THOSE ROOMS!
