“Tired but still excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

This was our third visit to Coco Reef, we last visited 6 years ago. Nothing had changed, the food, beach & service was excellent as we had remembered.

The hotels location is one of the best we have experienced with the private beach and sea being shallow and safe to swim in for all abilities.

The hotel is now approaching 20 years old and it's age is starting to show, it would benefit from new furniture, bedding & bathroom suites to bring it back to its former glory. The hotel is always very clean!

If you want to come to tobago for a great location, good food, safe beach for kids with a house reef filled with tropical fish. This is the place for you. If a modern room and Internet access is more important then I would recommend the magdelana grand.

Looking forward to a return visit!

Room Tip: The rooms over looking the pool are best, with a sea view, quiet and not too far away from the centr...

Coco reef hotel is a hotel in Tobago. It is about 3 minutes drive from the ANR Robinson Airport and walking distance from Storebay where you can partake of local cuisine. There is free parking on the compound. The ocean view rooms have spectacular views.

For the business traveller, the Internet service can let you down and the signal may never reach your room. The lighting in the room is not for heavy reading. There is a reading room just by the reception but only one computer was working. On mornings the demand for the computer can be heavy.

There is a private pool in the sea for hotel guest but this overlooks the dining room and is not very private.

The hotel could do with a bit of upgrade . It started off as a five star hotel and is now a three star. Simple things like upgrade of the towels and the mattresses would make a big difference.

The staff are very well trained and are consistently courteous, their response time was wonderful...

Probably not out of sink with the rest of Tabago all abit old and faded. Staff very nice. Pool poor. Sea lagoon nice.

Stupid rules like having to wear full trousers in resturant at night (30 degrees C and 80 percent humidity) which was very basic in any case - so last century!

Worst of all would not vall airline on our behalf unless charging $5 a min.

Very Expensive for what it was.

Would not return or recommend.

You can do a lot better than this!

We have just returned from the coco reef with our 2 girls aged 6 and 8 yrs, we had one of our most chilled holidays ever. Tobago is a very laided back & friendly island where everyone says hello. Coco reef itself epitomises this ethos. She is an old Caribbean lady of a hotel were you still wear trousers for dinner, my husband was reluctant but he forgot his misgivings when he tasted the excellent food. The staff all work as a team & give a very personal service where nothing is too much trouble. They learned our girls names and made them feel very special.

The highlight of our week was the round the island tour with Steven from the hotel. He does personal day tours for 150 US dollars & is worth every penny. His enthusiasm for the hotel and his island are infectious. He made sure he had snacks for the girls, drinks and even surprised them with ice cream, & us with lovely flavoured shandy! His driving was very safe & he dropped us at Jemma's for lunch for local food with a great view(extra). Nothing was too much trouble & the water fall was great.

The hotel itself is on a stunning beach & within walking distance of crown point for boats to bucco reef & nylon pool (the boat Miss jo did a good trip) and also pigeon point. We choose all inclusive & were not disappointed. All restaurants & cafe coco had great service & food quality. The rooms themselves are what you see in the photos. In need of a refresh but very clean with old fashioned Kane furnishings. Our room didn't smell and was cleaned sometimes twice a day with refreshed towels as we needed. Our girls loved the pool & we found it clean.
Cocos strengths are its position, beach, food, atmosphere and its staff. If you don't need a pristine room you will have found one of the most relaxing hotels in the Caribbean. We will hopefully be back.

We have just returned from the wonderful Coco Reef. Our 6th stay at this wonderful hotel and the third year running.

The hotel is located within a 2 min drive from the airport. No stress with a lengthy transfer

Eric and all the staff as usual went out of their way to make our stay extra special again.

All the staff are friendly and polite and we cannot fault them in any way. Great food, and the cocktails were amazing. If you want a totally relaxing chilled out holiday, then the Coco Reef is the place to go.

You don't even have to leave your sun bed to get a drink, with Trevor and Nichola working hard on the beach everyday bringing water, drinks and fruit.

Too many staff to name personally but special thanks to Patrice, both Alicia's Kerlon, Erlin, Tricia, Melissa Angela and of course Trevor and Nichola, Gary and not forgetting Eric for making a wonderful holiday.

We met lots of friends, some who like us were Coco Repeaters.

Can't wait to return next year.

We have just returned from lovely Tobago staying at the Coco Reef, and I have to say the customer service from Eric and his team is second to none, nothing was too much trouble from the moment we checked in. The hotel is in a fantastic location, if you want a totally relaxing holiday then I can't recommend this enough, we booked bed and breakfast and for us it was the right choice as there are places to eat not too far away, the hotel even has it's own cafe just up the road, the meals there are amazing, however all inclusive is great value if you want plenty to eat & drink (we did eat in one night) the meal was first class and the cocktails are simply amazing.
Thank you to all at the Coco Reef for making our holiday simply wonderful, we will be back.
