Stayed here for 3 nights in early November. The staff is lovely and very friendly. The general manager is a gem. The units are rustic and were pretty much what I expected based on reviews and comments. We stayed in one of the units (#12 if I remember correctly) with an infinity edge plunge pool. Our view was spectacular but the pool was already missing pieces of tile and they have just been done!! Our showerhead was rusty and about to fall off but the water pressure was very good. The bed was extremely hard and caused me great distress as my body did not respond positively -- in fact I was in pain.
Food: Dinners were gourmet. We thoroughly enjoyed them and especially the chocolate creme brulee - it was to die for. Breakfast was just fine and lunch was the weakest connection of the 3 meals. Drinks at the bar were great.
Beaches: These were lovely. You could walk to 3 different beaches which was quite nice. The pool area was small but very nice and we enjoyed this as well.
Bugs: Oh My God! They were horrific. We had read the reviews before going so made sure to bring spray with deet as well as mosquito coils. Did not help much as we were bitten quite a lot and then very itchy to boot.
Overall Cocobay has many redeeming qualities and is romantic. Unfortunately for us we will not return as being in pain from the bed and being eaten alive by the bugs is not something we care to repeat.
