My husband and I stayed at Cocobay Resort for 5 nights in early November for a special birthday celebration. This resort is fabulous! We wanted a quiet, laid back holiday, and that is what we got. Our cabin (#36) was lovely with a magnificant view of the ocean. Our bed was quite comfortable and the mosquito netting is very much needed and works just fine. We never felt hot at night, the ceiling fan did the job. We also enjoyed not having a phone or TV in the room; you really felt like you were away from it all. The grounds of the resort are beautiful and as one other reviewer stated - well laid out, very clean, and tidy. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. David at the bar is a gem. Blondelle that cooks the eggs for breakfast, and fish for lunch is a sweetheart. Phyllis at the front desk is lovely. In fact, all of the staff are great. We enjoyed being able to walk to a couple of different beaches close by (the one around the corner from Dennis' Bar is basically deserted). In the other direction, walk the beach to The Nest.
If you are looking for a busy, noisy, action-packed property, then this might not be the place for you. If you are looking for an intimate, quite, chilled out vacation, then do go and experience Cocobay for yourself. You won't be disappointed.
The island of Antigua is beautiful, and the people are very friendly. We hired a taxi driver for a half day and saw a good portion of the island, including English Harbour, Shirley Heights, Nelson's Dockyard.
We will be back.
