My fiance and I spent 5 days at Cocobay this March. It was absolute paradise! I did a lot of research before choosing this hotel, and I always kept coming back to this resort in my searching. The views from the resort are breathtaking - the turquoise water, white sandy beaches. What really makes this resort so special is the staff. They will go the extra mile to make sure you are taken care of. As an example, we were 10 mins away in a cab leaving the resort for the airport when the manager called the cab driver (he somehow tracked us down) to let us know that we left our iPAD on the balcony!!! So we were able to turn around and get it!
We loved our stay so much, we are planning to go back and have our wedding there next year.
Some things to consider:
-It's a quiet resort, so don't expect a part every night
-Bring Cash (there is no bank machine at the resort, and you'll be surprised how quickly you'll go through cash for tips/excursions)
-Treat yourself one night to dinner at Sheer Rock
-Treat yourself to the private beach dinner - we did this our last night and it was the perfect way to end an amazing trip
Also, find out when the cruise ships are NOT in town and head to St. John's for a half day. Be sure to go to the Hemmingways Cuban Cafe - it's delish!
