Needed a place for my hardworking Hubby to relax, and get some much needed rest. We didn't need anywhere that had a lot of kids running around, or a lot of noisy people, or loud entertainment. So based on the reviews, I decided to book at Coyaba. I could count on 1 hand how many kids we saw for the week we were there. The property is small, but it has a nice, quiet, and calm atmosphere.
Our room was very spacious.......we especially liked the ocean view from the balcony. The view was a bit blocked by the overgrown trees that desperately need pruning. But other than that, it's worth it. The front desk staff were very courteous. The restaurant staff were a bit slow. One day, it took us 45 minutes to get 2 sandwiches. We had dinner only 1 night and that was the last time we ate a meal there. Unfortunately, the food was never worth the wait. Thankfully it's not an all-inclusive, or I would've been pissed! Nice touch having the manager's social on Monday night, happy hour on Friday night (2 for 1 drinks) and daily afternoon tea. All included hor d'oeuvres & fruit. There's a supermarket (with a pink awning) 5 mins drive away (Blue Diamond). It has a great fruit stand in front that has some GREAT seasonal local fruit. We stocked up for the room.
Whenever we were on the resort, we spent most of our time laying on the beach. Other than that, we were all over the island!
