We visited Cocolapalm for the first time last June. Overall, we had a great time. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The Junior Suite was perfect for our family of four. A very large room w/two queen beds, table w/four chairs, sink, refrigerator, flat screen TV, large bathroom w/double sinks, and a HUGE shower with a shower head on either side. We were on the second floor which provided a great deal of privacy. We had requested a room away from the road prior to our visit, but were placed pretty close to the road. They offered to move us after two days, but we opted to stay. We could hear some car honks, and motorcycles the first day, but by the second day it didn’t bother us.
The hotel was not at full capacity so the beach and restaurant were never crowded. Shirley, who was usually our waiter, always took great care of us. We had breakfast vouchers and tried several things on the menu such as the pancakes, French toast, and ackee and saltfish. The majority of the items were just OK, but we loved the banana bread (and I don’t even like bananas)! We would venture out for lunch or dinner and had a few great lunches, at great prices next door at Chill Awhile. They also had awesome frozen fruit punch!
Coco had a great expanse of beach and excellent security. We all loved going from the beach to the pool all day long. We often had the pool to ourselves due to the light occupancy! Due to it being “low season”, we did not encounter many beach vendors at all. I actually wished there were a few more.
Cocolapalm has beautiful greenery and flowers, and is very clean. It’s a great intimate, laid back, safe and affordable place to stay. We will definitely be back!
