From the moment we saw the island approaching from the boat we were stoked. I guess I hadn't realized that Coco Plum is on a private island, as in there is nothing but Coco Plum on this island. I never had to lift a finger here except to get my drink to my mouth. They took our luggage to the rooms while we were given a frozen drink and listened to what they had to offer.
Staff- amazing. Everyone was so nice, they all knew our names within a day. Always willing to help and make sure our stay was fantastic.
Lodging- your private cabana will be no more than 30 feet from the ocean and everyone has a full ocean view. It's air conditioned. It's cleaned every day. Bed is comfortable. And it has it's own 5G water jug in case your worried about the local water.
Food- Since we were on our honeymoon I was happy to find out there were no food choices at all. I was a little worried because I can be a bit picky but I ate everything except one dessert they set in front of me. Every other dinner was seafood, the others were either pork or beef or chicken. My favorite lunch was the baked chicken with grilled cheese day. My favorite breakfast was the egg burrito, and favorite dessert was avocado pie.
Drinks- you will find some thing you like. I don't like pineapple or coconut so I wasn't sure what I'd be drinking from the mixed drinks but they have a great list to start with and I liked all of them even some with pineapple juice. And the local beer is good.
Entertainment- we did the zip line/cave tube trip, long drive but the cave tubing was great. The zip line is the same old zip line adventure you can do anywhere. We also kayaked, snorkeled, scuba dived, and laid around on the beach. On Saturday night Coco Plum brought out a local music group with drummers and singers. There was a bonfire and dancing- fun.
If you are looking for adventure this may not be the place for you. We were on a honeymoon so it was the perfect place to leave the wedding planning stress behind. The next time we want to take a break from it all we will be back.
