My husband and I stayed at Coco Plum May 19 through May 24, 2007. We found it to be just as the website and Michelle described.
Our cabana was comfortable, clean, and cool. It was my understanding it was one of the newer ones, and it was far enough away from the bar so we could not hear the music at night. It was very tastefully decorated yet simple enough not to be fussy. The island was immaculate. It was raked each day so there was no debris from trees, etc. The food was great. I had requested two food substitutions and the staff made those substitutions available to me. I forgot to request decaf coffee and all that was available was regular coffee. The fruit was wonderful and on more than one occasion, I asked for more. No problem. We did not have a bad meal while we were there. The potato salad is the best you will ever eat! What can I say about the staff? Everyone was so very warm and accomodating. They did everything they could to make our stay relaxing and peaceful. So to Olivia, Linda, Jose, Robert, Steven, Darinton, Delsia, and all the others we did not meet "Thank You." Now the beach......OH MY GOODNESS! The water is so warm and wonderful. We went to the end of the island to the cove, and the water is knee deep. Stayed there all day one day! We took our floats so we lay on the floats and drifted for hours. We found a wonderful place to snorkel at the far end of the next cay. The water is a little deeper and the fish were around the pilings which have been placed upright in the water. The best place to snorkel is where a tree is leaning almost on the water in the same area. There is a small beach/cove and there are lots of small fish around and under the tree. If you decide to walk and not kayak, we suggest wearing sturdy shoes with no drain holes in the bottom. The grass or whatever is very dry and can get up in your shoe as you walk. Those little sticky ends hurt if they stick in your foot!!!!! Tipping....they have prepared a list and it is in the room. We found it to be reasonable, and we tipped accordingly. There are no televisions, telephones, or newspapers, so if you need current events (as we do), it would be a good idea to take your cell phone if you plan to stay on the island during the whole trip. We went into town one day and managed to find out what was happening in the world on that day. Gotta have that news!!! We met some really nice people from California, Louisiana, and Missouri (you know who you are) and some others from I don't know where. The island accomodates fourteen people, so if you want to retain your anonymity, go somewhere else. Be sure to take BUG SPRAY. Those little black bugs can be pesky. To sum up....we really enjoyed our vacation. We would go there again.
