“Often sought, seldom found!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

My husband and I and our 21 year old daughter from South Africa have just spent 4 days at Coconut Cove Resort and absolutely loved it!! Upon arrival we requested a different room and Nick arranged everything efficiently within minutes.the pool area is gorgeous with waterfall feature and comfy sunbeds and umbrellas and continuous music to keep the holiday "vibe" going.The reception is well equipped with brochures and travel advice as well as many coupons for discount at restaurants and discount on cocktails at "happy hour" They also serve free tea and coffee all day which is really nice. We met the manager of housekeeping Theresa who was more than willing to assist with our request. The apartment was brand new,spotless,modern with full kitchen area,lovely granite tops with all utensils supplied including a dishwasher. The resort has a coin operated laundry situated downstairs which is really convenient. The beds were so comfy and our room was serviced every day and replenished with really upmarket bathroom toiletries. We travel a lot and have stayed at many hotels and have seldom found one that met all our needs and lovely staff too. Upon returning home from a restaurant late last night, there was an invitation in our room, inviting us to a complimentary barbeque down at the pool today which was fabulous. The food was excellent and plentiful, drinks were free and the staff were as always very accommodating.The location of this hotel is excellent, walking distance to some superb restaurants, long beach across the road, suntrolleys and shuttles to take you to Northbeach area if you wish. There are also shops and a convenience store next door to this hotel which is great if you need anything. We hardly used our car while staying here. Tonight we are walking one block to Shepphards which apparently is a fabulous restaurant. This resort has it all....and excellent value for money as well. We would like to thank Nick and his most competent staff for the effort they went to to make our stay as enjoyable as it has been. We are checking out tomorrow but will definately be back and will always recommend this hotel to our friends.

Room Tip: There is no road noise from this hotel but a pool facing room with large balcony is the best!

Debbie,

I couldn't have said it better myself. We are truly a property this is "Often sought, seldom found." Our location is a hidden treasure on Clearwater Beach and I am glad that you found us and were able to enjoy everything our property has to offer.

I appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with everyone. I couldn't ask for a better staff. They truly are willing to go above and beyond to make sure each guest has a memorable visit.

We look forward to seeing you and your family during your next visit to the Clearwater Beach area.

As a first time traveller to the Clearwater Area, choosing a hotel was really taking a gamble. This time it worked!

I believe in the States, you would call Coconut Cove Resort: a motel and not a hotel, and as long as that is clear, I do not believe anyone can complain about the place.

The rooms are situated both around the swimming pool area and the perimeter of the complex, with the car park on the ground floor below.

Our room consisted of a bedroom with 2 x double beds (so OK for us and 2 small children), bathroom, lounge-kitchen with the majority of day to day appliances that make a stay easier. The rooms were kept clean, towels replenished daily, so on this score, we had no complaints at all.

The swimming pool area was just a short walk in the complex, to an area which had adequate pool chairs to comfortably sit 25 guests, so that and the pool was good. Also the BBQ organised Friday lunchtime by the staff there was a nice classy touch on their behalf.

Apart from that, they had communal washing machines, coffee available, and the office team was always helpful.

Outside of the complex, you basically have 2 beach choices. One at their sister hotel which is located about 200 yards away, which has a small but nice sandy beach, never too crowded and the 2nd choice being the main public beach at Clearwater, which is approximately 400-yards from the hotel. This beach is very big, but at least on weekends, very busy as well.

Dining around the hotel is reasonable, including a local supermarket (50-yards away) as well as a Subway, Dunkin Donuts, and pizza restaurant also no more than 100-yards away.

Whilst I would suggest renting a car during your stay here, you could though, still survive comfortably without one. At approx. $250 a day (for the family) I believe we got good value for money here and would recommend.

We just left Coconut Cove. We were there with another family of 4. The suites were perfect for families of 4. They were super clean and beds were more than cozy. Since we cooked most meals at the room, it was great to have everything we need in the kitchen. We spent most of our time at the wonderful pool. We even started our days there by bringing breakfast down for everyone. Kids never tired of swimming, and if they wanted rest .. The room was just a few steps away. The staff was very in tune to our needs.. Even offering us towels when we were swimming at night. Nick in the office was especially helpful with helping us with information about the beaches and cab services. We did visit the crowded beach one day but we were happy just staying at the pool all day. Great resturants are within walking distance and there is a Walgreens, liquor store and a nail salon just steps away from the "resort" . Both families LOVED this place.

It is great to hear that both families enjoyed their stay with us. Our suites are perfect for families, especially when they are staying several days because of the additional space and fully equipped kitchens.

I am glad to hear that the staff was attentive to your needs and that Nick was especially helpful. We honestly have an outstanding team at the Coconut Cove.

Thank you for choosing the Coconut Cove!!!

We stayed here for four nights of our fly drive of Florida and I was very impressed with the accommodation. It had everything we could want to make our stay comfortable. The staff were very good and helpful. We had a deluxe queen room and it may be worth the extra for one of these as they seem to have more equipment. The pool area is nice with warm water and a landscaped area with waterfalls.
The beach is easily accessible just across the road through their sister hotel, not far at all, just 2 mins.
The situation of the hotel is just out from the hustle and bustle of Pier 60 but it is close enough for a nice stroll in to the centre. Being just outside makes it much quieter as Clearwater itself is now much more built up than our last visit several years ago.
We were invited to a complementary BBQ on one of our days around the pool, with plenty of good food, ribs etc and even 2 beers per person FOR FREE, there is also bottled water by the pool for you to help yourself, what more could you ask for?
We would definitely stay there again and I would recommend it to a friend.
