We just returned from a wonderful week at Coco's. This is the place to truly sit back, enjoy a beautiful view, tasty tropical cocktails, and fantastic food. The resort is intimate and just the right size. We stayed in a room at the top of the hill with A/C. Views were stunning and the outdoor shower was one of the highlights of the trip. Showering while looking over the magnificent bay was awesome. The beach is perfect and at the quiet end of the cove. It was never crowded. The beach bar is perfect. The food in the restaurant is fantastic. Plenty of options and they change every day. But on to the truly best part of the hotel, which has been mentioned in numerous reviews, and that is the staff. They make everyone feel like family and were always so friendly and helpful. They made a fantastic trip very special.
Let me address some of the "concerns" that have been posted on Coco's:
The hill. It is pretty steep but is not overly exerting to scale. And once you get up to the room, the view makes it worth it. I must say that we did make a conscious effort not to forget something in the room. It would not be recommended for anyone with mobility problems.
The music from neighboring property. We heard it some of the nights we were there. It can be a bit loud, but there is nothing the hotel can do about that. But it did not go until 4am. It ended at a decent hour. If it is that bothersome, order a few Antigua smiles from the bar before bed. You will sleep like a baby.
Bugs. You are in the tropics. Wear bug spray. Complaining about the bugs is akin to complaining about the snow when you visit the Rockies.
Too Rustic. It is not the Ritz Carlton, nor is it trying to be. Other than sleeping, we were not in our room more than an hour and a half per day while getting ready for dinner, and most of that time was spent sitting on the balcony enjoying the view. Part of the charm of the hotel is the charm provided by the rustic-ness of it.
Coco's is a great place to go to RELAX, enjoy spectacular views, drink great drinks, enjoy good food, be spoiled by a stupendous and friendly staff, and forget about the world. No TV's and limited internet access. That is a good thing people. Disconnect from the world for a few days. You will survive. We hope to be back sooner rather than later.
Please feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or concerns that I can address.
