We experience and amazing 3 days vacations at this beautiful, well located resort, the rooms are clean, spacious and with great amenities; the pool, beach and all public areas very well taken care off, the food and bar services were really good (this is an all inclusive resort) and we were very happy with all the food and drink services; but above all this every member of their staff made us feel welcome, they were genuine, very friendly, helpful and always smiling! Thank you so much for an excellent service

Hotel's Favorite
I give 5 stars! The staff made us feel welcomed and they were genuinely happy to make sure our stay was perfect! It’s not like your typical hotel. You stay in these cute cottages with amazing views! I booked a private breakfast by the black rock pool which was amazing. Private dinner on the beach was beyond perfect and our host was spectacular! Along with good vibes, we got to experience amazing food! The food was not like typical hotel food. The presentation and portions were perfect. We were able to have a four course meal without feeling stuffed! We ventured off the resort which was a little scary if you’ve never driven on the left side of the road. Other than that, our vacation was perfect! Make sure to get tested for Covid and have negative results when you arrive at the airport bc they do ask for the results. I was pleased with the precautions taken to ensure that everyone getting on the island was safe. I didn’t feel unsafe at all and so glad to have enjoyed the time at Cocobay! We highly recommend CocoBay. These views don’t need filters 😍

Although our holiday was cut short by various airline problems I cannot fault the hotel or its staff who are a credit to the resort. This was our 2nd visit and no doubt there will be a 3rd in future. Location is great with choices of pools and the beach, food choices and quality are spot on and as mentioned previously the team are faultless. One small downside is a couple of very loud yound Americans, especially when fuelled up on cocktails, but this was compounded by the fact that the weather was poor and guests were cocooned in the bar area together.

Our first visit was in 2003 and so lovely. After years of kids holidays, now the last at uni we decided to relive our honeymoon. I was a bit worried...you don’t expect to surpass your honeymoon and thought maybe things had changed beyond recognition after 17 years? Not so....Amazing as we remember, understated luxury...what we like, no bling, food is delicious and not buffet style thankfully but selected from menus. The grounds have matured and are so beautiful. The staff are wonderful, so friendly and helpful. Location is second to none....the views are amazing! Well done Coco Bay for staying true to your belief in what makes a really fabulous holiday and keeping is so.

This was our 4th re-arranged holiday destination due to Covid restrictions however we were so pleased that we ended up at Cocobay. The hotel, the grounds and rooms were all beautiful. This is definitely a hotel that attracts couples looking for 'insta-perfect' pictures. The hotel has one main beach which was stunning. There is a line of beautiful washed up shells from the reef everyday which just adds to the feeling that you've arrived on a perfect tropical paradise beach. There are some beach vendors but it's the same few that are there every day and they are not at all pushy. They had some great deals on trips and some nice things to buy. Be aware though that they only accept cash. We hadn't brought much with us as we didn't think we would be spending anything but once we got there we were tempted by the horse-riding and the jet skiing. You can get cash out from the hotel reception, but they charge $20 US. When I asked, they had run out so my partner and another guest shared a lift with one of the vendors to the local supermarket to get cash. The cash machines give out Eastern Caribbean dollars. Not a problem until you get back to the UK and HSBC (yes the world's local bank) didn’t accept Eastern Caribbean dollars to change back! So my advice would be to take a lot more US$ than you think you need as they can be easily changed back once home and there are some amazing excursions. The food was nice although don't expect large portion sizes. There are a number of courses which makes it just about enough not to get hungry. There are snacks available from the bars during the day too. We stayed in a deluxe pool cottage which was lovely. The pool was colder than the main pools though, so we didn’t get much use out of it. The main issue with the room however was the bathroom. It had doors which open onto the balcony area to let the light in, which was fine in the day. At night however, there is only one small strip light, so the bathroom had the feeling of a dark cave. Not great for getting ready for the evening. I'd definitely recommend bringing some extra lighting if you like to have good make-up lighting etc. The shower was also the type, which is attached in place to the wall, which I don't personally like. I would have preferred it if there was a detachable shower head. The shower plughole was also a route for cockroaches to come in and out during the night! The sound of the insects as soon as the sun went down took a while to get used to as well! One thing the hotel really could do with changing is the check-in process. I understand it has changed due to Covid but after travelling and wearing a mask for around 13 hours we just wanted to relax and get to the room. Upon arrival, we were asked if we had completed the online check-in. We hadn’t and hadn’t received any email asking us to do so. We had to connect to the Wi-Fi and upload a ridiculous amount of information in order to check in. This involved taking pictures of our passports, covid tests, finding flight numbers from bits of paper that were blowing around in the wind etc. The whole thing was extremely stressful and the WIFI was slow. The photos of the covid tests seemed a bit unnecessary seeing as we'd just shown them at the airport in order to get into the country. I understand why the hotel is doing a 'remote' check in but we could have done this the day before while we were more relaxed and had time before we left for out flight. We didn’t have an email asking us to do this and yet this would have saved us time and stress. That really is the only thing I can criticise though. The hotel, staff and the location were all absolutely amazing. The other guests were super friendly, and everyone seemed so relaxed to have escaped whatever was going on in their respective countries. Guests were predominantly from the UK and USA. This is a hotel which definitely attracts a younger customer and the pictures on the hotels social media sites are of guests not models. This is the type of guest the hotel seems to attract.
