Cocos versus CocoBay

I am looking for a nice, fairly quiet (and not too large place) for our honeymoon coming up. I have looked at a few islands... one being Antigua. I keep reading about several places including Cocos and CocoBay...

Can anyone tell me which they would recommend and why?

We like good food, a nice beach that is not overly rough, some seclusion (doesnt have to feel like we are the only two on the planet... but at least not like I have to be up at 6 am to get a lounger), and some place that will be memorable.

Thanks in advance

Hello and congradulations.. We just came home from 2 weeks @ Cocos.

During our stay at Cocos, we spent some time with a couple staying at Cocobay on the Creole cruise lunch and I have to say that Cocos tops Cocobay.

Smaller resort with 5* service. Great beach... no lounge chair roulette.. GREAT FOOD and excellent rooms.

Our room looked over at cocobay resort. Cocobay is very similar but I liked the smaller resort.

The other couple said they chose Cocobay because of the plunge pool but confessed they didn't really use it ... you really don't spend time in the room when the beach is so fantastic.

Remember that Cocos rooms are uphill and if this is a problem with mobility then you should choose Cocobay. But that would be the only reason in my opinion.

Hope this helps... let us know what you choose

I too had this same question in my mind. I opted for Cocobay in the end after reading the reviews. They are both fantastic propeties and I dont think you can go wrong with either but the infinity pool at Cocobay won it for me.

I have booked two weeks, one at cocobay and may do the second week at Coco's.

from the research we did before our honeymoon, either way is a good choice.

we picked cocobay because it was a bit bigger and I believe we got a better price. I can only talk about cocobay since we stayed there and not coco's. I would be biased opinion.

You would have more options at cocobay but coco's is just a hair closer to Jolly Harbour.

Going to Coco Bay for our honeymoon, originally wanted Cocos, but turns out they were fully booked, so they offered Coco Bay. Any thoughts if you've returned from your trip?

sorry cocobay for me too couldn't fault if in any way . Cocos across the bay looked very rundown compared to it .

Only judging by looking at it from Valley Church beach so the back end of it .

And at cocobay you get the choice of Valley beach ,small ffreyes and big ffreyes .

Not sure about the loung chair roulette mentioned as didnt find it !

Infinity pool ,plunge pool if you want it,we did , and the best All inclusive food Ive ever found .

Only buffet twice a week the rest is wait to be shown your table and waiter served a la carte type menu .

Mr Gore is a LEGEND look out for him .

Turquoise sea and soft white sand .... But I am biased havent stayed at cocos .
