“a bit expensive”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

seems expensive for solo traveler; but one gets to grab a cool all-inclusive deal it evens out. they have all amenities and very helpful staff. that said, they're located at crown point which is the center of all touristy action. consider this if you're looking for a retreat.

My wife and I stayed at Coco Reef for the week 3/4 - 10/4/13 having booked an "all-inclusive" deal at the last minute through Tropical Sky (who I must say were a real pleasure to deal with - most helpful throughout and very easy to talk to/book).

We stayed in a standard garden view room overlooking the pool (very quiet) -we had a large kingsize bed which was very comfortable - bathroom had shower over a small bath - very nice. Room spotlessly cleaned every afternoon and then another clean during turn down service in the evening. Beach area (fringed with palm trees and ample sun loungers with shade) with lovely soft, white sand, and walking into sea (manmade lagoon area with no seaweed/very safe to swim in) to cool down was really nice - water gin clear with hundreds of tropical fish to view (didn't need snorkel gear as water so clear) - we even fed the fish by hand with bread - truly incredible! Very nice beach restaurant and a-la-carte restaurant in the evening served an excellent choice of food. There were lots of extra touches, such as waitress service on the beach, fresh fruit served on the beach and many extra gifts provided in the room. Met some lovely people at the resort (especially Lisa/Sue) and can't wait to return to this lovely hotel - will be doing so very soon!! I can recommend this resort for a totally relaxing and quiet stay - not much to do in the evenings but this was just what we wanted - total relaxation. Lots of trips can be taken straight from the beach of the hotel and Tobago is certainly the unspoilt Caribbean island we had hoped for.

Our final comment must go to the superb ambience created by the Manager - Eric and Assistant Manager - Kirton, who really went above and beyond any other hotel we have ever stayed at, to make this holiday one of our most memorable and enjoyable. Their attention to detail was first class and will ensure our return booking. A big, big thank you to both of you and all of your tremendous staff.

We stayed at the Coco Reef hotel for just two nights. Yes it was a pleasant hotel, with friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean yes dated but so are most of the hotels in the caribbean. We did pay for the all inclusive food and drinks, no complaints, good selection of food and drinks for all tastes. The only thing which i was not happy with was you have to pay for internet use and it is expensive. In this day and age internet is cheap (yes even in the caribbean!). The hotel package is not cheap so i think that the internet should be included in the price you pay for the hotel.
We did not use the pool or beach but they both looked lovely. The airport is just around the corner, walking distance if you have hand luggage.
Over all a good stay.

Loved this hotel, the location, the service, the food, the room is everything you want from a Caribbean holiday. We came to relax and enjoy each others company which is exactly what this hotel allowed us to do.
We had a beautiful sea view room which was beautifully decorated and clean. The choice of two evening restaurants gives you the opportunity to go out for a casual buffet meal or dress up for the a la carte restaurant. The staff bring you cocktails on the beach and take drinks orders without you leaving the sunbed. The beach is quiet and the sea is calm.
The hotel looks after everyone really well and I look forward to returning

Mixture of good and bad! Maybe three and a half stars is more appropriate.
Rooms are very big, some have two kingsize beds in, all have room for them. Rooms fine, but a little tired as with many caribbean hotels. WARNING!! If you are offered rooms 500 to 506 or 600 to 606, REFUSE unless you are an extremely sound sleeper. They are in a separate block that fronts onto the dogrun of a neighbouring property, and the rooms don't have double glazing. The dogs howled all night some nights. Complaints to the hotel received little action, and full occupancy meant we couldn't be moved. Apparently, it's been a problem for years, in which case they've had time to sort out a solution.
There are a number of restaurants and bars, all very pleasant, and the beach bar is a greast place for lunch and food varies from ordinary to very good - different chefs? Food is a bit repetetive. Service is ok - some try hard and don't quite make it but smile. Others seem disinterested. T
Transfer from the airport is just 5 mins =- you could walk! Yet there are no noises from aircraft.
Hotel is a stroll from nearby bars etc, but you wouldn't choose to eat in most of them.
Beach is in a private lagoon with a man made sea break forming a reef. This is the big win. For over a week, a high swell meant you couldn't swim on most beaches, with red flags up. But at coco reef, even the kids could swim in total safety. The snorkeling on the "reef" is suprisingly good too, with parrot fish, pipe fish, sergeant majors (of course!) and many others I can't name. If you can't swim, you can walk up, put your face in the water and see them! In clement weather, nearby beaches offer better snorkeling over abundant live coral, but the hotel is an easy option.
Caribbean prices at the hotel mean it's worth going all inclusive or at least half board, especially as eating out options are limited (as they are at all Tobago hotels)
Having looked at most hotels on the island while I was there, I'd choose the coco reef again for a mix of goodish food, nice surroundings and guaranteed snorkeling - But WATCH THOSE ROOMS!

This hotel has a colonial charm, and is in a wonderful setting. The beach is perfect for families with small children as the man made reef has made a lagoon which has a lot of shallow areas, although deeper by the main reef. Fish are easily seen in this lagoon and on the other side of the reef also.

We were on a B and B tarrif, and were pleasantly surprised by the breakfast which we found to be excellent with plenty of choice and professional friendly staff.

We also had a superior garden room, but we had a shower in the bath. The bed was a king sized bed and very comfortable, and the room was a good size. We had no problems with anything in this department.

I would give the hotel excellent, however the food in the evening was very expensive. This was no problem to us at all as we went out every night and enjoyed the local food. If you stay here La Cantina has excellent Pizzas cooked in a wood oven.

The island is wonderful and carhire is cheap. We spent a day travelling around the island. The people were so friendly.

I would thoroughly recommend this hotel. Ava, our travel rep was really helpful, and the deal we got through golden holidays was really good too. I would also recommend them as they were so helpful even though we booked only two days before travelling.

Just back from our holiday in Trinidad and Tobago. We spent a few days in Coco Reef, we knew the hotel had a perfect location (I spent some days here many years ago), with a lovely beach and crystal clear water. That's all you get if you book a holiday here. We stayed in a superior double room with garden view. The room was large enough to accommodate me and my two teenaged children, but the condition of it was terrible! Old furniture, dim lights, an extremely small bathroom with no shower, just a bathtub with a curtain (!) and no place to put your stuff. The room doesn't have WIFI, you can only use internet in the hotel lobby.
Breakfast was poor, small selection of food, especially if you wish to stay on a healthy low fat diet.
We also had lunch, buffet style, which was not well displayed and again with an extremely small selection of fresh salads or healthy options other than burgers and fries.
Staff at the front desk were not helpfull at all, they didn't know how to help me find a restaurant for the evening and they were not able to sort any problem at all and they didn't make any effort whatsoever. I think I deserved more from a hotel that pride themself to be "the best resort in the caribbean" and especially after I spent 500usd per night for a superior room with garden view, breakfast included. I was very disappointed.

Room Tip: Choose a room with sea view. The scenery is the only good thing of this place.
