Cocobay is gifted with a great location on a headland with stunning views. As others have said the individual cottages are rustic, quaint and pretty. We loved their space, privacy and design. The resorts 2 infinity pools are lovely, and the public space inc restaurant make the best of the views.
The things that disappointed us, mainly due to our prior perception based on trip advisor feedback were: the food is good, but limited in choice. 1 meat, 1 fish, 1 pasta and 1 veg option at dinner. No seafood ever, unless you want to pay the £18 supplement to have prawns or lobster, which is excessive for a supplement per person! Lunch is a buffet with a selection of 1 meat and 1 fish again and salad, with may be a hot veg or a hot meat or fish in the above. All more than adequate, and cooked nicely, but not the seafood and choice others have spoken of.
Secondly, the beach is ok, but not stunning, with turquoise water, which of course is beautiful. However, water v cloudy when we were there ( could have been weather related), with no snorkelling potential.
Staff are lovely - a v pleasant stay. The resort is mixed uk, American and Italian generally, with many repeat guests. Good intimate resort for a weeks break.
