Stayed at Cocobay in July/August 2006.
Read many reviews,some good,some bad we thought it was fantastic!!
Rooms were simple but superb, big bed and net, open shower room, hammock on balcony, wondrful views. No air conditioning was not a problem - fan plus the breeze kept us cool.
Staff were really helpful especially Leroy from the restaurant.
The food was spot on, buffet breakfast, lunch and a la carte dinner.
Egg chef at brekfast, good choice for lunch( burgers, fish, salads, pasta, fruit etc.)
Dinner served from 7pm to 9pm - we thought first class- always a good choice- served by good staff
Talking about staff, make the effort and they turn up trumps( we were impressed by their friendliness, even thogh they need a little coaxing). What you give is what you get, be miserable and what do you expet back!!
Pool lovely, beach ideal.
If you want a little bit more action , walk alog the beach to Jolly Beach resort( you will soon want to return to COcobay), here you will find a BIG hotel, casino and a marina, graet if thats what you want. It is a nice walk and a pleasant change, but we always enjoyed the walk back ^%"home"
Yes , the beach is public and so what, it is nice to meet the locals, they wre great!!
Taxis are a little expensive , but the drivers are a mine of info, and are very helpfgul.We hired PiPi and he took us loads of places - well worth it!!
If you can go to see the carnival absoluty brilliant-( virgin rep Marleen- is a gem)
The cricket is well worth a visit too. We saw the 20/20 series and that was like watching the carnival again, the music and atmosprere is out of this world
Overall we found the island, hotel and people infectious.
Remember wuat you give is what you receive.
Will be certainly going back!!!!!
