We spent 10 days at this lovely hotel. It is set in beautiful grounds, right on the beach. This is a small hotel with only 38 rooms, all beach views. We arrived late in the afternoon and were met by a receptionist who greeted us with cold towels and Rum punch. We were taken to our accommodation on the second floor which was huge. There was a dining area, lounge area, kitchen and bedroom which had air conditioning. The rooms were well equipped but not exactly top-of-the-range. Everything worked well though; our fridge would chill water until ice was forming in it. We had a brand new A/C unit which worked very well with very little noise. The bed was quite comfortable unlike the hard mattresses you get in other hotels. The pool, bar, restaurant and TV room were well placed next to each other and you could use the internet free of charge in these public areas, unlike Cocobay. There are no radios, TV’s, or clocks in the bedrooms so it might be a good idea to bring a lap top and some DVD’s if you miss the small screen
The beach is lovely but the sea can be a little choppy, good if you are a confident swimmer. If you would prefer a change of scenery, try walking over to Deep bay beach. Walk to the entrance of the hotel and turn left. You can walk through the Royal Grand Antiguan Hotel if you ask their security guards nicely, but you cannot use their sunbeds.
The food at CBC is very good. There is a buffet at breakfast and lunch. Dinner was a set menu. Lobster and fillet steak cost extra at $25.00. The meals at Dinner can be on the small side so it would be a good idea to fill up at lunchtime. We did find the meals to be tasty and well presented.
There is no entertainment as such; there is a steel band on Sunday evening which is fabulous. There is also a soloist on Thursday at the Manager’s Cocktail party. The guests in the evening tend to gather around the bar in the evening for drinks and chats late into the night. You can also take the hotel’s shuttle into St. John’s for shopping which picks up at 9am and will bring you home at 12pm. A taxi into St. Johns costs 20$ for up to four people.
Coconut Beach is a lovely rustic hotel, but I would not describe it as pristine. There is a very relaxed and chilled out atmosphere here. The staff are friendly and helpful but there is more of a laid-back style here. Bernadette in the dining room was particularly friendly, always passing a kind word.
I would definitely recommend this hotel, particularly if you want to relax, be surrounded by friendly guests or if you are more on a budget. As a three star hotel I would have to give CBC top marks. A quick word about the mosquitoes, use bug spray every day and do not neglect to do this. The minute you do you will get bitten. Try using citronella oil when showering, we found this helpful. We were supposed to come back to CBC for two nights after a ten day break in Montserrat but unfortunately they were over-booked and we had to go to another hotel – Cocobay which I have already reviewed.
I would like to say a big thank you to Nicole and staff for a lovely, relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: Room 303a is huge with a seperate bedroom and air-conditioning. All rooms have great veiws facing the beach. Ground floor rooms open directly onto the beach

My husband and I have just returned from 3 amazing, relaxing weeks at the CBC.
Having been in Oct 2011 for 2wks, we decided to treat ourselves to 3 wks for Christmas and New Year 2012/13
This quaint little resort gives us everything we need, time to relax, with no one getting you to join in! great staff who cannot help you enough, you just have to ask.
Cotton, Jahilda and Bernadette could never do enough, and Clifton at the restraunt even offered to arrange additional food to be cooked due to my allergy to peppers, he had noticed i seemed to be eating a lot of pasta!

The rooms may not be spangly, but are aways clean, if you are spending all day in your room, you need to get out more!

The bar may not have someone waiting on you, but if you cannot wait 5 mins for a drink, you have missed the point of this place, relax , chill, leave rushing at home.
They will make any drink you want, if they do not have the recipe there is always someone who can Google it for you and the staff will step up to make it.
I can recommend a frozen Brandy Alexander, very heathly measures, thanks Brent:-)

The food of an eveing is fab, tasty, if you are used to piling your plate with all you can eat buffet, this is not the place for you, but your waistline will thank you, as will your tatse buds
Breakfast is simple but plenty and if you ask for something such as fried eggs or ommlett it will be made for you.

Yes you will need something for the sandflies and midges , i used DEET based repellent and Avon Skin so Soft and had very few.

Note to the Hotel, a Mosquito net over the beds would be a cheap solution to night time bites, and bring back Sam to the kitchen!

The hammocks are great, in fact so good someone bought the one from his balcony whilst we were there to take home (John)

The other thing that makes this place so good is you meet like minded people, from the USA, Canada, Germany, and sitting around the bar of an evening chatting is very cathartic, Thanks Dan, Ed, Chris and Liz, and Bev.

This is not a perfect place, but it is also much better value than most.
If you want fast food, high energy entertainment, loads of activities and a kids club, please go elsewhere and leave the CBC for those of us than want to spend time watching the world go by, talking to others and reading.

So will we be back........ Yes for another 3 wks next yr, work allowing, and if the CBC promise a new CD of Christmas music, there is only so much Dolly Parton and Alvin and the Chipmunks you can take for 10 days:-)

Room Tip: we like ground floor as you can walk straight out to the beech and if you forget something it is a quick trip back to your room

My husband and I stayed at the CBC for a week this past December. We loved the low-key style of this small resort. We had a big double room on the first floor, which opened up to a patio and the beach. The beach itself is small and well-kept (they comb it every morning), and at times has some good waves. (If you prefer something more typically Caribbean, just take the 15 min walk to the cove next door, which is calm and quite deserted.) We enjoyed the nature walk and the opportunity to socialize at the open bar. We agree with Jessica that this is a great place to catch up with your reading list. Bug spray is a must for the evening. The food was surprisingly good (given the reviews we'd read before). I am a vegetarian and always found something I could eat. We rented a car and explored the island quite a bit, and found that the bigger, fancier resorts entirely lacked the friendly atmosphere of the CBC. We definitely recommend it!

My husband and I visited over the Christmas holiday. Overall, we had a very relaxing time with no major complaints. Having visited Sandals and Secrets resorts before, it did take a day to get used to the resort's style- low key, not fancy, no tv in the room, no snacking between scheduled meals (except drinks). We came up with some pros and cons for travelers and the resort to note:

PROS: beautiful location, private beach, helpful staff, food variety, tasty food, unlimited drinks, hammock on every patio, very quiet, ultra-relaxing spa literally on the beach

CONS/THINGS TO NOTE:
-Bar Service/Selection
Due to small size, there seem to be a few staff members who share responsibilities between the bar and the restaurant. There was not always someone staffing the bar. Also, as a result of not having a specified/trained bartender, they could not make drinks that were not listed on the drink menu (there were about 7 listed). For example, when I asked for a strawberry margarita or daiquiri, I was told the only frozen drink they knew how to make was the pina colada. They did serve one type of beer, which tasted good.

-No food or snacks available between set meal times. They do serve afternoon tea with light sandwiches. Since we arrived right after lunch ended, we were quite hungry come dinner time. No snacks or munchies at the bar, either.

-Not all-you-can-eat at dinner. You choose an appetizer, soup, entree and dessert each night. However, if you care for more of one and less of another, they won't accommodate. For example, my husband wanted another piece of cheesecake the one night they had it, and he was told he couldn't have more than one piece. Also important to note is that the portion sizes are smaller than what we are used to in the US.

-Be sure to bring bug spray. We used it everyday, and ended up with a few bug bites, but nothing of concern, and it did not detract from our vacation.

-If you want to book any kind of excursion, be sure to research before you go. The front desk does not have knowledge of specific trips, and they do not advertise or 'push' anything on you. There is a small room with tour brochures you can look through. The front desk will call the company and book it for you, though, once you've decided. WE HIGHLY SUGGEST LOOKING FOR A TOUR VENDOR NAMED FRENCHIE ALEXANDER. WE WAS AROUND THE RESORT/BEACH ALMOST EVERY DAY, AND HE IS ABLE TO EXPLAIN VARIOUS TOURS TO YOU, AS WELL AS BOOK THEM FOR YOU. Although we were timid to book with a beach vendor, he showed us his award from the Antiguan Tourism Department- he won Tour Vendor of the Year in 2001, and played for the Antiguan National Football Team!! He's quite fun to talk to. Everyone on the resort booked through him, and no one was disappointed. We suggest taking a sailboat cruise around the island. There are many to choose from.

Bring a couple of books, or an E-Reader!! You will have lots of time to lay around the beach or on the hammock reading. Or, you can sit at the bar and chat with the other guests. There aren't that many rooms, so you see the same people regularly and get to chat.

Overall, we had a fantastic time and wouldn't change a thing. We came back relaxed and happy. We suggest Coconut Beach Club!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms allow direct access to the beach from your patio. All patios/balconies have a hammock.

The place is a rather small all inclusive resort. We are not big eater and drinker at all, but this free cocktails and meals have not disturbed us at all. Quite the opposite. The personal is locally recruited, well educated nice mates. There was a personal type of contact between the guests and the personal, not a distance keeping type of service. The opposite of the one we have seen in some parts of San Maarten.
The environment is just nice, good beach, clean pool, tennis court. That is easy to find excursions. We have visited the Frigate Bird Sanctuary in Barbuda, the Sting ray City. There were a guided botanic walk in the surrounding forest, lead by a local rasta fashioned medicine man. Made some dive trips but we had to arrange them in advance. We could not found any place for snorkeling, but the dives were excellent. I should recommend to take a ride on the island just for seeing how the people are living and getting chance to change some words with the nice local people.
I would not hesitate to visit this place ones more…

Room Tip: Every rooms have a beach front balcony, I think all of them are the same.
