We stayed in a standard room (#211) at the Coconut Cove All Suite Hotel for two nights and found the whole place to be great value, providing more than we expected and just about close enough to everything one could want from a beachside holiday in Tampa.
The room was very spacious, with a large open plan living area connected to a large well equipped kitchen. The bedroom was also big with a nice sized comfortable bed and a grand HD television nice and close by to give one that chine a feel. The room also had a nice balcony; sadly with a view of the parking lot - but it is a standard room, mind.
The bathroom is also big - with a small room attached to it housing a safe, an ironing board, an iron and a plunger (!) in case one ever needs to make emergency plumbing repairs. The toiletries are great - lavender and rosemary scented. They even provide beach towels in addition to the abundant towels they offer. Nice touch.
The venue was located a little bit away from the main section of the stretch; so it seemed a little out of the way, but not to its detriment. There are a few local rowdy bars and a Subway and a Walgreens flank it on either side. There is also two nearby restaurants which offer a 10% discount to hotel residents. There is a nice deep pool in the hotel with deck chairs and music playing all day giving it a nice holiday feel. There is access to a small private beach very close by - yet if one prefers the main beach is less than a 10 minute walk away.
The pier is a little further on, but the walk is lovely.
Parking was ample, but comes at an additional $10 per day charge which seems a bit of a robbery.
The positive aspects include two very helpful receptionists Tina and Mia. Tina particularly was so helpful that we extended our stay an extra night after she explained what one should do around the area.
The pool was great - so nice to find a pool which is deep enough for adults to not be able to touch the bottom when standing.
Our housekeeper was also very kind and polite.
The negative aspects include noise; a lot of noise. If one likes to sleep with ones window or balcony door open; there are air-conditioner extractor fans to contend with; music and noise from the pool area; loud cars and motorbikes and late night shouting and even a street scuffle to contend with.
The distance factor is one to consider in that it is a bit away from all the action of the pier and the main beach.
And one possible unfair criticism but worth noting is the kitchen knife they provided could not slice warm butter it was so blunt.
To conclude the Coconut Cove is a simple, great and good place to stay for one or two nights, and an even better way to spend a week to ten days. Just bring some ear plugs and your own knife.
