My husband and I have just returned from the Hotel Colonial Cayo Coco where we have just completed a 10 day stay.
We arrived with our friends on 23 April and we very optimistic as we usually are going to a place that we haven't been to before.
For the most part everything was good, not fantastic but good!
Our room which was in the main building above the lobby was fine for the most part, there were a few burned out light bulbs, the patio door didn't open very well but the balcony wasn't big enough to sit out on so that didn't matter. Our bathroom was sufficient for the two of us and although we didn't run out of water like our friends did there wasn't much water pressure at times. There wasn't an iron, ironing board or coffee maker to be seen so take clothes that don't need ironing and make a trip to the bar in the lobby for an espresso!
A lot of people were there without wrist bands on leading us to believe that family members of the staff were taking advantage of the low season.
The food was reasonable, there was a little variety but the same little variety of food every day - morning, noon and evening. We didn't go hungry and even with a dairy allergy I found things I could eat.
Because of traveling there later in the season we never had a problem finding a place to sit either at the beach or by one of the pools.
The entertainment was similar to the food - the same thing every night not much variety.
This property has so much potential and it would be nice to see it brought back to the way it likely was 15 - 20 years ago.
The Colonial needs substantial upgrading, repairs and a good cleaning all over.
