We wanted something low-key for this 7-day unwind. Something nice, relaxing, beautiful views and beach. This was perfect.First of all, arriving to airport (new and better than many in us) was pleasant. 20 min drive though country and small neighborhoods brought us to this cute, warm and welcoming resort - COCOS. very calm, relaxed environment. Unbelievable view overlooking the beach with the softest blue waters.Checking into cabin 7 we had an unbelievable view straight west (very warm for a few afternoon hours when you should be at beach) allowing us to watch each sunset between peaks in tiny little Redonda Island, about 30 miles away, each day. Air conditioning was nice, had visiting kitties that were considerate which we enjoyed.LOCATION: Can walk safely into Jolly Harbor, about 10-15 min. Grocery store, and restaurants. (And boats) About 20 minutes to St. John's (go, see their biggest city. Great restaurants and stores! We really enjoyed it!) 40 min to Shirley Heights Party. Great Steel band. 17+ man strong.BEACH: great. Amazing angle at the harbor, best sand here. NOT built up with huge hotels, so keep it that way Antigua! PROPERTY: Amazing, hugs cliff. A lot returning couples from Europe and all over, where I found many wonderful conversations. A steady incline heading up to cabins. Good strut, or could be troublesome for uncertain legs. No tvs, which we actually really enjoyed. Very lush, well kemp landscape. Outdoor showers awesome.FOOD: Food was great and amazing soups and and all entrees, du jours, including a surprising (and welcome) selection for my vegetarian wife. She was happy. Thing I'd recommend to COCOS would be a few descent little snacks around noon-time. Snacks started on beach as sun ducked behind property around 4-5 which seemed close to dinner to indulge. Just one or two things.SERVICE: This is why I give it a 4/5 stars... the only reason... Front desk, housekeeping were great! Restaurant service was very good overall, had a couple great gals. Beach service was way more aloof than it could've been. THIS is where the allinclusive showed up. Bartenders could've make some great tip $. Don't expect it, gotta get out in front of it. I seriously had cash in my hand several times and they rolled past without checking in. OVERALL: Will go back and would recommend to anyone wanting to relax in a quiet, respectable yet fun and carefree environment. Locals atmosphere was good vibe, safe and a pleasure conversing with. Other guests at this small resort were very pleasant. Given demographic contained fewer younger couples (a few) on up. Great visit, keep it up and check it out! Great variety.
Coco's was everything it said it was, from a warm and friendly staff to excellent cottage accommodation, coupled with great food and drink and an excellent beachfront, attended by jovial bar staff. All in all a wonderful holiday and we will return to Coco's again.
Totally outdoor refreshing experience!, With the exception of air conditioning in our room at night we were outside the entire time amidst the gardens and beaches or on our deck. A few bug bites, some cats around the restaurant. Flowers and tropical views everywhere!Amazing local fish and vegetables everyday - we are very picky eaters and loved the food. Large breakfast and lunch menus, small dinner menu. Fresh local breads, daily smoothies and juices and fruits. All meals hot off the stove and carefully crafted. We went for the specials almost every meal. Nothing too spicy on the menu. Staff was so incredible they made the stay exceptional with laughter and smiles and hugs. The beaches! The BEST beaches, and two of them! One with a beach bar, the other more secluded. Hot days and warm water, a single tropical shower each day. Most of the clientelle was older eurpoean couples, a few younger american couples. But not a place to party - VERY QUIET. No drunks, no obnoxious cover bands, no kids. A true retreat. We met couples who had been there 8 years and 18 years! GO FOR A PLUNGE POOL COTTAGE. You won't regret it!
What a wonderful experience staying at Cocos proved.We chose this hotel because it was small [ only 30 rooms ] and boasted stunning views.We weren't disappointed.The rooms are rustic and some you do need to be a mountain goat to get to!The climb is tough but you know that once there the views will reward your effort.There is plenty of room, a well stocked minibar replenished daily and good facilities all round.It's not 5 star and there are a few minor niggles but overall you'll be very comfortable.The food is good without being exceptional and sometimes you feel that lunch is the real meal of the day and that dinner is less of an event.Allow me to explain.The lunch menu is good and there are always daily specials.You could quite easily eat something different every lunch time and not exhaust the menu [ we were there for 17 nights ].However dinner was invariably 2 starters, 2 mains and a pasta dish. No specials.What makes Cocos special is the warmth of the staff and the feeling you are genuinely welcome.We had a fun time with all the staff and it's difficult to pick out individuals but Akil, Antonio, Sheree, Chrissie, Ani and and and ....... made it a very special stay.A special thank you to Shawn the hotel manager who looked after us extremely well.Nothing was too much trouble and any issues were dealt with promptly and to our satisfaction.Like all things Caribbean, nothing is perfect but for me CoCos is perfect for a restful and peaceful Caribbean getaway.
We chose this hotel because of it small number of rooms and location.We stayed in Room 1 which had amazing views from the balcony - its vertically up from the restaurant however this did not bother us. The room was spacious with outdoor shower, minibar which was topped up daily.There are 2 beaches which can be accessed the main beach where the beach bar is located or a smaller beach accessed around the back of the hotel from room 1 about 5 minute walk tops. The advantage to the 2nd beach is fewer people made the effort to go there, we had no hassle from beach vendors there and the sunset from that side of the hotel were amazing. It's well worth going too no bar just take drinks with you.If you need a taxi from the hotel ask for Dawson he was amazing on a trip into St John's he deviated to show us the view from the highest point at the hospital looking over St John's at no extra charge. We also did a island tour with him well recommended.The failing of this hotel was it's evening meals considering the nightly rate the food was variable at best, our first two nights the evening meal can only be described as sub standard at best. We then had several good meals only for the standard to drop again one night it was a barbecue where the "chef" looked completely disinterested we waited 45minutes between starter and main to be served scrawny pieces of badly cooked chicken, so for the first time we went for desert my husband asked for cheese & biscuits he was offered processed cheese that would top a burger, I opted for mousse a bad mistake. This is a lovely hotel but it needs to improve it's evening meals.
