OverviewThis romantic boutique resort features 26 individual wooden Caribbean style cottages, each offering a private balcony with spectacular views and showers opening to the Caribbean sea.
We booked cocos for our wedding and honeymoon and must say it was perfect! We had the sunset pool cottage and the view was fantastic.The pool was out of use for a few days but the managers did sort this problem.From the moment we arrived we felt the Antiguan welcome.Tameka was fabulous in helping us arrange our perfect day.Everything went the way we wanted it to be.The staff are so welcoming and funny Akil sure made our stay memorable.Food was was excellent.For snorkelling I do recommend taking a ride out to another few beaches such as long bay beach as the water isn't clear enough to snorkel around cocos.Could extent this review forever but to some Antigua and cocos up one word...paradise!
Individual cottages with a boho chic flare included an outdoor shower, hammocks, air conditioning, 4 poster bed with netting and a mini fridge. The view of the ocean and hills was one of the best we've experienced, a beautiful island.
We were met on a Sunday afternoon by a caring and loving staff. Got us checked in and had a tasty rum punch in our hands in 20 minutes. We met our favourite couple there and had a truly relaxing and wonderful experience. This is a cute rustic resort with a very tight knit staff...they will accommodate your needs to the best of their ability. Our friend planned for a special birthday celebration and they did a wonderful job. I had one day I was wanting some 'soul food' and they made me some cheese fries with bacon bits...made me happy! The beach is tucked away and quiet and the water is just a dazzling and breathtaking turquoise!The only complaint I have was the mattress on my bed. It was clearly a bit older and 'lumpy' and I had a hard time getting comfortable. I'm not a big complainer but in hindsight, I should have said something...I have no doubt they would have resolved the situation very professionally. Still an "excellent" review despite that.
We have just recently returned from 10 days at the lovely Cocos Hotel. We will definitely be returning to this little gem. There were lots of repeat guests and one couple who had been there every year for the last 17 years! What better recommendation than that.This is a rustic hotel, a fabulous little hideaway. The outdoor showers are fantastic. We had cottage number 20 and yes the hill is a bit of a puff and the 35 steps up to our room but the view was worth it and let's face it we all eat and drink too much on holiday so the exercise is good for you, you have all the time in the world to wander up at your own pace after all.The staff are very friendly and helpful and cannot do enough for you. Nothing is too much trouble at reception and the staff in the restaurant are all lovely. At some All inclusive resorts you are made to feel that if you don't tip constantly you won't get served drinks that you have paid for, but there was none of this. It was a lovely relaxed atmosphere and when we asked at reception what the restaurant tipping policy was we were told that they could give us an envelope and we could return it with names of staff who were to receive it, this seems a very good discreet system to use. The beach bar has it just right, quiet music in the background and Akil who obviously loves his job and people and walks around the sunbeds offering drinks throughout the day, no drink is too much trouble for him.The food was plentiful and of good quality and very tasty. The breakfast and lunch menus were the same each day with a large choice and options to order side dishes and have as much or as little as you wanted. Lunch was our favourite meal as there were always specials on the board as well and in 10 days I never did get to try everything on the menu as there was such a good selection. The evening meal menu always had a choice of things so you could always find something you liked. In addition to this the beach bar served food between 4 and 5, with coffee, tea and cakes with china crockery which they carried down to the beach each afternoon and some savoury snacks or burgers, sausages or kebabs from the barbecue. As food is plentiful we didn't really need an afternoon snack but the kebabs and burgers were lovely.The beach and sea were lovely and clean with comfy beds, umbrella and a side table for your drinks. The only thing that can sometimes be an issue is that there aren't the same number of beds as guests so if it is a day when all guests are in resort people who go to the beach later may struggle to get sunbeds.There are some lovely cats in the resort who charm the guests into giving them titbits which keeps most guests entertained.The seating on the balcony is really comfortable. The provision of mosquito nets and mossie spray in the rooms is a thoughtful touch showing the hotel want to make your stay as comfortable as possible.Entertainment is laid back and enjoyably in the background whilst you are eating. The bar area has sofas for relaxing and chatting to people, but after an exhausting day of eating, drinking and sunbathing rowdy drinking evenings were not what this resort was about.If you are looking for a laid back holiday with good food and drink then this is the destination for you.The reception booked us a half day taxi trip round the island and this was a great way to see the island.The only negative thing I can say about the resort is the swimming pool, which is looking a bit neglected. I guess as the beach is so good it isn't really used but as it is the first impression you get of the resort as it is near the entrance I do think it needs a little attention.There is a second beach you can access which has a few sunbeds but no beach bar and this can be a quiet area unless there are cruise ships docked in port when this then becomes busy and noisy with much increased water sports around the bay.Most days we took a stroll along the beach, about 20 minutes walk, to the harbour where there is a supermarket and some shops.
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.
