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.
The people there were very nice and informative.. make sure you use the stair or exercise room a month in advance for you will be climbing hills to get to your room. whew.. the view we had was the sunset and it was lovely and showering outside was an interesting experience. for was good at the hotel too. be prepared there or cats near by to beg for food..they are cute. They had little touches to welcome you and when it is your last day there. We did the catamran and other tourish thing is was nice I would go back.
This was our first time to Antigua. We have been all over the Caribbean but never here. So thankful that we decided to take a shot on this great place in the eastern Caribbean.First, the island is very nice. Great weather, beautiful scenery, amazingly beautiful water. The best thing however on this island, the people. Very nice. Everywhere we went we had a great experience with the local people. Next was the hotel. Cocos hotel is very beautiful. It has a little age to it, is quaint in its own way, needs a little repair in some places if you look a little, and has its "island" quirks that make for a memorable vacation. That being said, i would not hesitate to go back to visit. By the end of the trip we felt like we had made a bunch of new friends (both the staff as well as the other visitors from all over the world). When we left there were no less than 10 people on the staff that we received a genuine goodbye hug from. We are truly missing these people that took such amazing care of us for the week. Cant say enough about them.Not one disappointing encounter the entire week from 12/27/16 to 1/3/17. All the staff that worked this week were great! Too many names to mention but Sareen, Akil, Allen, Lynette, Christine and Jennifer, "J" at the bar and Kerry Anne (amazingly sweet girl) all made the week a treasure. There were others but their names escape me as they did not all have name tags. Again, not a bad encounter the whole week. Great staff.Next, the hotel. Great as long as you do not expect the four seasons. Don't get me wrong, this place is nice. It is very much an "island" kind of place. Private, quiet and very relaxing. The only negative comment that i could find would be that it could use a little TLC in some places. The hotel sits on a cliff on, and i mean ON the water. I am sure it is really hard to keep the place up and could take an army to do so. That being said, the place looks great, there are just a few places that could use a little updating. The beds were comfortable, food was really good, drinks were great, the beach is beautiful. The pool needs work, but nobody was ever there. The beach is way to nice to sit at the pool though. I am sure thats why.One of the showers (two on the porch) did not work, one of the sinks would tend to clog up, and there is not a comfortable chair to sit in in the room we had. That is the most critical i can be with to room. It was really nice and the view was unbelievable. Sunsets were PERFECT from the porch. The waves crashing on the rocks below our room was great at night. No TV was a welcome part of the stay. The internet worked at the hotel part, but not in our room. That was a bit of a bummer but the cell service worked fine. Didn't really need it. It worked for others but not us. We were the second furthest unit away from the restaurant and it just did not get to us.In all fairness, we never complained about anything but i think if we had, they would have tried very hard to fix it. The issues were just not that big of a deal for us. Didn't really want to deal with it.All in all, we would highly recommend the place. Will for sure consider going back for a visit. We never stay in the same place twice... BUT Cocos is likely one of the place we may have to go back for a visit.Heck, we feel like we will need to go back just to catch up with our old friends.Great job Cocos. Thank you for a terrific week.
Thank you Shawn and the whole team for making this 2nd visit as wonderful as the first.As many reviews mention, this is a rustic hotel with charm in abundance.Small and low key, not the place for lively night life but for those wanting peace and relaxation with stunnning views, look no further. Live musical entertainment discretely supplied a number of times a week during dinner. The food was served to table and was very good.Some early evening noise occasionally noticed from Jolly Beach but not often and not enough to disturb us.Rooms kept very clean, beach also tended and raked, sunlougers brushed early every morning.Soft flat white sand beach with gentle slope into calm water.Ideal for swimming but not always clear enough for snorkelling.Mosquitoes and sand flies are found in all hot countries but the hotel thoughtfully supply anti mozzie spay for body and one for the room, which seem effective.The staff were wonderful. Everyone knew your name and soon knew your likes. They are friendly and attentive. We felt very at home.Dress code is relaxed, but cover ups over swimwear is requested in the restaurant during the day. Eveningwear was smart casual and left to holidaymakers discretion.Steep walks and steps to rooms is a problem for anyone with disability but there are a few lower rooms near to the pool with only a few steps. There are also a few steps down to the beach.We are already planning a return trip in 2017. This is one of the nicest holidays we have had anywhere.
Cocos if a great location with fantastic views from rooms and restaurant . You are between two great beaches with access to both . We enjoyed our stay but for the benefit of future visitors it is worth noting : 1. The location / cottages The best cottages ( in fact most cottages ) do need a climb uphill which you have to do at least 3 times a day !! so if you dont like hill climbs its not the place for you. the cottages are basic with great outdoor shower. Comfy beds. Lots of mosquitos so use the spray you will be bitten. 2. Beaches . Both stunning beaches not overcrowded and good for swimming.We preferred the quieter beach on the left but be aware they have lack of cushions on the beds so only 6 are useable despite asking for more and the beds on the main beach get full very quickly and are close together. Be aware on days the cruise ships arrive then several hundred people arrive on the beach changing the atmosphere and privacy.3. The food is average but good choice and changing menu that included local food. Each meal is served at table no buffet . Having stayed at Cocobay in the same trip i think the food choice is better here at cocos4.The staff are very friendly, caribbean hospitality and service There are some seating / bar areas but when it rains as it did during our stay the cushions get very wet and are not changed so you can't use them. Overall we had a good stay but not great value for money.
Firstly, we would like to thank Shawn and her team for another fantastic holiday. It was our second visit and we were welcomed back as though we were members of the family...We had a Sunset View room and enjoyed sitting on our balcony with a drink (champagne and beers) watching the pelicans diving for their dinners in the evenings.Do not be put off by the tales of extremely steep hills to climb to get to your cottage, unless of course you have mobility problems, they have a couple of benches to break your journey (it's really not that bad).We love the outdoor showers, overlooked only by a lonely lizard or a hummingbird.The food was very good, we especially liked the lunches (curry roti, chilli wrap and jerk chicken). The Fish of the Day is always fresh and tasty.Don't be put off by the beach vendors, they are harmless and friendly. We recommend a snorkelling trip to Cades Reef and a visit to Nelson's Harbour (we took a Taxi - US$80 return). Relaxing at the bar in the evenings is a must as is the Thursday Night beach party.remember to apply insect repellent, especially at night.We will certainly return.
