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 decided on this hotel after looking at a few others in the area are we're so happy to say it delivered exactly what we hoped for, which was a quiet get-away in the Caribbean. The cottage we had had doors that opened up to a balcony with an unhindered view of the sea beyond. It was also west facing so we had beautiful sunsets to watch each evening. After the sunset we could use the outdoor showers at our cottage and got a real feel of ocean living....those are a very nice touch. The food was exquisite and we we're very happy to find that all meals are served and the menu was always amazing - especially the cod fish cakes or the mahi-mahi.This was much preferred to the buffet style used by most all inclusive resorts. The beaches were beautiful and the waters surrounding the hotel clear turquoise and full of marine life so we were glad we took our snorkels. A special mention must go to the staff though - in particular Jennifer at the front desk and Stephen at the beach bar- who were very friendly throughout our stay and made us feel very welcome. If friendliness, serenity and relaxation is what you crave then look no further than this hotel. We very much look forward to returning.
Me and my husband have just spent the most perfect 12 nights at Cocos hotel. Complete relaxation from the moment you arrive. The whole vibe of cocos is beautiful and we where blown away with the whole holiday. The setting and grounds are so well kept and maintained and our cottage was wow with breath taking views but most of all it's like staying with a family all the staff work so hard they are kind friendly and a smile and a chat is never too much trouble. We would like to say from the bottom of our hearts a big thank you to you all for making our holiday so very special.
We were so lucky to have spent our honeymoon in this beautiful location. The staff are super friendly and helpful they really made our stay even better by the care and attention to detail. The food was delicious with different daily specials for every meal. The views are breathtaking, it is such a peaceful hotel and after a hectic couple of weeks beforehand was much appreciated. My husband with help of the lovely staff at Cocos organised a beautiful surprise dinner on the beach for me which was perfect. The hotel have a kayak which you can borrow at any time to tour the area, but if you fancy something faster you can hire a jet ski with a local beach vendor 50 dollars for half an hour. The cottages are truly lovely, they are rustic style with the most stunning views from the outdoor showers and balcony's. Hotel provides all the essentials, cold drinks selection in your fridge on daily basis along with snacks and bug/bite spray. Most relaxing holiday we have ever had thanks to the beautiful location and all the lovely staff at Cocos.Thank you so muchDee & Steve (no 26) xx
My husband and I stayed at Cocos for our honeymoon in early June. I honestly could not have asked for a better place to spend a week relaxing and away from the business of life. The food was incredible. They only have one menu for breakfast and one for lunch, but there is enough variety that you can eat something different every day. They also offer a special or two for every meal. Dinner menu is never the same, there are usually 3 different entrees. We were blown away with how unique and amazing the food was. Our room was the full sunset view, and it was worth it! The view was gorgeous! Crystal blue waters and stunning sunsets. The room is simple, no TV and wifi was pretty spotty. But you can't beat the outdoor shower! I've never showered so much in my entire life. The staff was amazing. My husband and I really connected with a view and had great conversations. They worked on remembering us, our favorite food and drinks and details about our lives. They were always friendly and willing to serve in whatever way they could. The beach was nice, decently private although vendors would come and ask you to do their excursions. It got annoying when you were napping and they woke you up or pressured you. But it was nice to have options to experience the island more. These excursions were expensive and we did not bring enough money to do very much sadly. The only down sides were the sand bugs were awful and hurt when they bit. We came in the hurricane season and it was terribly humid. We had a hard time laying out at the beach for very long. The hike to the room could be exhausting but we also got a workout after the amazing food! Besides those downsides, everything was a dream and we want to return! We loved Cocos!!
If you are looking for a rustic stay with beautiful scenery and a friendly staff Cocos is good choice, but is not a luxury resort by any means. Pros:Beautiful views everywhere - you cannot find much better views than Cocos especially on a sunny day in the late morning. The water is beautiful and there are beautiful flowers everywhere. I couldn't stop taking pictures.Staff is very friendly- some of the staff go out of their way to get to know you. Most seemed very caring and wanted to get to know guest. Request were always followed up on. I also believe that the staff knew where most couples were at all time for safety reasons from the past. Private - very laid back and quiet (with exception of construction). Atmosphere is relaxing and romantic. You can always walk to jolly harbor resort if you want to listen to music or party a bit.Rooms- rooms are basic with deck, bedroom and bathroom but I really liked to be separated. AC worked great (I saw new units being delivered for other rooms). Bed and mattress could be better (old springs), but sufficient.Beaches- there are beaches and bars on both sides of the resort with great service. We preferred the valley church beach and often had it all to ourselves. The new rooms are being built here so there is some noise. Cons:Wear and tear of existing buildings: the resort is in serious need of some upgrades to existing public structures. Instead of building new cottages they should really focus on replacing rotted wood at restaurant and lobby area. Chairs are rotted and cushions are stained all along the property. A piece of the deck broke off on my first day and was still there a week later not picked up or fixed. This is the first area new guests see. Make it stand out and look amazing. Construction ongoing at site- every morning at about 8:30 construction started on new buildings and refurbishment of existing buildings. If you are staying by them don't plan on sleeping in as the workers are pretty loud and the sound is amplified off the cliffs. By the pace of the workers this will be ongoing for quite some time.Water: 3 nights we stayed at the resort there was no hot water to shower in the evening. One night we didn't have any water at all in room for a couple hours . Not sure if others had the problem but plan on either showering in morning or taking a shower with no hot water in evening. Litter: it's unfortunate the amount of litter everywhere at such a beautiful place. There is garbage over flowing a dumpsters and all along the construction areas. Not sure who is at fault but overall people appear not to appreciate and take care of the resort. Other comments:Food- food is pretty good but only one place to eat. We went out every other night to try something new. Sheer Rocks is very good.Bugs/Frogs: there are lots of bugs with sand flies being the worst. I put bug spray on ankles in morning and mosquito spray all over at night and had very few issues. I loved the sound of the frogs at night and left room doors open every night, but they are very loud.There are other animals everywhere and we were woken up 3 nights to something scratching the roof of our hut. Still not sure what it was but luckily it never got in. :-) Hills: as others have stated there is quite the hike to some rooms. About 5-6 cabins still have great views and the walk isn't as bad. You may want to suggest if staying.Shirley Heights: if your looking to get out and enjoy a night of eating, drinking and dancing (or watching others dance) check out Shirley heights on Sunday. We were hesitant to go as I figured it would be a tourist trap with nonstop harassment to buy things but really enjoyed and stayed longer.I think the resort is nice for newlyweds in there 20s-early 30s who are looking for privacy to relax and not looking to be pampered or have super high expectations on luxury.
