Cocobay Resort in Saint Mary's, Antigua and Barbuda

There is no dividing line between the paradise inside the cottages of Cocobay Resort and the paradise outside – fling open the patio door and let a breeze flow from the aquamarine Caribbean waters over the rustic wood floors and through the crisp white linens of your sleeping quarters. Adirondack chairs anchor a permanent sunbathing spot on the terrace of this waterfront all-inclusive that is equally secluded and connected to life in town.

Slip your toes into floury white sand and let the sun melt away any tension in your shoulders. Float in crystalline waters. Return to dry land for a guided nature walk through the lush hillside with a local medicine man, learning about the healing properties of plants and herbs. Dine on rock shrimp and toast the sunset as waves crash on the rocks below.

We have just returned from 9 very relaxing days in the Cocobay. We are a very low maintenance couple taking the rough with the smooth but we do also recognise good from bad. Our room (27) was very cute and perfectly rustic. It had a very nice view of the sea although we had nothing to compare it to so there could be better (and worse). Very comfy clean bed (good pillows) but i would say that the floor didn't seem very clean on arrival with a few other peoples long hairs found on the floor. Also it was extremely hot on arrival in the room as the aircon was broken so i don't think it was checked before guests arrived with wasnt the best welcome after a hot taxi journey. The aircon was fixed 24 hours later after a temporary room change and all handled by the hotel as well as they could where they ultimately had to replace the whole unit. There was champagne waiting for us in the fridge and the coffee was lovely. The hummingbirds buzzing in the shrubs around the balcony was a big plus but we couldn't sit on the outside chairs without laying a towel over them as they were soiled (from who knows what....). The beach was very lovely indeed but not quite as picturesque as the photos suggest. They did the best they could with the weed cleaning it up daily. One thing we noted was that towels from the previous days would often be left on the beach overnight and into the next day, often slung onto the thatched roof of the sunshades or abandoned in a crumpled heap which surprised us. The big plus is that you can walk for miles in either direction (with possible a short swim around headlands) to several more beaches. Don't expect much bar service on the beach - there was a chap around but he only asked us if we wanted a drink once.....i think you have to make it very clear if you would like one as he strolled past in Antigua relaxed style but then very little dialogue. On the final day another waiter was working and we got a much better service. Mostly we ended up walking to the bar though. Food in the restaurant was amazing, Great service and wine/bubbles excellent quality. There was little point going to Sheer Rocks in our opinion although we never tried it. The quality of the plastic cups by the beach/pool was poor. The throw away type rather than proper re-usable plastic. Sometimes the pool bar used proper ones but rarely. Bar service was exceptional and plenty on offer. Again limited pool side waiter service and often old disposable cups left in same place all day if people had left them there.....really simply things to manage. The view from the pool was the best we've ever seen and more than made up for it. The pool whilst tired was great and the foam floats were a really great touch. Beds a little worn. Ultimately the views were incredible and we think the hotel might just rely on this a little bit too much and let the service/cleanliness drop here and there. We didn't see much re-investment in the hotel and things were definitely getting a little tired although plenty of staff around and the gardeners were dong a great job. All said and done we would definitely return due to the food, the staff and the location but it could be time for Cocobay to have a little refresh and review some of the finer beach/pool/room details.

Cocobay lived up to the hype. The staff was warm, friendly, and accommodating, and knew us by our first names. The cottages are romantic, pristine, and the views are absolutely INSANE. We were surprised how many hotel pool options there were. Buffet breakfast and lunch were OK -- a la carte dinners were good. Overall beautiful resort.

Top hotel and exactly what we wanted for our honeymoon, relaxed place to unwind with anything we needed to hand. The hotel has proper character of a Caribbean hotel rather than a modern day resort just dumped on the beach. The food was excellent and staff friendly. Rooms basic but sweet and clean with brilliant views. Well worth a visit. On the negative side which is picky, having Sheer Rock guests walking right through the hotel to access the restaurant isn’t ideal especially when children are with them and some visitors sneaked in the hotel pool. That needs resolving by escorting people to and from the restaurant as a minimum. Also the hotel room mini bars should be stocked for all guests daily as it’s crazy having to pop to the bar to get drinks if you want to spend some time in your room using the plunge pool. In general though 9/10 i’d say and we were very happy - thanks! We would return

Our third time here, the previous being in 2015 and 2017. Following the success of my wife’s (Joanna Forest) classical number 1 album, we wanted to go somewhere as a pure escape and so coming back here again was the perfect holiday. You can be as private as you like or as sociable with many places to chat to fellow travellers and many places to simply lounge by yourselves. There is no better place to start than in the comfort of your room. For the last two years we have stayed in a deluxe waterfront suite. The draw of this being a warm plunge pool, the best view in the Caribbean, peace, sun and shade. The bed is comfy, the outside loungers perfect for reading and a top view point to not only look at the gorgeous island but also observe the local wildlife such as hummingbirds, geckos and mongooses (mongeese?!). The food is fabulous. We are always both first in the queue for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and down for a 6.30pm dinner. Perhaps that’s because I’m turning into such a fatso in my middle aged years but more likely it’s because I just love the food itself. All of the staff here are so friendly and this year we were welcomed back with hugs and smiles. I know we’ll back for trip 4 but right now we’re still basking in trip 3 and it’s ace. Thanks Cocobay, you have given us some incredible memories.

From the moment we got out of the taxi, a staff member was there to greet us and help us get settled. We were very early as we had to be off our cruise boat my nine. They expedited getting us into our room and settled in. The AC in our room died, so the manager upgraded us to the fabulous room you see in the pictures. The resort grounds are beautiful and full of wonderful tropical birds. Food and drinks are yummy and plentiful. Our only regret is that we were there for only two nights.
