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.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 4 days ago

This is a tough review. Cocobay was just ok and this is why. They hit on many marks. For example: We told them we were newly weds and they gave us a 1 night room upgrade and welcome gift. Later, they also gave a surprise departure gift of rum punch and in room dessert the night before we left. Most of the staff that attended to us were really gracious when we were served and we appreciated the service very much. The resort caters to an older, silver haired UK crowd. No problem with that but, just know there are a lot of regulars. I do think the food suffers as the lovely brits are known for a bland palate. All meals are in the same location. The dinner on the full package is excellent. I had spiny lobster every night. The breakfast was mediocre at best and also the lunch was just ok. The highlight of the breakfast was the wonderful woman cooking eggs to order and omelettes (we didn’t remember her name but she was great!) . I am used to having fresh juice when visiting the carribean but all the juices were from concentrate. I also like a coconut at times and I did not see one available or offered. The service at the sole eating area was middling in the morning slightly better at lunch and acceptable at dinner. On two out of the four days we were at the resort there was no lunch special. I didn’t quite understand how that worked. The rooms: Deluxe cottage and plunge pool cottage. I think the plunge pool cottage is 300 bucks plus more. Its the same room with a pool. Because of the foliage and the shade and the time of year (Nov) the pool in the room was really too cool to enjoy. Yes, the rooms are kind of rustic, and an upscale camp-like or safari experience but, they are nice and separated. You do not share a wall with another room. For city dwellers it’s a great departure. The views from the balcony are spectacular. This is a beachfront property. The beach was nice. Sand was a bit gravely and because of the storm the locals suggested that the shell build up and the sand shelf were a result of the recent storm. So, while you can’t fight mother nature you can fight poor beach service. If you look at my reviews I have stayed at a number of 5 stars and they all had some beach service. Cocobay had none. No one to help you set up your chair and no drink service. It was not a long walk to the bar but still, it was fine and we worked it out. It’s not 5 star level service. As a positive, the grounds were exceptionally manicured. And while the resort really exists as a part of the horticulture of the island, that comes with some drawbacks. Mosquitoes were vicious. I know it’s a first world problem —but nearly two weeks later, my wife and I are still healing from the bites. A mosquito net is provided but it didn’t do us enough justice. Not only that, there were bugs biting us in the bed at night. (These were probably not bed bugs - we checked for signs.) No amount of bug spray could give us relief. Finally the night before our departure they called us as a courtesy to schedule our departure. We told them we would need assistance at 11 to leave. No one came and we walked our bags ourselves. Last note of warning: This resort requires excellent mobility. Do not go if you cant traverse steep steps. Go to cocobay and go to antigua but dont expect 5 star service (it’s a solid 4 to 3.5 experience), or food, nor a the best beach you’ve ever experienced. Go there because you want to escape and find quiet isolated relaxation.

My husband and I recently has our honeymoon at Cocobay and it was the best decision we could have made. I think the stand out positive for us were the staff, they were incredibly friendly, and couldn't do more to help us. They made us feel welcome and part of their family. The hotel itself is brilliant, our room was lovely, the different pool areas are great. The food was brilliant, we booked through the hotel directly, so did not have to pay for the supplements at dinner. There was a variety of choice every night and it was all delicious. There was also a large choice at Breakfast and Lunch and we were never hungry. Cocobay was exactly what we needed at the end of 2017, and we felt incredibly relaxed by the end of the holiday. We can't wait to book our next trip.

My wife and two adult daughters were headed to St. Martin for a New Year's vacation, and then the hurricane altered our plans. We needed to quickly make alternate plans, so after some brief research, we settled on the Cocobay Resort on an island we had never visited. But let me tell you that this place is fabulous and well worth the price. Let's start with Oneal, the general manager. His disposition sets the tone for all of the staff. Oneal is gracious, confident, generous, and so very accommodating. We loved that guy. The grounds are fabulous as are the cottages. We were in one of about four that have two bedrooms. We understand Caribbean resorts. We are not looking for the Four Seasons. We understand simplicity and comfort, and Cocobay met our expectations. There are two infinity pools plus a very nice beach adjacent to the property. We skipped around and managed to enjoy all. The views of the sea are spectacular. This all inclusive property serves three meals a day,and all meals were very good. We also enjoyed good wine and drinks while there. The wine upgrades are reasonably priced but were not really necessary as the house wines are good although not great. We have never encountered a staff of folks who are as nice and gracious as we found at Cocobay. We love this place and will be back.

Stayed for xmas 2017. Beautiful stunning location with gorgeous gardens immaculately kept. Deluxe cottage was lovely with a seaview, housekeeping excellent. Food is excellent particularly dinner very high standard of food - delicious. Made good use of the all inclusive cocktails from morning noon to night! The beach was quiet and clean. All staff very professional & friendly, nothing too much trouble. Two comments - lighting is very dim in the cottage at night near the wardrobe area so some form of strip lighting could help. Also, umbrellas in the room would be a good idea - we had a few showers mainly during the night but had to stay in the bar for ages haha before we could venture back to our rooms on a couple of occasions. Talking to people on beach who have visited many other resorts in Antigua and who had come back to Cocobay, I can see why. Very peaceful, lovely relaxed vibe. A wonderful amazing holiday and will be back! Thank you Cocobay Manager & staff

This hotel is so well managed - firstly do book directly with the hotel as this gives you perks such as a choice of the entire menu, a mini bar and 5% off your next holiday there. They cut out all unnecessary frills in order that you can have a whole lobster or great steak every night, good thinking! The staff are amazing and most have worked there for 17 years so a real team spirit prevails. The beds are very comfortable, great air con, very nice food with a well designed restaurant giving multiple views. The massages were excellent, well worth it. Only downside is the beach has a bad view to the back which needs screening off and being easily accessible means we were joined by cruise ship passengers and staff with their kids trying to use the hotel beds and shades - being an adult only hotel you do need to be aware of this but we stayed over xmas and this wouldn't be such an issue at less busy times of the year. Also the beach manager was very efficient at moving people on if they crowded the guests. Otherwise only the locals join in with their families which is a joy to see. we would definitely go again, thanks for a great xmas!
