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.

Reviews for Cocobay Resort
I recently visited Cocobay with my sister-in-law for a quick â€śescape the winter coldâ€ť trip. I couldnâ€™t have imagined a more picturesque location for such a getaway. What we loved: Everyone on staff was super sweet, friendly and helpful. The resort and surrounding beach are gorgeous and very well maintained. The pools and beach are spread out in a way that it never felt like you were there with a ton of people. For sure, there were plenty of guests there at the same time, but it never felt crowded. Tea time every day, with tea, coffee and assorted cookies, sandwiches and cakes. Tiny ice cream cones scooped and served by the pool closest to the beach. Iâ€™m not sure if that happens every afternoon or if we just happened to catch it one day, but if you happen to catch it, itâ€™s the best thing ever. The meals in general were all very good. As a vegetarian, I was happy with all the options we had. What we wish we would have known (but know for next time!): Antigua is one hour ahead of New York City. When we landed, they did not say â€śwelcome to Antigua, where the local time is....â€ť And we didnâ€™t research it, so that was on us. When we arrived at Cocobay, we thought we had arrived early enough to enjoy the 4:00 pm tea time. With the time change, we had just missed it, but made it our mission to not miss it the following days. They will sign you up for a dinner reservation on your first night, but for subsequent dinners, make sure you sign up for a reservation at the front desk each day â€“ the earlier in the day the better to secure your preferred time. Also, if you have any dietary restrictions, tell the folks at the front desk when you are checking in so they can let the kitchen staff know. We're already talking about going back in 2019 with our other sister-in-law who couldn't come with us.

Spent ten days at Cocoa Bay in February, celebrating anniversary. The tone is rustic chic. Accommodations are excellent, the pools and beach are wonderful, and the food is good--not five star but just fine with good choices: Breakfast and lunch are buffet style and dinner is served at table with a good menu. The staff are friendly, helpful,and actually a lot of fun. We particularly liked Denise, Joy, Marrique, Tiffany, Sonia, and "Mr. G." We took a boat tour around the island and a car tour. We took the car tour on a Sunday so some things were closed.

This was our 7th stay at this resort so they must be doing something right. I won't describe the hotel as others have done so in detail but everything was as good as expected, the food was wonderful with so many unexpected flavours in the dinner menu, the staff were all brilliant again, helpful, cheerful and friendly. It's like having family who live along way away and you only see once a year. I liked the new touches, water in the rooms and free wi-fi - I know we are supposed to be on holiday but we need to be in touch with family back home. Even the guests were good this year!! The only people acting a little out of order turned out to be patrons of Sheer Rocks - and I do agree with a previous review that their music can be intrusive at times. The whole point of Cocobay is the peace and relaxation - would-be clubbers look elsewhere. Thank you to all the staff for making this a wonderful holiday again - Mr G, Kathleen, Denise, Saskia, Sonia, Kerry, Davern, Jermaine and his silly hat, Jay, Vincia, Cheryl, the Beach Boys - all of them - and especially Nasasha who was so helpful in getting us moved from a perfectly acceptable and large room to one which my husband preferred with its view over Valley Church Beach - I do hope the view will still be there next year when we hope to visit again.

My sister and I just returned from a 5 day stay at Cocobay. It was everything we were looking for. The room was very spacious and comfortable. The bed and sheets were very nice (I'm very picky). We always had the beautiful French doors open to the wide, scenic verandah. We were welcomed every morning with the sugar birds and lizard. The breakfast and lunch buffets were very nice and the dinners were good. The tenderloin steak with green peppercorn sauce was excellent. All the alcohol is included so if you're a drinker, you'll be in heaven. The minibar is well stocked too. We especially enjoyed the beach service where your drinks were served with paninis if you didn't want to go to the lunch buffet. The resort is not that large so by the end of our stay we felt like we knew most of the staff and other guests. The one thing we really liked about the set up here is that all the cottages are VERY private but the public areas were very casual and inviting. You couldn't ask for a more attentive staff from EVERYONE!
An amazing honeymoon with special thanks to Oâ€™neal and his team, Jermaine in the restaurant and many others in fact too many to mention! The views are stunning, food is fabulous, chalets are rustic yet classy. The beach is lovely, great service down there too. The staff are so helpful. Would recommend it for any occasion. We stayed in room 18, great views, perfect.
