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 came here to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and it was a perfect, get away from everything location. We were greeted in reception by Nasasha who by far was our favourite member of staff throughout the holiday. We checked in and had a very rummy rum punch and then was taken up to the room. We were in room 15 which had a beautiful view of the sea and a lovely little plunge pool. Bungalows are quaint and cute. I loved hearing the rain on the tin roof of an evening and opening up the shower to see the sea. You need to bring your own toiletries as the ones provided were not so good. There is a safe in the room which is fine to use. The rooms were very clean and the room service of the ladies could not be faulted - clean towels every day and such lovely friendly ladies. Views everywhere were beautiful and it is a really beautiful place to stay. As it was our anniversary the room was decorated with petals and there was a bottle of fizz waiting. It was a lovely addition and made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. There is a two tier system here - if you book direct you get a mini bar, free wifi and fish dishes included in your dinner. With regards to the fish dishes, it didn't really matter to us as neither of us eat fish or seafood. I would say that this is the only negative we had about the whole holiday - it made you think that you were a second class citizen. If you book through anyone but the resort directly you will not get these things for free. Personally I would ditch this as it caused real unhappiness for guests. At all resorts wifi should be free. Now I understand that getting the wifi to the bungalows is more difficult and perhaps this should be a paid for service, however in the main areas it should be free - like by the restaurant ,bar and the pool. Food here is really good, we had no complaints about the food selection or the service. You could easily put on some serious weight here. The wines are fine and you could have sparkling. The cocktails were good, although the choice was limited (well compared to our last hotel). The bars shut at 11pm which seemed early but due to the lack of curtains in the bungalow you were usually up early. We booked two trips - Caribbean Helicopters trip to Monserrat and a day day trip with Shelly Jay. Both were awesome and we would recommend completely. Both were booked through the lovely Nasasha who really couldn't have been more helpful. She was awesome. We also got the bus into the capital which was really easy from the bottom of the road and way cheaper than a taxi. The beach is lovely with blue warm water and beach bar service. Very much enjoyed the pools too. Only thing missing was a hot tub! A big thing here is mosquitos. If you are prone to being bit, then you will be... A LOT. So take lots of repellant and wear it day and night - for yourself, for the room, use the net. There is no way you will not get bit. We booked through Nikki from Beach Bum Vacations who sorted our whole 2 week holiday to perfection, I would recommend her if you are looking for some help deciding where to go.

Our second visit to Antigua but first to Cocobay. Very well looked after as all staff were excellent. Spotlessly clean everywhere. Beautiful beaches, crystal clear warm water which was always calm and the best place to keep cool. A few drawbacks though, there is nothing whatsoever to do when it rains. We had one full day of torrential rain and stayed in our cottage with towels on the floor and read all day. Apart from a hanging rail I had no place to put my clothes so had to live out of my suitcase. We hired a car and bought our own water in a local supermarket and extra strong bite spray as I was eaten alive by something but never saw mosquitos. We were pestered a lot on the beach to buy stuff and pretending to be asleep or saying you had no money didn't help. When we were in the sea I always felt nervous about our bags on the beach as there was track behind the beach and people were up and down in cars so we always had one eye on our stuff and although we didn't experience any problem it kept you on your guard. We organised the car hire through the virgin Rep and went to stingray city which was excellent. A must for us is the Wadadli Cats catermaran day trip around the island tour. We certainly recommend Cocobay and look forward to going there again.

We have just returned home from an amazing 10 night stay at cocobay. It was 10 nights of stunning scenery, relaxation, great food, wonderful people and everything we could hope for for a long awaited vacation. We had a very warm welcome from the reception staff and were given the famous rum punch :) check in was swift, yet informative and we were immediately taken to our room (39) which was beautiful. Dinner was booked for us on the day of our arrival, and thereafter you make your own reservation each morning for that evening. A copy of the evenings 4 course menu is available to view when making your reservation & over 10 nights, the menu was never once repeated which is a really nice touch. Men do have to wear full length trousers and collars at dinner but for us, this wasn't an issue. However anything goes at breakfast and lunch as these are a less formal buffet style meal. The people really make this place, always friendly, polite and happy to help. We found Nasasha at reception particularly cheery and helpful and enjoyed daily chit chats. Although we spent most of our time at the beach (small fryes) the 2 pools are very inviting and always have loungers available. There are locals on the beach selling trips, jet ski rides, jewellery and clothing. They are no bother, they too like the hotel staff are just happy to say hi, and are more than happy to accept a "no thank you, have a great day". We did take a jet ski out from Rambo one of the beech vendors and it was a whole lot of fun :) We arranged a taxi's via reception for a trip to St Johns and it was faultless. We were dropped off and asked when we'd like to be picked up which worked perfectly. I only have 2 very small gripes with the accommodation: It would be nice to have a full length mirror in the rooms. I feel I may have had a better sleep if the rooms had curtains. Without them, I was forced to wake with the rising sun meaning sleeping beyond 6:00am wasn't possible.

Let me begin by saying Cocobay is an excellent resort. My wife and I spent the second week of May there. It was our first trip to Antigua so we didn't really know what to expect, aside from reviews on tripadvisor. Our room (room 6) was in a perfect location. We had a view of the ocean from our back deck and private pool. Our pool was in the sun and the water temp was perfect. I had read that the water was cold and the pool was in the shade- that was not our experience. We really liked our pool. It was completely private thanks to the angle of the cottages and the thick foliage. We commented several times that the private pool is a must. The room itself is a small wood cottage- very quaint. It has two rooms, a bedroom and a bathroom. The bedroom is a bed, a mini-fridge, a dresser and a chair. That's it. There is no TV or radio or alarm clock. There is a small AC unit that keeps the place comfortable. It's not elaborate and it's small, but it's very clean and quiet. The beach is excellent. It is beautiful, the water clear, and the view interesting as you can see other islands and across the bay. There are little huts for shade and beach chairs. You DO NOT have to get up early to claim these. I've been to resorts where you have to get up early to mark your spot. This place is not like that. You can ALWAYS find a hut and chairs. It is not crowded at all. The pools are really cool looking and have spectacular views as they are elevated. We didn't spend much time there, though, because we had our own pool. I will say the big pools had a chemical smell to them- like they had too much chlorine. Again, plenty of chairs and umbrellas- not crowded. The food was REALLY good. We have done a lot of all-inclusives in Mexico and Jamaica. The food here was by far the best. You must reserve a time for your evening meal and you have a set menu of four courses with three choices per course. The presentation and the taste were exceptional. Normally, we like to experiment and try new foods, which we did, but we found it hard to not order the pasta each night. It was crazy good. We stayed for 7 nights and menu was COMPLETELY different each night. Lunch was buffet with varied food. Breakfast was a little bland compared to the other meals, but they have an omelette station. There are two bars, one little one by the beach and lower pool and one by the big pool and dining area. The bigger one is pretty nice. O.P., one of the evening bartenders, does a great job and knows his stuff. There is a good liquor selection and it's not all the cheap stuff. I was a little annoyed that the local draft beer, Piton from St. Kitts, ran out on our second day and was replaced by Heineken bottles for the rest of the week. Antigua is smaller than we expected and seems to be a country that tourists are just now discovering. We did a day trip to St. John's. Not impressive. In fact, you will probably quickly discover that the beaches and resorts are pretty much the only areas of interest. A couple of notes: -No need to rent a car. Take a cab from the airport and stay put. -Mosquitoes weren't bad, but bring spray. My wife sprayed her ankles in the evening for dinner. I never saw one in my room. -There is ALWAYS a breeze on the big bars back deck. -Robert will take you out on a mini sail if you ask him. Nice guy.

Recently returned from the most wonderful holiday at Cocobay Resort, Antigua. I cannot really put into words how I feel but here goes. On arrival we were greeted with a rum punch and the most beautiful smiles. Taken to our room, a waterfront suite, we were taken aback by the views. The room itself was perfect in every way, bathtub on the terrace, plunge pool and the most inviting bed covered in tropical flowers. The hotel itself was perfect, rustic yet luxurious. The food was fabulous, every night a different menu. We spent our time on the gorgeous beach, dipping in the warm Caribbean sea. The all inclusive drinks were superb and all served with a smile. I cannot fault the staff and I don't want to single out anyone in particular. They couldn't have been more helpful, particularly sorting out surprises for my partner's 50th birthday, thank you to all of you. My partner had never been to the Caribbean and I chose Antigua because I had enjoyed it so much previously, it didn't disappoint. We will return hopefully very soon.
