My wife and I just returned home from our honeymoon at the Cox Bay Beach Resort. We picked the hotel based off of the many reviews on here. Given the price ($150 low season, $290 high season for a 1 bedroom) we thought this would be a great middle of the road place to stay. Wow were we impressed!! We... More

Great hotel, right on the beach. The rooms don't have an ocean view and anyone is able to pass through the grounds. But it's still very nice and the location is priceless. I recommend getting a room on the second floor.
