THE place to chill out, the place to enjoy the sun and the sea, the wonderful views and gardens.
Thank you to all the staff members to be helpful and always present when we needed them! Yes the plunch pool is cool, but so nice just to sit there and cool your feet after a trip to St.John's or an island tour. I specially liked the hammock on the patio!
Food was always fresh and tasty, prepared with lots of local spices, and something for everyone. Plenty of nice fresh drinks at the bar.
There was always a place in the sun (or in the shade) next to one of the 2 pools.

We had no special problem with mosquitos or sand fleas.
But please do not book any taxi, horse ride, snorkel tour or island tour with the guy on the beach. It is a rip off! The hotel does not recommend him either.

We went back for the third time in February - that tells you something! You just feel yourself unwinding as the blue sky and incredibly blue sea meet you. The staff are wonderful, they are very friendly and really want you to enjoy the laid back life style. It is all inclusive with no hidden costs. We particularly like the fact that the evening meal is booked in time slots and then you choose from a menu. Only one night is a buffet. Drinks at the bar are brilliant , from coctails to slush puppies, nothing is too much trouble. The view from our cottage was amazing. Someone used the term 'chabby chic' for the cottages and that kind of fits. its nice that they are separate and therefore very private. We certainly hope to be there again next year!

We had so much fun! Tameka, Sasha, Kathleen, Shawn, Manuela- really EVERYONE was amazing. Our wedding day was perfect and I loved the little details like the flowers along the sidewalk. Evelyn Burns, recommended by Tameka, was fantastic and I think about what she said daily. The two couples with us enjoyed it as much as we did and we will all be back! Thank you to the fantastic people at Cocobay Resort! You should go!

Room Tip: Get the ocean view.

Our party of six (3 couples) stayed at Cocobay in late January 2012. We loved Cocobay! The cottages, the property, the service, the staff, the beach, the view - all were outstanding! My husband and I loved the smallness of the resort. It was our first visit to an "adults only" property and we found we liked it a lot! We have been to all inclusives where there's so much food you don't know where to begin, so this was very different and we liked it. The small buffet line at breakfast and lunch had adequate selections, and we would have liked a few more options at dinner but it was fine. We ate at Sheer Rocks one night (following our friends' beach wedding!) and absolutely loved it. I recommend that everyone dine there at least once during your stay.
The beach was wonderful. We were approached a couple times by vendors but they were polite and kept moving. Several reviews have mentioned getting bitten, and I did. I seem to have that unique body chemistry that sand fleas like as I was the only one affected out of our group of 6. I had brought bug spray and remedies with me, but found that oral benedryl was the only thing that helped and was glad they stocked it in the gift shop. The gift shop was great! For such a small place they had an amazing selection of items (clothing, jewelery, gifts, etc) and we all had fun shopping and buying.
A highlight of our trip was spending a day sailing on the Jabberwocky with Nick and Kay. They are super nice and knowledgable about the island and it was a really fun day. Great lunch served on board too. The Cocobay staff should continue to recommend them to their guests!
We love to travel and enjoy going to new locations and places, but we enjoyed our stay at Cocobay so much that I think it will stay on our list of future places to visit again. So many little touches (coming back to our cottage after dinner to find it filled with candles and flower petals, O'Neal personally delivering drinks and delicacies on our last night, "open air" yet private showers) plus the wonderful staff - Cocobay exceeded our expectations in many ways.

Room Tip: Plunge pool cottage is great!
