    Great for Couples Only

    Cocobay is absolutely stunning. We took a Jeep tour around the island and I can confidently say the water was bluest and most beautiful at Cocobay. That being said, it’s truly a place for couples only - we were there on a girls trip and it was not really appropriate. There’s no nightlife at all (everything closes by around 10) and it’s extremely quiet. Some staff were INCREDIBLE, but a lot of them were a bit rude. Food wasn’t bad but not a big variety and nothing to eat after dinner (restaurant kitchen closes at 9). Overall, beautiful place to say and relaxing but specific to couples for sure.

    Wonderful week in paradise

    Wonderful one week stay at Cocobay to celebrate wife’s birthday. Friendly welcome at the resort with a refreshing rum cocktail while we waited to be taken to our room. Our deluxe cottage was fine for us, with nice sea views towards the sunset (and Montserrat) and suitably kitted out. The beds were very comfortable. Room service was a bit sporadic, with some items not always being refreshed/replaced, but overall the room was well cleaned. The facilities at the resort are great with nice communal pools and bar facilities. The weather was particularly hot during our stay and it was felt some of the bars/communal areas would have benefitted from some more ceiling fans to keep the often still and humid air a bit fresher. The food was excellent, exceeding our expectations, and service was largely very good (we only had a couple of ‘grumpy’ experiences). The red snapper I had one evening was a particular highlight! We used the snorkel and paddle boarding equipment and enjoyed swimming over to Church Beach and Jolly Beach. The sea/beaches were spotlessly clean and for me, the local nature was a particular highlight of the area. The went on a very interesting and well humoured nature walk with (local character) Vorn Johnson, which we would highly recommend. Overall, we had a wonderful week, thank you to everyone at Cocobay!

    I read the reviews before arriving about the view and Wow! You cant describe how amazingly beautiful, and you can just get lost looking out into the endless ocean. Cocobay made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived, check in was very easy as you can do it online before arrival and really helps after an nearly 8 hour flight. Beautiful resort set out really well, you feel you are walking in a tropical paradise. Humming birds flying amongst the plants was a pleasure to watch. Our Cabin was perfect, a lot larger than I was expecting and the patio doors even to a huge deck which has doors to the shower! Loved the hammock and was so relaxing swinging watching as the sun went down. I was concerned about the food as my husband is very fussy........but every night he would say "this is lovely, cant beat it" Breakfast was plentiful, lunch was either buffet (fresh cooked) or specials (very tasty) and with bar bites and panini I cant see anyone going hungry here! Pools were lovely, back set to amazing views and set at perfect temperature and depth Staff were friendly, helpful, pleasant, polite and a pleasure to watch them dancing as they served us at breakfast. Big shout out to Davin who came to my husbands rescue when he was stung by a jellyfish, he was brilliant. But don't take my word for how fantastic this place is.... go book it.... now! Seriously you will not be disappointed.

    We travelled to Antigua for a 10 day holiday and transferred to Cocobay for the last five days of our stay. I only wished I had booked this resort for the entire 10 days. The rooms all appear to have amazing sea views. Our room was lovely (no, 17) and the french doors opened to the most beautiful view of sea and mountains across the bay. We were welcomed by the staff on arrival and they went out of their way to make sure we had a good time throughout our stay. Glenda our housekeeper kept our room very clean and was so friendly as were all the staff especially our favourite waitress. The sea is emerald green to blue and the pools were amazing especially the infinity pool. We loved sunbathing on a platform in the sea, so private and romantic. Loved the food, I have to disagree with the criticisms, I enjoyed every meal and my partner, who is very picky, always found something on the menu to enjoy. Would I recommend this hotel, yes definitely and we would love to stay there again.

    Visit for the first time and just what we needed. No party place just relax at the beach, the pool or in your hammock with great vieuws ! The grounds are wonderfull, housekeeping service every day with a big smile from Glenda. Food is nice, one day we asked for local food, the next day the chef made us some pepperpot. We loved the staff, we loved Antigua.
