I've travelled significantly over the years and was thrilled with my stay at Cocobay and Antigua and would 100% go back. If you only like large resort experiences, Antigua may not be the place for you (not just Cocobay as all other resorts are going to give the same experience based on our discussions with people at Tamarind and Cocos). That said, if you want a truly relaxing experience, the absence of large resorts creates an atmosphere that can't be beaten. Everyone we ran into all shared the same feeling. Room are slightly dated, but have a certain charm. Reminds me of a rustic beach house we'd rent nearby. Would be nice to see some upgrades in the bathroom, but otherwise cozy and loved the hammock and deck. Would also like a stronger lock/more secure door as I felt like I could easily kick the door in if I wanted. With no large resorts nearby, evenings are very quiet and relaxing with no sound of thumping music in the distance while having a night cap on the deck. Food a service was phenomenal, can't say enough about this. Meals were prompt and great overall. I highly recommend the sunset and upgraded dinner experiences. Drinks were great and service was pretty quick (depending on what you order of course). The snacks from the kitchen while poolside up until 5pm were great. Pools and amenities were great and the views can't be beaten. Previous reviews talk about difficulty finding spots at either of the 2 pools and beach, but that wasn't our experience. There are really 3-4 beaches very close by. Little Frye's beach was less than a 4min walk from our cottage (this is the "resort beach"), Frye's beach is less than 2 minutes from the end of Little Frye's beach, Valley Church is 10mins off the resort and Jolly is a short cab ride away. We personally preferred the beach attached to the resort. Beaches are public, but we didn't have any issues at all. We frequently left our phones/bags under the huts for the resort and went into the water. Arguably the most relaxing vacation we've ever had and will go back sometime in the future.

We have traveled to several destinations and this one was the smallest resort. But the staff absolutely made us feel like family. Breathtaking views, incredible food and people. We would recommend this resort hands down to anyone. if you are looking for somewhere to get away from routines and spend quality time together you will Not be disappointed

Just go

This is the most relaxing vacation I have ever had. This is a small, picturesque resort. The staff is amazing. The views are outstanding and the food is very good as well. I had a wonderful massage overlooking the bay. It was fantastic. We took kayaks across the bay and the beach there is awesome. If you want to unwind, Cocobay is your place. If you want to party, not so much. Come here and relax and look at the amazing views. And don’t forget to tip your hostesses, they deserve every penny. Beach across the bay is better but views are better here. Gym is small but I didn’t come here to work out.
