    Cocobay Resort is the ultimate paradise. Friendly staff, beautiful location. The food was incredible, as were the pools and beach. It was the perfect choice to get away from it all. I’ll definitely be back.

    Spent 11 nights here in a deluxe cottage. The room was spacious with a comfy bed and mosquito net, rustic style. We had a nice view out to sea from our little verandah. There are two pools, the top pool gets busier than the lower pool. We spent time at both of them but mostly we sat on the beach. There’s beach service for drinks. The pools are both nice and warm and both have a bar next to them. The food is pretty good and changes every day. Three courses if you want them for lunch and 4 for dinner. Personally I would’ve liked more local food on the menu.... rarely was there any local options on there. The snacks at the main bar were good, we had the wings and wedges. The pizza night was good, decent pizza. We walked up the beach to Dennis’s bar one lunch time and finally had some local food.... thank goodness.... The staff are all so friendly and helpful. I could list loads but will just name Glendale - fabulous guy, so good at quick at his job and always with a big smile. Lovely Carl welcoming you into the restaurant - a real gent! He gave us a few tips on where to go when we rented a car for the day. Also in the main restaurant Jermain and Davern were great. The ladies at the front desk were all lovely and very helpful. We dined on the beach one night which was excellent!! The food was delicious and we had the lovely Glendale looking after us and two other couples and boy did he work hard running up and down getting our food, pouring wine and taking our photos. We ate at sheer rocks twice as it was so good and made a nice change from the main restaurant. What a lovely Barman - Earl!! The beach was lovely, lots of pretty shells, lovely warm clear calm sea which slopes gently down. The pool towels could be a bit tricky to get hold of on some days, quite a few times we would go to the front desk to get clean towels and they didn’t have any... not just us we could see other guests experiencing this also.. The entertainment was ok, one night it was really nice with a female singer and a couple of musicians. The other couple of nights where they had live music on there wasn’t a singer, just a musician - nice. Most evenings we went to bed quite early as we were getting up early to make the most of the day time and the entertainment wouldn’t encourage you to want to stay up necessarily. We felt very safe here, sanitisers outside the restaurant, reception etc. All staff wearing masks and everyone being really sensible. We are in our late 50s and we were definitely in the minority. 70% of guests are under 35. Not a problem but when they got into groups they could be quite loud. We hired a car for a day and had a smashing time exploring this beautiful island. We did two busy trips, the wadadli cataraman which picks you up on the beach - fantastic chilled day and the other trip was Xtreme circumnav a boat trip with 5 stops including sting ray city which was an incredible experience standing on a sandbank in the middle of the sea surrounded by sting rays and we held them ... All in all a really relaxing holiday.

    I fell in love with Antigua!

    I give 5 stars! The staff made us feel welcomed and they were genuinely happy to make sure our stay was perfect! It’s not like your typical hotel. You stay in these cute cottages with amazing views! I booked a private breakfast by the black rock pool which was amazing. Private dinner on the beach was beyond perfect and our host was spectacular! Along with good vibes, we got to experience amazing food! The food was not like typical hotel food. The presentation and portions were perfect. We were able to have a four course meal without feeling stuffed! We ventured off the resort which was a little scary if you’ve never driven on the left side of the road. Other than that, our vacation was perfect! Make sure to get tested for Covid and have negative results when you arrive at the airport bc they do ask for the results. I was pleased with the precautions taken to ensure that everyone getting on the island was safe. I didn’t feel unsafe at all and so glad to have enjoyed the time at Cocobay! We highly recommend CocoBay. These views don’t need filters ??

    Great also for the solo traveller!

    Alike many of the other reviews you read here, I also cannot find much at fault with this resort. I stayed here for several weeks in August and September, mainly whilst working and each / every employee stood out, whether it was a cheerful greeting from housekeeping or groundsman to the guys at the gate, or the endless and tireless interactions from the front of house team, one thing stood out - they also loved working here. I heard no gripes, mumbles or groans, when I asked for something, nothing was too much trouble - no second requests needed. They even kindly provided a desk, chair and extension power cable in my room within minutes of asking (having a desk to work at) which was awesome. The food was excellent, well thought and you could see the Chefs mind on optimising the ingredients. My only one point here is that as I don't eat Wheat, allergies can be difficult to manage - they did on numerous occasions play around with the dish and I didn't feel completely outcast as some places do when you ask for dietary needs. My room(s) were wonderfully kept, A/C working perfectly and the bed comfortable. Location is fabulous, having travelled the whole island and the beaches, CoCo is spot on the best location. Best tip - hire a car, enjoy what this wonderful Country has to offer - spectacular views, beaches and most importantly - the people. Felt totally safe with the current Covid environment and was well managed, not just at the hotel but to the stores and out and about,

    During COVID, what an exceptional getaway. Cocobay exceeded our expectations in personal service, beautiful grounds and lovely staff. The incredible reception desk always called us by our first names, asked us how our day was going and constantly told us to let them know if we needed anything. Celebrating my husbands birthday they surprised us with bottle of champagne in our room along with a chocolate cake!! Loved our experience and we’re heading back in January...hope to see you there too!!
