We had an amazing 9 night vacation at Cocobay Resort. The views are fantastic from every part of the resort. We have been lucky enough to travel to over 15 islands in the Caribbean and this trip to Cocobay was one of the best!
Front desk staff with Kemlin, Janine and Damond were phenomenal in making our trip special with excursions and getting a great cottage with a beautiful view!
During dining, Carl, Jermaine, Denise and Kermisha made every meal enjoyable. We had a lovely beach dinner with Marsha J as well. The meals are fantastic with 4 course dinners and 3 course lunches. Lunch/dinner changes daily with wide selections. In addition, paninis available throughout the day at the beach bar and also bar bites in the afternoon at the main bar so it is very hard to go hungry here!
Altino and Louis were fantastic in the main bar each day and we enjoyed challenging them to make some fun/unique cocktails!
2 special shout outs-
Kerry, every day was incredibly happy and hard working. He truly is an asset to Cocobay and we really enjoyed sharing stories with him!
Vincia was always smiling (even through the mask) and very welcoming each day at the beach bar. She was always willing to fill up our thermos so we recommend bringing your own for fill-ups!
You can walk to both Ffryes and Valley Church Beaches in addition to Little Ffryes beach that is directly below the resort. Make sure to take advantage of these pristine mostly empty beaches! Roxanne was available for beach drink service each day and did a great job.
We highly recommend booking directly with the resort and becoming a "member" as you get many additional perks!
The resort did a great job with COVID 19 policies in place so we always felt safe! Not to mention that you are outside in warm weather of Antigua with great sea breezes.
The highlight of our trip was the wonderful staff and it is one of the main reasons we will be coming back!
We just returned from the time of our life at CocoBay!! Every single staff member is more than accommodating and makes you feel so welcome. A special shout out to every single front desk staff, Katileen at rafters, Daphne in housekeeping and everyone else. Every worker at cocobay deserves a raise as they go out of your way to make your vacation great!
This resort met everything on our checklist: great food, beautiful pools and beaches, clean rooms, great service, and safe. They also went above and beyond in keeping everyone safe from covid and we appreciated feeling somewhat back to normal during these crazy times.
Thank you CocoBay for the best vacation. We will certainly be back!!
We were fortunate to stay at the Cocobay Resort in early January for 2 wonderful weeks. The location is one of the best we have ever seen. Stunning views from all angles, including the cottages, restaurant, bar, and swimming pools. All meals are a la Carte, with a linen napkins placed in your lap by the Maitre d' who takes you to your table. This is your first hint of what is to come. The menu of the day for breakfast, lunch and dinner is then presented to you. There are always three choices and never once were we disappointed. The food is excellent and presentation is incredible. In the cottages, the beds and pillows are so comfortable, you then open the double doors onto the balcony with a view across the bay. On a Sunday (from cottage 40) we could hear the choir singing in the church across the valley whilst simultaneously watching a turtle swimming across the bay.....amazing !
The staff can't do enough for you, from Janine on reception, through to Denise and Carl in the restaurant. Louis and Altino on the main bar will anticipate your alcohol requirement from the second day with grace and professionalism, and Vinicia on the pool bar is just such a pleasure, a real sweetheart. If you fancy a sail Roxanne will take you out, and if you just want to lay on the beach she will bring you your drinks and your lunch, always with a smile.
We hope to return to Cocobay again and can't recommend it highly enough.
