Firstly the staff are excellent, the food is very good quality along with the friendly service. Our room was facing the bay, with beautiful views, humming birds around the balcony. Cleaned to a high standard every day. It's a totally chilled atmosphere and sun sets to die for. The beach is fantastic to although not completely private. Personally I'd be very wary beach guys selling tours and trips. We had a guy that uppped his price from 80 dollars to 150 in an hour. This didn't detract from the very best holiday. Big thanks to all the staff..

Hotel's Favourite
This is our 2nd visit to Cocobay having visited in September 2020. It is a wonderful resort with excellent service. All Covid-19 measures are in place and it feels very safe despite the high levels of Covid-19 in Antigua when we visited in early October 2021. On arrival you are greeted by beautiful picture-perfect views out to sea, a run punch and a big welcome. The staff at this resort are all fantastic and it is their mission to do everything they can to make your stay perfect. Rooms are rustic but have everything you need. The mini-bar is topped up on request and there is a bottle of sparkling wine to welcome you. The balcony provides a hammock and chairs so can enjoy the views in comfort. The room cleaners do a good job and it is well cleaned daily. We had a room at the end of the resort which was quiet and peaceful, with the exception of the jungle noises, which add to the experience. We were not bothered by mosquitos as we used the nets provided. There are two pools which provide plenty of beds and shade and each has a bar which provides all the refreshments required for a busy afternoon of relaxing. There are also paninis and snacks available if needed. There is a wonderful beach just below the hotel which has beds and umbrellas and the seaweed is cleaned daily. There are other beautiful beaches in the area to explore. We also went out walking around the area and explored Jolly Harbour which is worth a visit to see some of the amazing houses and boats. There is a basic mini-gym which you book and have to yourself. The restaurant is in a wonderful location with great views. The restaurant is run by Mr Gore who ensures a great experience. The food is excellent, there are plenty of choices for all. The menu changes for lunch and dinner every day and there is a daily breakfast special. If what you want is not on the breakfast menu you can request it and they will do their best to provide. The portion sizes are perfect as you can have a three course meal without feeling too full. We really applaud and thank the chefs who produce such great food with such variety daily. All the restaurant staff are efficient and friendly and we enjoyed our interactions with each of them. Thank you Cocobay for another fantastic holiday- we will be back!

Just back from a fantastic holiday / wedding in Antigua - staying at the beautiful Cocobay Resort. Hard to find a fault! Yes, the rooms are rustic, but it all adds to the charm of the place. It is very unique from other hotels we have stayed at, and the views are to die for no matter where you are on the resort. All staff we came across were extremely helpful and friendly, but I 'can't praise enough Kemlin and her team for organizing such a fantastic day for our wedding party. Nothing was too much trouble, and they seemed to go out of their way to make sure everything went according to plan. I would highly recommend to anyone who is considering getting married in The Caribbean to look at Cocobay - you won't be disappointed! Kemlin - you're a superstar, and thankyou for making our day so memorable. We will definitely return!

We stayed at CocoBay for our honeymoon in Nov 2021 for one full week. We stayed in a Deluxe Pool Suite (#35 to be exact). Keep reading if you want an honest and detailed review of this place! Starting with the Pro’s: Views. The views from Cocobay are gorgeous and pretty unbeatable. Make sure you get a beach facing room if possible- it’s worth the splurge. The views are spectacular from the restaurant, the pools, and the Sheer Rocks restaurant that is on site too. It has a wonderful location a top a mountain! Beach access. Cocobay is a few steps away from little Fryes beach which was super convenient. We rented a jet ski there and hung out there for a day. It is very quiet with no music but the water is crystal clear. Not a great place to snorkel, though- not much to see. I HIGHLY recommend walking to the main Fryes beach (just a few hundred feet away) because that beach is unbelievably beautiful and they have a local restaurant there too. The water there is even prettier and it’s actually one of the most popular beaches in Antigua (although it was never crowded). Food. We actually really enjoyed the food here! For breakfast you had pretty much the same 3-4 options each day (which we always enjoyed) and lunch and dinner was always different and always great with plenty of options. They let you customize your meals and change things around too. We also did the sunset romantic dinner and had delicious lobster and filet (highly recommend as well). The portions were small, but we are big eaters and we were always surprisingly full by desert. Be sure to take advantage of the bar bites from 3-5, those were always delicious and we needed a snack by that time. They serve paninis by the pool all day as well. Drinks. Drinks were good although pretty sugary. But they were unlimited and again, they would customize drinks for you as wanted. You can order pretty much anything you want all day long so we appreciated that convenience. Staff. The staff was super friendly, very accommodating and welcoming. Never any issues here- only positive experiences! Now on to the Con’s… The actual room. We stayed in a Deluxe Pool Suite and although it has an amazing view, it was really in some need of upgrades and probably wasnt worth what we paid for it.. This is not a 5 start resort so keep that in mind. BUT- Our door had a 2 inch thick gap in it, and our bedroom was always covered in bugs/ants. Although they didn’t bite, it was really gross. Although we used the mosquito net constantly, every night we found these little bugs on our pillows and in our bed. We did have the staff come spray our room one night but it didn’t seem to help a lot. We literally had multiple walls in our room covered with hundreds and hundreds of these small bugs. There were also spider webs around the ceilings of the room too and it was in need of some renovations and TLC.. we did wish we had upgraded to an even nicer room or a room without all the bugs. This may just have been due to the time of the year or the door issue- we aren’t sure. Our water pressure was extremely low and one day we actually had no water for a few hours.. The pool outside your room isn’t heated and was very cold which we also were disappointed in. On a more positive note, the rooms are all super private which we loved. Entertainment. There wasn’t much to do here if you are sticking around the resort, so be sure to make plans and keep busy if you don’t like lounging all day. There is no music at either of the pools or at the beach, and sometimes we felt in need of entertainment. Luckily, we booked a private sail at Catch the Cat (BEST THING WE DID) as well as the romance package that included floating pool lunch, a massage, and the sunset dinner. We also booked a day where we zip lines and swam with stingrays which we loved. There are many options which you can book here through Cocobay. We did stay busy and went into town too! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here. If we return to Antigua we probably will go somewhere with nicer/more updated rooms BUT Cocobay was a beautiful honeymoon destination with lots of privacy and wonderful views. We hope that they are able to make some updates to the rooms soon and if so we will definitely be back!!

My wife and I ( who are part of the over 50 crowd) were like everyone else - wanting to get "out" after Covid lockdowns. And to our surprise, so were all the young people who had to put off weddings due to Covid :). So we ended up at CocoBay with nearly 90% of the rest of the guest being young honeymooners - which was delightful. Our travel agent was instructed to find us a resort without the mega resort feel, and CocoBay was right on target. The individual cottages are perfect for privacy. Each cottage has a secluded porch with hammock (where many hours were spent reading a good book) & an outdoor shower. The rooms are simply appointed -bed chairs, A/C and ceiling fan - all you need since not there a lot. The resort property is well laid out with beautiful grounds, and gorgeous beaches. The pool areas (there are two) both have great views. Nightly there was a musician to entertain outside the dining area -always talented. The food was great and portions were smaller -which I like to help stay on diet and not to waste. Chocolate Torte with coffee flavor was my favorite desert. As far as the staff - we never came across one person who was not courteous, friendly and willing to help in any way requested of them. I would recommend staying here to anyone.
