Let me start off with the bad. When you first walk into the main lobby the view is so breathtaking that you may lose your balance as this feeling of overwhelming calm is way too much for this New Yorker to handle.

Let me start off with the bad. When you first walk into the main lobby the view is so breathtaking that you may lose your balance as this feeling of overwhelming calm is way too much for this New Yorker to handle. And when the staff discovers this, they quickly bring over the cool and refreshing rum punch which only adds to your delirium. Then, the staff is so welcoming and so nice that you feel that everyone else in your life that you left at home does not not care about you as much as they do. I texted all my family and friends never to contact me again..And quit my job. I realized that life will never be the same going back to the states. Now the good stuff. All the photos on the website are NO exageration. In fact, they do not do this resort justice. It is more beatuful here than you can imagine. It was our first time and I will be returning next year for certain. We met a couple on their 8th trip to Cocobay. They were from the UK...Not a hop skip and jump. We met couples from western Canada and Colorado. And even from a foreign land called New Jersey ( I never heard of that place..I will google it later) The pools ( both of them) have their own bar with GREAT bartenders. I am a martini with olives person and my wife is a Dirty Monkey ( the drink!!) The Sunset Pool faces the beach and offers spectacular sunsets. And the main pool is beyond gorgeous. The restaurant and food really tries very hard to step up the typical Caribbean cuising by adding an eclectic flair with their menu and presentation. My wife has some eating restrictions and whenever we sat down the staff already knew what they were and accomodated her needs. Food and service was excellent. The rooms are clean beautifully decorated with GREAT mattresses and romantic..open showers that are very very private Walking through the property to and from your rooms is so much fun. Finding you way around the paths that are cut into the hills..really beautiful Now we did not go on any excursions before we did not want to miss a moment at the resort. We only walked to Fryes Beach...which is really at the end of the hotels beach. And actually one of the best beaches I have ever been on on my life. softest sand I have evert felt Here is the deal...No TV's, no crying children (I like kids, we have 5 ). A very very cool laid back crowd. We met people on their honeymoons all the way up to celebrating their 64th wedding anninversary. It is grown up and super romantic, beautfully situated with a constant breeze and spectacular views Enjoy Read less

First stay at Cocobay. We stayed in Nevis 2 with a plunge pool and balcony that looks out to the ocean. The view is amazing from every angle on the property, the pool are perfection. The plunge pool in the room was particularly nice and secluded. There was really no reason to leave the room. DO the floating breakfast. It was the height of luxury.… Read more

The plunge pool in the room was particularly nice and secluded. There was really no reason to leave the room. DO the floating breakfast. It was the height of luxury. We did it in the room, which was really nice. The beach is soft white sands and warm. There is one restaurant but they swap out what is served every day so there is no boredom. We did dinner on the beach and it was great service and private. No one disturbs you at this resort. No pressure to play games and nonsense. You can truly unwind and just enjoy. To top it off there are buttflies, hummingbirds, little cute lizards and frogs. Can't beat it. Leon, Shalanda, and Kerry made our stay even better. Read less

Cocobay was the dream holiday we’d been waiting for. The hotel grounds are stunning and the view from our hilltop cottage was breathtaking. Our room had its own plunge pool and terrace making the perfect setting for chilled out afternoons in a private, secluded space. The main swimming pools and beach are stunning. If you do decide to go the beach all though it is public it is not busy and you receive waiter service from the fabulous staff there. The food throughout the week was excellent. The best that I have ever experienced in a all inclusive hotel. We were never left hungry. A must do is the couples massage! What a unbelievable experience with the most picturesque view! I’ve visited the island before and do believe that this hotel has one of the best sunsets on the whole island. A must do also is to visit Sheer Rocks which is based at the hotel. What really made our trip were the staff who throughout the week couldn’t do enough to make sure that you had everything you needed and were having the best time. A special mention to the manager O’Neal who looked after us throughout the week and always had the biggest smile on his face. He runs a great team and we can not wait to go back for our next stay! Until next time Cocobay. Mischka and Danny Read less

Great staff, quiet, beautiful setting and good food. Experience was wonderful and we will definitely return. The drinks kept flowing, everything was clean and beautiful and well-maintained.

The staff was very accommodating no matter what the request. Another group, sun tours, came and met us at the hotel to help us with our excursions we chose. The drivers for getting to and from places were very helpful and informative. We recommend the second navigation tour. Other guess were very nice and respectful of others. It’s mostly couples.

This was our 5th stay at Cocobay. As usual, it did not disappoint. It really is like coming home when you arrive. The staff welcomes you back like family. In a matter of minutes you are getting hugs followed by a rum punch. The resort is amazing all around. The service, food, cottages, entertainment and beach were all top notch. We are already planning our 6th visit, hopefully it will be the same time. Spending Christmas, Boxing Day, and New Years Eve at Cocobay is just what the doctor ordered. If you decide to go, look for Jermaine, Davern, Kerry, Altino, Vincia, Denise, Glendale, Cathleen, Hugh (on the beach), Jemorl (security) & all of the girls at reception. If you need a cab, please ask for Sherri (1-268-782-3425). She is amazing. Read less
