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
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. 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

This was our second stay in this beautiful resort, we never travel to the same destinations twice but after we had such amazing time last year we couldn't resist another stay this year and the holiday again was absolutuly superb. The resort is located in an excellent position on this beautiful island and has two pristine beaches as well as two well kept swimming pools, the accommodation is unique and and has very pretty grounds. The food choices are very good with a good range of a la carte meals in the evening all cooked to perfection and served with a smile. The staff are the jewel in the crown and go out of their way to make the stay a memorable one, I would especially like to mention Carl the Restaurant Manager who did everything he could to accommodate my wife's dietary requirements and Glendale who looked after us whenever he could, his smile was infectious and he made our holiday special, he is a very special person who is an asset to the resort and somebody we will never forget. I would highly recommend the resort and many of the other guests have stayed multiple times which says it all, we will definitely return in the future to this paradise resort. Read less
