There's 2 plunge pools and 2 infinity pools, one perched on the cliff edge, and you'll find yourself relaxing here as soon as you see the view. The main restaurant is on three different levels and enjoys alfresco breezes, while Sheer Rocks restaurant offers delicious gourmet cuisine with individual booths for extra privacy all overlooking the beautiful bay. There's a 'Wellness Cottage' that offers a range of wonderful treatments. On either side of the bluff lie two beautiful beaches, with a third within walking (or kayaking) distance!

November 2019 Celebrated my HONEYMOON! When we arrived we were greeted with the best hospitality, given cool towels and drinks to start. This place is BREATHTAKING none of my pictures or videos give it justice. The service was phenomenal from the front desk (Mandy), bag service/resort intro (Leon), bar (Acreeta & Altino ), management (Oneal), server's (Sherron), Spa (Danielle and Maria) and so many other names I wish I could remember. Everyone is so polite and accommodating. I wish I could mention some of the chefs because let me tell you the FOOD is to die for. I'm from Miami and a foodie so I have had it all. So it's pretty hard to knock me off my feet with Food or dishes I haven't seen or heard of well this place did that. My all time favorites were : steak, lobster, grilled marlin or tuna, jerk pork (really any pork dish was fantastic), the soups omg so good or the pasta of the day, and PLEASE leave room for Dessert! My husband and I also splurged on the romance package best thing we could have done. The floating breakfast, candlelight dinner and massage are memories we will cherish forever. I choose this trip based on a photo I saw on Instagram nothing more. The best decision and hands down best vacation we have taken ever. We can't thank the staff and Antigua enough for making our Honeymoon so special!! Read less

Stayed at Cocobay for 4 nights (wish it could have been longer). Everything was perfect. First morning we did yoga out on the pool terrace (which was great, my girlfriends first time). Food was good and drinks were great! music most nights at the dinning area or bar. Spent most of the time on the beaches around Cocobay (drinks bought to you on the beach next to the hotel by the staff, which was the icing on the cake) as this was my 3rd trip to Antigua so have done allot on the island and seen other beaches. The beaches here weren't busy. one morning I walked to Darkwood beach (about 15mins) and was the only 1 on the beach. This hotel is perfect for couples as you can do as much (exercise class most mornings) or as little as you want. We both had a massage on the beach and got some rum in coconuts 10 min walk from the hotel. I also used the Hobbie Cat, kayak and paddle boards which were great. Jet ski's where the cheapest around as well. Only slights niggle was no snorkelling as the visibility was bad but I was assured it is clear sometimes and you can always get a boat trip out. What makes this place is the staff. On the last day my girlfriend got ill and Dennis was very kind in making her stuff for the room and front desk even had a well stocked medicine box to provide what ever she needed. Couldn't recommend staying here more!!!! Read less

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Cocobay Resort, it was perfect! We had the deluxe cottage with private pool and ocean view; breathtaking view. The resort itself is tucked away perfectly between green hills and the beach. I have never seen so many different shades of blue. I must say that each staff member that we encountered was so helpful and kind. My husband booked us a private pool side dinner and our server Javier went above and beyond with his service! Altino, the bartender, went out of his way to grind up some fresh ginger in order to make a specialty drink that my husband requested. If you get a chance to interact with any of the following staff members they will definitively make you feel more than welcome; Kerry at Rafters, Altino the bartender, Vencia sunset pool bartender, Mandy at the front desk and Javier with private dinner. Highly recommend!!! Read less
