The hotel

This beautifully positioned adults-only resort has a range of individual pastel-painted cottages with some of the most spectacular views on the island. There's an infinity pool 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!

I have stayed in this resort in end of Jan 2019 for 4 nights. Here are my comments for this resort: What I like, 1. Located adjacent to a small beautiful beach - Coco beach. 2. Large room with nice bay view. 3. All inclusive without thinking of where to go for food. 4. Free flow drinks. Not too good: 1. Food are not tasty, especially the lunch,… Read more

This was our 3rd visit to Antigua each time we have stayed in a different place. Cocobay can only be described as a perfect paradise. Traditional rustic bungalows looking out across the turquoise blue sea. The food was excellent and the staff very attentive. I would highly recommend the hotel and we will definitely return.

I always research before booking somewhere for our annual holiday and thought that cocobay would be perfect for a quiet couples holiday and it nearly was. Room lovely view but you could either call it traditional or basic. I call it basic and when it's windy outside everything rattles. I thought we were being broken into on our first night before I realised it was the trees hitting the cottage. Food if you like eggs then breakfast was for you. Sonia was great at making omlettes and poached eggs. Very few other choices, bacon always available but sausages and beans alternated. Poor choice of cold meats. Lunch was nice, I love fish but if you didn't I don't think you would have. Dinner was very average for a resort that is of this price. Pool was cold but refreshing. We were offered drinks once during the day and felt this could have been more regular given that bar staff not busy Didn't enjoy people who were going to sheer rocks gawping at us sunbathing and posing for photos by the pool it was intrusive. We did enjoy our stay but it didn't hit the spot Read less

A wonderful beach bar with excellent food, wonderful setting, comfortable lounges on a beautiful beach. This is a perfect spot for lunch, close to Carlisle Bay or Cocobay Resorts. Don't miss it if you are spending time on Antigua.
