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.

Our cottage was romantic and everything was so clean. We felt like we were truly in paradise for the whole week and loved the spa, infinity pools, and the beach. The drinks and the food was delicious. Ever since we left, we have already started planning our second visit someday. Best vacation ever! Read less

My husband and I visited this little slice of paradise and I just cannot fault it at all. From the moment we stepped into the hotel we were looked after by the wonderful staff. The gorgeous pastel huts we stayed in were amazing. Everything was so clean and tidy. The food was delicious with plenty to choose from. It was a perfectly relaxing holiday with some amazing excursions. The trips into the town were good and you can grab a taxi out the front. Diamonds international was a favourite lol. Excursions were great and highly recommended, go to Shirley's heights if you can. The barman was a star with making cocktails. Thank you for giving me such wonderful memories, one day we will be back Read less

This was our second holiday to Cocobay, we arrived on 3rd March and stayed for 9 nights. On arrival we were welcomed like old friends and delighted to discover that we had been upgraded to a Premium Waterfront Room ( Soursop) for 24 hours which was a real treat :-) The view from this room was stunning and we loved our first morning enjoying the view and the private pool. Last year we stayed in a Deluxe Room with private pool, so were slightly concerned when we moved to our permanent Deluxe Room, as we assumed we wouldn’t have as good a view as last year......there was no need to worry, we were given room no.16 which had a stunning view and easily as good as our view last year, and nearly as stunning as the premium waterfront room. A few changes had been made since our stay a year ago, this included the introduction of a menu with two choices for starters and main course for lunch, as well as the usual buffet style choices too. A pizza evening has also been introduced on a Friday night at the sunset pool bar ( we didn’t bother to try this, why would you eat pizza when you can eat in Rafters restaurant, which as usual was outstanding). A big thank you goes to Carl for his professional and first class service, he really is a true gem. And a very special thanks goes to Vincia too, another gem amongst the wonderful Cocobay staff, her cocktails really are the best, my husband says he’ll dream about her Pina Coldas until we return :-) she’s always smiling, happy and a great source of local information too...thank you Vincia you made our trip even more special.......but the whole staff at Cocobay really are Wonderful ..... always going above and beyond to make your stay the very best. We met some lovely people during our holiday, ( Mike and Jill, James and Jan, Yvonne and Karl hope you are all well xx ) the hotel attracts a really interesting mix of empty nesters and honeymooners usually from both US and UK..... unfortunately during our stay there was a group of three young American couples who were determined to try and drink the bar dry, they were very loud, and annoying .....but luckily they didn’t stay very long ( and in typical Cocobay style the hotel dealt with them quickly and efficiently ....doing their very best to lessen the impact on other guests) ... I have to say that these guests really were the exception! Will we return ? Oh yes please.........we have a big anniversary coming up in a few years and (all being well) will be returning then for our third visit. Thank you Cocobay 🥰🥰 Read less

Lovely place to spend some lazy time, food very good all the staff gardeners included excellant, been there several times, and hope to return several more times.Beach very good, not to busy and plenty going on around to keep you occupied. Plenty of places to visit English Harbour is very interesting and you can easily spend all day there, include a lovely meal at the Pillars Restuarant, also a day spent in St.Johns, when no cruise ship is in,is also a pleasant day out. Do try and visit outside of the Hotel as the people are amazing and very helpful with there History knowledge. Read less
