Coconut Court Beach Hotel

Barbados, Caribbean

The hotel

About as ‘seaside’ as you can get, the Blades family have called this sand-hugging spot home for more than four decades. And they chose a pretty perfect beach for their hotel — which is probably why hundreds of Hawksbill marine turtles call it home too. As you’re here for the beach, the Blades have made sure you’re never far from it, whether you’re lazing on the free loungers, watching moonlight movies on the sands, soaking in the seafront pool and whirlpool, sipping frozen cocktails at the beach bar, or lingering over candlelit suppers at The Deck. The beach itself is lined with beautiful trees to provide natural shelter from the Caribbean rays, so those that don't wish to worship the sun need not worry. It’s not just by the beach though — it’s also steps from South Coast Boardwalk which links you to an array of shops, restaurants and Rockley Beach. The hotel also features an open air restaurant overlooking the white sand beach. Above all else, do not forget to savour a Pirate Punch during one of the several 'happy hours' each day — a traditional Blades family recipe with a twist!

We initially booked a private apartment but due to the government changes we booked coconut court to quarantine until the 2nd negative covid test. We arrived and were not told any information about what would happen with our COVID test so we waited. We arrived on a Sunday and after speaking to other travellers they booked a private test at a cost of $220 each, we had already spent money on the private apartment and another cost at coconut court so decided we couldn’t afford to pay $220 each. We were due to leave coconut court Wednesday as we saw on the government guidelines that we will he contacted for the 2nd test by day 2 which should of been by Tuesday. We saw a official at the hotel so enquired about our test they said they will call us ASAP. They contacted us that afternoon and informed us we can be tested on Thursday but we explained our situation that we only booked coconut court until Wednesday they stated that’s fine and they will pick us up from the next apartment where we are staying. After speaking to travellers again they said some people had not got their results for 48 hours we did not want to wait even longer as this would take up half of our holiday in quarantine. We decided to pay $220 each for the test this took place Wednesday morning. We were due to check out at 11am so after having the test we proceeded to do so however when we went to leave the hotel they refused to let us leave. I tried to explain we had spoken to an official and they knew we were leaving again they refused to let us leave. We had to pay for yet another night at the hotel, eventually we left Thursday morning. When we checked in we were informed breakfast was included but this wasn’t and again was an extra cost. Breakfast was at 7-8am for everyone that is quarantined but after breakfast you cannot even get a drink until 11am. To make this an absolute disgrace we went back to coconut court the next week to pick up some friends and on the front desk it stated everyone can book a private test at a cost of $142.50 what an absolute joke that we had to pay $220 just a week earlier. It states coconut court do not make money from this when they blatantly do. We then found out some people were given contact numbers and email address’s to make contact for the 2nd test. We were informed of NOTHING. This ruined our holiday and communication is a huge problem. Coconut court is not all to blame but they did not try and make our experience any better. Thank god for our next stay at the private apartment where we always stay. We managed to enjoy the rest of our holiday on the beautiful island. Read less

Wonderful hotel. Very friendly owners and superb location right on the beach. We have been here a week now of a 16 night stay and have found it to be perfect. Very good value for money compared with many other hotels and the way the quarantined guests are treated here is very impressive. Quarantined guests are given exclusive use of their newly refurbished pool area and breakfast at a separate time and lunch available by the pool or restaurant. A number of local restaurants will deliver to you room for evening meals in that period . We enjoyed the very comfortable sun beds and bar service during our 3 day quarantine period prior to our 2nd negative result. The rooms are lovely and well equipped. We had booked a luxury direct sea view room with a kitchenette. All newly arrived guests are allocated a room in a part of the hotel and then if they are staying on like us they move to their room originally booked. The staff all wear masks on duty and it’s feels a very safe environment. Breakfast is good and Jakes restaurant bar across the road is good too. There are organised trips from the hotel which we are looking forward to. We are extremely happy here. The usual activities of live music and bbqs etc are of course not permitted but this hasn’t affected our stay. If anything it has made it feel extremely relaxing so far Read less

Once again we are having a wonderful time at coconut court. We spent 2 days in the pool deck quarantined until our negative second test. Guests are kept apart from each other and once you have your negative test you are free to use the beach and leave the hotel. So glad we came and once here all the protocols you have to go through are worth it.… Read more

Well what can I say.... Fantastic, beautiful, stunning. We are so relieved to be here during this awful pandemic, especially after the uncertainty involved in getting here. It was certainly worth it on arrival with all the wonderfully friendly staff. Why can't people appreciate that there is so much false information being put on social media and on here. I won't deny it was stressful getting here but was so worth it on arrival. Barbados has everything planned so well and I wouldn't take any notice of the false and untrue comments people are leaving about not being worth it. We had our test done in the UK and had our second one 2 days later and whilst waiting we had 3 days relaxing and being catered for by Coconuts wonderful staff around the pool and were able to use all facilities apart from leaving the hotel. We were soon on that wonderbeach and Barbados hospitality. It's simply the best place to be during these difficult times and we have yet to come across any negatives. Just enjoy and relax By the way, we loved Trisha, ❤ Read less
