Coco Reef Resort & Spa

Tobago, Caribbean

The hotel

This elegant hotel lies in its own beautiful well-tended gardens. The ambience created in the hotel attracts a high rate of repeat visitors and the level of service here is top notch — you'll be impressed by the little touches, like speedy check-in, nightly turn-down service and Champagne cocktails at the intimate Bobster's Champagne Bar. During the day, you can choose from a range of non-motorised water sports and treatments at the tranquil spa, or simply relax by the pool or in the gallery lounge with afternoon tea overlooking the ocean. The private white sand beach is one of the best on the island with a specially built lagoon to create a calm swimming area for kids. You will find superb cuisine in two restaurants for both buffet dining and à la carte dining.

1)The shower was non functional, incredibly ancient, almost no lighting at all, had to request someone to attempt to fix the shower every day but made very little difference, showered in cold water the first day then when that part was somewhat fixed, there was hardly any water at all coming from the shower head.

1)The shower was non functional, incredibly ancient, almost no lighting at all, had to request someone to attempt to fix the shower every day but made very little difference, showered in cold water the first day then when that part was somewhat fixed, there was hardly any water at all coming from the shower head. We dreaded having a shower which is something so important. 2)No housekeeper around which was odd. 3)Waited 2 hours for simple breakfast to be served. 4)The person who took us to our room upon arrival, watched us struggled up the stairs with our suitcases and never even offered to help. 5)Room is in desperate need of an upgrade. 6)Won’t return and won’t recommend to others.

Had to call reservations several times simply to get through to the front desk. Read less

We have been coming to CoCo Reef for perhaps 25 years - before Eric was GM (he was F&B manager at the time). Coco Reef was Eric and vice-versa. It was the reason that so many guests returned without fail year after year. Our trip in March was wonderful as always. Whilst a lick of paint here and there was perhaps needed (and where in the heat of the Caribbean is that not the case) and the food not quite up to Michelin standards, the lovely, relaxing ambiance persisted, and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. No doubt the owners had their reasons, but to part with such a superb and committed manager - especially in such troubled times and with no communication to regular guests - can perhaps be best explained as an error of judgement. After so many years of loyal support, we, as many others, are unlikely to return. Read less

Having visited Coco Reef for 7 years and realising that our repeat visits were mainly down to our amazing friend Eric Feniet and his very capable staff, imagine our shock on hearing of Eric's untimely and unsavoury dismissal when trying to book for this year. There's no doubt in our minds that Eric was the Coco Reef! What an amazing and thoughtful host, nothing escaped his notice and he and his staff tried their utmost, every single day, to ensure you had the best time ever! Believe me when I say we did. What hard times for the global travel industry at the moment, what a huge error of judgement to dismiss the one person who could have pulled Coco Reef up by the bootlaces to resume it's former glory once travel and tourism is up and running again after this terrible pandemic as we, like many others will not be returning.
