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 two plunge pools and two 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!

One of the best vacations I have had! Amazing views, amazing team members and an escape from the thoughts of Covid. We were treated like family, it felt like home but way better and the food was great! I would return, and have since recommended to all my family, friends and co-workers. Thank you Cocobay for a birthday to remember!

We arrived at CocoBay prior to checkin time with our adult children with us. The 4 of us had just completed a week-long sailing charter and the two of us were spending three nights at CocoBay while the kids were heading home. We arrived about 10 AM and the kids needed to head to the airport at 1:00 PM - we thought we would relax, have a beer, sit by the pool, etc. all the while knowing we would need to stay outdoors. The resort staff then informed me that due to COVID restrictions, the kids would be required to leave the property. Shortly thereafter, they then told me that if I paid $60 each for the kids ($120 total) they were welcome to stay. Apparently, CocoBay has some mechanism that creates a "COVID bubble" for a mere $60 per person. We opted to get the kids a cab and send them on their way. There were several other incidents that while minor, were irritating given the very low occupancy rate. I would have expected the staff to have been thrilled to have guests and to go out of their way to make us feel welcome and appreciated. Instead, we sometimes felt like we were "in the way." The CocoBay property was very nice, clean, and well maintained. I would likely give them another try in "normal" times to see if things are better. Read less
