The staff of the hotel is very friendly and treated us as their family members. Rooms are good conditioned. Verities of foods can be enjoyed. The outside area is good when there is no rain. It gives good value for the expended money.

What a little gem of a place. We stayed as a family of 5. All the rooms have a lovely sea view which gives the perfect opportunity to see a lovely sunset. The staff could not be any more helpful, from organising trips to looking after your well-being. It is a small hotel with a friendly relaxing atmosphere . Lots to do in the area, all only a Tuk Tuk drive away.

We had a fantastic stay at the Cocobay. The staff were so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The room was great with uninterrupted sea views across the private beach. The food in the restaurant was excellent. A small, quiet hotel with it's own unique character, that we'd thoroughly recommend.

On our visit to Sri Lanka we stayed at 3properties, this was by distance the weakest but the most expensive one. To be accurate it was the worst property we visited ever.It was more like a little guest house not a hotel;definitely not 5star hotel. We had bookings for 4 nights but couldn’t complete our stay and left soon after we found a beautiful,luxurious resort in the unawatuna main beach road for half the price we paid in coco bay. Positive point is only seafood was delicious others than that everything was awful. -They didn’t have enough dishes or cutlery of the same to serve few tables although they are open to the public as a restaurant. -Room was absolutely dated,rusted and moulded . Black mould all over the bathroom curtain and the mattress protection sheet and pillows , bed smelled puke. Awful beach towels, poor beach equipments all old and broken,poor maintenance of the pool although it’s very small. Extremely small beach area looks private although it’s not but because it’s not in the popular area no one goes there otherwise it’s not private. The beach is black and muddy rather than sand. Overall. All the photos you see on the booking websites are belong to 9years ago when they got everything new.

We spent 12 days at CoCoBay and loved every minute! It has its own private beach and, even when full, is still spacious and relaxing. All of the (enormous) rooms have a spectacular view of the ocean and the beautiful Sri Lankan sunsets. From start to finish, every member of staff - from the friendly receptionists to the smiling restaurant staff to the happy room cleaners and the lovely lifeguard - could not do enough for us and were so friendly and helpful. There are no issues with power cuts as the hotel has its own generator - even the storms are spectacular to watch! Just a perfect place to spend our honeymoon - thank you.

Lovely hotel with a private beautiful beach. Excellent (definitely the best we've experienced!) service from the team, who were all very friendly and helpful. Facilities were great. Food was incredible and so many options for every meal! Essentially a 5-course dinner meal and the menu changed every evening. Beautifully presented pool area with the beach and ocean a few meters away - water is warm, shallow and pleasant. The hotel rooms were amazing - ensuite bathroom (ours had a jacuzzi in it) with a wall-sized window looking through the bedroom and balcony to the beach and ocean. All in all, one of the best holiday's we've had and I definitely think the staff were fantastic and made the stay the best. Would 100% recommend and I am already planning on going back!

We arrived at the hotel very early in the morning and were tired from the long journey. We were given a room key so we could go to sleep and to check in after breakfast. It was great, we were very exhausted. Now, the restaurant - just brilliant. Food, service, just delicious. Very large portions. A different menu every night. Never tired from the food. Our child was quite picky about food. It was never problem - pasta, pizza, french fries - everything was possible. One day we ordered seafood. To do that, they asked what we want, then chef went to the market, brought fresh stuff and prepared a great and delicious seafood lunch for us. Pictures are attached. The pool is not very big, but it was suitable for cooling. Oceanview again. The sun does not shine on the pool during the day, which is very good. The beach is private and ideal for small children. The water is shallow on the shore and gradually deepens. The chairs on the beach are comfortable and covered with pleasantly soft mattresses. The beach has a large tree and many palm trees that provide enough shade. If you wanted to go for a trips there was A/C van you could ordered. I also needed a doctor – they arranged it all! This hotel is a great place to spend a pleasant and relaxing holiday. Everything you needed was there. All the staff and service at the hotel were extremely lovely, friendly and helpful. Wonderful staff worked at the reception, at restaurant, everywhere. Our special thanks goes to Dinesha. If possible we will visit you again! Thank you!
