My boyfriend and I recently returned from a 5 night trip to Cocobay. I must say that Cocobay far exceeded our expectations! The resort is small but beautiful with two infinity pools both with breathtaking views of the ocean. One is brand new with a large lounge area and its own bar. This pool is also just steps from the beach which is also very nice. The staff at Cocobay is wonderful, all so pleasant and friendly from the bar/wait staff, housekeeping, front desk, to the manager O'Neal. If you have any problems or questions, O'Neal is the man to see. He is fabulous. Any trips or excursions should be planned through the hotel. We did the Lobster Creole cruise which was the highlight of our trip. Highly recommend it if you are looking to leave the resort for the day, and reasonably priced at $130 per person. Cocobay is the perfect place for a quiet, relaxing vacation. We did nothing but eat, drink and sit by the pool for three days...and we loved it!!!
Some recommendations; Sheer Rocks restaurant is located on the property but is not included in the all inclusive. The bar is great and we visited it almost nightly for one or two drinks just for a change of pace. We decided to eat there one night and we were disappointed. The food was much better at the resort. Go to Sheer Rocks for drinks and sunset but save your money and go back to the resort for dinner. The booze was not top quality, but the drinks were strong which you don't usually find at an all inclusive.
Bring your own face cloths as they don't provide these with the towels (if that matters to you). Also, I'd recommend bringing some bug spray. The bugs weren't too bad but I did have some bites on my legs. Definitely not as bad as some reviews made it out to be, although I think November and December is the "buggy" season. If you forget anything don't worry, there is a gift shop at the resort that has almost anything you could possibly need.
Top notch vacation, can't wait to go back!
