My husband and I were married in New York, a few days after Hurricane Sandy. We had booked our honeymoon, at Cocobay Resort well in advance, and did our research before we went. Our wedding went off with some minor problems, but looking back (a whole four months later) our honeymoon was absolutely fantastic, everything we dreamed of and more.
Upon arrival, we were greeted with friendly smiles and some yummy Rum punch (which we became addicted to after 6 days of being in the beautiful Antigua). Oneal, the manager is awesome and the staff is amazing. Welcoming and so helpful.
We had booked a Seaview Pool Cottage, "OL" and it was freaking incredible. So private, romantic and just all around amazing. The entire resort was breath taking. Luxurious, clean, and we were super pampered from the wonderful staff at Cocobay. My husband and I enjoyed the couples massage on our porch which was OUTRAGEOUS!! , and on the last night of our stay, a nice surprise was waiting for us in the room when we got back which we LOVED (don't want to spoil it for any other honeymooners out there)
The food was delicious, no complaints from us. We stayed six nights, I'm pretty sure I had lobster 4 of the 6 nights (by choice of course) and I was in heaven.
As I started earlier, I did my research before booking and read that people had complained about mosquitoes. My husband and I did not find it to be buggy around the resort, but we had went around the island on excursions, and one night we went into town and I did have a little issue with the mosquitoes, so just be sure to bring some bug spray and your set to go!!
Our overall experience was phenomenal at Cocobay and we cannot wait to go back ( we were even considering relocating and trying to make a living in Antigua!!) !!
Thank you Cocobay for the best honeymoon experience ever. We love you guys!
