Our 4-night stay at Cocobay Resort was fabulous! Top notch accommodations and service! We are three adults who stayed in the Ocean Privilege Suite and it was perfect - very spacious, large bathroom, nice sitting area, large balcony and very comfortable beds. Rooms are very quiet

This is an absolutely wonderful place, from the moment you walk in the door you are treated beautifully. About 6 Km from the old town, in a perfect setting. Rooms are beautiful, sitting on the balcony having a drink and watching the sunset 100 metres from the sea is brilliant.

Absolutely beautiful hotel with its own private beach. Huge room, with aircon, safe, minibar and complimentary bottled water each day. Beautiful bathroom with jacuzzi tub. The staff couldn’t be more helpful and the welcome included a refreshing fruit cocktail and cold towel.

My reply would be exactly what the previous person stated. Repeat that there are 3 ground room floors. Dining room and bar are also at ground level. Do not recall but I believe access to lounge are on beach have something other than sand on the walkways, As suggested, check with the hotel directly for exact answers to your relevant questions. If you go, do enjoy.

Tuktuks are the easiest way to get about. 5 mins to Unawatuna and 10 mins to Galle. You could walk but the roads are not that well lit everywhere and the tuktuks cost about 1 to 2 pounds. Both have plenty of restaurants although Galle is more expensive but not prohibitive and fairly varied. The hotel dining is really good with lots of lovely fresh seafood and good western food if that is your thing. It is obviously more expensive than some local restaurants but 10 pounds would buy you some great seafood. The John Dory in banana leaf was one of the best things we ate and it was about 5 pounds. Hope that helps, it is a lovely hotel in a great country. Have a great time.

Is there an All Inclusive option at this hotel please?
We stayed there in January 2017 and as far as I am aware there is no fully inclusive. We were on half board which was a good choice. We were there to relax so it was a late breakfast at 11am which would see us through to dinner. There is also afternoon tea served in the room. Hth
