Cocobay turned out to be more than we could have ever imagined. We were looking for a smaller, boutique hotel and we got all that and more. Overall review from our experience: this is a great, rustic boutique resort that is perfect if you want great food and privacy. Do not come here expecting the Ritz, you will be with nature (geckos, birds, etc), which I think is the whole reason you would want to come to Cocobay!
First, the rooms. If you want privacy and beautiful views, you will get them. Our bungalow was #22, perfect sea view room. Air conditioner was a life saver as the end of May was pretty muggy. Each room feels personal and is just the space you need to unwind, sleep, and enjoy a book or coffee on the hammock, which I especially recommend.
Second, the food. Despite what others have said on TripAdvisor, I thought the food was delicious. Being a pescatarian, I was pleased with the variety of meat, fish and vegetarian options. Breakfast was pretty much the same every day, but lunch and dinner were different every day. Very fresh, well seasoned, and portioned perfectly.
Third, the drinks. The bartenders are wonderful at accommodating requests. Great selection of liquors, not just your well stuff. Especially the Antiguan rum, delicious.
Fourth, the service. Overall, service was wonderful. You would every now and again run into a staff member who was less than friendly, but all were helpful. Many went over and above expectation and we were overall pleased.
Lastly, the atmosphere. Antigua is beautiful and Cocobay makes your visit even more exquisite. We wanted a relaxing, honeymoon getaway and we got exactly that. We wish we would have done some of the excursions, but I guess it is just an excuse to visit again, which we definitely will!
