My boyfriend and I stayed at Cocobay Resort in Apring, 2014 for our 3rd anniversary. I can't tell you how amazing this resort is! We looked into St. James Resort and were so happy we chose Cocobay! Upon arrival, we were greeted with a refreshing rum punch and were brought around for a little tour of the property. It turned out that our room was double booked (we had booked a room close to the water with a plunge pool.) and we ended up in a room without the pool with a decent ocean view. The manager O'neil apologized for the confusion and said that they would change our room to the one we originally booked by the next morning. To make up for the one night, we received a complimentary bottles of vodka, champagne, and white wine in our room, along with a complimentary couples massage during our stay.
The staff at the resort are all extremely friendly, helpful, professional, and will go the extra mile if you need anything.
The food was nothing short of amazing! I looked forward to every meal! The breakfast and lunch buffets were so good and had such a variety of fresh food! Dinner was always my favorite! The soup of the night always had me wanting more! The portions were perfect! We booked through the hotel directly, so we didn't have to pay an extra $20 (or whatever the sub cost was) for specialty plates like the lobster or filet! :)
The resort itself was so clean and well kept. The gorgeous bougainvillea flowers gave everything a romantic touch. We had a candlelit surprise in our room during our stay that they randomly do for their guests during their stay. (You'll have to stay here to find out!!!!) ;)
The pools were all awesome! The beach is a short walk down the stairs. The gift shop on the property came in handy. Men must wear pants and a collared shirt for dinner so this place saved my boyfriend with some nice linen pants since he only brought one pair!
I can go on and on about this place. I travel A LOT to caribbean islands and throughout central america.. and Im a pretty picky person when it comes to resorts in all categories. Cocobay exceeded my expectations! Don't even waste your time researching other resorts!
Cant wait to go back some day soon!
Oh, and make sure you check out Shirley Heights for sunset on Sunday night! Steel drum band, awesome bbq food and amazing views!!
