Arrived home yesterday after a wonderful week at Cocobay, we had a fantastic time everything at the resort exceeded expectation.
A bit of confusion with the taxi from the airport but soon sorted out. Greeting at Reception was really nice,bags carried to cottage by Receptionist and Porter.
Cottage was nice,we had one wing (sounds like a stately home) of one of the Plantation cottages,large inside bathroom,fantastic view across to Jolly Beach.
The Bar was alright,if you can get near through the throng who " must sit and stand at the bar " . Oriel the Barman was a bit morose,maybe due to the fact that he is so busy he did,nt have time to interact with his customers,although when I asked him for a favour he went out of his way to help.
The Restaurant is absolutlely great, Breakfast as much as you can eat,and yes the Egg Ladies are brilliant. Lunch as breakfast but less choice but still plenty. Dinner great I ate things and flavours I'd never have dreamt of.Birds at breakfast are a bit of a pain,but can make you smile.
Sheer is very good a bit pretentious and pricey,but the food and the setting make up for it. We did have a problem while at Sheer which took a couple of days to resovle satisfactorily,but was sorted eventually.
It was my wifes Birthday when we were there,I ordered flowers through the Reception they were delivered at exactly the time I requested, and she loved them, and when we returned to the cottage the bed had been covered in flowers by the cleaning lady
( not from the bouquet). And members of staff spent the next two days asking if she'd had a nice Birthday.
All in all we had a fantastic time all the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Tip! If you want to use a curtesy room to freshen up before going to the airport you need to arrange it early on the day.
