This was our second time at Coco La Palm and for thr most partit didn't disappoint.. My main gripe is that when we trying to book the stay on the website, it showed there were standard rooms available. However when I called to inquire, I was told that they only had a standard room available for the first 3 night and after that, there were only deluxe and above and we would have to switch rooms. But it wasn't a deal breaker especially since the said she upgrade us for free and we wouldn't have to pay anything additional. Anyways, so we get there.. And when they say standard room, I mean boy is it standard!! Old furniture, needed a new paint job, old janky half rusted safe, tiny bathroom, flukey air conditioner, no ceiling fan... On top of that, ANTS!! I mean, it sounds worse than it was.. It wasn't that big of a deal, it served our purposes plus had a nice little porch and table outside.... That is, until we switched to our new room! I mean, it was like night and day.. Beautifully furnished, new air conditioner, new(er) TV, new safe, ceiling fan, fresh paint job, MUCH bigger bathroom w/ storage space, etc etc.. I just thought it was kinda messed up that they would have that much of a difference between standard and deluxe..
But outside of that fiasco.. I still like the resort, the people are friendly, food and drinks are good and reasonably priced, the beach in front is very nice.. I just wish they would step their game up. 1) They need to have beach service. It sucks always having to go the the bar and come back w your food/drink 2) They should put some speakers so you can hear the music on the beach, not just at the bar/restaurant 3) the one night they were having some sort of 'staff talent show' before a music act.. WTF? Staff talent show?? I felt like I was at some corny all inclusive resort in Ocean City, MD.. I just feel like they need to strive for a more upscale atmosphere to match their prices as this resort is not exactly cheap.. The whole vibe just seems a little stale, they need to spice it up, do something.. There are other places on the beach that have a much hipper, saucier-kind of vibe.. I understand they may be trying to cater to a more mature crowd but it shouldnt be like staying at a retirement home either.. Sorry AARP
