This resort presents itself beautifully on the web page they have designed. Most of the the rooms that I was able to view through windows/doors looked wonderful. The property is located in a quiet residential area and is very well maintained on the outside. WHY did I give it such a low mark? "Studio" is the key word for this not so stellar review. Booked through II and was told this was a studio apartment, totally misleading - small hotel room at best. After viewing the hotel's web site and listening to their recorded message on Coconut Beach resort phone we looked forward to relaxing on our veranda outside of our French doors and taking in the warm tropical paradise we had managed to book. HAH! We reserved a studio with a kitchenette. Upon arrival we found that the room contained a king bed. A dresser. An amoire. A luggage rack. The "kitchenette" was a converted small coat closet that housed a mini-microwave, a mini-coffee maker, a mini toaster, a mini-fridge and a small amount of utensils/dishware. Getting the point. SMALL, small, small. The bathroom (that when spreading out my arms from my side could reach across, corner to corner - the doorway into the bathroom was a 22" door and those who may be on the comfortable size would not have fit through it) contained a small pedestal sink. This was the only sink in the unit and was for brushing our teeth, washing our hands, and doing our dishes. The room's furnishings were extremely shabby, and that is being kind. Barely enough room to walk around the bed - which also doubled as the couch and dining room table. This room was at the back of the property on the street side. Our view was of the trunk of a tree and a stairway. We had a single frame door, no french doors and no veranda here, small hallway, and a bedroom. This is not a studio, it is an extremely small hotel room. If you book a regular one bedroom/two bedroom, this might be a wonderful vacation spot. If you are looking for a studio, and this resort comes up - RUN! I have traveled for years, and this is in the bottom three of places that I have stayed.
