I recently stayed in Cocobana for 10 days in a super deluxe aircon room, and enjoyed my stay alot.
The room I had was extremely spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. Cocobana is not the newest resort, some things (in the bathroom for example) are a little bit worn out, but fully functional. Hot water shower worked fine, as did the aircon.
The highlight of the room was the huge balcony with its stunning view of Bounty Beach and the ocean, sunsets included.
There was still some reconstruction work going on in the building next to mine (but almost finished when I left in late February), and the pool wasn't back in use yet. But after the typhoons in the previous months I wouldn't hold that against anyone.
The staff at the reception was always nice and friendly, and helped with any issues or questions I had. Some things might take a little longer there, but I was on island time as well, so it didn't really matter.
The restaurant was only serving breakfast when I was there, which I had booked elsewhere, so I didn't try it. You can get drinks there all day long.
The WiFi is only working in and around the reception area. If it's working or not is always a matter of luck though; Cocobana seemed to have a signal more often then other places on the island when I was there. But be prepared to be without working internet connection for a couple of days as a worst case scenario. Also bring cash in lots of small banknotes if possible, since there is no ATM and many places/persons do not have enough change for the big banknotes.
All in all, Cocobana is a good resort with possibly the best location on Malapascua. I would stay there again.
