“Paradise on a good budget”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

Well Barbados!! and not at silly prices either. Coconut Court is of a good standard and situated in an ideal location. Yes we did spend a reasonable amount of time sitting at the beach bar chatting with Shaun while drinking Banks or rum punch. The rooms are of a good size and are kept clean and tidy (which is not an easy task with my 16 year old teenage daughter). The beach is right on the doorstep and is beautiful and only a short stroll to pick up the famous boardwalk which takes you straight to Rockley beach and Hasting Plaza where there are shops, bars and resturants. I would certainly recommend this hotel and we will be returning later this year.

Room Tip: Superior sea view room is good

I want to start by saying that I really enjoyed my stay at the Coconut Court and in Barbados. I would like to have given the hotel a higher rating, but there were a couple things I couldn't ignore.

First, the good: Good location, central to many attractions. Nice beach location, beautiful grounds and good tropical drinks. The rooms were good sized and featured a microwave, toaster and fridge. Excellent deal. We got a great price. It was worth it.

Now the not so good: The food was pretty awful. Breakfast was included, which was good because we would have never paid for what we got (cereal, toast, stale croissants, good fruit). The lunch food was not much better. We just ate off-site after the first day. Our sheets were dirty when we arrived. Now, while I don't expect something like this to happen, I realize that it can. However, it took over an hour to get the situation sorted out with someone from security coming up, bringing the wrong sized sheets, then coming back thinking he had the wrong sized sheets before we stopped him, took the sheets and made the bed ourselves. The reaction when we told the front desk the next morning was less than concerned, although when we mentioned it at checkout they did take a few drinks off our tab. Overall, these two things are what keeps me from giving it 4 stars.

It's not a five star location, and it doesn't have to be to have fun. If you realize this and get a good deal (and maybe eat more at Mama Mia's across the street or the other seafood places along the water for dinner) you'll enjoy the Coconut Court.

Room Tip: We had an ocean front room which was great, you could walk out your patio and to the beach or pool...

Dear Friend, thank you for taking the time to write this review for us. I am glad that you had a great time. I am sorry that you had an issue with your bed sheets. This is quite a surprise as we really pride ourselves on keeping our guest rooms and hotel areas spotlessly clean. Sorry for any inconvenience caused and sorry for the less than attentive service recived from our Front Desk team. We usually get such high commendation from our guests about our friendly staff too. I hate to think that one of our team let us down.
Breakfast is advertised as a Continental breakfast only. Cereal, toast, fruit, pastries etc. is exactly that. Croissants are not made locally on the island; these are imported frozen then thawed and cooked each morning. Possibly not what you're used to at home in New York but not bad either. There are lots of great restaurants and cafes within walking distance from our hotel so if you prefer to eat out then there is a great choice for you within a few minutes walk or bus ride to suit any pocket. Our location is absolutely great with everything practically on your door step.
Take care, enjoy the rest of your winter in the Big Apple!
Best regards, Linda, Jason, Mark and the team at Coconut Court.

We recently stayed a week with a group of friends-our second visit. We had a room with an ocean view on the top floor. The view was beautiful. Sometimes the flights of stairs seemed to get longer by the end of the day! We left our balcony door open and enjoyed the breeze and the sound of the water. Our room was very clean, fairly large, and had a recently remodeled bathroom. The beach is good for relaxing with comfortable chairs and shade trees. We wore water shoes since there are quite a few rocks on the beach and in the water. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was as advertised: coffee, cereal, toast, pastry, some fruit, and juice. We enjoyed the oatmeal. We thought the lunch buffet overpriced. There are many good restaurants,including Tapas and Pisces. The Oistins Friday Night Fish Fry was fun. We plan to go back!

Dear Friend, thank you for writing this review for us. I am happy that you enjoyed your recent visit. I am sorry that you had a challenge with your husband's health and dietary requirements. You are correct, we are not an All Inclusive hotel and while we do offer Full breakfast and Halfboard options, we prefer to leave the All Inclusive options to the large hotel chains. Thank you and all the best to you and your husband.

Looking for a nice, cozy hotel with a great location and good customer service?
Not so keen on those amazing (and not so personal) five-star hotels?
Loving beautiful, guaranteed sea side views and your own private balcony?
Interested on cooking a few meals yourself or having something for the worst hunger on your own fridge?
Appreciate clean and spacious room?
Agreed?
OK, book this hotel.

We chose Coconut Court for our first holiday in the Caribbean ever. What a good choice we made! Personally we don't look for fancy five stars but a place to feel like at home. We value good service, clean environment, balcony(!) with a nice view and reasonable prices. Read almost all the reviews before going there and most of them are accurate. (I was impressed by the fact that the hotel management really takes time to read and reply the reviews!)
Yes, there are some birds at the breakfast area -you're in the tropics. Cover your plate or look after it.
Yes, it is an older building, but well and regularly maintained.
Yes, the beach underwater is more rocky than some other. But! It is so much more beautiful and comfortable with the palm trees, it's shallower and the reef gives you an aquarium right on your own beach. The day you wish to feel the white powdery sand, walk 200m and you're there. We loved the fact your own beach is lovely and interesting and then there's a walking distance to a few different kinds of beaches. If you have very sensitive feet for the little rocks, like my husband has, bring shoes, like he did. He wore them once. :)

Have to say, we only had one idea for improvement. We paid for the room with the best view (worth it!!) and for those rooms you can't ask for a room with gas stove etc. The last day we suggested one of the owners to have small electric cooking plates and pots to borrow to the ones hoping for it. She asked if we actually asked for one? No, we didn't. We should have, they have even those!

So no complaints here! Just pure recommendations! We loved the hotel! And that's mostly because the owners love people and enjoy working for their customers. And it shows!

We'll be back.

Ps. If any hesitations or questions, email the hotel. You'll get a quick and accurate answer.

Ja muutama sana suomeksi.
Kodikas hotelli, jossa todella välitetään asiakkaista. Erinomainen palvelu, ihana ranta ja upea näköala huoneista, joissa rajoittamaton merinäkymä (on extramaksun arvoinen!).
Omistajat kertoivat, että suomalaisen matkatoimiston valikoimassa on nyt myös heidän hotellinsa (mikä pitää paikkansa) ja he odottivat kovasti vieraita pohjoisesta ja miettivät miten parhaiten huomioida nuo kaukomatkaajat.
Me todella viihdyttiin ja ensi kerralla varataan sama hotelli! Suosittelemme!

Room Tip: Rooms have different prices. Priced by the view. If you appreciate an uninterrupted view of the sea...

Dear Friend, thank you - such a lovely review! I am always so pleased when our guests love our hotel as much as we do. I always tell people that Coconut Court is a labour of love. What a great place to work too. I tell my staff; "these guests pay our wages and put food on the table for our families - mine included" so we look after them - and have fun doing it! Barbados is the New York of the Caribbean - fab beaches, friendly people and everything that you need to have a relaxing and quiet holiday or a rocking good time! What's not to love? You said that this was your first time to the Caribbean? l hope that it will not be your last to Barbados or to our Coconut Court. If you visit at the same time each year, you will be sure to see some familiar faces. Our repeaters enjoy meeting each other every year on holiday. I will look forward to welcoming you and your husband back to our little slice of paradise again soon. Don't take too long to come back!
One love, Linda, Jason, Mark and the Coconut team.

We stayed for 14 days at the Coconut Court hotel (Dec 2011 to Jan 2012).
Our impression is that the beach is the strong card of this hotel. The beach is quite nice if you like a quiet little lagoon to snorkle in and actually see lots of beautiful tropical marine species of fish. Also the natural shade from the coconut palms is unmatched in this area of the coast.
If a picture perfect beach with only sandy bottom in the ocean is what you are looking for then Accra beach would be a better bet (although both this and the little beach by the Hilton is within easy walking distance).

More problematic it was for us to feel comfortable with the general standard of the hotel itself. First off the staff was very helpful and serviceminded, the security guy and the activities desk in particular was very nice. So if staff was not the issue then what was ?

Well we stayed in a guestroom that was supposed to be one of the best (?) and the look was really tired, with noisy and not very good air conditioning. The bed was rock hard and most things broken like the shower head, the iron and the tea kettle (although they actually changed the iron and shower head for us!). What´s probably worst was the breakfast "buffet"... a few cereals and bread.. Still hungry ? You can buy an omelette for 18 Barbados dollars if you feel like it ...Also It feels strange that the two types of juice that are available both are made from concentrate... really ? In a tropical land, come on !

We had expected much more of a ´Bajan flair´ on the hotel, but it felt strongly that it caters to mostly british and american tourists that want their travel destination to be "just like home".
Lucky for us we did not take an all-inclusive package (that we actually considered at first). That would have landed us overpriced and mediocre food instead of letting us sample the many nice restaurants all around this beautiful island.
The BIG positive experience on our trip was in contact with the lovely Bajan people and just being on this tropical paradise destination. We loved Barbados but was unimpressed by the Coconut Court hotel.

Dear Friend, thanks for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. First of all please let me apologise for the issues that you experienced with your guest room. We usually get such great reviews from our customers about how clean and well serviced our property is kept. We may not be a five star hotel but cleanliness and having everything in working order is a top priority of ours. I apologise if you did not experience this.
Breakfast is advertised as a Continental breakfast and we provide coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cereals, toast and preserves, local pastries, fresh and tinned fruit, porridge etc. Just about every hotel and restaurant on the island serves juice made from concentrate. Our tropical island is the ninth most densely populated country in the world (most people dont know this)- what land is available for agriculture is planted with sugar cane for rum production. Our island is made of coral stone so it's not very fertile either. Just about all of the fruit and vegetables that you consume in Barbados is imported. That would explain why our food is more expensive than what you are accustomed to at home. Dont doubt for a minute though, we have some of the finest restaurants in the world and you can eat expensive or cheaply - and everything in between. We do not offer all inclusive at Coconut Court - I have pretty strong views on this subject....I don't think that this type of tourism is good for the economy of a country - everyone should have the oppurtunity to earn an honest living from tourism - not just an elite few. A bed and breakfast hotel like ours allows guests to choose for themselves where they would like to eat. They can choose to stay in and enjoy what we have to offer or they can venture out to experience what the rest of the island has to offer. Thankfully, most of our guests enjoy both eating in and out so everybody wins! I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us but I would encourage you to return to Barbados again in the future. We are a beautiful island in the sun! Best regards, Linda, Jason, Mark and the team at Coconut Court.
