“Wonderful holiday, just returned”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014

We have just returned from SoCo. Excellent holiday. Beautiful sea views from a very spacious and lovely bedroom. Just a few steps down onto a sandy beach.
The staff were more than excellent, nothing was too much trouble for them. All of them were very helpful, but to name a few Michelle organised our two trips which I would highly recommend, a day trip around the island with your own driver, stephen was the driver and nothing was too much trouble, he took us to the plantation house, fruit park caves,the two oldest churches on the island, where the Caribbean Ocean meets the Atlantic Ocean, plus many more places to mention. We also went on a cattarman swimming with the turtles. Made me smile from ear to ear. A definite just, fun was had by all, lots if food drink and music. Going back to Michelle she exceeds her duties, I had mentioned to her I wished I bought a attitude doll from fruit park caves, she asked what it was like, next thing I know she gas organised for it to be picked up for me. Thank you you are a star. Michelle, Shannon and Erleen all excellent cocktail queens, thank you again. Dexter thank you for all your organisation skills making the holiday flow so smoothly. Only 35 guest were there. Lunch and dinner all good the only very little niggle was breakfast, would have been lovely to have different types if fruit in the morning and maybe cook the bacon fresh rather than earlier and keeping it hot. Wouldn't stop us going back though.
A tip for the water jugs, maybe back ones for coffee and white ones for water, as sometimes the water tastes of coffee.
As I said wonderful holiday, we are already looking to return this year.

Room Tip: We had room 304 wonderful views and sunsets, all of the rooms have wonderful views of sea. The two o...

We stayed at Soco early April this year. What a fantastic experience, from the welcome by Andrew to the final farewell from Dexter and his team. our spacious room was perfect and the free air con. more than efficient. Service at the reception, bar, restaurant and any other part of the hotel was second to none. We were made to feel at home from the first minute and called by our first names immediately by all of the staff. Every meal we had was perfect and the choice of drinks etc for an all inc. hotel was great. Waiter service at every meal was fantastic and every meal served with a lovely smile. Great bar person in Michelle who kept us entertained every time she was behind the bar. Dexters great knowledge of English football was good, he kept me informed on my sunbed of Hull City's cup semi final game. Thanks Dexter. Cup final on May 17th, up the tigers !! Cannot recommend Soco highly enough. Looking forward to a return visit in the not too distant future.

We stayed here for 2 weeks over the New Year. We had our 2 children aged 10 & 12 with us in a interconnecting room.

The Hotel Room was nice with a balcony over looking the pool and beach. The beds were nice and we also had a sofa that turned into a bed if we needed it.

The Bathroom was clean but very basic. I thought it should of been finished a bit better.

The food is where this hotel excels, we had some wonderful meals here and we were very happy with the regular changes of menu.

Overall very nice place with some very good staff.

We stayed at the hotel for a week towards the end of April and were not disappointed in any way. The welcome we received after a long journey was fantastic, greeted with a cold rum punch and cold towel plus bajan hospitality. The rooms are spacious with lots of drawers and storage space. The views from the 2nd floor up are amazing and fantastic to see this from your bed every morning. The food is freshly cooked with a good choice for everyone, in fact every meal time was an absolute pleasure with the finest of ingredients and carefully prepared by an amazing team. What can I say about the fantastic staff that hasn't already been said on here? They were attentive at all times, nothing was ever too much trouble and if you could bottle their enthusiasm, sparkle and warmth the world would be a better place! Dexter was just so fantastic taking care every time he saw us to make us feel special and not just a guest he's also pretty good with a camera making sure he gets the right shot for you, a treasure!. Michelle was incredible and you just can't help but smile whenever you see her, where does she get her energy from? Erlene and Shannon were also great, lovely girls! In fact not a bad word about anyone as they were all so good. We are already looking to book for next February and we've never returned to any holiday destination we've been to so definitely would recommend a visit here.

So pleased we did - perfect location, perfect staff, perfect food - what more could you want?

I've never written a review for trip advisor before but felt the service I received was phenomenal and really made the holiday experience a delight and felt compelled to let you know about this hidden gem of place.
All inclusive holidays are utter bliss of your looking for relaxation and the Soco team know how to pamper you
EVERY member of the team were pleasant and friendly (a common Baijan trait) and were willing to go above and beyond service standards I've ever experienced on previous holidays
The boutique hotel was aesthetically pleasing (I like to stay in nice places) food was phenomenal tasty thanks to the talented chefs especially head chef Sean
Pool and bar delightful and clean (important)
But the team especially made the stay extraordinary - from reception staff (Andrew) to security staff (Kendrick) bar and waiting staff & management(Michelle,Erleen,Shana,Victoria,Neale,Dexter)
Thank you all very much
Looking forward to a return in the near future
