Every single day you can wake up to chirping birds, eat conch at the Coco Beach Bar, walk the glorious white sand beach, swim in that clear and calm turquoise water, free dive for sand dollars, watch sea turtles paddle around the marina, chat with the fishermen at the fillet board or go fishing yourself, work your way through the frozen drink menu, dance to Chris "Da Burner" Russell or the DJ at the Tipsy Seagull Bar, and finish your day gazing at the stars. Treasure Cay is a remote community on a remote island, but there is always something going on at the resort and they know how to make their own fun. There is a weekly fish fry, a bonfire on the beach, a pizza night, and every evening you can listen/dance to music and watch sports on the TV's at the Tipsy Seagull Bar...and you'll be surprised by the amount of people who just show up out of nowhere for all of these events. During our last visit, over Memorial Day, the resort arranged for special entertainment including a fantastic warm-up band (I wish I knew the name of the group), a Junkanoo parade through the bar, and K.B., a rake-n-scrape and calypso singer of note who has a VERY entertaining way with words...the place was totally packed. We like to eat outside at the Coco Beach Bar and have enjoyed cracked conch and fried grouper, both are excellent, and the view of the spectacular beach and ocean makes it a very special experience. The resort property is also home to a well-stocked grocery store; liquor store; mini-mart; the Cafe La Florence Bakery where you can buy cinnamon rolls, bread, the daily special, and a different cake or pastry for every day of the week (Florence's husband confides that when he makes the rum cake it has more rum); a bicycle and golf cart rental and a hardware store that sells fishing tackle, among other things. Prices for food and most other items are slightly higher than what you would pay at home, but when you talk to the locals and hear about the logistics involved in bringing things to the island it doesn't seem that unreasonable. The property also includes a full-service marina where you'll see sailboats, trawlers and multimillion-dollar yachts and sportfishing boats. Everything mentioned is within easy walking distance. In general, this is a quiet, relaxing, laid-back resort geared around the truly magnificent beach and ocean (it's difficult to comprehend that the ocean really is all of those shades of blue, it seems impossible) with just the right amount of nighttime activities thrown in. This is not a fancy, trendy, pretentious place with crazy out-of-control partying; you're most likely to be vacationing with families, couples, boat owners and fishermen and their friends and crew, and other people who just enjoy the island life and hanging out.
All rooms and suites are in townhouse-type buildings that overlook either the marina or the gardens. The beach is no more than a five-minute walk away, unless you make a stop by the bakery to see what's just out of the oven! We have visited this resort twice and have stayed in a standard room and also a one-bedroom deluxe suite. The suite had a bedroom loft and also a fully-equipped kitchen that allowed us to do our own cooking; that came in very handy when we wanted to cook the fish we caught during our little expedition on the boat that we rented from the very nice people at JIC Boat Rentals, another vendor right on the property. No matter what accommodation you choose you will find at the very least a coffee maker, refrigerator, soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, fluffy white towels for the bathroom, beach towels on request, cable TV that includes some premium channels and a faster Wi-Fi connection than what I have at home. The rooms we have stayed in were decorated with tropical prints and rattan furniture. On the day of our check-out we noticed some rooms being redecorated with darker mahogany furniture that looked to have a more modern feel. Our rooms, including the bath and the kitchen, were always very clean and housekeeping visits daily; however, you are on a tropical island so you will probably run across some little sugar ants and lizards sunning on your patio. And because almost every day is a sunny day and there is very little rain you will not find lush green grass, but there are always some flowering trees and bushes and gardeners tending to the grounds.
We found everyone working at the resort to be friendly and helpful . Avis Miller is the extremely nice Hotel Manager and she made sure that everything was OK with our room and that we knew about all the activities. The kitchen at Coco's never denied me my daily fix of cracked conch even though one day they were busy getting ready for the fish fry! Service at the restaurant and bar was always prompt and it was fun talking with the servers. Employees were constantly walking the property, tidying up the place and preparing for the next event. Everyone seemed to enjoy their work and there was a happy rhythm flowing throughout the entire property.
We feel that this a very special place and we can't wait to return!
