manchester, United Kingdom
The hotel has approximately 53 cottages and these range from standard, sea view, sea front and plantation house. With all the rooms they have the same internal decor but hence the names the sea view have unrestricted vies of the sea, the sea front are the ones placed at the bottom on the same hill the hotel is on and these are rooms that also have there own private plunge pools and the plantation house are larger in size with two bedrooms for up to 5 adults to stay in.
The hotel has a medium sized reception and a small bar area. The main restaurant that is included in the all inclusive is situated across from the bar and the restaurant that is also open to non hotel guests is underneath the main one. The pool area isn't huge but is stunning with a beautiful infinity pool surrounded by wooden floors. When you first arrive at the hotel there is no sign on the road up to it with the name and even when you finally pull up to reception there is still nothing to say that you are there but it looks very nice with flowers on the porch area. It gives it that edge of exclusivity. The only sign that is on the main road is one for the restaurant that is open to guests and non hotel guests which is called 'Sheer' and this is quite a large sign. That is the only thing that tells you that you are at the Cocobay hotel really!
Overall this is a perfect hotel choice for those either getting married in Antigua or on honeymoon - it is quiet and intimate and there are rarely children in the resort. The hotel only except children over the age of 12 anyway and most often they will only be here if there is a wedding party here. The staff are great, the food is great and the whole place is so picturesque that you can truly relax and enjoy your holiday in Antigua.
