Coco Reef Resort - Reader Reports & Opinion
Well I managed to convince my hubby that we need to go back!!
We are off to CCR for 2 weeks in October, and coming with us (5) are my mum and dad, their friends, my sister in law and brother in law, my mother in law and father in law so it really will be a fantastic holiday as not only I am going to be in Tobago staying at the CCR , all my wondeful family will be with me too. I am soooo lucky.
Second Visit To Coco Reef Feb 2008 15 Mar 2008
Ian Gordon from Kent, England
Having just returned from a second visit to Coco Reef, I would just like to give some general feed-back for those considering this resort. We had a superb holiday and would return for a third visit without hesitation. Food, accomadation and staff were excellent. The resort was fairly busy, but there were plenty of staff to cope and so no long waiting for service etc. We enjoyed the restaurant meals, especially as the courses were served hot which is so important to me (unless I've ordered ice-cream of course!). Lunches were also very good. We ate out a couple of times at restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel. Dillons and Latitude 11 are both recommended if you enjoy the occasional change of scenery. Typical prices of a meal for two with wine was 50-60 pounds sterling. Obviously this depends on your choices but is a rough guide if you're considering eating out. Also Latitude 11 is cash-only as they have no credit-card facility. We didn't do too may trips this time around and so other reviews are much more informative for trips out etc. However, it is so good to go out and about into local souvenir shops etc and have a pleasant chat instead of being pestered into purchasing something like so many other places in the world. The people are really friendly and laid-back. So, after a second visit, I can still recommend Coco Reef as an excellent choice of resort.
Eevenings At Coco Reef
We have just got back (yesterday!) from our second visit to the Coco Reef hotel. The accommodation, staff and food were excellent as usual. And of course the beach and snorkelling are outstanding.We did have one little gripe. The hotel now has nightly entertainment and the visiting entertainers tend to wind up their amplifiers so loud that chatting with friends in the foyer, on the terrace or upstairs on the veranda above the foyer, is a bit of a challenge. And there seems to be nowhere else to have a quiet post-prandial chat and drink. We have mentioned it to the management and suggested that the entertainers be asked to turn it down a bit.
In Room Safes
I stayed in the Coco Reef in January. As yet there are no room safes. I don't think it's really a problem as the reception staff are so helpful and never keep you waiting. It's a decent hotel and I would consider the lack of room safes a minor inconvenience.
I recently read in a magazine that the CCR has had a refurb on the beach bar - anybody know anything?
Really sad that I am not going out to Tobago this year - I wonder if I can persuade my hubby into going this year - ho hum! any ideas??!!
