Coco Reef Resort - Reader Reports & Opinion
Coco Reef Watersports
I've recently discovered this website which is brilliant. We (6 of us) are hoping to come to Coco Reef for the 2nd week of a cricket package which includes Trinidad for the first week, next March.
There's been some excellent reviews and it's really helped us to decide that this is where we want to stay. Having gathered up a large amount of brochures with Coco Reef in, it seems to say that the non-motorised watersports are complimentary whether or not you are staying on a b&b basis or all inclusive. Is this correct?
We will be staying B&B but have been told that we can choose to be AI once we arrive, although, as we're on a bit of a budget it does seem very expensive. I've trawled through some of the forum and there's obviously two ways of looking at this (we've stayed AI before in Bali & Mexico, both of which were excellent, but considerably cheaper than Coco Reef). I think we'd like to see a bit of the Island and would enjoy lively (but not wild!) evenings out with a decent meal choice, preferably international and Tobagonian food options so we're all catered for, so we're thinking that we should stick with B&B.
Any comments re. watersports and recommended places to go would be really useful - we've got the Rough Guide to Trin & Tobago and it sounds quite easy to get about. We're only there for a week and would like to see some of the Island without having to go out every day travelling. What places of interest could we realistically combine to make, say, 4 days out?
Thanks for any information you can provide
Children At Coco Reef, Tobago
I am somewhat concerned about your comments regarding chidren. I have two children aged 5 and 6, who I am taking to the Coco Reef in October. My children are very well behaved and have excellent manners, I alike many do not enjoy trying to have a meal when there are noisy children around and I can assure you my children are not in this category. While I was on holiday last year with my children plus 2 others, we dined out with them every evening and received many comments about how well behaved they are.
As a busy parent and having a husband that has a very pressurised job, we find that our holidays are the times for all of us to "chill out" and enjoy each others company. I do not see how you can refer to parents being selfish by taking them to Coco Reef. My children will return from there holiday having has 2 quality weeks with their mummy and daddy having enjoyed swimming, relaxing and eating out with their parents. Something that many parents are not able to do!! I hope that you will agree that I am not selfish just a caring loving parent wanting to spend some time with her children whilst enjoying the beautiful island of Tobag o.
Places To Eat
While I am in Tobago in October it is my parents 35th Wedding Anniversary (my parents will also be with us). For their wedding anniversary I would love to plan them a very special and romantic evening. We are all staying at the Coco Reef. Anybody got any suggestions?
Coco Reef's New Restaurant
Does anybody know if the new restaurant built by, and close to, the Coco Reef Hotel can be used by guests of the hotel who are on the All Inclusive plan - or is one tied to the two restaurants on site?
Coco Reef - Is It As Good As The Reviews ?
Question - we are looking at booking a noneymoon for next May. We will be touring Venezuala and then relaxing on Tobago. Is Coco Reff the place ? All review seem to say that it is. Te othet resort that we are looking at is The Grand Courlan. How do they compare ?
Any thoughts/help will be GREATLY received.
Also, what is the Coco dress code - I saw a comment somewhere that it is shirt and tie for dinner - if so I need to go prepared
