Coco Reef Resort - Reader Reports & Opinion
Coco Reef And Children..a Perfect Combination.
we have just returned from 2 wonderful weeks at coco reef.throughout our stay our 2 year old daughter was welcomed by staff and guests alike including everyone in tamaras restaurant! the beach is ideal for young children and unlike others on the island gently sloping and sheltered from rough waves.so if you are thinking of visiting the resort please dont be put off by some of the other comments on this site.coco reef is an ideal hotel for people with young families.
ps if you venture up the leeward coast of the island visit parlatuvier.the shrimps served by gloria joseph at the riverside restaurant are amazing,much better than the food at jemmas in speyside which seemed a bit of a tourist trap. one word of advice to those of you who hire a car....charlotteville really is as far as you can go....dont be tempted to take the dirt track on to pirates bay...there's been a landslide about 1/4 mile along the track and as breathtaking as the views are,reversing a 4wd back along a narrow road half way up the hillside is quite an experience!
for those of you about to go have a wonderful time...coco reef is an amazing hotel....and say hullo to bernecia and liz from little lucy.
I wonder if anyone can tell me whether beach/pool towels are complimentary or provided at the hotel. They are such a bulk to put in the suitcase and other All Inclusive hotels we've stopped in recently have provided them daily ie we've collected them from a hut near the pool area and taken them back at the end of the day. It would be great to have that bit extra room in the suitcase for other things.
Thanks in advance for any replies - just over 5 weeks to go - can't wait!
Overbooking Shambles At Coco Reef
This is just a warning for anyone travelling from the UK who has booked accomodation at Coco Reef hotel. Their computer apparantly went down in December and when it came back up it didn't have all the bookings in it so when we arrived last week we were told at the airport that they didn't have a room for us despite me booking last September via Hays and Jarvis. The first 2 nights of my 7 night stay were spent in another hotel nowhere near as good as Coco Reef and I will be seeking compensation for them.
The reason for the post is it seemed to be happening to most people from most tour operators Virgin, Kuoni etc and there were some very unhappy people there the local agents were as much in the dark as we were and Coco Reef only informed them 2 hours before we landed.
I suggest you check with your tour operator that they phone the Coco Reef and confirm you will have a room ready when you arrive.
I have booked a fortnights holiday in Coco Reef October 2004. Can anyone tell me if there are activities on offer during the day ie volleyball, football etc. Also what is the weather like in Tobago in October. Thank You
Safety Deposit Boxes
Going to Trinidad in a fortnight followed by Tobago the week after - counting the days now! Can anyone tell me if there are safety deposit boxes in the rooms at Coco Reef? Most hotels we've been to over recent years have had them so I expect there would be here too, but confirmation would be nice. I can't see them mentioned in the brochures.
Thanks for any help you can give.
