Coco Reef Resort - Reader Reports & Opinion
Going to Coco Reef in three weeks can anyone tell me about tipping. Are there porters who take your luggage to your rooms and if you are picked up at the airport by car do you tip the driver. Can you also tell us what the acceptable tip would be?
Safety Boxes At Coco Reef
Hi there, we are visiting Tobago and Coco Reef for the first time at the beginning of April. Excitement is mounting already and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions, but the most pressing one for my husband at the moment is the size of the safety boxes in the reception area! Are they just big enough for documents or can you get gadgets (laptop and the usual stuff some men can't live without!) into them? Cheers, Alison
Coco Reef New Building
When we last stayed at the CoCo Reef in May 2003 the hotel owners had just completed a new building opposite the main entrance (on the other side of the road).
The staff were tight lipped about what it was going to be but indicated it may become an additional restaurant but not part of the AI package.
Does anyone know what this bacame and if it is open to residents.
We are looking forward to revisiting this resort in September 2005.
Coco Reef (our Opinion)
Just returned from two fabulous weeks at Coco Reef with my partner Sue. I dont know where to start, everthing was spot on. Lovely room with ocean view, helpful and friendly staff, excellent food and the lagoon (so what if it is man made!) was a wonderful place to swim and snorkel. We were made to feel welcome from the minute we arrived until our very sad departure.
We were both a bit dismayed to read some of the negative reports posted recently on this forum, but without wishing to appear rude to any one I think they are nit-picking. We have been to other 5* resort hotels in the Caribbean and they were not a patch on this one.
I wouldnt hesitate to reccomend The Coco Reef to anyone who wants a relaxing holiday in lovely surroundings.
Sun Shades On The Beach
My wife and I are about to return to the CoCo Reef in September 2005. Last time we were there was May 2003 when we had a fantastic time.
My only gripe was needing to get a towel on a sunbed at 6:30am in order to secure some shade for my wife who cannot sit in the sun.
It looks as though this is still the case and as more people realise it, the time gets pushed to being earlier and earlier.
No wonder the bars are empty by 11pm everyone is in bed as they need to get up early!
Booking the Tamaras restaurant seems to be suffering with the same problem.
I would have thought the hotel management would have read this forum as it is the best.
Is there a solution?
