Coco Reef Resort - Reader Reports & Opinion
Coco Reef Evenings
Ok so a question for the ladies who have been to coco reef, I am off to coco reef in March, I canít wait to get there, but after reading all the the reviews the elegantly casual dress code is getting me a bit confused, I understand it to mean no shorts for the ladies, so Iím presuming skirts that are above the knee are fine ? ( I donít mean mini skirts, havenít the legs anymore unfortunately) . Also the no t-shirts for men thing, does this apply to womens smarter vest tops ( made of t-shirt material) of which I have many ,which on previous hols to the Caribbean I have worn as smart in the evening. Also it mentions no flip flops, I have a pair of leather braided toe thongs, as all the shops seem to like calling them now, which in effect are flip flops but dressier. Would I be ok with these?? I presume flat mule type shoes are fine too?? Any advice would be gladly received. (Sorry to all the men who will be tutting and groaning now about women and clothes etc etc, youíll never understand so donít even try, just accept that a woman likes to know she has the right thing to wear on her holiday!)
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?

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.
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.
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
