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.
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
Anyone Holidaying 6 Oct
Only 6 weeks to our holiday
Wondering if anyone else travelling then - staying at Coco Reef for our Silver Wedding.
Decided to go B/B, is this a good idea, have not been All Inclusive before, hope we made the right decision. What is the cost of a 3 course meal at coco reef.
Has Anyone Booked ,with The Coco Reef Directly
interested in booking our holiday directly with the hotel and booking flights rather than booking via a travel agent. I was wondering if others have done this with the coco reef and if so how did it work our (price wise) compaired to the travel agent prices.
I sent coco reef an email a few days ago, have not heard back from them yet, i guess they are enjoying the sun at the moment
Coco Reef Versus Tobago Hilton....thoughts Please
I have visted both Coco Reef and the Tobago Hilton a few times , last visit being in June this year, but I have not stayed at either. I am planning a surprise weekend "getaway" to Tobago for my fiance's birthday(and our anniversary as a couple) and I have narrowed it down to these two hotels.
I am leaning towards Coco Reef (even though Hilton's rates are slightly cheaper) but I would like to get some feedback from anyone who has been to both and comparisons of pros and cons. I prefer the Hilton's rooms and pool but it is a bit out of the way and I really want to have dinner at Cafe Coco. Also, I am not too sure how I feel about Coco Reef's "man made" beach, however I really love everything else about the hotel and with both rates breakfast is included.
What I am looking for is that romantic ambience,that extra sepcial touch that would be perfect for celebrating a birthday /anniversary as well. Any comments will be well appreciated!
p.s. does anyone have the spa rate for massages at Coco Reef ? If you do you can PM me the information, thanks!
