Coco Reef Resort - Reader Reports & Opinion
Holiday At Coco Reef
We've just come back from 12 Day in Tobago at Coco Reef (June '03), thanks in part to your Website! We had a great time, the island is wonderful, the people friendly and the hotel superb! We didn't go AL as we wanted to try some of the 'locals', and I'm glad we did!
The hotel is very good, but 150-300TT$ for a meal at the Tamara Resturant was is not always necessary. The Bistro resturant Bacchanals was very good, but the menu was always the same. Many of the local resturants, with food from 65-250TT$ for (250 for Lobster!), were excellent including Bonkers (Tocan Inn), Café Coco (connected to Coco Reef) and Pelican Reef!
The gardens are beautiful and 2 wedding parties did photo shoot while we were there.
For Island tour we can recommend Peter Cox, we went with Peter and Robert, who's knowledge of birds is amazing. Peter is an interesting character, and really knows his stuff.
For anyone who's interested I've some pictures at http://www.paul-taylor.de/tobago.
Tobago was well worth the trip!
Gift Shop At Coco Reef
As part of our all-inclusive deal at coco reef we have been given $350 to spend in the gift shop. Does anyone know anything about the standard of the shop - Will we struggle to spend so much money?
Hi - sorry for digressing but know you will understand when I say, fingers crossed, two weeks today we should be Tobago bound - wonderful.
Just a few last minute questions.
Do the rooms at the Coco Reef have tea/coffee making faciliteis? haven't seen it mentioned anywhere.
We're not anti-social but if on the odd occasion we wanted breakfast or even dinner on our balcony (we're staying AI) do you just pay a room service delivery charge or for the whole meal?
I am interested in booking the Coco Reef for a week next May. I would love to hear from you if you have been to this resort. I am looking for a quiet week with good accommodation and food. Do you have any recommendations?
Thanks very much.
Dining At The Coco Reef 29 Mar 2003
Glyn Kirpalani from Norfolk, UK
My Wife, Father and I have just enjoyed an excellent evening meal at the Coco Reef Tamaras Restaurant - fine food (large portions to please big eaters), varied choice and deserts to die for. We sort of expected all that, but also thought we would get the slow, inattentive service that some previous posters referred to - not a bit, in fact the staff were extremely friendly and attentive, despite a full house. Prices were high for Tobago, but cheap compared with European 5* hotels. The surroundings/ambience is suitably exotic, right down to the birds nesting in the chandalier! (No tables underneath, to avoid extras in the soup, but a nice touch that they leave the birds alone to come and go through the open shutters we thought). We will definitely go again.
