Family winter escape to paradise
Posted Feb 17, 2016 on Hotels
My husband and I, and our 1yr old spent a week at the Cove. We can’t wait to go back! The hotel grounds are well designed—lots of privacy and room to roam around. Landscaping is beautiful. Grassy hills, trees, cliffs, etc. They took advantage of the views and natural beauty. Our room was wonderful. Spacious, modern and in great shape. The beaches are beautiful, well maintained and have gorgeous, calm water. Beaches have more than enough loungers--spaced out for privacy. There are lots of paddle boards, kayaks and snorkel gear available (free). They have ample staffing at each beach if you need towels, drinks, etc. The infinity pool is up on a hill between the 2 coves. Great views, but it’s breezy up there! I think on the website it says that they have 3 restaurants. Not quite true—it’s really 1 restaurant/1 menu with 3 different seating areas. The dinner menu changed every day. The food was fantastic--varied, fresh and delicious! It’s not bland “resort” food. Portions were generous. Presentation was wonderful. They have a kids menu and an infant menu. Kids menu: good variety, reasonable prices. Infant menu: good variety and free of charge. Staff was amazing! Every person we encountered was genuinely friendly, helpful and made us feel at home. They each went above and beyond where ever they could. The resort is pretty remote. This was a positive for us. If you want to relax, swim, kayak, snorkel on gorgeous, quiet, private beaches—this is the place for you!
